Ladies! My wedding planning adventures are starting to get underway. And of course it's so super exciting!! But I'm not gonna lie though, it's also a little bit daunting with everything that comes along with it. There are about a million things to think about, and people to include, and ways to do every little thing - and a lot of that is swirling around in my head. But the biggest issue for me?? (And probably most brides in some way or another I'm assuming...) The biggest issue will definitely be the budget.
We had always been thinking about a handmade/DIY wedding, and we most definitely still are. I can't wait to see what kind of beautiful decorations and things we can come up with in order to make this wedding unique and special for us! We are planning a casual wedding at the beach in the fall (October, more specifically), and a lot of our ideas are centered around the beach theme as well. Right now we're thinking lots of sand, seashells, mason jars, twine, burlap, bamboo, bright blues and teals with light greens, candles and twinkle lights. And we want to make and create as much as we possibly can on our own. And luckily, I have a super crafty man who will be awesome at stuff like this. (Y'all remember my handmade Valentine's card?!)
But at the same time, there are things that we can't do or make on our own, and those will probably end up being the most expensive. For one, we'll probably have to rent tables and chairs. That's kind of unavoidable, so whatever... But other things like invitations? I'm not really planning on hand-making those, but I also can't spend tons of money on them either! And I want to be able to do cute favors, without spending a fortune.
Sooo...I'm calling out to all of you! I would looove to hear your ideas, tips, tricks, awesome websites, places to buy bulk for cheap, or just whatever you can offer. If you've already planned your own wedding on a smaller budget, let me know how you did it! Or if you haven't planned your own wedding and just saw something cute that you want to share, leave a link for that too :) I need all the help I can get here ladies. Help me out with whatever information you have, and I'll be sure to check it out. And I'll of course be so grateful for the assistance of this amazing blog community!
But mostly, I cannot wait to marry this goofball with crazy hair, no matter how much we spend on the wedding :)
