How To Plan An Amazing Wedding on a Budget

Hi All,

This is a post I’ve wanted to make since Scott and I got engaged but I was so busy with school, work, wedding planning, and life. Now, I have some time to sit and chat with you all for a bit — even if it is almost four years later. I figured I break everything up so it’s easier to read. In this post, we’ll discuss finding the right venue. By the way, all of the photos except for the gifs are photos from our wedding by the talented, Victoria Velastegui.

The Venue

Our theme was rustic-chic. I looked into barns, farm houses, etc. I particularly looked into thisĀ barn, and this farm house, as well as country houses within close proximity to us. The woman with whom I spoke at the Newland Barn about renting it, laughed when I asked her if there was any availability within a year of our engagement.

My best friend’s wedding is August 30 and I still have yet to get my gown. The other bridesmaids got theirs in late March. Honestly, I was going back and forth about whether I still wanted to participate because my energy levels have been nonexistent. I could tell she’d become irritated with me dragging my feet about the gown. But pregnancy changes a lot emotionally, physically, and in the hormone department.
