    That's cheap! It'll really cost you a lot money. I'll never know about that.

          My biggest piece of advice for saving money, start early and often. I got some great deals on things through eBay and because I'm not in a hurry, I can wait for shipping from Hong Kong. I've also used Craigslist (got a great veil for $10) and bought my wedding dress used (recycledbride.com)  Always search the words "coupon code" with the name of the website before ordering ANYTHING.  Also, sign up at a website called Fatwallet.com which gives you cash back when you click through their site first (good for travel sites too!) I did the vistaprint thing and got a ton of stuff for free, only paid $10.40 for shipping for everything. (clicked through another site with top 10 free items and then it just kept updating the same shopping cart) Thanks to everyone for adding their ideas to this thread, absolutely no reason to overspend just got it's got "wedding" in the name.

              Great post! It's very reaffirming cuz I've been doing a lot of this and have purchases quite a few things already for a great deal! But I forgot about the Dollar Store; gotta check that out one of these days! :) Thanks for sharing!

                These are all good things to keep in mind.  Our starting budget was put together with the most it could cost us.  I am planning on being well under that at the end.

                  Since my budget is tight too, I have been signing up for all the wedding giveaways, donations you name it.

                  I sign up for wedding favors giveaway after reading their article on http://www.prweb.com/releases/wedding-supplies/wedding-favors/prweb4806584.htm

                  I even called wedding-supplies.com regarding this giveaway, they were kind enough to answer all my questions. looks promising.

                    I have signed up to every single wedding site and most of them run giveaways. If you enter most of them you can end up wining something valuable and usefull.
                    I read this article and guess what? I sign up!

                      These are some great, very helpful tips!  I had never thought of Michael's for things.
