Alicia & Kyle

Alicia-Kyle-Main

When we first laid eyes on Alicia and Kyle's bold and colorful wedding, we couldn't take our eyes off the vibrant and unique details. Alicia, an artist, was inspired by a CMYK color palette and went for funky and unique touches that she could DIY. The result? A one-of-a-kind celebration full of eye candy, proving that you don't need a huge budget to achieve some wow factor. Here is what Alicia had to say about the wedding planning and execution:

When I first met Brandiann Kanya, the first thing I said to her, after the muscle memory response, “Great to meet you,” was, “I love your blouse.”  She told me she got a great deal on it at a secondhand shop. Ah, I thought, a girl after my own heart. I, like Brandi, am a sucker for an honest, can’t-pass-up bargain.  In no time we became fast friends, and I was honored to be invited to her wedding.

The more I got to know Brandi and her family, the more I realized that I, a recently engaged gal, could learn a lot from her.  Not only is she the queen of blouse bargain shopping, she makes saving money an everyday occurrence, whether it’s shopping for her young daughters or planning her own wedding.  She proved to me throwing a classy wedding doesn’t mean breaking the bridal bank.

She was kind enough to share with me (and you!) some ideas that are realistic and will have you saving money for other things, like the honeymoon!
