Well I promised you I’d tell you all about our story of how we met and married, so here I go.
We then started planning our wedding. I didn’t want to have a big to do and I wanted to keep it casual. I wanted it at my parents house and I wanted just my immediate family and close friends. I did have three requirements though: One, that I would have a beautiful gown; Two, I LOVE flowers and I wanted to have beautiful bouquets; and Three, I wanted to hire someone to take photos so I’d always have the memories in photos for all of prosperity.
Adam had only one requirement: that we would only spend 2,000-4,000 dollars. We succeeded at frugality and brought it in around 2,000. We used all local small businesses and grabbed some great deals. We let our bridesmaids choose what color they wanted and then let them buy whatever dress they wanted in that color. Two of them already had gold dresses so they saved even more money!
I even got to wear TWO beautiful gowns since I found a shop that was donating designer gowns to charity. They had gone around and collected last season sample dresses from top designers and sold them for $50!!!! Most of them still had original price tags on them and the one I bought had been priced around $2,000. Boy did I hit the jackpot right?!! Since they were so cheap and it was for charity I went back and bought another.
Anyway, here are some photos….
