Stop the presses! I have a new favorite budget wedding! This one is via Real Simple Weddings, and it’s a picnic wedding. A picnic wedding just wasn’t practical for us, but I love them. The very best part of this wedding? The couple was aiming to keep the cost under $10,000 for their 100 person wedding, and (drum roll please) they came in UNDER budget!
The bride and her sister sewed these stylish picnic blankets out of calico fabric they found on sale. I also love this simple bouquet of tulips wrapped in fabric that would be super easy to make on your own.
They had their caterer pack these brown bag lunches for the guests, and put a sticker on each one with the menu. Just because they were having a picnic wedding didn’t mean they skipped dancing! The music was played on a ipod, and they had their first dance to Iron and Wine’s “Love and Some Verses.”
The bought wooden table ware on ebay, and the brides sister made the delicious looking whole-wheat cake with butttercream frosting. I love this wedding so much, I just want to eat it up!
Has anyone been to a picnic wedding? Planning a picnic wedding? I want to hear all about it!
