Yes, it’s true! You can create amazing wedding invitations for FREE!
After living together for more than ten years, Marcus and I just became officially engaged a few months ago. I know, it’s about time! We will be doing a simple ceremony with a small group of our family and friends in attendance. Even though we are a mature bride and groom, this is still a big day for both of us and we want to create an enjoyable experience for everyone. Now that we’ve set the date, we need to plan a wedding. When we began making our budget it became apparent that we needed to find some creative ways to save money without sacrificing what we wanted.
We both want an outdoor event but also know that we will need to have plans for those who need accommodations due to mobility or health. As you know the extreme weather that we experience here in the South makes an outdoor wedding in August unbearable for most sane people. However, a ceremony at the state park in the spring when the flowers are blooming and the temperatures are mild would not only be comfortable for everyone, it would also save us money on decorating. Mother Nature will provide most of the flowers.
We all know that no southern gathering is complete without food. And, we wouldn’t want anyone saying that we didn’t throw a proper southern party. Good thing we have some experience in this area. In addition to catering my parent’s 50th-anniversary celebration, we have catered two of our children’s weddings and many large family events over the years.
So we will be preparing the food and drinks for our big day, also. Marcus and I both love pulled pork and the fixins’ that go with it. I’m feeling a country bbq theme starting to take form. With a date, a place, and a general idea of what we want our day to be like it’s time to put it in writing. Invitations!
After food and decorations, one substantial cost is often invitations. They are more than telling your guests exactly where and when the wedding will be held.
