Real Wedding: Lasheka & Donald

This weekend I had the pleasure of coordinating a wedding in Chicago. My husband's cousin Lasheka and her fiance got married this weekend on Saturday. We planned this wedding in two months with a limited budget. It was a whirlwind, but it turned out so beautiful. Click here to see the previous post about all the invitations, bouquets, centerpieces, and wedding accessories I made for this wedding.

Bridal Party Table

The ceremony and the reception was all in the same place, so I put the unity candle on the bridal party table and it doubled as the centerpiece.

The Aisle

I put 6 tables that sat 7 on either side of the aisle

The Centerpiece and Table Settings

The table settings were all plastic, but they were so beautiful that you wouldn't even notice. The water glasses, champagne glasses, favor boxes, and vases were from Dollartree.com and the plates and utensils were from drugstore.com

My Beautiful Bride Lasheka

I made all of the bouquets and boutonnieres. If you would like some custom bouquets, contact me through my etsy store eventsbytammy.etsy.com

Bride and Groom after the ceremony

The bridesmaids wore beautiful malibu blue colored dresses from Davids bridal, and the groomsmen wore Ivory tuxes with malibu blue vest from Mens Wearhouse. The bride's dress and the groom's tux were all ivory.

 The Reception

Check out the beautiful details on her dress. It was gorgeous.

The Cake

This beautiful cake was from Walmart. Can you believe it? It was so pretty, and it tasted good. I added the flowers down the side and cake topper. It cost less than $200, and there was  around 118 servings. If you have a Walmart Supercenter in your town and you are planning a wedding on a budget, please check out their wedding cakes. You will not be dissappointed.
