Yesterday the lovely Bianca from A little delightful shared this on her facebook page
It sent a flood of memories back to me of our wedding day over 7 years ago. I loved our wedding! Of course unfortunately friendships change and so the guest list and bridal parties would look very different today. But to be honest there's not much else it'd change.
The budget was tight as we had to payfor most of it ourselves but it was wonderful. There was alot of DIY for the invitations and reception. My dress was under $1000. Here are some pictures I thought I'd share with you. We shopped alot at Ikea and spotlight back then too.
Our reception was in a surf club. We hired tables, chairs and linen. My wonderful niece was kind enough to set all the tables up for us on the morning of the wedding. She did an amazing job. We had ikea candles, holders with rocks and floating candles from Spotlight and cute little white bowls of kool mints.
The placemats were all printed, cut and glued at home. That was a BIG job!
The cake was made by my bridemaid's sister dirt cheap.
We had a beautiful wedding book made up by a lady a found at the markets. I think the most important thing to spend your money on when you get married is on a photographer.
And can you tell we liked blue and the beach back then too - some things don't change :)
