PARTY DETAILS, as told by Erin

Our theme was spring, romantic, light and airy. We were very limited in budget but since most of our 10 year courtship was long distance (Including our engagement period) I had ALOT of free time haha to make stuff such as decor (church decorations, silk flowers, mason jars), mad libs and reception decor (lemonade stand, signs, photos, etc). I know I felt bad when I’d sometimes see the weddings posted on blogs that were so fancy and over the top when mine was so modest based on finances so I thought it would be fun for other brides to see it’s possible! Even if you’re not insanely crafty!

Wedding decor is looking really classy. I can’t believe it that this wedding was decorated in limited budget. I really liked the wedding card and table decoration, totally colorful.
