Obviously, we can’t all have ABC pay for our wedding while having Mindy Weiss plan every detail with us and have the fabulous Mark’s Garden as our florist and have an unlimited budget in the process. So, this got us thinking. How can we get Sean and Catherine’s look for less?
…And even their trendy naked wedding cake.
When trying to re-create a look for less, think about what you liked most. Was it the dreamy, draping fabric? If so, you might like this
We love this picture because it encompasses so many elements from Sean and Catherine’s ceremony….chandeliers, roses and draping fabric.

Now, onto that seating. IT. WAS. GORGEOUS! And so different. We loved the mix of the gold chiavaris with vintage love seats and even the touch of end tables scattered throughout. If you’re anything like us, our favorite was the vintage furniture. But let’s get real, we can’t all afford to have real furniture for all of our guests to sit in for only 30 minutes one day. So, what if you just designated that for your reserved rows- parents and grandparents. Then, do a mix of slip covers for your chiavaris and not all of them have to have a cover. Catherine had two or three covers on hers and some without anything. Look at all the unique cover options
These are just a few. The ideas are endless.
Finally, that naked wedding cake. Does anyone else remember our local McDonough celebrities, Matt and Ginny? You can keep up with them here. Well, they had a naked cake before naked cakes were cool.
Ladies, this is one part of Sean and Catherine’s day that you can re-create without cutting any corners. Yep, naked cakes are completely affordable.
Until the next bachelor wedding… we’ll all keep re-creating this one.
