On the topic of weddings.  Was yours on budget?  DIY?  or did you hire a wedding planner?

And discuss.....

Mine was on a budget. But I got a package that came with a planner.

Mine was on budget. A lot DIY. I made my own centerpieces, favors, invitations and bouquets. Did my own makeup. My aunt made our wedding cake and it was to die for. Rented a community hall in the mountains and found a decent caterer and DJ. Set up the hall myself. It wasn't overly fancy but it had good food, good music, drinks and lots of fun! I did shop around and found the dress of my dreams on a super incredible sale.

Centerpieces on Apr 06, 2016 @ 02:09 pm

I bought large, clear glass vases on sale at IKEA. I ordered white and red roses for both centerpieces and bouquets and filled the vases with water and roses. Got small glass tea light holders at IKEA and put 4 tea lights around the vases. Also made red, brown and ivory squares out of taffeta and put those underneath the vases so that they overlapped. Simple and easy but I liked it.

Mine was on a budget, although my mother did pay for most of it. But we still kept it as reasonable as possible. We saved money by getting married on a Friday, off season. We got the hall for something crazy like half-off. The place that we did it was this barn that had been renovated into this beautiful lodge, and the ceremony space was in the building so we didn't have to move venues. The best part about this place was that they handled almost everything. We didn't have to worry about catering because they did it, they did decorations, they had an old Inn that was a couple of centuries old and absolutely beautiful for the wedding night. We got a reasonably priced DJ, made our own invitations, and had a family friend as the photographer (he's actually a professional photographer, but gave us a great deal). Definitely did not hire a wedding planner. My dress was under $550 after taxes, and I actually didn't need alterations. I was hoping to spend a little less on the dress, but I am plus size so I expected to pay slightly more. Even so, I think it was reasonable, considering the place I got my dress had $2000 gowns lying around. I actually thought planning the wedding was a fun process. The only thing that stressed me out was someone that I had to deal with, but I won't say any more than that haha.

DIY Reception at my house and did the wedding at the town hall. Bought my dress from China, Three Hundred pounds, my veil and tiara online for less than Fifty pounds.

Hardly seems important now though, haha.

The only thing that made me unhappy was I wanted my mum to walk me down the aisle, but she didn't want me to upset my dad.
