Happy Tuesday and a big congratulations to all the couples who got engaged over the weekend! No doubt you’ll be diving headfirst into the planning process this week by gathering inspiration online and marveling over all the pretty that DIY Bride has to offer. The Real Weddings section is a great place to start since the weddings we feature are great examples of how to make your budget stretch while infusing the spirit of you and your intended into the details of your day.
Today we have the wedding of Jarod and Nicole, who created their wedding around a beachy ocean theme. They were married in an outdoor ceremony near the water, and their inspiration was present in the starfish charms on the wedding stationery, color palette of navy and watermelon, the sand dollars and seaglass used in the decor, and the rosa rugosa seeds used as favors for the guests. Nicole DIY’d most of the elements of the day, including the florals, invites, cake topper, bedazzling her shoes, and sourced her materials for inexpensive decor from Goodwill, Michael’s Crafts, JoAnn’s and Etsy.
