Wedding Ideas: Ways to Plan a Wedding on a Budget

You want your wedding day to be a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, memorable event, but you don’t have an unlimited budget. Here are some wedding ideas that will help you keep costs under control. Even one or two of them could save you hundreds of dollars!

Flowers: A growing trend at larger flower stores and farmers markets is to offer DIY workshops where you can bring friends and create your own bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres or floral decorations a few days before the wedding. We’ve also heard of people offering to do it as a gift to the wedding couple.Here are some wedding ideas from @peartreegreet to help you keep costs under control #peartreegreetings #weddingideas #weddingbudget

His + Hers = Ours: 3 Wedding Ideas

Hello again. After our wedding day in September, I wanted to share with you 3 of our favorite wedding ideas we did to make our day truly memorable for us as well as our guests.

1. Photo Time! Get your guests to share the excitement by having your photographer take photos of the bride and groom with each table. Our DJ made it into a fun game that we had to get photos with all the tables within one song. It was so great to see photos from ALL the guests that attended. Tip: we printed off the photos and we included it with our thank you notes. So the guests had a copy with the bride & groom!

Ashley & Chad: A Handmade Wedding at a Historic Victorian House in Fremont, California

Pear Tree Greetings’ Happily Ever Headlines Poster Style Wedding Invitations were featured on Swooned with this beautiful vintage wedding. Read on as the couple, Ashley and Chad, share their story and wedding ideas from their big day!

Ashley Mitchell, a marketing communications professional, and Chad Rittgers, a business development consultant, met in a way that can only be described as youthfully serendipitous: While vacationing with friends one Memorial Day weekend on Paso Robles’ Lake Nacimiento, Ashley ventured off on an inner tube and happened upon Chad’s party boat. She had never imagined that she would meet the love of her life over Jell-O shots, but that’s exactly what happened. The adventurous, fun-loving pair were engaged several years later during a spontaneous road trip up the Northern California coast.

For the outdoorsy duo, an alfresco venue was a must. When they came across Fremont’s Ardenwood, a historic farm named after the forested area in England that Shakespeare mentions in As You Like It, they knew they had found the perfect spot for their nuptials. One of the property’s defining features is a Victorian mansion surrounded by elaborate gardens, and this inspired the theme of the event—“a playful garden party with a vintage vibe.”

Armed with an inspiration board from The Perfect Palette, Ashley and Chad went to work crafting their dream wedding from scratch. Almost every detail was handmade, from the ceremony arch, which Chad constructed out of tree trimmings, to the cheerful billy buttons, which were grown in Ashley’s father’s garden.

Captured flawlessly by Glass Jar Photography, their day was magical in every sense of the word.

Featuring illusion vine beading, Ashley’s stunning chiffon gown was designed by Tadashi Shoji. Her bridesmaids donned mismatched dresses in shades of pale peach.
