I paid $1.19/ J&J kit at Bed Bath and Beyond... and then I saw them for $0.98 at CVS.  I think you can get them even cheaper but I was short on time.

I wore Tabernas from Watters in ivory. I absolutely loved my dress.  It was totally me... fitted, flow-y and dreamy.

On the model:

I wore two faux roses in my hair.  I got them on etsy and they looked so real! 


I asked for orange flowers and they made me the most beautiful bouquet!  It is the perfect shade.  I also wore copper colored wedges from Seychelles that gave me the 4.5 inches that I wanted and still kept me steady on the sand.




The ceremony set-up was perfect.  I chose to have the red carpet with petals (it was windy so most of it blew away) with white chairs and the white gazebo.  The gazebo was an expensive extra cost but it was totally worth it.  It just made it so much more romantic and intimate.

We had our reception in the Italian themed restaurant.  We did not reserve the entire restaurant but it didn't bother us at all since we had it mostly to ourselves.

I didn't do anything for the reception except make a few centerpieces.   My goal was to have something romantic but that was travel-friendly and cheap.  I had all these crazy ideas but went with the most simple one.  I bought copper tins, floating candles, and fake little flowers.

Img-354.jpg      Img-359.jpg<-- kind of funny.  They didn't fill it all the way with water at first because they thought the candles will go out. 


Our cake was lost in translation but ended up really good!  We asked for red velvet with white frosting.  After much discussion, they thought that white frosting was fondant (another bride apparently got upset in the past over this) but really wanted what they usually do for white frosting.  The red velvet didn't look like it but it tasted something in between a red-velvet and carrot cake.  I couldn't put my finger on it but everyone thought it was delicious.




And we gave ceramic seahorse wine corks as party favors (its in a blue organza bag and a thank you note) - in this picture it is sitting on some petals that were on the table:

My hubby wore a suit from Island Importers.  They were very good in following up with me (I measured wrong and they could tell I guess).  The jacket is a little bit long but everything fit well and looked nice.

And of course, he forgot his sandals so we paid dearly for a pair at the gift shop.



We absolutely loved loved our photos.  We used HDC Photography.  We are not good at posing and Charlie was super patient, helpful, and fun to work with.


And lastly we created a wedding newsletter, which took so much work.  I would like to keep my stuff private so I'm working on taking out my information so that I can post it.

I am totally in love with the orange flowers.  Your pics are georgeous, I wish we could see more.  I also booked HDC photography for my wedding at the recommendations of the other brides here.  Congrats on your big day!!

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
