A simple Canadian wedding: Christina + Brian
We have another wedding treat for you today! We’re currently obsessing over the collage of ivories, whites, and red happening in Christina’s dress, so don’t mind us when we admit that we could have easily filled up this entire post with just images of her Wai-Ching dress (really, it’s that stunning). Plus, we love a bride that knows how to say ‘I Do’ in style, and husband & wife photography duo, AMERIS, who know how to capture it all flawlessly.
Christina + Brian started with a budget of $20k, and came in just under at $18k for 115 people. That stunner of a dress and Brian’s handsome suit sent them a little over budget (so worth it), but respectfully, they came in under on everything else! Minimal flowers, letting the beautiful outdoors of Victoria BC set the scene, and picking a venue with great decor already provided allowed them to save and use their money elsewhere.
We’d love to know if she’d consider shortening the dress to wear after the wedding! Wouldn’t you?
Christina walked down the aisle to a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” played by Smashing Pumpkins.
I saved a lot of money on decor by choosing a venue like The Fireside Grill, since it did not need to be decorated much. Choosing a restaurant that had extensive experience in weddings was super helpful. The total cost I spent for decor was approx $300. I made my own centerpieces, bought silk flowers & a hot glue gun from Michael’s, glass vases & yarn from a dollar store, and made table card holders from fallen branches from the woods. My step dad cut them for me about 1 inch thick and we used blank business cards from Staples (VERY inexpensive) for the table cards themselves.
Congrats you two lovebirds!
