The Budget BUT Fashionable Bride

Obviously I have patience if I have waited over 3 1/2 months to receive my wedding pictures. The photographer Darwin M. Garza and his wonderful wife Heather did an amazing job. We also got an insanely affordable price. The photographers we originally wanted to go with wanted to change us 2 1/2 times for only one day of shooting while Darwin shot for three days. I wish I could share more of the pictures but my wedding planner may be submitting some of the pictures to some wedding websites so I can't "formally" share many of them. I did want to share some of my budget fashions. Ladies- listen up if you are getting married it is an excuse to shop. My advice to you is not to spend too much money on your wedding dress. My wedding dress is still in the garment bag and I haven't seen it since my wedding day in Cabo. I would recommend you get three dresses and lots of shoes. Below are some of my budget wedding fashions...I practice what I preach even on the most important day of my life ;-)


Trash the $65 Max & Cleo dress session!
Dress (Max & Cleo $65 on Ideeli.com) + Earrings (Stella & Dot)

Groom's Shirt $20 (BananaRepublic). Dress (Sue Wong $65 on Ebay.com) + Shoes (Michael Kors $90 Endless.com)

Sarai bridesmaid dresses  and bangles from India.

I skipped the $200 veil and opted for $10 silk orchids from Etsy.com instead
Badgley Mischa shoes from Loehmanns $90. These shoes are super comfy too.

Now the wedding + reception part well that went over budget ;-)

My bridesmaids received the Sarai and the infinity dresses as my gifts to them. They paid for tailoring the outfits to their unique style.

Tart Infinity Dresses $65 each on Ideeli.com. I love the fact they can be worn so many different ways and the material is sooooo comfortable and soft.  

Suit (Michael Kors @ Men's Warehouse) + Dress (Vera Wang White) + diamond accessories (real and my own)
