        I am also a fan of the dollar store.

        I have my sister and my mom checking out the stock at the dollar store on regular basis. We've found so many great things for our welcome bags and decoration.

            I'm glad to see budget brides out there like me. I have seen so many planning threads with such beautiful expensive invites etc, I started to feel bad that my stuff was a little lower quality. It gets the job done, right? =)

              I am unsure if I want to wear a veil if its going to be windy so instead of buying a $$$ one from a bridal store I am going to get one on ebay. They sell on ebay starting at $3! They are such a good deal i might get a traditional veil and a fun birdcage type too.

                Such a good thread! Our budget is around $7,000....purely for the fact that we are paying CASH for everything. I have been blessed with a great family and great friends. We have gotten services given to us because we know people. Like our photographer....we get him for our engagement pics, wedding pics, TTD pics, and AHR...total of four days and travel....FREE! It's great to know the right people! I would have never thought to make my own veil. So great!

                      I don't know about everyone else, but I am using my mom's dress. Its free, but then I'm updating it a bit to fit my taste, but it is costing me a TON less. Not just in the money department, but also the stress level of looking for the perfect dress! Plus its so amazing to wear her dress on my wedding day! Its perfect for a destination wedding...she got married in Maui!

                      I love to find other frugal girls! Great ideas!
