Hey guys! I got married January 25th and it was amazing! I just got my pro pictures back (only 2 weeks!) I wanted to share my experience and advice for upcoming brides:
Advice:-things go wrong but in the moment it doesn’t even matter so don’t sweat the small stuff. -we did a first look and I HIGHLY recommend it!-plan to give yourself alone time with your wife/hubby before the end of the night because their is so much to talk about! -SLOW DOWN! the day goes by so fast, so everything you can to relax and enjoy every second. -discuss with your significant other prior to the day whether or not you want to do the cake smash in the face thing. I was so glad we did because our guests REALLY tried to push us to do it. Pro bam 1

Overall wedding cost was $2000 in MT:-venue was inside a local mansion in the off season so it was VERY affordable (we paid $600)-dress was a used solace London gown bought off stillwhite.com with alterations -cake & cupcakes made by local grocery store -husband rented suit from men’s warehouse -very minimal decor, tried to pick a venue that wouldn’t need a lot. -no wedding party -flowers were fake & purchased from Etsy-ceremony was mid afternoon (1pm-5pm) so we did a cake and punch reception. Food was spicy pretzels, carmel corn and cheese popcorn, chocolate covered strawberries, veggies, meat and crackers, snowflake royal icing cookies, cake/cupcakes and drinks were wine, boozy make your own hot cocoa bar and non alcoholic sparkling cider.

    First, your wedding is beautiful. Congrats on your big day. 2nd I wish brides that are stressed about their wedding budget could read this and see how cost effective yet beautiful weddings can be. I love the idea of a hot cocoa bar. I do not regret at this point us making it just us two and few friends as we are no where near breaking the bank. We are marrying on Sunday because like you we found a beautiful bed & breakfast and they have an elopement special on Sundays for $500 for 3 hours. Seeing your day makes me so excited about ours Smiley smile.
