We did our wedding in nine weeks and under $3000! You can soooo do it! (oh, and next November will be our 6th wedding anniversary)
I think that we are going to be able to do it. We are planning on a cruise for our honeymoon... so that is a big budget saver, and neither of us have been on one. I also have a friend that has offered the use of any of her wedding supplies (which I will be taking her up on that offer, and it should help tons). I am shopping thrift stores, using Oriental trading & the dollar tree (everything a dollar!). Not to mention TONS of DIY craft projects, mostly inspired by you wonderful ladies here.
A bunch of people have told me that it isn't possible, but that just makes me want to prove them wrong! I'm working on a inspiration board, color scheme, and project list. Hopefully it will be posted in the next few days!
