Well, lovebirds, we hope you are having a happy, sappy, love-filled Valentine’s day! And honestly, it doesn’t get more love-filled than today’s blog! We loved doing the florals for Ali & Dennis’s wedding day at Alden Castle. We just adored meeting Ali. We even got to take 3 generations of her family to the flower market to pick out her blooms! So when we found out Ali & Dennis had been to over 40 weddings TOGETHER, we immediately hit her up for tips on planning her own big day. Enjoy these stunning pictures from Sweet Jane Photography and then check out Ali’s wedding tips below..from inspiration to budget tips, this lovely lady is a pro at planning wedding perfection and enjoying every moment! xoxoxoxo and congrats to Ali & Dennis!

Tackle the absolute must-haves for your wedding first! Then make a list and budget for extra things that you may want and REALLY try to stay within that budget. Ask around and search websites for easy ways to save money… there are some great ideas out there! You’ll come up with ways that will best fit your wedding day. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you have family or friends that want to help out, take them up on the offer! One way that we stayed within our budget was by using the bridesmaids’ bouquets as centerpieces for some of the tables. Since we did a first look before the ceremony and took all of our pictures prior to the reception, the girls didn’t need their flowers after the ceremony.. we saved a ton of money by doing this and we were so pleased with how gorgeous the room looked! Of course Whim helped with making it so perfect for us
