Notes from the bride, Tess
My wedding was the epitome of a thrifty wedding. I wanted to cut costs anywhere I could but it still turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I made my bouquet out of vintage brooches found from the DI, random antique stores, Etsy and some key pieces given by my family. I made my birdcage veil, shoes and had the best time collecting old clocks, frames, books, vases, teacups etc. all from the DI and then putting those random items together to make my centerpieces. We stained doilies and music sheet paper in the tub with bags of black tea. I printed our vintage sign-in postcards with our wedding pictures (shot by the incredible Dustin Izatt Photography) and then put vintage postcard templates found from Google images on the back, easy enough 🙂 And finally, we added Polaroid pictures of us by converting normal pictures to Polaroid using a free downloadable program called Polaroid and printed them off at Wal*Mart.
Sorry for all the details, I obviously had a fantastic time making it a DIY wedding and am ready to tell anyone about it!
