There are many ways to save on Venue's, but still have an elegant wedding. It can be so tempting to spend a large portion of your budget on the location! This is where the photo's, memories, and celebration will take place. It makes sense for it to be a good portion of your budget, but you don't have to let it brake your bank. My biggest suggestion: THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!

Since I was not in town, I had to trust the eye of others in making my venue choice. This can stress a bride since it's harder to visualize in pictures and you'r idea's may be different then others. Looking at budget first, then number of guests, then preferred decor, availability, and allowance of children whittled down my choices quickly. That the West Coast wedding was in the winter with a very close ceremony date to the rental made for a smaller list as well. Here were the final 3 venue choices!

As a bride we want to look good, but not all of us have the cash. So, since I plan on ponying up the cash to have my hair professionally done, I won't have the cash for any hair accessories. This is when I bust out my inner savvy bride and figure out how to make something. First mission, find supplies!

I love the brooch bouquet's with fabric flower look, but I couldn't afford it on my budget! What is a bride to do? Well, this bride stayed up for months and made it herself. Along with the flowers for the bridesmaid bouquets and the table settings! A lot of pin pricks later and I think I came up with something beautiful! Check out the final products!
