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



bow detail



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.

Aqua and Red.  oddly enough, red was supposed to be the main color and aqua was the accent, but Im finding more stuff I like in aqua... anyway, all the flowers are going to be red, the ring bearer pillows will be red and my shoes are red  Cheesy which i am so excited about!

How fantastic! We're tightwadding, too, so I am all too familiar with that A-HA moment thrill of getting something fabulous done on the cheap. Great job!

Pew decorations are done! (will post pics soon) Ring bearer pillows are in the making, and my dress will be made the first week of august while I'm off of work.  Favors still need to be wrapped, and the invites still need to be printed....

I cant find ties for the groomsmen that I like so when I go dress fabric shopping I'll look for tie fabric as well.

Cute! I love those colors together. My friends recently posted Facebook photos of their sister/sister-in-law's wedding which took place 4th of July weekend and had a red and aqua theme. It was very Southern and summery from the pictures - the guys were in seersucker, which I think looks great with the red & aqua theme. Much cheaper than formal tuxedos too!
