I wanted our wedding to be as personalized as possible. But of course without the hefty price tag. I wanted to focus the theme around us and our personalities. So when it came to deciding what our “wedding colors” would be we simply went with his favorite color and mine…. pink and blue!
Then I searched all the popular sites to get ideas on props, favors and décor. I fell in love with etsy.com. Not only was it a great site but it was mostly handmade products. I found an adorable sign to direct our guests for the ceremony for $89.00 (this included the shipping cost).
I also found my gift card box on ETSY for $70.00 ($50.00 plus $20.00 for shipping). This might seem like a lot for a box but it was so adorable and well worth it. I figured since I had to cut a lot of the big ticket items out of my budget, I could add a little extra drama to the little things.
I then found very reasonably priced items on The Knot’s wedding shop. I ordered personalized cocktail napkins and matches. This too was a nice little detail that added a lot to our décor.
I had a “travel” theme wedding which I will touch more on in another post but I had found a 3 ft wire Eiffel tower for the escort card table on eBay. I think the shipping cost more than the actual tower.
