A tea party wedding with dinosaurs, DIY, & a gorgeous gown handmade by the bride

We knew we wanted things to be really classy and elegant, but we had a small budget. Since we couldn’t afford a lot of flowers, we bought a ton of Christmas lights on sale the year before and just went nuts with white twinkle lights and it worked out beautifully. Chris loves dinosaurs, so I snuck them in everywhere without telling him: large ones held our table numbers and small ones were just hidden in strange places, all painted gold. The biggest highlight is that I made my own gown!

But it's also one of the more expensive aspects and some of us just can't afford it (no shame in the budget game). Actually, you totally can with our amazing partner, WeddingMix.
