Copper Point Resort, Invermere BC
What was your budget?
We had a rough budget of $10,ooo in the beginning,
Venue (ceremony, reception and supper included): $4,500
Thank you gifts(mason jar mugs): $300
Flowers (silk arrangements): $1,100
Bridal party gifts $600
Dress (gift) $2,500
How many guests did you have?
There were a total of 40 people
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
I think the unique touch to our wedding was the natural earth theme using the deer antlers as our main décor and the beautiful mountain scape as our backdrop.
What was the biggest thing you did to save money?
The best money saving trick was only inviting immediate friends and family, people we talked to on a weekly basis. Also venues give great discounts for weekday bookings. Our wedding was on a Tuesday, saving money on the venue.
What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
The best advice I could give is that your wedding is about you and your husband, a day to be shared between the two of you. It’s a day to show each other your love and share it. I did not try to impress anyone other then my husband. When this day is over a year down the line, I don’t remember the small details in the decorations or the supper but I do remember the vows we shared and how much we enjoyed the day together. Truly, don’t overthink it.
What was your biggest splurge?
Our biggest expense was our venue, however this did include access to the space 12 hours before for decorating, a buffet supper including dessert and a midnight lunch in addition to the ceremony and reception space with all the tables, chairs and linens provided.
What was your favorite detail?
I’d have to say my favorite thing about the wedding was the location. It was such a beautiful setting and a destination without the large expense of getting away. Also the reception area had a magnificent view with a balcony and large windows throughout so we could see the great mountain view.
What is the most memorable moment of your day?
Walking down the aisle and exchanging our vows was the most memorable moment, but there was not a moment we both didn’t enjoy.
