One must be thrift.
Because the Wedding will be outdoors, with no one overseeing the goings-on aside from ourselves, much of the implements that would normally be rented, are having to be bought or... rethought.
All this weekend, IKEA held a 7% discount to offset sales tax. On top of the discount we already have from working there, now was the time to strike. Dani and I gathered up some of the reception essentials in bulk, and I had the pleasure of hauling it 1.1 miles it back to the house.
130 napkins, 48 candles/holders, 14 flat sheets (don't ask), 11 woven rugs, 8 pairs of mesh curtain, and 4 serving trays.
