$3000 Wedding {Ali + Chris}

We’re truly in awe of today’s gorgeous DIY wedding, shared by Sarah Christine Photography.

The bride and groom, Ali and Chris, are DIY talented like we’ve never seen before. This cute-as-pie couple made their own dance floor, cooked their own food, made their own wedding invitations, made the water bottle labels, made the wedding favors, made the flags for the decorations, and even made the coat hangers for the bridesmaids dresses. There’s seriously nothing these two can’t make!

Honestly we can’t get over all the pretty details, the stunning wedding reception decor, and Ali’s stunning wedding dress that she purchased on ebay.

The total cost of this wedding for 250 guests was an unbelievable $3000 USD. With the most expensive items being the tent rental, chair hire, and the photographer. Without further ado, here are the wedding photos. Be prepared to be blown away!








Congratulations Ali and Chris and thank you Sarah Christine Photography for sharing these gorgeous wedding photos.
