Hi everyone! I'm back!
I'm really excited to share my blog post with you for Wedding Wednesday and it was kind of Miss Tweedle to extend the invite. Thanks to Miss Tweedle, I'm now an avid blog reader; who knew following could be so much fun!
My husband and I were married in the fall of 2008. The Columbia Valley is GORGEOUS in the fall and we really relied on Mother Nature to help guide us in the right direction with regards to colors and theme for our wedding; we ended up choosing hues of brown and orange for just about everything. We were married outdoors but our reception was in a tent and I really wanted to make it feel like the inside of the tent was just an extension of the outdoors.
In the picture above, you can also see one of our take away gifts; pickled asparagus. Even though it wasn't planned, the gifts looked like they were also part of the decor.
I was very pleased with the way that our reception ended up looking. But, what was even more amazing than the way it looked was the way it felt during dinner once the sun had set and we could really enjoy the warm ambiance that the candles, flowers, dinner, and company had created.
TweedleBud Tip: The simple task of gluing the two different colors of paper together for the placecards helped save money in the budget. Whenever you can, if you have the time, put your own energy into some of the 'kitchy' tasks, it'll save you money in the long run rather than paying someone else to do it!
