A wedding on a real budget

A glimpse into my wedding…….

you know how people say you won’t remember anything about your wedding.  A day you spend thousands of dollars on for your family and friends to eat, drink, and party. I mean how do you forget something like that.

Let just say that I only wish that it was true I remember everything good and bad. Yes! bad there are some very upsetting things of family that always seems to make it’s way to your special occasion. Well I put all the crazy behind me and just had fun????

You know no one never tells you how difficult it is to plan a wedding on a budget. A real budget I did not just plan my own wedding did all the designs and decorating but I did it all for less then $10,000.00. WTF! I can’t even believe myself but I really did it. The worst but most rewarding thing I have done. I have planned and worked on other weddings and events but to do it all for your own wedding can turn into a bad idea really fast. So happy to be good at what I do CREATE.

Where I saved:

My husband is a graphic web designer so we bartered his service for our Photography.( big Save) 0.00

We did our own flowers and decoration (I got a really good deal on my flowers due to the company making an mistake on my order.) 300.00

Did not rent a limo  or party bus, ( but we did rent an SUV from car rental shop) 200.00

DJand Video 600.00

Did not get a full bar but had beer, wine, one dark and white liquor ( biggest expense was bar and food) 7,000

Design and did all print work (biggest save) 150.00

Cake 70.00

Favors 100.00

total cost 8,420

What you can get for less then 10,000.00

I will never forget luv my baby

xoxo Love Orange
