Well ladies- you all had such great stories and advice that the budget guesses seemed less important. I really loved hearing all the ways you made the weddings you took part in lovely without trying to break the bank!!!
Since only 3 of you posted I decided to have a first second and third place!! Hey it's my blog- I can do that!!!
So(drum roll please!!!!!!!)
Third place winner is KATY!!!! WOO!HOO!!!!(*loud applause and cheering)
Second place is CANDACE-More applause and cheering
and LEEZARD has the first place spot(wild cheering) with her guess of $1500-
(Please email me with all your addresses so I can get your prize in the mail by Friday)
The actual budget was set at $1000- however we went over about $250- as far as we can tell.
I can tell you that it turned out gorgeous and oh so sweet!
I'm only posting a picture of a tired bride now but in a few days(Ihope) I will have some pictures and a story to share of the whole event!
The most used word was -original- everyone seemed delighted with it and it was great fun .
We estimated 200 + folks- with 2-3 in line the food was running low- the hearty food anyway.
More later with pictures!!!
Congratulations girls- don't forget to send me your address!!
