Our Wedding: The Ultimate What We Bought Where

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I'm sharing a huge post of what we bought where for our wedding. I know that I often am curious where people buy things and I wanted to make sure we shared in case anyone wants to know!

This is going to be a huge post full of a lot of links but just remember I purchased every item with my own money and the views expressed in this post are 100% my own.

First up, my wedding dress. 

I wanted a super simple wedding dress and this dress delivered but also made me feel like a real life princess! I purchased this dress at Alexandra's Boutique in Fall River MA. There is no designer on the dress so I'm not even sure who it's by but I absolutely loved it. Alexandra's has a million different types of dresses so I highly recommend it as the place to shop for your dress. The sparkly belt came on the dress as well and I absolutely loved the sparkle.

I purchased these robes from the Etsy shop the fancypidgeon. The listing for them is here. I ordered seven blush robes with letter embroidery on the front for each of my bridesmaids and one white robe with "Mrs. Gooding" on the back for myself.

Also my earrings are shown in this picture and they were also purchased at Alexandra's Boutique during my accessories appointment.

My hairpiece was one of my all time favorite parts of my outfit and was purchased at Alexandra's Boutique. My hairdresser Kayla made it work perfectly and I wish my hair looked like this every day!

All our bouquets were fake! They were purchased from and the exact link is here. I ended up cutting the two little buds off the top and no one was the wiser. I was adamant about not spending money on real flowers and I'm so glad I stuck with my gut and saved that money.

Also in the picture you can see our wedding bands which we purchased on James Allen. It's also where my engagement ring came from!

The girls all bought their bridesmaid dresses at David's Bridal. The dresses I picked for them were in steel blue and can be found here.  I thought the color was gorgeous and the length was perfect since they didn't have to worry about the dress flying around like crazy in the wind.

Our place cards were sand dollars that my mom purchased I believe at Christmas Tree Shop. I used twine that I found at Michaels and printed every guest name on cardstock on our own printer.

This Happily Ever After Starts Here sign came from either Marshalls or TJ Maxx. During the summer there was a whole wedding section which was great to browse!

Our programs were just printed on cardstock at home and the teal and white basket came from Target.

We had a few chalkboard easels that we used for various signs and they were all purchased at Michaels. I found that Michaels was a great place for many wedding items! I would highly recommend checking it out if you plan on doing any DIY projects.

Tim's suit was custom made through Jos. A Bank. He picked the color, style and everything with a stylist named Jack who was awesome. He also bought his shoes and shirt from Jos. A Bank but ordered the ties and pocket squares for him and his groomsmen from The Tie Bar. 

The Mr & Mrs sign came from Marshalls/ TJ Maxx and was one of my favorite decor pieces. The starfish that were scattered throughout our ceremony were picked up by my mom from The Christmas Tree Shop. 

The centerpieces were made of pieces from Michaels. The vases and sand came from Michaels and the white unscented candles came from Walmart. 

In background you can see my sparkly clutch which came from DSW. I loved it and honestly thought it was worth it to hold my lipstick and phone throughout the night.

See those yellow dice? They were purchased from Amazon and were great for the game we played. If you are looking for oversized dice these are definitely inexpensive and worth it.

Our ring bearers carried these briefcases from The Knot which I absolutely loved! Their sunglasses were purchased by Tim on Knockaround.

All of the groomsmen wore suits that were rented from Jos A. Bank. Their ties and pocket squares were from The Tie Bar.

The flower girl dresses were purchased from Target and all three girls looked so adorable!

The flower girl baskets came from Amazon. The listing for them is here and I loved how simple they were. The girls seemed to enjoy carrying them around and filling them up with sand and dumping flowers out of them.

Our favors were Photo Booth photo magnets that I found on Amazon. They were great and people really seemed to like them! We also have a ton of leftovers so that means we can put all sorts of photo booth pictures on our fridge.  

Our table numbers were printed offline and placed in frames that I found at Kohls. I picked the color Robin's Egg Blue and thought they looked great with all the other blues and beachy colors we had going on. 

Our cake came from Scrumptions and our white cake stand came from HomeGoods. I am glad we had a super simple cake stand because it really made all the sand crumbles stand out!

The trays we filled with sand and used for our place cards all came from HomeGoods during a very lucky shopping trip!

The frame on the table held one of our engagement pictures and came from Marshalls/ TJ Maxx.

Our guestbook was made from a family friend who has her own Etsy shop.  I love it and am so glad we had it made!

Our cardbox was made by my brother and I purchased the decal for it off Etsy. 

I have previously posted a couple Wedding Hauls which you can find here and here.  In these posts you can see closer up shots of everything that we purchased.

If you are looking for what shoes I wore during the ceremony you can see them in this post.  If you are looking for the shoes I wore during the rest of the night you can see them here. During that post I also shared the container we used for our guestbook markers and a closer look at the chalkboard signs. 

I also previously shared the gifts I purchased for everyone in the following posts:

I think that's everything! If you are looking for anything else revolving around our wedding you can find every post I've ever written surrounding it here. If you have any questions about anything feel free to leave me a comment or e-mail me, I'm always happy to answer :)
