I am A CHEAPO!

Recommended Posts

Amber, I just got back from Cabo last night, and Costco has several cakes that looked delicious, and a huge flan...like maybe 16" in diameter, that could serve a crowd. So check out Costco when you stock up on alcohol & water and you should definitely be able to find something!

You don't sound cheapo at all. You actually sound like you are doing so many of the exact same things so many of us are planning to do as well.

 

I'm keeping flower costs down by using silk and transporting them -- no flowers for the guys -- myself and BM only.

 

Making and bringing all of our centerpieces as well (simple and under $5 each).

 

Got a great deal on my dress and got my TTD dress for a steal on eBay.

 

Bringing our iPod and renting only speakers instead of a DJ (but really so we can listen to what WE want and not what a resort DJ has available)

 

Made STD and invites on our own saved us literally HUNDREDS of dollars.

 

Our budget is $15K and we should be right on target -- hopefully!

Hi! If you are still on here I would love to hear about who you rented your speakers from and how the iPod went! :) I am wanting to do that too I think!

I am with Cassie here, I want to know more information so I can borrow (I meant to write steal but ya know) your information. It sounds like you had everything planned out and were able to save some money that way. I am learning so much from just browsing here J
