Holly’s Wedding On A Budget

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

I was inspired by a series Rachel at Holy Craft did earlier this year in which she planned a Pinterest Wedding Do-Over – she detailed all the things she would include in her wedding if she was to do it over again. I’ll be sharing my own Pinterest Wedding Do-Over later in the month, but I’m also going to be sharing some posts from my blog friends this month all about their weddings and the unique things they did to make their weddings special!
Today’s post comes from Holly at Back Home Again. Read on to see how she created a beautiful fall inspired wedding on a budget.

Hi! I’m Holly and I blog over at Back Home Again, mainly about my family’s adventures and our attempts to live a more sustainable life. When Dara told me she was going to do a wedding series in honor of her anniversary, I was so excited because I love wedding planning and would love to open my own wedding planning business one day.
When my husband and I got married, I knew that I wanted a beautiful fall wedding with an elegant harvest theme. The only problem? We were on a budget. So, we did everything we could ourselves.
We made our centerpieces, pew bows, invitations and programs. All of this was super easy, even I, who am not crafty by any means could handle it!

I purchased some tulle, ribbon and silk roses and hot glued them together to make our bows. We weren't allowed to attach anything to the pews, which is why we had to tie them.
Our centerpieces were made with bronze planters and tea light holders I picked up at Michael’s. I bought mums from a local greenhouse and planted them. They were a special gift for one person at each table that had a specially marked favor.
For our invitations and programs, we bought a DIY kit and just printed them ourselves.
All of this saved us so much money. Our wedding was still a pretty penny and I don’t even want to know how much it would’ve been if we had paid someone to do all of this for us!
