National Weddings Month w/ Oriental Trading

With February being National Weddings Month, there's no better time to discuss bringing two people together.  Weddings are such an important milestone in anyone's life and a moment you want to cherish forever.  The wedding industry has capitalized on these special times and in my opinion taken advantage of a time when couples think less about money and more about love.  Because of this, planning a wedding can become stressful and a full time job.  But why?  Your special day doesn't have to become a miserable chore, especially with resources like Weddings by Oriental Trading.

Instead of hiring expensive professionals to spend more of your money planning and picking everything for your special day.  Spend less doing it yourself just as easily.  While a lot of people might hear the phrase do it yourself and feel overwhelmed thinking this means more time and work on your plate, it really doesn't have to.  Friends and family are usually right there to help especially during such an important time in your life.

Pinning your dream wedding ideas is simple with the social media we have available and ideas can easily be put together with stores like Oriental Trading.  They do all the hard work matching products and grouping themed necessities.  I helped do exactly this for my sisters wedding.  Events of any level can be quite costly especially if you celebrate like we do!  While we have a ton of fun doing so, these large celebrations have become crazy costly and we knew we'd have to cut back.  

We put together a wedding using items like the Snowflake and Tulle Backdrop Idea which was a beautiful scene we placed behind the head table where we were on stage.  The Two Hearts Wedding Aisle Runner was a beautiful decor accessory.  Using the Wedding Reception Table Ideas for the wedding reception decor, we made beautifully themed centerpieces.  The Brown Satin Wedding Ring Pillow was perfect for our ring bearers (since we only had little boys in the wedding party.  The easy to make Chocolate Brown Custom Photo Hexagon Bubble Bottles helped send off the couple staying with our Fall theme.
Less money was spent in the end and even less stress by creating these ideas on our own.  While we did assembly a few table settings and various decor, it was easy to do weeks in advance.  Honestly, the hardest part was decorating the day of and even so recruiting some very capable friends to help was only a matter of asking.  In the end, the reward of making the dream on our own was irreplaceable.
Oriental Trading also has a $1,000 Wedding Giveaway running for those who might be planning their own special moment currently.
