“The ‘Outshine the Bride’ runway show was easily the high point of the reception! We provided gag gifts (a clip-on veil and a bow tie) for the winners of the runway walk-off.”
We only had seven guests, and we only spent $500. We spent the tiniest fraction of money you can on a wedding — we did this because we live in Brooklyn (high rent!) and our parents didn’t have money to give us so we knew we just had to be creative.
Raina, who’s featured in the budget chapter of the 2nd edition of Offbeat Bride the book, rocked her autumn wedding wearing her mother’s wedding dress.
It was love made in heaven, but a marriage made in Hell. What didn’t make this happy day offbeat? The theme of the wedding was “Love Never Dies” It was full moon, which we did not plan. The location was one of the big things — we were married in front of the Cemetery of a haunted house. We chose that location not only because we both work there, but because we fell in love there and it has become a huge part of our lives.
From the bride’s green dress (that print! I swoon), to the impeccable white suits of the wedding party, to the table settings to the fabulous conjugal vehicle, I am totally smitten. I want to travel through time and space to go to this wedding.
