I've got such a lovely wedding to share with you this week! This couple found a venue that was able to do just about everything – so there were few extra details to sort out. The bride created her own centerpieces and florals using silk flowers from Michael's to save money. I think it turned out just lovely and I never would know by looking at the photos that this was a ‘budget' wedding! Hope you enjoy this pink and green wedding as much as I did! xoxo Jessica

What was your wedding budget?
In total we spent around $12,000.
$1000- dress and accessories
$9000 venue (including cake and catering)
$260 stationery and postage
$115 guest and bridal party favors
$150 flowers and centerpieces
How many guests did you have?
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
Jonathan loves to off-road, so we added small trucks and buggys to our centerpieces. Also, Jonathan made the frame at the guest book table that we clothes-pinned photos of us to. My brother designed a thumbprint tree which he represented our pets in.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
To save money, we limited our guest count and nixed a videographer. We also used silk flowers arranged by me and homemade centerpieces instead of hiring a florist.
What was your biggest splurge?
What is the most memorable moment of your day?
