      I also find that you have to look often, take your time in the stores, look at every item, see how you can use it for your wedding.

      Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                  Nice post! Thanks.

                  So far I have been able to go under budget for pretty much everything I set out to buy. I bought a wedding saree with dupatta (veil) for $600 that would have normally been $1500. My fiance and I got a great value on my e-ring which came with a matching band ($3500 for 1.4 carats plus sidestones). Instead of buying indian wedding jewelry set for $300, I will spend $10-$50 on a really nice rhinestone necklace that I will wear as a tikka/tiara and accent with a nice necklace and earrings from my repetoire. I am really happy with my spending so far and I hope to keep it up. With you guys as a great source of advice, I am sure to have no problem :)

                    also, if you are in New England...you can find some great priced items at the Christmas Tree Shop!

                      wow I never would have thought of getting the bridesmaid dresses from Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe! That is a great idea!

                      I wanted to get my dress ASAP but reading this makes me want to wait til this seasons dresses are on clearance!

                      ALso does anyone know if it is cheaper to get Save the Dates on vistaprint or print them out yourself? Printer cartridges are pretty expensive for color so which do you think is cheaper?
