Today I’m going to try something new. If you guys are close to me then you’ll be very well aware that I’ll be eloping at the end of March. There were alot of reasons that Andrew and I decided to elope, but most cost was definitely a factor.
Wedding planning is so stressful. (Elopement planning too). There are so many things that are going into it logistically the last thing I wanted to think about was design. I knew I had theme and idea in mind but I couldn’t solidify it. I looked online and there weren’t very many resources that would help you through the design aspect of your nuptials. Which, I completely understand. That’s what we have designers for. But what I desired was for somebody to make the wedding designing process more straight forward with a DIY aspect.
I don’t really focus on the invitations or attire. That is truly up to you. I might list a dress that I would personally buy to match the style.
Heck, what I’m about to offer you guys, I would have PAID for! Without further ado, I have found a styled wedding shoot that I thought was pretty cute. I have gone through Amazon to find something comparable or similar so that you can have that gorgeously styled wedding. Now, buying all these items gets ridiculously pricey. BUT if you don’t mind investing in them and then selling them later then, no harm for fowl right??
On to it!

Lets first start with the ceremony location! We have some gorgeous flowers. I’m see blush and cream colored roses along with pink and white baby’s breath with a hint of cherry blossoms in between. I suggest that the main statement florals you buy from Afloral. Their prices are higher but it’s totally worth it! I use their florals all the time in my bridal editorial shoots!
