The biggest cost cutter for this wedding was opting out of providing dinner. A great option instead is to get discount codes for neighboring restaurants. Between the ceremony and the reception, let your guests go to their restaurant of choice. Provide a list of delicious spots nearby for them to choose from.

The ceremony was held at the newly redone Confluence Park. For $250 you get a public parks permit and access to the space for the day.

The cake, accompanied by tiny cupcakes, is from Little Bites Bakery and costs $300.

Flowers from Rooted Floral + Design included a beautiful bouquet for $120 (which was reused for the cake and centerpieces at the reception) and a bundle of eucolyptus for DIY decorations for $50.

The weather was cold and windy so the bride grabbed a cute fuzzy coat from her closet and ditched the heels for boots to keep her feet warm. The dress is from A&Be Bridal Shop in the Highlands and is a two piece set that can be worn again.

The invites were hand written by Oak + Pen. Each invite cost around $2.25.

The reception was at Galvanize Platte a short walk from Confluence Park. For the space, the couple paid $3000. The space came with a built in speaker and dance floor, use Spotify to save money on a DJ. A crowdsourced playlist and a friend in charge, the dancing won’t stop.
