Hi All PW Members,
I found this site after my husband and I married in June 2012. Certainly wished I had found it sooner. What got me started was planning our wedding with a budget of $5,000. My husband and I have known each other about 8 years and finally decided we should get married. I'm such a thrifty person, yes I love garage sales, thrift stores and coupons! I keep record of all my spending and savings. As of January 2012, I saved over $5,000 from my spending to alot for our wedding. Mind you, my husband and I make decent salaries, but I was raised by a thrifty mother and so I save! Well, anyway, I work in the educations field and my husband is an engineer. We love southern California and travel when we can afford to...lol...with my coupons in hand..lol...sometimes I make him crazy, but I save us a ton of money!

Congratulations on your nuptials.
You are actually in my neck of the woods and had mentioned in a comment that you found a inexpensive photographer. Would you be able to pass on the details? My sister is getting married in Torry Pines and has a budget of 5k. I would love love love if we could add a photographer (she says she doesn't need pics but i know she'll wish she had them) thank you
