With Pinterest boards and more than ample supply of wedding-themed inspiration, planning can be stressful. Even more stressful? Feeling pressured to nail a Pinterest-worthy look on a tight budget.

That’s what drove this innovative shoot by L’Estelle Photography: two gorgeous looks in the same theme, at three different, but affordable prices. Both looks feature white, grey, and gold hues for a rustic-glam vibe.

The Gowns:

            Both featured gowns come from the Pronovias Collection.

            The budget-friendly look features an empire-line mermaid gown with a bateau neckline. Crepe, tulle, and lace are a truly elegant combination with floral detailing and a low sweetheart neckline.

For the second look, the same mermaid silhouette featuring a V-open back, sweep train, and gemstones. It’s a similar but slightly more glamorous look.

The Flowers:

            The first look showcases white hydrangeas and roses, both affordable picks. Hydrangeas especially create elegant fullness without a heavy price. The table garlands were made with stems of Italian ruscus and cut flowers–without twined techniques, and only one type of greenery, a lot of labor costs were cut.

The more expensive look features gorgeous but high-end roses, ranunculus, anemones, orchids, and dusty miller. The table garden is fuller, with bunches of greenery to create a layered effect.

Dessert Table:

            A cupcake tower typically will run you less than a traditional cake, and using both miniature and regular sizes add variety. The lightly hued buttercream is given a touch of elegance with edible gold pearls.

For more generous budgets, this three-tiered cake features peach-toned fondant, intertwined gold rings, and dipped feathers. Both elegant and modern, a cake this size feeds about 80 people.
