We cut costs wherever possible, and we had the most amazing wedding. We are a same sex couple, she wore a suit we had tailored and I bought a dress on ebay that was new in the box, and had it fit to size. We carried bouquets of daisies and had friends make centerpieces with mason jars, babies breath, eucalyptus and wildflowers. Instead of a cake, we had a pie bar, our guests brought 60 amazing home made pies! we decorated the aisle with stumps, topped with white candles, leaves and pine sprigs. A friend who DJ's on the side ran the sound and music, and the whole thing was gorgeous and incredible. Friends did our hair and makeup and my sister did THE WORST nail painting job the morning of the wedding. A sweet gesture and enjoyable time between us. The weather held and the BBQ was great.
