Whimsical But Stressful

From the Bride: The one thing that was stressful for me was not hiring someone to oversee the flowers. I ordered a few select flowers from a wholesale shop but picked most of them from an orchard the day before the wedding. My cousin then arranged the flowers the day of. Although I ended up LOVING my wild flower look, it took a lot longer than I anticipated, and may have been beneficial to hire someone for this task.

The inspiration for our wedding came from a lot of different places, some of which may seem unexpected. I've never gotten into Pinterest, like a lot of friends I know. However, I follow a lot of creative people on Instagram and actually got the dream catcher idea from there.

Save Some Cash With Coupons

Most of the wedding decorations were DIY and I spent a lot of time collecting coupons and scouring for the best deals on supplies for some of the projects. A lot of craft stores have apps with coupons and you can end up saving yourself so much money if you wait for the right time to buy certain items.

Recycled Backdrops

My sister and I made the head table backdrop where we got creative with hanging painted sticks, flowers, and dream catchers. We used lace curtains from Ikea that were extremely affordable. The wood pieces used for the ceremony backdrop were actually bought from FreePeople. They sell their displays at the end of each season for a super reasonable price and the one I used was from their Spring 2014 display. They looked extremely professional and saved me and my sister a lot of time.
