I've been asked by several lovely friends to share some of the details of my experience planning our Oct. 15 wedding in La Grange. It was worth every ounce of hard work, and the details truly made it our own unique soiree.
My lovely bridemaids wore the multi-way dress from Victoria's Secret for under $80 a piece. I'm pretty sure they loved me for that! The dresses were a bit hard to figure out, but check out these tutorials on YouTube by Michelle New York. Once we got everyone safety pinned in, they looked gorgeous and were totally danceable. They all wore their own cowgirl boots. I found the flower girl dress at Ross for $18, removed the cheesy fake flower, and trimmed it with pretty ribbon and a feather flower. My dress is a Maggie Sottero that I found at Anonymously Yours, a hole-in-the-wall consignment shop in Dallas. It was brand new (the bridal shop had gone out of business) and I paid $500 for it. Love a good bargain!! Found my flower girl's pail at a garage sale. Flowers are by me :)
The "Guestbook Table" was an antique dresser filled with linens and our programs, which I designed and printed on kraft paper cardstock and tied with antique lace. The guests signed picture books from Shutterstock with photos of our engagement.
When you're in the middle of a pasture, the dilemma of where and how the girls would arrived was solved by riding in on a biggo tractor! The girls rode in on a hayride covered in vintage quilts. The groomsmen were waiting at the end of the aisle to help them down and walk down the aisle with them.
Discount Koozies. They were less than 75 cents each and doubled as favors.
Sometime soon, I'll share the do's and don'ts of planning a ranch wedding!
