Bling on a Budget at The Wingate by Wyndham
My favorite part of this styled photo shoot was how easy it was to create a gorgeous wedding with killer details on a budget! We asked every vendor to show off their talents. The Wingate by Wyndham in West Chester is a wonderful venue. I had no idea that they actually have reception menus starting at amazing prices with no added room cost for the reception. Plus their hotel has great rooms for guests.
Our first stop after walking through the venue and dreaming was to pick the wedding dress! You wouldn’t believe the inexpensive price tag on this unique designer dress. At the venue we used the provided white linens and napkins and added an organza overlay. For floral we had a unique tall statement piece for the escort card table and we borrowed the glass table top. We also used mirrors on the guest tables along with candles to provide warmth to the room, because one thing that can make a big difference in a room is lighting. Having drapery to frame the head table made me swoon! And we didn’t forget the details – the custom stationery was inspired by the wedding dress and each piece had just the right amount of sparkle. The custom "cake pop" cake was so much fun and unique!
We hope you will be inspired by this fun styled photo shoot!
A special thank you to all of the talented wedding professionals who contributed to this project – we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you! And to the amazing staff at the Wingate by Wyndham, thank you for making our design into a reality. You were so wonderful to work with and your attention to detail was incredible!
