Handcrafted vintage Kansas City wedding: Roni + Alex

Categories   Real Weddings

Let’s kick things off with a relaxing & charming wedding shot by Steven Michael Photography, complete with board games, rocket pops, lawn games, mustaches and one adorable vintage wedding dress. Oh, and this dress Roni scored, now sets the record for least expensive dress ever – you’ll see why. Lots of lovely inspiration to pull from this one, we promise. Especially after we tell you that the price tag for this 75 guest wedding was $6,000! That’s a number that could help you sleep at night, yes? Roni + Alex definitely know how to throw a great bash on a budget!

We know you wont believe us, but her dress cost $12 from a vintage warehouse! Twelve. Dollars. We know – we think Roni needs to win some type of reward for that too.

Roni also saved huge dollars by making all the bow ties, boutonnieres, handkerchiefs, hairpieces and jewelry.

And, these adorable bridesmaids dresses? Anthropologie, with shoes of their chosing. Flowers were bought the day before the wedding at the Kansas City Flea Market for $40. A little help from the ladies wrapping them with fabric and within minutes they had the perfect bouquets.

Roni walked down the aisle to Umbrellas by Sleeping at Last.

The favors (homemade soap) were made by Alex’s sister-in-law and we were not charged for them. This saved them big time and made for one pretty take-home gift!

Games, mason jars, and all the pretty knick knacks for tables were all bought at thrift stores. We’ve seen games starting to make an appearance in a lot of weddings lately and we must say it’s quickly becoming one of our favorite additions – super fun and perfect for outdoor weddings!

Lovely post! Quirky & charming! I was curious as to what the meal consisted of for this wonderful event? Was it just a dessert?

@Torie - We did brunch with sausage, bacon, cheese quiche, cheesy potatoes, assorted juices and cinnamon rolls. The whole meal cost around $1000.

Adorable! I love this dress--cap sleeves, gorgeous lace, and tea-length are all some of my very favorite things. The homemade touches are so sweet and heartwarming, too. This is such a feel-good wedding.

So beautiful! Steve is going to be our photographer next June! I was wondering if you have lace doilies you wanted to sell... I am trying to collect about 100 of them and live in Kansas City.
