Sorry I haven't blogged lately. I have been super busy getting ready for November's weddings.
Since today is Budget Wednesday I thought it would be a great time to talk about RecycledBride.com
They are the world's first eco-resale wedding marketplace. -You can buy wedding dresses, accessories, bridesmaids shoes, décor, anything you need for your big day. The beauty of it is it's all green! This way you not only save money but you help the environment as well and Recycled Bride donates 15% of all advertising revenue to Global Green USA. How cool is that?
Saving money on your wedding flowers
1. Don't hold your wedding during the month of February when flower prices go up because of Valentine's Day. Instead think of having your wedding during Easter or Christmas. The church will be already decorated for the holiday and you wont have to spend money on flowers for the church.
2. Consider having your wedding in a garden or park. The surroundings will already be beautiful eliminating the need for floral arrangements.
3. Ask your church or venue if they have another wedding booked for the same day as yours. You can talk to the other bride and see if you can coordinate your flowers and split the cost.
4. Consider ordering flowers from an online wholesaler and putting them together with your bridal party.
5. Use carnations for your centerpieces. When used in bulk they can be breathtaking and they are cheap.

Jessica had her heart set on an outdoor ceremony in the garden but the whole week before the wedding it rained and rained and things didn't look good. So after much praying guess what? The wedding day was sunny and beautiful and Jessica had the outdoor ceremony she so wanted.
The bride hired a Peruvian flautist to play during the ceremony which was amazing and so beautiful!
The reception was beautifully decorated in fall colors. It was full of little details that the bride and her family went to alot of trouble to create. Like this beautiful seating chart
and these lovely programs:
The cake was made by the brides mom Lucy. It was beautiful and delicious!
Especially touching was the bride's dance with her mom. You could just feel the love between them as they danced to "You Lift Me Up" by Josh Groban. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. I know I cried!
Congratulations Jessica & Lenin! So happy your day turned out to be everything you wanted and that we were able to be a part of it!
