helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Lilly (today’s bride) looked to the new version of Cinderella for inspiration for her wedding day. She pulled off a gorgeous wedding by incorporating beautiful details that complemented her venue! I LOVE the unique, embroidered wedding dress she found on eBay. And how beautiful are the indoor bridal photos her photographer captured? Enjoy this beautiful, Cinderella inspired wedding! xoxo, Jessica

How many guests did you have?

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

We love to travel so we had a little bit of travel decoration in our day.  I love Disney movies, so the theme was the 2015 “Cinderella” movie.

 

 

Did you do any DIY projects or create any handmade items for your weddings?

We bought our flowers wholesale and used Walgreens to create our stationery. We also relied on Ebay for a lot of purchases like my dress!

 

 

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH to compare prices and called many vendors to find the most affordable.

 

 

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

Keep it simple because it is still beautiful and as special (the most special detail is that you are marrying the love of your life)

 

 

What was your biggest splurge?

The Venue. We rented the whole B&B for our wedding day and the night (our bridal party got to spend the night with us and enjoyed the most wonderful B&B that we have ever stayed in)

 

 

What was your favorite detail?

That the whole wedding was planned by both my husband and I and we had a lot of fun planning and shopping together.

 

 

What is the most memorable moment of your day?

We enjoyed tremendously the whole day because everything that we did was different and memorable to us.
