plan a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank!

Today we're featuring a lovely pink and white outdoor wedding. Kelly and Shawn did a wonderful job of keeping their wedding at $4K. And how cute is their dog? I love when couples have their fur-babies part of their big day. Enjoy this $4K Ontario wedding! xoxo, Jessica

Newmarket, ON  |  Madsen's Greenhouse Banquet & Chapel



What was your budget?

We didn’t really set a budget; we just knew we didn’t want to spend a lot of money. In all we spent around $4,000.

Dress: $1,100

Dinner: $2,000

Suit: $250

Venue: $300

Flowers: $250

Hair & makeup: $150



How many guests did you have?

We had 20 people.



What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?

We included our dog in the wedding… she’s our baby!



What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

We didn’t have the wedding at a big hall. Instead, we all went to the restaurant The Keg for dinner.



What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. Take the time to enjoy your special day.



What was your biggest splurge?

My dress was my biggest splurge.



What was your favorite detail?

I loved my Betsy Johnson shoes with the blue bottoms on them and I loved using my grandmothers antique purse.



What is the most memorable moment of your day?

Having all of our family together to celebrate.
