My wedding


ok so I guess I'm a little behind on this but here is my diy, low budget wedding. My then boyfriend and I had been dating for over three years and he decided to pop the question Feb of this year and we got hitched in July of this year. So with little time and money this is what I came up with...

first, my dress

I used a heavily embroidered lace fabric with a ivory satin lining.
Underneath it all about 16 yards of gathered tulle.
I also made my veil and the men's boutonnieres.

the bouquet made of paper flowers (some spray painted gold)



Next, the ceremony
We didn't have a billion dollars to spend on flowers so with the help of friends we made tissue paper poofs and hung them all over our church






Our cake was at minimal cost also since it was made between my mother and I.
The morning of the wedding I was adding the final touches placing the gumpaste flowers I had made...




We couldn't afford a florist so we made our own arrangements





We also catered our own reception but that is another story...
