When we got married 7 years ago I planned almost all of it myself. While most girls dream of a "Big", extravagant day that costs more than most cars, I wanted a beautiful wedding but refused to spend tens of thousands of dollars. I knew that if I put my mind to it I could still have everything we wanted and not spend too much.
Since our wedding was 7 years ago pinterest wasn't around yet, but I still found enough DIYs just searching on google. I did as much as I could myself some of which included bags for my bridesmaids, favors, centerpieces, flowers, and bathroom baskets. I loved how it made the day extraordinary and personal, and now that pinterest exists you can find a countless array of ideas for your big day!
Watch the trailer here.
With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son's wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future - and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process. Screenplay by Justin Zackham. Directed by Justin Zackham.
