Read on to see how much this rustic chic wedding at Pickering Barn 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.
We saved A LOT of money by getting friends and family help with our DIY wedding...which made it even more special and also cost-effective! My sister's friend from college, Catalina did our photography for next too nothing because we were her first wedding and she wanted portfolio work. A HUGE blessing to us as she is an INCREDIBLE photographer and I'm sure will make a good living off it in the future. My talented cousin, Julie Bilbro who was the pastry chef at a french bakery for many years, did the cakes...excellent and very cheap. Also my cousin who plays in a string quartet did the music with his group for a very reason able cost for us.
I designed the save the dates and invitations online at minted.com which saved money and I also was able to find my Pronovias $1700 bridal gown at a sample sale at a bridal boutique. After alterations it ended up being just $800! Finally, last but not least, some of my mom's friends who do event planning and decorating took over decorating our reception and ceremony...they truly worked their magic by using their own things and borrowing props from friends for our vintage look and stayed within budget too on the few items they had to purchase.
We worked hard to stay in budget but also were very blessed with some great people helping us out.
