Details: Wedding Week

Wedding Week is coming to an end.  It was so much fun sharing our special day with you.  Today I am linking up with Amy over at Fresh and Fancy!

Would you believe it if I told you my dress cost $400?  Yep!  Fully beaded in Swarovski crystals.
Every Sexton woman has worn this broach on her wedding day.

I loved that both of our rings are family heirlooms.  M's ring is made from one of his fathers rings.  My engagement ring is with the center stone his father proposed to his mother with.  

Our Cupcake Cake!  The most delicious things ever.  They were the hit of our wedding.   

I loved my bouquet 

I was OBSESSED with the bridesmaids bouquets.  I thought they were beautiful  

I loved the tulips and curly willows as center pieces at the reception.

We had a very limited budget compared to the national average.  You can have the wedding of your dreams within your budget.  M and I are blessed that our parents both contributed to our wedding fund.  When I was in college I worked for one of the top wedding planners in Atlanta as her assistant for 4 years.  The Four Seasons and Ritz became my home on Fridays & Saturdays.  Each wedding felt very cookie-cutter.  When planning your wedding remember: 

There are no rules, create your own traditions!
If you don't want to do something don't do it.  At the end of the day the only thing that matters is you and your partner are happy.  Don't let anyone tell you any differently!
