We just got the FI a pair of linen pants from Banana that were $20 off, plus I had a coupon for 35% off. In the end his pants were less than $50!!! There are deals to be had everywhere!

Example: I think programs for a small wedding are silly if we all have the same backgrounds and traditions. Plus most people throw them away. I will not have programs. I don't care for garters- they feel weird and I won't be tossing it. I won't be buying one.
Once you sit back and really think of your wants and needs it is easy to eliminate some fluff. Just think you have a stunning setting that guests will already remember.
Having a DW on a budget is definitely doable!!

We printed our own mailing labels in a matching color and font on clear labels, and then the invite, response card and everything is one trifold with a rip off card. That way postage is regular and you dont pay for envelopes or inserts. We wanted to send about 100 invites or more, and we knew only 30 people were coming. It only cost about 100 bucks, and we had a seashell themed invite. It was perfect for our needs.
