With a budget under 12K the benefit of keeping things in the family are huge! To see the full budget breakdown keep reading and visit the full gallery here to see all of the DIY details captured by Josh McCullock Photography.

From the Bride

My sister did all our programs and invites. She did AMAZING! We tried to make our wedding as personalized as we could that reflected who we are as a couple. It was a lot of tough work but so worth it.

A DIY wedding can be time consuming and hard because you have to think of every detail but then again….that’s the best part! Everything has your personal touch and style on it and that’s what will make your wedding unique and stand out. And don’t be afraid to ask your bridesmaids for help. We had several wine and craft nights together trying to get things done.

Don’t be afraid to splurge on a good photographer. We splurged on ours and it was well worth it. After the wedding is over and years down the road, you will always have those photos that captured your favorite moments of the most important day of your life.

I had my grandmothers, sisters, and my mom make different pies and cupcakes for our grab and go table for those who wanted a quick dessert. My husband also roasted his own coffee beans to give all our guest as party favors

About the Dress

From the Bride: I had to find something off the rack especially with only 4 months to plan. I got my dress at a great consignment shop in LA called Glamour Closet where I got a beautiful polka dot silk chiffon dress by Melissa Sweet. This is a great way to get designer dress for half the price that’s never been worn. It had to be altered but one great tip for new brides is to ask if your seamstress can make your veil. It’s usually cheaper and you can come up with something custom like I did.

About the Event Designer

I found Natalie Good with A Good Affair through a friend who used her for her beautiful wedding planning skills and she found me great deals. She said planning a wedding in 4 months was possible so we tackled it together. She was able to get me a dream venue at the St. Regis Monarch Beach for practically half the price because it was off-season and short booking. We then came up with the theme of Vintage Moroccan Wedding and we were able to put it all together with some great vendors such as Darla Marie Designs, Found Rentals, and Simply Sweet Cakery.

About the Photographer

I had loved Derrek Sullivan with Flora + Fauna since seeing his pictures of my friend’s wedding as a second shooter. I had no clue he was based out of Florida and thought it would be to expensive to have him fly to California to shoot my wedding. But like I said, it doesn’t hurt to ask. He was willing to fly out and he even quoted me a reasonable price. The images are beautiful and I’m so thankful I inquired about him coming.

Florals played a major role in this one as we featured of all our favorite Summer blooms. The custom white table was the perfect backdrop for our eclectic tablescape the featured a variety of colors, patterns, and textures. The absolute star of this show as the bright pink, all floral cap that our stunning model wore with perfection. It was the perfect accessory to the hi-lo Mori Lee gown that gives bridal fashion a fun Summer twist
