helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

Every Friday, we're showcasing some of our favorite and most trafficked real weddings our readers love! We love to feature real-life brides who are keeping their weddings on a budget. And we wanted to highlight some of our most-loved and popular weddings for our new readers!

Today, we're highlighting “Budget Friendly Brunch Wedding” that we published in May 2015. Kevin and Rebekah pulled off a beautiful morning affair on a budget of $7500. They kept their budget low by marrying on a Monday morning, forgoing bouquets and boutonnieres and opting for a donut cake instead of a traditional cake. Enjoy this gorgeous, budget-friendly, brunch wedding!  xoxo, Jessica

Rebekah's advice to other brides:

“Be organized, but be flexible. It was so helpful to me and others in charge to have a detailed timeline and list of what people's responsibilities were. I had copies for myself, the wedding coordinators, the wedding party, and a couple others. That way everyone knew exactly what was going on, and if they didn't – someone else did. But then there are always hiccups, and you know what? It's totally normal, and it is certainly nothing to get upset about! You know the only person who knows exactly how everything is supposed to go? You. Will your guests notice if one of your decorations isn't perfectly in place? No. Will they know if the food is 15 minutes behind schedule? No. One specific example from my day was the timing of the processional… there was a VERY particular part of the song I wanted to walk down the aisle to, but everyone else started too early. So, there ended up being an unusually long pause in the timing before I appeared at the doorway (because I waited until “my” part). It wasn't how I had planned it, but that's the way it happened – and it's a memory to be cherished along with the rest of them! So don't worry, and be at peace! It's not worth stressing over.”
