Budget-Friendly Bohemian Wedding in Provence


August 27, 2019

Roxane and Stephane were married in Provence in a low key, inexpensive wedding that felt perfectly right for them. They spent €5000 on food and drink, €400 on a venue and everything else was either gifted or they already owned.

The bride’s mum organised the entire reception for them. The bridesmaids and groomsmen chose their own outfits, friends did the hair and make up, DJed and helped with the decor.

“Our wedding was not expensive ans every of our friends and family helped us out with decorations and everything we needed”, said the bride. “Our photographer was a friend. He took the most beautiful pictures for us with all his heart and we could feel that our close relationship with him meant we got amazing pictures.”

“The wedding theme was bohemian and rustic”, Roxane continued. “I wanted the colours to be green, gold and light pink. We used a lot of natural materials – wood and flowers.”

Having the bride’s mum organising everything for them was quite stressful for her, and their only regret is that they couldn’t help her out more on the day. “My wedding was the most beautiful to me”, she concluded, “but I regret that my mum got so exhausted by it.”
