Ashley + Mike Musical Virginia Wedding with DIY Details

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

Our save the dates were magnets made to look like concert tickets! I DIY’ed our invitations to look like CD albums. The invitations were cut out like records. On the front of the album was our engagement photo, where we had dressed up to look like a fake edgy rock band.

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

All of the decor was DIY’ed by me! I love thrifting, and so I thrifted almost all of the decor. Our color scheme was rainbow jewel tones. I found a lot of vases and glassware to go along with that.

Our biggest steal were definitely our flowers! I had intended on DIY’ing all of my own flowers by using sola wood flowers.

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

We spent the majority of our money on our venue and catering. Our venue came with a caterer, so we didn’t have to worry about hiring out.

What was your biggest splurge?
