Read on to see how much this rainbow wedding at the Smogshoppe cost. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.

Budget:
We thought we could give the top 4 expenses as these are what sticks in our heads most.
Wedding site: $9,600
But for Smogshoppe, we had to do it.  The site is simply gorgeous.
Food & Drinks: $11,500
We love to eat and so do our friends & family.
Photographer & Videographer: $6,000
We debated whether to have both and decided that in 40 years, all we would have are the pictures and videos so we indulged.
Rentals: $4,000
This was the unexpected expense as it added up quickly.

 

Their Love Story:

From Catherine:
From the very beginning, our relationship had been showered with excitement. Lorraine and I met playing basketball against each other and needless to say, the competitive sparks came first. But soon thereafter, all other sparks flew wildly. Keeping with the theme, I proposed at the end of a basketball tournament weekend in San Francisco, a city that we both adore.

 

Mini Succulent and Cactus Garden Tips:

Some suggestions on placement:
Use 1 or 2 taller plants to give the arrangement a focal point. place taller plants in back if arrangement will go against a wall/corner and in the center if it will be seen from all sides.

Don't overcrowd. Giving your plants some space will also allow for growth and good air circulation.

How to water:
After your dish garden is planted, water succulents right away with room-temperature water. Wait a few days to water cactus plants, watering lightly for the first couple times.

If you plant succulents and cacti together, keep in mind that cacti need watered less often than other succulents.
