DIY Wedding

Welcome to my DIY Wedding & Reception

We are having a simple Justice of the Peace ceremony & later having the Big Reception! We have changed our minds and are now going for a Western style Wedding, but I'm leaving the beach theme wedding posts on here.
All ideas are Welcomed, as I'm kind of a DIY kind of person & can't see pouring tons of money into just one day of our lives, when we have so many years ahead of us (God Willing). We are both Christian. He's Latino & I'm a lil bit of everything, mostly white. We want to cultivate both of our customs into our reception. Please feel free to browse & leave a note of advice! Thanks!

The Big Day

We all want our Wedding Day to be Extra Special, that is just a given, but how do we get there? What are the steps to achieving our Dream Wedding & being able to afford it, without debt.
1st We need to think of where we are willing to Splurge our funds & where we would like to scrimp.
2nd How do we pull this off?
3rd What can we do ourselves, our friends & family do (Do NOT include jealous people!) & our fiancee do? Who do we know that may be in a business that could help us? Networking!!!
4th Where do we start?
I've been researching for about 11 months & I have a good grasp on things. I want to Share what I've learned & want more ideas, too. We can help each other!

Places to Shop for Decorations

  These are some places that I found that have good bargains or are worth taking a look at. ShinDigz has a great variety of decorations in a wide variety (not just wedding) & you can request a catalog, too. Oriental Trading has a wedding section on their website. Really reasonable prices (great for favors)! Foreverwed.com, IceStandard.com and partycity.com are other places to take a look at. Koyalwholesale.com is one of my favorite websites for beach themes!
   Walmart does have a good selection of wedding things, too (selections vary on location, so take a peek at their website) & check the craft stores, too. I know AC Moore & Michael's have a wedding section. Don't be afraid to look around & ASK QUESTIONS! 
   You may get ideas from these websites on decor or favors for things that you could make yourself (or get help making). Just remember not to take too much on by yourself or you'll feel burnt out by the time your wedding arrives.
