Thoughtful And Thrifty Woodland Wedding

Washigton Wedding

As a stylist and self professed perfectionist, Jenn wanted to throw a fabulous wedding that wouldn’t eat up too much of her and her fiancé’s savings. With a little determination and some thrifting, she did just that!

Their thoughtful and thrifty woodland wedding was set in the heart of Fort Townsend State Park and was captured in all its classic beauty by Meredith McKee Photography. To see more stop in and take a look around the full gallery here.

From The Bride On Thrifting For Her Wedding

Every week I visited local thrift stores to look (I liked to call it “treasure hunt”) for items that made my idea come to life. Crystal candlestick holders, wooden boxes, antique china plates, ribbon, interesting jars and glasses, etc. Even my wonderful mother sent me some candlesticks she came across while antiquing in Missouri!

I knew I wanted some sort of “place mat” or chargers for our place settings. While all the chargers I came across were not in our budget, I found wonderful gold dotted paper placemats at Carol & Comany. They turned out beautifully!

Advice from the Bride

The best, most popular advice I would suggest is to breathe and to take everything in. It goes by so fast! One thing I did however, was to get up early and sit outside by myself to reflect/pray on the day and for our future. I felt very calm and was then ready to start the day!

Words from the Vendors

From Bespoke Bride:
We designed an edible confetti bar, featuring some of the most indulgent foods in the world including chocolate, strawberries, donuts and marshmallows. It’s super yummy and super colourful and will be sure to get your guests talking! Just follow the steps below to create your own:

Step 1:
First download our ‘free Confetti Label cards’ (seen above).

Step 2:
Design your table. This had to be one of our favourite parts, we loved playing around with the different foods, colours and levels.

Step 3:
Get dipping! First choose the chocolate of your choice then dip into the sprinkles. We decorated a few first to make the table all pretty which were great for those not wanting to get their hands dirty. But leave some untouched so that your guest can get involved and have fun!

DIY your own Donut Cake Pops

How did they make those amazing and tasty looking donut cake pops?! Well here’s a hint, just click here or above to find a slider with the recipe and all of the easy steps!

Once you have those donut pops made you’ll need something to wash them down with, so why not add a drink station! Bespoke Bride chose milk but milkshakes would be just as fun. Plus, you can add a little coconut liquor for an adult only affair!
