“We just want one of those cookie-cutter weddings that blows our budget,” said no engaged couple ever. Traditional weddings are fine for those who like that kind of thing, but chances are you’d prefer a one-of-a-kind event that you can put your own personal stamp on, from the food to the favors. BIG bonus points if it’s also budget-friendly. This might just be what’s fueling the casual brunch wedding trend that’s dominating Pinterest right now.
