So My wedding is In September of 2010. And our budget is TINY. My fiancee was laid off from his job just over a year ago, and has been in school since. We decided to get married despite the circumstances. Thankfully I'm doing a lot of DIY with help from my mom. I plan to make my dress, and do all the bouquets myself. I will be updating periodically as I make more things, but heres a start. (questions, comments and criticisms are always welcome!)
My husband and I, after the i do's. I made my dress, total cost 200$
Here is me with my bridesmaids- we made all of the bouquets from supermarket flowers- total cost including ribbon, wire and floral tape 35$
First off- My wedding guest book- an 8x8 scrapbook ($5) with pages I made myself (paper and supplies $6) total cost- $11
I wanted people to be able to sign more than just their name. there are 20 pages and they are all different!
Next is the cake knife and server. I didnt want to spend much on these, since no one ever notices them or remembers them, but they do show up in pictures. the knife and server were both from a dollar store ($2) and the ribbon was $1.50- total cost plus tax? about $5
Up next- pew decorations for the church. Three red fake flowers tied with ribbon. these will be on the pews with the traditional tulle swag. all supplies from the dollar tree, total cost (including the extra flowers and ribbon becuase I cant count: $15
and my necklace- not made by me, I bought it on etsy!
I finished the ring bearer pillows. they are satin (remnants from my dress) embroidered at work (I work for an embroidery comapny) and stuffed with stash. total cost? 0$ There are two becuase I have two nephews- only one will have the actual rings on his pillow.
My fiancees ring will be tied on the other end of the string- only mine is tied on in the picture.
