    Haha Hclibby!!! It's me! I'm the cheapskate! FI could care less, he just says yes to everything lol but I just can't bring myself to spend so much on things I know I could do myself. Besides I'm a bit of a narcissistic, i secretly was dying to tell people "yea...i made them!"  But I am splurging on other things, mainly my attire and stuff and the photographer and the dj. I am doing my own centerpieces b/c the resort charges a ridiculous fee for something simple.

            Vistaprint is great too if you get the groupons! That's how I did the menus, place cards and will do the programs. Im sick of printing lol. The invitations took me forever b/c I'm a perfectionist but I was ready to get rid of them!

            Posted Image I made these vases with my friend for our engagement party next saturday. In total for 6 it cost me $7 to make them lol. And we made a really cute collage also. I cant justify spending rediculous amounts on stuff i can do for cheaper. My std were cute but when we got them from the lady some were broken and honestly i could have done them for cheaper. Oh well

              There's a past BDW bride who has made a business out of making the passports and save the dates . Amongst other stuff for those of us that aren't too creative. Her Facebook page is Vanessa's destination wedding invitations. She is pretty reasonable I think. I emailed her and she even gave me options. I can put them together after she prints them to save money. Don't know if I'll use her yet but thought I'd share. :0)
