Bethany & Bryan’s $2,500 Ultimate DIY Wedding

This chic outdoor wedding, sent from our friends at Sarah Christine Photography, shows how a wedding with a small budget can be beautiful in big ways. Bethany and Bryan designed their special day for just $2,500 with help from friends, family, some ingenuity, and Craigslist! The wedding was held at Hudson Gardens, the food came from Safeway, and the dress was passed down (we love that!) <!–more–>

See how this creative couple made their budget work, and get inspired!

Bethany’s dress was handed down from a cousin, keeping it special in the family, and her jewelry was vintage chic.

The couple chose a venue that was already very green and provided a great background for guests and photographs.

Their arrangements featured a few eye catching flowers and made the most of lots of green foliage.

All the flowers were provided by a local florist, Santa Fe Floweral, and cost only $150!

Minimal designs and fonts kept things classic and low cost.

The centerpieces were simple, but the use of white table cloths and chairs made things look bright and clean.

  1. Very smart planning of the wedding! Simple, nice and does not lose a single drop of the attractiveness and uniqueness. Green daisies are adorable,and the bride’s bouquet…awesome!

  2. It just goes to show you don’t have to spend a boatload of money to have a spectacular wedding. It reminds me of a friend of mine who found her stunning wedding dress for $1 at Goodwill.

  3. Really loved this wedding and all the pics. Make feel as if going green brings things back in focus for weddings and put the attention where it should be. This to me seemed just as elegant as any platnium wedding I’ve seen yet with more focus on the matter of the day and less on a cirucs to surround it. Great job!
