Personally, I am looking to do a very frugal DW. For those in the same boat as me, depending on your taste here are some of my ideas:
- Consider whether it's really that important to have a private reception. I've been to two DWs now where the reception dinner was in a semi-private area of one of the a la cartes, and one was not private (they just set us up in the a la carte). I thought it was great - you are still sharing your reception with your guests, and if other random people from the resort stop and say congrats, then great! It's not for everyone but I think that's the way I will go to save $$ on the whole private dinner thing. The reception dance/party was on the beach and was not private either - and it was lots of fun!
- I am all about picking the key important items that really matter to me and not focusing too much on the rest. I really don't care about centerpieces, flowers (I'm sure whatever comes with the free or cheapy package will be just lovely), or upgraded cakes. Those are not things I will think back on when I remember my wedding day.
- I think I will request RSVP via email (and probably setup a separate email account for wedding stuff), instead of sending out response cards with envelopes and postage. If you invite 100 people, that's quite a bit you've saved by skipping the return postage.
This online store had some super cheap, pretty wedge sandals (and a ton of other stuff too):
Wedding Cake Toppers - Monogram Cake Toppers - Cake Toppers - Wedding Shoes - Bridal Shoes
Just be warned, their return policy is pretty strict so make sure you read it if you're concerned about the sizing.

So, when there was a dinner only reception, there were dancing options? That would be awesome.
