Like I have said a hundred times, I dream of a picture perfect Pinterest wedding, but that can’t always be the case when you are on a budget. So, for me it’s all about the details.
Planning has been wonderfully peaceful surprisingly and I feel like I have accomplished a lot. I guess all that is left are the small things.
Etsy has been a life saver when it comes to rustic and unique things. Honestly you can find just about anything on there.
When looking on Etsy, I really wanted a unique ring box that would represent our wedding theme, so all I did was look up “rustic ring box” and this is what I found. I loved the way this ring box looked and knew we had to have it. The detailing is amazing and totally customizable. I put and “M” for Michael and “C” for Camille and our wedding date 9.23.17.
I ordered it on the 17th and received it on the 4th so it came at a reasonable time and is exactly what I wanted.
The second thing I ordered on Esty was a Garter. That was something I wanted to get out of the way because I know that would be one thing that I would completely forget about. So again, I just looked up “Rustic Garter” on Etsy, and this is what I found.
This garter was affordable and beautifully made. The designer made ordering super simple, all you had to do was measure your thigh and it came within a week from ordering. I think this garter fits our theme perfectly and I am happy that it came with a garter to toss rather than having to purchase two.
The next thing on my list of things to get, was a cake topper. I wanted something simple. I was thinking something with “Mr & Mrs” on it would be cute but I thought I’d take a little look on the internet and see what I found first. When searching, I came across this super adorable website called Notonthehighstreet.com. They had all sorts of cake toppers, from simple to extravagant and things that you could customize including color and writing.
Out of all the options, I chose to go with something simple that would fit our theme plus I wanted to show off my new last name. The cake topper took about two weeks to arrive and is just as described on the website. I love it!
Since my bridal shower is right around the corner I started looking for white dresses. Dresses that not everyone has, so I started looking at boutique websites. I came across a few and I decided on one that was bit more showy than I would normally wear, but I want to look older and pretty and I think it matches my theme in some way. I got this dress at Saboskirt.com it came in a normal amount of time and is better quality than I expected. To add more feminism I paired this dress with a pink floral head band that I purchased at Forever 21.
Now that the big things are done, I’m still finishing up with the small things.
It’s all about the details ladies!
Happy Wedding Planning!!
