So officially bought all the stuff to make my DIY passport invites, total cost $47 and can make 50 of them.....cost to do them through etsy would be $190 for 30!!!! Total savings, $147......I think that was a smart choice. Also, as of today we officially saved enough to pay for the ceremony, and my dress has been paid for already. Now to work on saving for the OOT bags, extras, rings, and honeymoon LOL Although we do have half the honeymoon paid off too

      That's some good savings!  That must be a good feeling!

       

      I'm putting my deposit and on the photographer tomorrow and we're planning to pay our remaining balance for our Honeymoon and the wedding at the resort by the end of September. It's crazy how much money we'll be spending in the next 8 weeks but it'll feel good to have it paid!!!

          I'm actually kind of hoping that everyone can't come so that we stay on budget (bad brownsugarbride, I know!).  We'll have an at-home reception (not too expensive) for people that we don't invite/can't come to the wedding, but I am not losing a minute of sleep worrying about people that can't come.  And although I have used this gif before in this thread, it never goes out of style when people start bothering you about the wedding. 

          Meee toooo. !! More for me to have that I want at reception without thinking of paying pp..stay the hell home!
