We hired an amazing DJ and found a wonderful caterer to create a Mexican family style meal for us, and used the rest of the budget to provide plenty of wine and cocktails, and of course a dessert and then candy bar. My mom, step mom, and sister put together all of the flowers and bouquets for us, and since I hated the idea of throwing away 15 table arrangements after just a few hours, we used white orchids as centerpieces and told everyone to take them home. My incredible bridesmaid Katie, who is a graphic designer, did a really great job on all of the print materials. My sister and her boyfriend helped Harrison design and order custom suits (Don Draper inspired) through their menswear company. Family friends drove the cakes in from my favorite bakery in Sacramento. Instead of hiring a planner, my sister and my best friend (co-MOHs), parents and bridesmaids coordinated everything for me on the day of. My sister did my makeup and my good friend from high school who is now a hairdresser did our hair. It was truly a family effort and that made it so special. Our vendors were phenomenal.
