Thanks for checking out my blog!
I'll try to keep it updated with all kinds of event information so that you know all the
necessary information, tips, and tricks to plan your next event.
This week I've decided to focus on decor and costs for buying versus renting.
For this post, I want to focus on a rustic themed wedding with decorated mason jars and bottles on a wood chunk with a burlap runner down the table. (I've attached idea pictures that I found on google search. *I do not own rights to those pictures, simply using them as visual aids*)
I went to hobbylobby.com and started adding items to the cart like the mason jars, the burlap with lace, bottles, etc. After I added most of the items that I know you'd need for a diy rustic wedding, I was shocked to see how much it can cost!
Cost of supplies was $1,636.69 and that was after discounts and some items on sale! (Bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages only for bride, groom, 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, and 8 parents/grandparents!)
Even if you purchased every item on sale, you'd still be looking around $980 for supplies. That means we could easily save you over $500! Our full inventory of decor rentals is only $200 which comes with everything non floral (unless in stock). We could make custom bouquets for you and your bridesmaids along with the boutonnieres for cheaper than buying pre-made.
Here is the link where I added everything to my cart. If the link does not work on your device, I took pictures of all the items that I added and the total.
We'd love to help save you money on your big day because we know there's other things you could spend the money on like the Honeymoon (where you actually get to enjoy being married).
