Elegant DIY Wedding

I had the privilege of assisting with a DIY backyard wedding a couple of weeks ago. 
In total the decor cost less than $700.  The price does not include the table and chair rentals.

 Chair Covers gave regular folding chairs sophistication.  

We purchased them here, if you are planning an event, check them out, it's cheaper than renting.  They also have sales all the time.  I also used them for my daughter's sweet sixteen here.

The budget didn't allow for real flowers, so my niece & I created these centerpieces using faux roses from here .
They are so realistic that you really have to touch them to realize that they are faux flowers.

$700 well spent

My sister made the cake, didn't she do a great job.
