300 family members & friends came together to celebrate our marriage. We did it without a wedding planner or any other fancy things people on the internet make you feel you need. It was dainty, simple, and a freaking blast. My friend did my hair, I did my make up, and I still felt like a freaking queen. You don’t need to spend your life savings on your wedding. Find the most important things to you and buy them, but the rest? You can skip it and no one will notice. I also made it a point to buy decor that I can use in my home later. Each table has a picture of Tristan and I in a frame I plan to use in our home. Just a little tip for you, it makes spending the money a little easier when you know it’s for more than just one day. . . . . . . . We did everything online. We used @theknot for our resource list and so we could find reputable companies. 10/10 recommend
