    I don't know if this is considered a tip, but I used a site called http://hospitalityframes.com for my themed favors and they really helped me out. I got custom themed everything at good rate. I also would used alot of local small businesses in my area and they were more flexible with rates. My advice is to tell your potential vendors your budget upfront and that should hall avoid mark up.

    Great tips! It all adds up so fast and it is hard to not just buy stuff whenever I see it.

The only problem I have is the space to keep everything 1 year and a half before the wedding. lol I am doing a lot of DIY projects:STDs,Invitations, Programs. I've found the flower girls dress for like $34.99 online and the bridesmaid dress for $84 online. I am also contemplating on a knock off dress to save some serious dough as the Pronovias dress that I fell in love with is $2700. Thanks for the tip regarding shoes tho. I will definitely look in the winter. But where has everyone gone to score deals on the jewelry?

        Charming Charlie's!  They have everything that these bridal shops charge triple the money to buy!  They have clearance sales and B1G1Free on clearance.  It's a great accessories store that is divided by color.  They have purses, bracelets, earrings, etc.

            Thanks for the tips! my wedding is still not for another 2 years but i'm just looking around seeing what i like and what i need to get. I noticed that you mentioned that you brought your own center pieces. I thought these came included with the DW package. Is that right or am i supposed to bring my own? 

             

            thanks for the help! I'm kind of overwhelmed, thank god i'm starting early!

              Tinker I think it depends not only on the resort you pick, but the package you pick as well.

                It depends on what resort you pick but my understanding is that most resorts charge for each centre piece. Some resorts have a decorations package that you can chose but again there is a charge associated with that.
