{Real Party} My Wedding

My Wedding - A Well Crafted Party

I could have sworn that I had posted my wedding on here before…but, searching through my posts I couldn’t find anything about it. My hubby and I are coming up on our six-year anniversary. 
That of course has got me thinking about our big day. 
I loved our wedding. We worked really hard on making it special (and affordable). We tried to pay for most of the event ourselves, but we were very thankful to have help from friends and family. It was an ideal start for a young couple and it has only got better each and every day that we’ve been married. 
 We put our wedding together before the invention of Pinterest and the many wedding blogs out there. Part of me looks forward to one of our bigger anniversary dates so I can throw a huge anniversary party utilizing all of those new tools. 
Here are some of my favorite details of the wedding:
I married the man of my dreams and my best friend. I’m pretty much the luckiest chic on the planet.

My mom handmade all of the dresses for the wedding party

My aunt made my wedding bouquet and added in a handkerchief and cameo from my great-grandmother

We scraped together enough money to pay for a wonderful Jazz band—I wish that I could pay them three times what we did. They were absolutely amazing.

My family made tasty desserts for our dessert and coffee reception

My little sister was my maid of honor—Isn’t she lovely?

Our wedding party was slightly LARGE—It was nice being surrounded by friends and family

The Mother-of-the-Bride and the Mother-of-the-Groom accidentally got the same dresses… but, they looked gorgeous!

Tomorrow I’ll have a post about the DIY elements of the wedding. Thanks for letting me share!

    Wow, thanks for sharing pictures of your wedding. It made me laugh that your moms got the same dress! My mom and Nate’s mom accidently got the same dress (in different colors) too! 🙂

      Haha- glad it happens to others too then. My mother-in-law bought two dresses to be safe. But, they both just look so pretty in the pink!

    Wow, your mom handmade all of those dresses? My mom would have had a heart attack before finishing! But, wedding planning really stresses her out!

      My mom nearly DID have a heart attack before finishing… I of course picked a really slippery fabric, so she had to also pin and cut tissue paper. She was not too happy with me. 😉
