When it comes to weddings, talking about budget can be deflating, right? After all, with inspiration from Pinterest and celebrity weddings, it’s easy to dream. Yet adhering to a budget can make grand ideas seem out of reach. Well, take a peek at this event, and you will see that having a wedding on a budget is totally doable!

Beautiful Wedding on a Budget by Adam Barnes | Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Anita - I like that you put everything together in a links so that it’s easy to find all the contacts. Wedding is an expensive event but such a beautiful moment so it needs special attention to the details.

  • LaiAriel Samangka - Prioritizing what is important and setting aside and be strict with the budget would be possible if you really want to stay on a budget for a wedding just like this one. It is about knowing your priority by levelling them. Your photos are really stunning!

  • Valdas - A beautiful article, with really beautiful photos, is a great place for weddings.

  • Jenna mcFarland - So many great tips! We planned our wedding on a budget – but I think it was a lot easier than now-a-days since Pinterest didn’t exist when we planned ours πŸ˜‰

  • Kasia - Looks like this couple had a wonderful wedding. It’s good to know you can still have a beautiful wedding even on a budget. Gorgeous venue.

  • Seanna - This was beautiful! And they got a really good deal since they had to watch their budget! I’m excited for the day I’ll get married πŸ™‚

  • Stephanie - I love your pictures! They’re gorgeous. As I was reading, I was wondering who your photographer was and it was so convenient that you had a list of vendors. Great post! πŸ™‚

  • kumamonjeng - This is a great example to teach couple to planned their weddding on a budget and prioritized what is important, then work down the list. I too think photography is on top of my list as it will capture the precious moment forever.

  • Edwin Prasetio - Really awesome. Despite the budget, the wedding still looks luxurious and classy. A blessing for the happy bride and groom..

  • Czjai Reyes-Ocampo - Awww, such a lovely wedding this is! I love her nude cake, too – simple but elegant. πŸ™‚

  • Pat - In this day of skyrocketing expenses that are incurred planning for a wedding, it’s good to know that a beautiful wedding can be planned within a budget.

  • Masha - I wish you were around when I was planning my wedding!

  • Noelle Lynne - Stunning! Love the location and the how simple and elegant it all is.

If there’s one location around the world that is guaranteed to be beautiful for a wedding, it’s a vineyard. With trailing vines, barns and stunning views, they lend themselves easily to a gorgeous event as you will see in this lovely summer winery wedding today!

  • Gladys Parker - OMGoodness, everything about this wedding was beautiful from the bride and groom to the wedding gown, flowers, decor just everything single thing. These are the most beautiful pictures they almost make me want to oops never mind. The winery was eloquent and decorated up to par with the wedding.

  • Lara | Grits in the City - From the vines to the barns, what a beautiful setting for a wedding! We wanted to do ours at a winery but weren’t able to make it work.

  • Dia Darling - I love the back of her dress! I feel like when i find the one it will probably be a winery wedding. I’m in San Antonio and we have so many nearby.

  • kumamonjeng - I do agree having wedding in vineyard is pretty as the trailing vines and barns make a great backdrop for the couples. We don’t have any vineyard in Singapore so the more we treasure such places.

  • Elizabeth O - Wow what a beautiful wedding this looks to be. It really looks like the perfect location and the bride and groom look really happy indeed.

Have you ever thought about registering for your honeymoon? It’s a great idea! From the practical to the posh, here are reasons why a honeymoon registry is absolutely the best idea ever.

This post is done in partnership with Honeyfund, a fabulous honeymoon registry. All opinions are my own, and if you choose to register via one of the links in the post below, I earn a small commission, which in no way changes your registry.Β 

Honeyfund Honeymoon Registry | Hill City Bride Wedding Blog


  • Seanna - I like this idea! Today it seems like couples are already living together and accumulating homewares before they’re even married, so it doesn’t make sense to gift them with more stuff!

    A honeymoon is a great experience, and awesome memories won’t clutter up your house.

  • Joniamac - This is a genius idea! I agree, most couples already have everything they need, so why add more. Thanks for sharing this post! I’ll try to share this with couples who get married at the venue I work at and my friends that work in events!

  • Annie - I love the idea of a honeymoon registery. But honestly I think I’d just want a ton of money for my honeymoon, not any gifts. It’s a really good idea though.

  • Dee - I wish someone had told me about this 16 years ago when I was getting married. Me and my husband would love it. We love traveling together and if someone would give us gift like that we would be over the moon

  • Monidipa Dutta - I love this idea of honeymoon registry but on the other hand being a workaholic I don’t think I could enjoy without thinking about work.

  • Iya - Louisa - I am not even getting married but I cant wait to check this out haha! This is such a good idea as so many times you end up with gifts you really don’t want etc..

  • Luci - I’ve never heard about this but that would be a really nice way to pay for a honeymoon.

  • CJ - My wife and I did a honeymoon registry. It was great! We got a free limo ride from the airport to our resort and a free whale and dolphin watching boat trip.

  • Elizabeth O - I love the idea of a honeymoon registry. It is a really handy and great idea for people to contribute to something special like this.

  • Jennifer - That all sounds fabulous! And smart, too. πŸ™‚

  • Corina - I already have too much stuff lying around my home and I hate it when I get gifts I didn’t actually need and won’t use, but I won’t throw them away as they are gifts so I’ll just have to dust them off regularly. Indeed, a honeymoon registry is the best idea to avoid suprerluous things πŸ™‚

  • Talya - I think this is such a great idea -a friend of mine did this a few years back and I thought it was genius. It feels more meaningful than a usual wedding gift list.

  • Eboni Dixon - I would definitely consider a honeymoon registry if and when I get married. I have always been an “experience/holiday over material things” kind of person so this would perfectly represent me!

  • Patrice Boothe - I think this is such a good idea, because at least people know where you are spending it! And it is going to something worth and special instead of gift you may never use.

  • Adriana - I think this is such a great idea. Rather than people purchasing items you might need, they can put their money towards something more useful

  • Jo - This is a splendid idea! Never heard of this but sounds like something I would do for my wedding for sure!!!

  • Laura Dove - Oh I would have loved to do this but my husband wanted a UK based wedding. Maybe if we renew our vows we could do it abroad!

  • Monique Elise - I never even knew this was a thing until my friend had this type of registry for her wedding last year. I think it’s a GREAT idea!! Super smart and cost-effective rather than have guests waste money on household items you’ll rarely ever use.

  • Farya - Yup a registry is far more better and financially beneficial than gifts.

  • Wendy - Never thought this exists, but this gives me an idea. I might consider this — by the time I get married. lol

  • Alison Rost - I agree with this completely. It’s really nice to have a registry for your honeymoon so you don’t have to worry much about it and have more budget for your pocket money.

  • Renata - www.byemyself.com - Yes, it might be a bit less romantic than traditional gifts, but it is certainly a practical one – for both sides.

  • Ivan - I was gifted with plane tickets for my honeymoon and it was my most favorite gift. Honeymooning can be expensive so it’s nice to get all the help/sponsorship you can get.

  • Mommy Sigrid - Honestly, this is the first time I have heard of the honeymoon registry. It wasn’t in when we got married. Hubby and I also had a honeymoon but it was nothing really grand. Now, I wanna travel with him because the kids are already older.

  • eliza - I must say that this is truly a great idea. And I always opt for being practical and minimalist. I don’t see anything wrong with that especially nowadays.

  • David Allen Elliott - I had a wedding registry but I never had a honeymoon one. But I can see why it would be a great idea. If we had one I think we would have been able to plan better and do more. We would have known what we were getting better and it would have helped with the planning. This is awesome.

  • Mayuri Saxena - Ohh! I didn’t have a wedding registry. It sounds like a great idea, I am going to forward this to my cousin who is getting married in December!

  • Sayanti - Honeymoon registry is a great idea and indeed a money saver. Besides, it is of no use giving the couple things that they already own.

  • Blair Villanueva - I like the idea of having a service registry coz it saves time, effort and money in choosing the gives. Also, this will avoid gifts that will be recycled by the couple coz they don’t like it. Whoever discovered this technique is a genius!

These adorable vases are based on this DIY project I did earlier on clay name tags, but I just wanted to share how else I used these personalized tags. Take a peek at this super easy way to make vintage bottle vases for gifts or wedding favors. So cute!

Moms are there for us for so many phases of our life! We honor them on Mother’s Day, they are there as we plan our weddings and have children. They deserve love and honor. Even if mom isn’t present, we tend to gravitate towards someone who can mentor and guide us along the way. The big day is coming up, and here are some fabulous – and modern – gifts for mom that are under $35. Budget friendly, useful and beautiful, too!

  • Marielle Altenor - I love everything on this list!! Especially the Personalized Ring Dish. Super cute gift idea for moms!

  • Megan - Oh my god I want these all for myself! What gorgeous gifts, every single one of them πŸ™‚

  • Jen - I love the canvas bag. It’s so simple but I’m sure my mom would freak out if I give her the necklaces. They look so fashionable and elegant.

  • Seanna - All of these are beautiful, but my favourite has to be the earrings you show us early on in the post. So pretty!

I don’t know about you, but if I can save money and/or have items that serve a dual purpose, I’m there! Especially when it comes to weddings. After all, it’s one day, and it’s great to have elements that you can utilize in your home later on. Well, why not show your love for a city or state at your wedding and then hang the art in your new home. What a fab idea! Check out 5 of my favorite wall art maps.

Wall Art Maps with Minted Gallery Walls | Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Seanna - These are lovely! I’m right with ya when it comes to choosing things that can be reused. And who wouldn’t want a happy reminder of their wedding day in their home?

  • Taylor O'Halloran | Not Quite an Adult - These are GORGEOUS. I love the idea of having a gorgeous map on the wall!

  • Preet - Oh wow, I love this. This would be really perfect at home. I have to look into this.

  • Geraline Batarra - Those are beautiful artwork but my most favorite design was the first picture it looks so fresh and I like those colors.

  • Arunas - Interesting idea! I love hand drawn art! Those maps look really nice.

  • Gladys parker - How beautiful those are! I would love a state of New York Map in the foil. I’d hand it with pride. These would make great gifts as well.

  • Elizabeth O - Oh I absolutely love these. How very creative and unique. They would make a gorgeous gift!

  • Explore The 6 - Creative and unique, these are beautiful. Loving the maps.

  • Alison Rost - There’s nothing like wall art to add more color to your home. I think these are all so beautiful. I love that they’re shaped like maps!

  • Shoma - These are such ideas. Will definitely be putting them to use around my house!

  • Meghan Karaan - These are so very cute and could add so much to your home! I am definitely going to be thinking about incorporating one my decor.

Ok, if you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m SUPER bad with plants. Lol! Air plants and trusty houseplants (up high so my cats can’t eat them) have become my staples. I tried a cat proof way to house my plants – an adorable air plant terrarium. You can make one, too, in a few simple steps!

DIY Air Plant Terrarium| Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Kristy Bullard - This is so beautiful! I don’t have much of a green thumb but I might could handle this project!

  • Pat - I really like your idea of planting houseplants in a bottle with the pebbles you made.

  • Jo - Love this DIY project. Definitely something I can see myself doing to spruce up my home. Especially with the weather getting nice, it would add a nice touch to my living room. Thanks for sharing!

  • Taylor O'Halloran @ Not Quite an Adult - Oh wow! This turned out so gorgeous. I can’t really be trusted with plants so this is something I should try as a begginner haha.

  • Cia Black - I think this is super adorable, and would work great as a mini fairy garden, which my girls love doing. We make a new one every summer, But I like this alternative we could keep in indoors all year round.

  • Stephanie - Those look great! They make for beautiful home dΓ©cor pieces!

  • Gladys parker - This DIY air plant terrarium looks so fun! I have never had a green thumb. Even my cacti and jade plants died. This is something my older grandchildren and I could do together, perfect.

  • Czjai Reyes-Ocampo - At first, I thought those round things were eggs, haha! Turns out they’re terra cotta clay. πŸ™‚ Love your terrarium, by the way. πŸ™‚

  • Clarice Lao | Camping for Women - I love this! Beautiful piece. I have always wanted to create my own terrarium. Thank you for the inspiration.

  • Elizabeth O - Oh I so want to try this out for myself, it looks really lovely! Such a creative idea, it would make a lovely centre-piece too

The Caribbean is such a lovely place – I hope you get to go someday! A little bit ago I had the opportunity to explore the French Caribbean islands via a Windstar Cruises adventure. It was nothing short of amazing! Read all about the cruise itself here. It was a relaxing, luxurious trip over 11 days to 8 different islands, which would make a perfect honeymoon or getaway. Beautiful views and stunning landscapes enhanced my personal experience on the 3 French Caribbean islands we visited. Feel free to take the journey along with me!

Although this post is sponsored in partnership withΒ Windstar Cruises, all opinions and views are my own . I took my first cruise on the Mediterranean Sea with Windstar 8 years ago, and I had an equally fabulous time on my second journey and truly love this cruise line.

French Caribbean Islands Windstar Cruises | Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Dalene Ekirapa - The Caribbean is very beautiful and full of beach vines! Stuff like that is just what I love. But I think I’d love your day 10 more; that beach is even more beautiful. You must be so happy to have had the experience of a luxurious trip on 11 days on 8 different islands, right?

  • Jennifer - It was such a wonderful time. I do have to say that it was SO hard to come home, though. πŸ™‚

  • Shalee - Wow wow wow! The water, the view, just everything! What an amazing opportunity to visit these islands. I hope you enjoyed every second of your time there and thank-you so much for sharing with us!

  • ELaine - I have actually wondered but never had the time to look up the french carribian islands. Wow, I felt like I am right there with you. It is so beautiful and serene. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Niki - You took some great pictures honey!

  • Kate Werthmann - The cemeteries on the islands are simply amazing! There’s a historic one in Old San Juan that is only accessible from the prominent families over the last thousand years. You can go there and walk around if you want but it’s at the bottom of a fort and the only people who can be buried there are either the family members of the prominent families that were originally buried there or Puerto Rican celebrities of any sort like actors or musicians are artists. Isn’t that wild??

  • Laura Dove - Oh wow the Caribbean is somewhere I have wanted to go for a long time now! All of these places look amazing, I need a holiday!

  • Amalia Silva - This cruise seems like a dream to me, loving your photos make me feel like I’m there too! Also the colour of the water looks incredible!

  • Jennifer - That is so interesting! We were just in Old San Juan and stumbled upon the cemetery you’re referring to. It was so lovely! And I didn’t know the history. Very interesting! πŸ™‚

  • Alison Rost - Imagine coming away to these lovely islands during your honeymoon. I think it’s the best choice to be honest. They’re all a must see and totally worth it!

  • Jhilmil Bhansali - All these islands are more than stunning. I so much need a break far away from this digital world into the lap of nature, like these islands. Indeed bookmarked to plan a travel soon. πŸ™‚

  • Dogvills - These islands in the Carribean are so beautiful! It would be an experience to treasure to go island hopping there! Wish I could have a vacation there at least once in my lifetime!

  • ANITA ZYCH - This looks like a dream trip and I am a dreamer! This part of the world is still unknown for me, but looking forward to discover it. Those islands look like a paradise!

  • Vivian - Wow, sounds like you had a jam packed itinerary! Fabulous photos too, I’m definitely putting the French Caribbean islands on my travel bucket list!

  • Masha - Oh visiting Caribbean islands is on my bucket list, pretty much near the top of the list! This looks like an absolutely perfect vacation!!!The photos you shared are all so lovely (and only make me want to go even more!) I also loved reading your great post!

  • fashionandstylepolice - I would love to explore these islands. That would be a great adventure. Definitely on my travel bucket list now.

  • MELANIE EDJOURIAN - Wow looks like you did quite a bit. I would love to go there the sea looks crystal clear. The cocktails would be a highlight for me too lol.

  • Mayuri Saxena - Wooow! Your travel photographs are tempting me to book my next vacation today. This looks like an amazing trip! I have never been on a cruise so I am going to check out Windstar cruise!

  • EscapeWriters - Hope your both business plan ideas will be successful so that you can have your dream island life at one of the French Caribbean islands. Lovely Pics!!!

  • Msddah - I plan on traveling more to the caribbean. I havent even been to any island yet. That ends this year!

  • David Elliott - All of those places look amazing. I know I would love to explore any or all of those islands. That’s so awesome you were able to see so much of them. Hopefully I can plan a trip out there someday.

  • Nayna Kanabar - Wow what an experience, each island looks great and it’s like being on paradise. I am sure you are glad you went exploring and chose not to stay on board.

  • Komal - My brother recently went to Grenada and he absolutely fell in love with it. Great list!

  • Ana Ojha - Your pictures speak for itself how surreal these islands are! Each one looks like a little paradise in itself! I’m planning a trip to the Caribean Islands soon and can’t wait to explore these destinations!

  • Sigrid Says - The Carribbean has been a long-time dream destination for me. Any of the islands will do. If I get lucky and get to visit 3, wow, that would be a bonus. Now, my interest in these islands has been reignited.

  • Sayanti - The Caribbean gives some really refreshing beach vibes. Personally, I would love to visit St. Barthelemy. The pictures of St. Barthelemy caught all my attention.

  • Denni - everything looks superb! I would love to go in a Caribbean cruise or something like that! beautiful photographs btw

  • Echoesofhervoice - Nice post!

  • Tahnee - Les Saintez looks incredible. I also love when getting lost equals adventures and finding treasures. Love you had such a great time x

  • Margaret Smith - What beautiful photos, I want to go.

  • LaiAriel Samangka - A stunning and refreshing place to enjoy. I love the scenic view!

When it comes to weddings, I love it when a family pitches in to make it great! And that’s exactly what happened with this lovely farm wedding. The family took care of coordinating, flowers and linens, and I dare say that this is one of the most beautiful venues I’ve seen (which is why there are a lot of images of it). Take a peek at this gorgeous wedding today!

Farm Wedding with DIY Details | Hill City Bride Virginia Wedding Blog


  • Kristy Bullard - This venue is perfect! So gorgeous! And the bride and groom look like they were a lot of fun.

  • Adriana - wow absolutely stunning. I love this idea for a wedding

  • megan beaver - I really love these farm style weddings. They are beautiful and since they have a rustic element to them it allows for a lot of farm decor and that is affordable. You can DIY so much and that makes a farm style wedding so affordable.

  • Our Family World - What a beautiful wedding! I love the color motif they chose and the best was the venue! I love the rustic and cozy atmosphere.

  • Jenna - Wow! What a beautiful location! I looove the color the bride chose for the bridesmaid dresses!

  • Kasia - This is such a great idea for a wedding venue. I definitely like this way better than having it in a ballroom. This is so much more unique and special. Looks like everybody had the best time. And I agree with you having the bridesmaids pick their own style of the dress to fit their taste is so thoughtful. Such lovely pictures.

  • Elizabeth O - What an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue this is! I love everything about this wedding the attention to detail is gorgeous!

  • Pat - How nice that the family coordinated the flower and linens at this wedding, and thanks for sharing the beautiful photos.

  • Meera - Wow the pictures speak whatever you want to say about the wedding. Love the place, the tone and the ambiance. It’s rustic and so very beautiful.

  • Preet - What a beautiful wedding, I love everything about it. The venue and the decor is so beautiful. The photography is just amazing, love the details of everything. The couple is so gorgeous.

  • LaiAriel Samangka - Wow, never heard about a farm wedding. Wha a fun idea! The photos are actually amazing – just like the whole set up and everything. The barn area is fabulous and would love to make it as a backdrop for a photoshoot.

  • Amalia Silva - I love weddings and wedding photos! These ones are so beautiful and all the details, my god!! Farm weddings are my favorite and my own one was similar to this!

Flower girls. They are adorable, plus they add an element of fun to the wedding day. But sometimes the expense of a one-time wear for an expensive dress just isn’t practical. One company, Rainey’s Closet, has amazing choices so that you can put your mind at ease and rent flower girl dresses instead!

Love this idea? I do, too! If you choose to rent from Rainey’s Closet through our affiliate links contained below, our blog will earn a commission, which doesn’t cost you a penny more.Β 

Rent Flower Girl Dresses with Rainey


  • Valdas - Every girl dreams of having such a dress. They really like such things, and they look fabulous with such dresses. For celebrations it is really worthwhile to rent such a dress.

  • Kansas Bonanno - oh my the aqua tutu dress is beautiful! My friend is getting married next year and my girls will be in her wedding, I’ll have to remember this for when its time!

  • jenna - We love using Rainey’s Closet! We rent for family photos and christmas dresses as well! Makes so much more sense than splurging on a dress they’re going to outgrow!

  • Jennifer - Such a smart choice for family photos! Their stuff is so beautiful. πŸ™‚

  • Crystal - Where was this post when I got married? πŸ™‚ Finding flower girl dresses was the hardest part! And they were so expensive!

  • Karlyn Cruz - These are beautiful but most flower girls are under the age of 8 which means it could be very challenging to get a dress back in good condition for that age group?

  • Pat - What a great idea to rent flower girl dresses from Rainey’s Closet. It’s kind of like men renting tuxedos.

  • Gladys Parker - Those flower girl dresses are so beautiful! When my son was getting married they had my two granddaughters as flower girls. My daughter and son in law had to shell out some big bucks for both girls dresses. Renting would have been an excellent idea.

  • kumamonjeng - Flower girls steal away every attention in a wedding!! So it is really important to dress them well! Those flower girls in the pictures look so adorable!

  • Adriana - I love this idea. They should have come up with something like this sooner lol

  • Jennifer - Actually, Rainey’s Closet will repair and clean – unless it’s damaged beyond where it can be repaired, but hopefully that wouldn’t happen at a wedding. And if there are any worries, they can have her change post ceremony. πŸ™‚

  • Dogvills - I totally agree with this idea. Why burn a hole in your pocket to buy a dress that your little girl may use only once? Renting is the best option, and the wide variety of fabrics, colors and designs to choose from are guaranteed to make any flower girl feel like a princess.

  • Alexine - Wow! love those dresses they look fabulous. My favorite would be Mocha and Soft Pink Dress that’s perfect for my wedding. Love all your photos!

  • Alison Rost - I think renting dresses is definitely so much better than having to buy one. It’s more affordable and you don’t have to worry about scheduling fittings. It’s really convenient!

  • Rosie Romance - Oh flower girls are so adorable and hiring dresses for them is a great way to cut back on the expense of a wedding. Thanks for sharing!

  • iya - louisa - Wow these dresses are amazing and I completely agree only problem is what happens when they spill things on themselves etc aha

  • AnnMarie John - I don’t know why I never thought about this one before but it does make a lot of sense to just rent a gown for your flower girl! The selections are lovely as well!

  • Komal - Personally I think that everything should be rented! I rented my bridesmaids dress for my last wedding I went too and it was amazing! I was never going to wear it again!!

  • Kathy Myers - My daughter’s wedding is coming up soon. This is a great idea to save money and look stylish at the same time.

  • Megan - I’ve never thought about this, but it makes so much sense! But what happens when they spill food though? Aaah! Definitely a great money saver and great idea!

  • Hannah Mitchell - With my wedding coming right around the corner, this is a great find!! I’m going to be sending this to my flower girls. Thanks for sharing!

  • Evelyn, PathofPresence - I never knew there was such a thing as your rent flower girl dresses. However it just makes perfect sense. I love the reasons as to why you would rent one that you listed. I can see it is probably a Wendy’s outfit and makes perfect sense to rent it.

  • Tahna de Veyra - They all look so pretty. I think the problem would be choosing the best. Great vendor recommendation right there.

  • London Mumma - I never knew that you could order to hire such beautiful dresses. Whilst it is great and an affordable way of saving money, I very much doubt my little daughter will be happy with me if I sent these gorgeous dresses back.

  • Brandon Hudson - Great article! The dresses are very nice and I will pass this along to a friend of mine who will be looking for dresses for a flower girl soon!

  • Jennifer - Ha! That’s true. I didn’t think about that aspect. πŸ™‚

  • Surekha - Love all the dresses. They are so pretty and will look great on little girls

  • MELANIE EDJOURIAN - These flower girls dresses are so much nicer than what was available when I got married. I didn’t realise that you could rent them, what a fantastic idea!!!!

  • Jhilmil Bhansali - Oh wow, these flower girl dresses are more than awesome for our little girls.. And I didn’t ever know that one can rent them for special days or even get a photoshoot of girls in them. They look so pretty!

  • T - I didn’t even know this was possible, my daughter has been a flower girl so many times not to mention she loves to get dressed up and take pictures!

  • Jennifer L - Wow I had no clue you could rent flower girl dresses. With weddings being so expensive, finding great ways to cut cost is definitely appreciated it. These dresses look adorable.

  • Eloise - I love the look of those flower girl dresses, so precious looking… If I ever become remarried in the future, my daughter would definitely look amazing in any of them… I’ll have to rent one from here!

  • Rachel - Those dresses are gorgeous! What cute little models! I agree with the points you raise and love the idea of hiring dresses – much cheaper!

  • LaiAriel Samangka - This is just absolutely amazing! I love how it was written.
