Our Budget Savvy Wedding All our flowers were purchased wholesale and arranged by my DOC My wedding dress was custom made by a local seamstress. I purchased my blue wedding shoes on Amazon for less than $50. I created all of the paper goods for our wedding and reception, including these programs! My birdcage veil and garter, which were made by friends! I wore colored wedding jewelry, to express a bit more of my personality. Bridesmaids dresses in shades of teal and turquoise My handsome groom! Our first look- we chose to see each other before the ceremony so we could get photos out of the way and enjoy our reception with our guests! The grounds of the Sam Davis Home- a beautiful Civil War plantation. At the entrance to the plantation One of the gifts we gave the groomsmen were their cashmere socks! Loved this photo! :) We also gifted the groomsmen their ties, which were made from the same fabric as the bridesmaids dresses. I made 12 tissue paper pomander balls to decorate the aisle. So much cheaper than the real thing! My family helped me wrap and package up our biodegradable wooden utensils into individual place settings. I used leftover paper scraps from our invitations and twine to tie them together. I scoured thrift stores and ebay for vintage milk glass and blue mason jars for an eclectic and country looking centerpiece. I collected cheap glass jars to use for our candy buffet, and created signs for them as well with leftover paper from our invitations. A family friend made our three tiered wedding cake with simple buttercream frosting. It was delicious! I created labels with our monogram on them for our favor bags for our guests to take home candy! We purchased our wine from Trader Joe’s for very cheap and created these custom wine labels so that our guests wouldn’t know we bought the cheap stuff!
