Despite keeping costs down as much as possible Josh and I are still over our initial wedding budget. Hopefully we can find some more creative ways to save money to help keep our numbers down.

No matter what colors you've chosen for the wedding, there's a shade of daisy to go along with it. The cheer and innocence of daisies pair well with yellow flowers that pick up the golden tones of a daisy’s center, like yellow roses or Asiatic lilies.
