After months of endless to-do lists and numerous trips to Nashville, our wedding day arrived and ended in the blink of an eye. It seems unfair that such an exciting and momentous day, over which I spent hours perfecting, lasts only a few hours. Although the first half of 2015 was a blur, I would do it all again just to relive my wedding day.
Planning the entire ceremony and reception with my mom was exhausting, but oh so rewarding. Being on a strict budget meant putting together everything ourselves, with help from friends and family (WHOM I LOVE SO VERY MUCH!!! YOU ARE ANGELS.) From the programs to the whimsical pink and sparkly photo booth backdrop, this was a true DIY wedding and a labor of love.
My wonderful bridesmaids made their own bouquets, then helped me make mine. A darling family friend made the boutonnieres and all the floral centerpieces. My aunt made all the signs except the glittery “Best Day Ever” sign, which my dear friend made and the “Cheers” sign over the bar which my *now* sister-in-law made. My mom and I bought the black and white striped fabric from Hobby Lobby and used random vases and jars for the flowers.
Because our wedding began at 11:30 in the morning, we had a brunch reception with a mimosas, wine spritzers, bagel sandwiches, cheese grits and donuts. Our guests threw lavender as we left.
