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 “Spring Wedding in Utah” that we published in October 2012. Jonathan and Ashlee hosted a gorgeous wedding for their family and friends on a budget of $5000. They kept their budget low by using a friend's backyard for their reception and serving cake and ice cream! I absolutely love their color scheme too! Enjoy this spring wedding! xoxo, Jessica

 

Creative touches Ashlee and Jonathan included in their wedding:

We added a few of our own touches to our reception. One of those things was karaoke! On one of our very first dates we sang karaoke with Jon's sister Lorissa. We got up and sang the duet “A Whole New World”. We had no idea at that point where our relationship would go. We decided that would be a perfect piece of us to share at our reception. 🙂 Another touch involved the fact that my husband Jon loves Superheroes, always has. He and his groomsmen secretly had superhero shirts on under their white shirts and at a certain point during the reception we slipped away and the men ripped open their dress shirts to display their superhero pride. This was one of our favorites!  And lastly, just before leaving, I pulled out something that my husband had been talking about since we had gotten engaged, but didn't think I would ever do: I pulled out a Spiderman pinata. Spiderman for Jon represented his childhood and to me, his Bachelorhood. On it I wrote “Jon's Bachelorhood”. He allowed me to take the first couple swings at it since I was the one responsible for it's destruction. Then he stepped up and in one swing broke it to pieces (it was filled with hugs and kisses…which is what he gave up his Bachelorhood for!) Those were our creative touches! 🙂
