Our budget was $600 for our wedding ….. everything! I catered the reception and rehearsal dinner myself and friends baked assorted yummies to add to the buffet table at the reception as gifts.
I made my dress and hat/veil for $20.00. It was the height of “Dallas” popularity and Alexis Carrington with her huge shoulder pads and straight fitting classy sassy outfits were my style.
The Veil has a hat base which I covered and beaded with little pearls, the toile was a big puff at the crown of my head and then down the back.
We were married at a beach Chapel in October and threw bird seed, which a few pieces remain in the veil today!
