The Wedding of my Dreams

Nothing can compare to our wedding. It was a labor of love from the start. Every bit our wedding day was careful designed by me. I put my heart and soul into. Every detail was truly all about us.
As I planned the special day, one of the things we both decided on was that we wanted this wedding to be a special piece of us, down to every detail. We wanted to put a piece of ourselves in every thing. I came up with the idea for my Bridesmaid's to carry small clutches down the isle instead of flowers, that are one expensive and two impersonal. Here's the web site with all of the clutch instructions Clutch Purse How-To

We had a pretty tight budget that we wanted to stick to, so we were forced to be creative. We asked our friends and families for ideas, referrals, ect. We were able to find a wonderful college student that was interested in photography to take the pictures, a family friend with a fancy camera did the video, another family friend made the cake, and with a referral from a friend we were able to get a wonderful deal on the food. By using unconventional means, we were able to make this day truly about us.
Decorations on a budget were a daunting task but with a little creativity and a hot glue gun, anything is possible! My Starfish Tree Center Piece was really simple, cheap, and a nood to architecture. All you need are some inexpensive starfish, tea light candels, and a hot glue gun. Start by creating a steady base with the starfish, then glue on additonal starfish until you have reached your desired size. Make sure to keep it balaced. Once you have achieved your desired size, glue on the tea lights. Tada!!! Instant center piece! You can also use it as a place to hang your seating assignments (just omit the tea lights).
