So, FH and I have decided to do what we’ve always wanted and elope. No fuss, no muss, just…well….us (and an officiant). Of course, I still want to have a nice looking bouquet for this event, and in all likelihood, there will be some sort of reception later in the year, which will necessitate yet another bouquet. I’m far too frugal and budget-conscious to justify purchasing two bouquets, so DIY silk flower bouquets seem like the way to go.
Picking the dress is a pretty important part of the whole wedding experience, and every bride wants the opportunity to pick the best dress at the best bridal boutique. Well, my Best Friend In The Entire World (who just got engaged!) was lucky enough to snag an appointment at Kleinfeld Bridal for her dress, and so I was lucky enough to be able to participate in the experience. I thought I’d write a quick Kleinfeld Bridal review for anyone thinking about snagging a dress there.
There are so many beautiful wedding venues in New Hampshire, from orchards and farms, to inns tucked away in the mountains, but this type of venue isn’t ideal for everyone. For those looking for something a little more offbeat, here are seven unique New Hampshire wedding venues to look at for your big day.
Wedding favors are a fun way to give your guests something that’s close to your heart, and what better gift than one inspired by the free state? New Hampshire wedding favors are perfect for weddings either held in NH, or held out of state by a NH native who wants to include a little piece of home.
These little gifts are a great way to keep the free state close on your big day.
Hiring a wedding photographer can easily set you back a few thousand dollars, but in this increasingly digital age, it’s de rigeur that each and every detail of the wedding be documented for the bride and groom to remember forever. But, what if you don’t have a few thousand extra dollars in your budget? What if your whole wedding budget actually is a few thousand dollars? Fear not, here are some excellent wedding photographer alternatives that won’t break the bank.
I think I’ve made it clear that the vision for how I look at my wedding is pretty much just “Galadriel” from LotR. Books, movies, whatever – I’m just going for “high elf wedding.” Tooooootally normal. In light of this, I’ve compiled some links to tiaras, dresses and footwear that really bring the whole Rivendell wedding theme to life.
Most people don’t think of saving money when they think of shopping at Whole Foods Market, but it’s actually a great place to go if you’re planning a smaller wedding. Here are a few ways you can actually save money on your wedding by going to Whole Foods Market.
A key aspect to setting the tone for a wedding is an exciting and cohesive wedding palette. Choosing one or two colors for your wedding is nice, but you’ll want a few accent colors to be able to choose from. These boho wedding palettes will bring some life to your stationary, linens, flowers and the decorative details for your celebration.
What’s cuter for a rustic wedding than a wildflower bouquet? DIY floral arrangements are actually pretty easy, as long as you’ve got some basic design sense, and readily available flowers.
As I mentioned in my introductory post – I have no vision for my wedding. Okay, so that’s not entirely accurate. I know I want a woodsy, rustic, Rivendell feel to the event, but that’s about it. As you can imagine, that’s not very helpful for someone who’s trying to determine what her dream wedding looks like.
So, in the interest of making planning my future wedding just a little bit easier, I thought I’d crack open Adobe Illustrator, and make some palettes out of bouquets that I really liked. Maybe this will help me decide just what look I might be going for…right?
