- Wedding: October 2012
There are so many people helping us with our wedding, I’m blown away by the love and support. It has saved us so much money and many things I might have gone without or lessened the quality of if it had not been for these people.
My parents – 47% budget
His mom – 53% budget (Short story, FI’s dad passed away 6 years ago and that is when his mom gave him the money to set aside for his wedding someday and FI did just that. He didn’t blow it. He invested it. I am so blessed to have a financially responsible FI!)
Flowers – Friend (She’s making 5 bouquets and 5 boutineers with real flowers. We just bought the flowers wholesale at the farmer’s market for her. She picks them up the day before and does it all in one day!)
Fake flower corsages – FI’s aunt
Videography – FI’s brother-in-law
Video booth – FI’s brother-in-law
Bridesmaid shawls and groosmen hankies – FI’s mom (she’s awesome)
Music – all our ceremony music is being performed by awesome, talented friends
Invitations design – coworker friend who does graphic arts
Centerpieces – coworker friend
Cake topper – coworker friend
Engagement pix – my bestie and FI’s brother-in-law
Table number pix – my sister and her husband
Cakes – my sister
My hair – my roommate who does hair professionally
Make-up – my friend who worked for years at a fancy make-up store
lunch for the day of wedding – a couple at our church who owns a Subway
Not to mention, so many of these friends and family will be helping us the day of with replenishing appetizers, serving kids meals, etc. I am so blessed and thankful!
I hope I didn’t forget anything or anyone! I’m just so amazed to see it listed out this way.
