The Non Wedding Planner

My daughter got married in September. It was a beautiful ceremony in Aspen. Since she and I are both designers, we decided to do a lot of the decor ourselves. She saved a lot of money as we planned and planned, shopped, painted and crafted. Since the colors are all changing in Aspen, she wanted a simple white and green theme for the ceremony. We visited Associated Wholesale Florist in Denver (very nice to work with :)) for a trial run and put the flowers together ourselves. Using some ideas from Pinterest, we made the boutonnières , the girls flowers and the table decor.  I would recommend this as we had a few trial runs before we liked what we made. Yes, it was time-consuming, however, as everyone knows, weddings are very expensive so saving money where you can become important.
We thought they turned out nice and we’re glad we did our trial run because we put them together the day before the wedding,  already having a plan helped things go much smoother.


In the spirit of saving money, I was the “wedding planner” and set up everything for her wedding day and I have to say, It was a little overwhelming but thanks to great friends and family the wedding was beautiful and fun!

Here is what I learned.

Get a wedding planner for the day of the wedding.  I really wasn’t sure what to do so I missed a few things while trying to make sure everything was running smoothly.

ALSO IMPORTANT!!  find a great photographer and videographer, this is your record of the day and you won’t get it back.  Her video turned out amazing thanks to BTX Productions.

PS. Please know we don’t give out names for bad reviews only good ones.
