Holy Moly! I'm a professional pastry chef and have made many cakes in a commercial kitchen and I have to say, your cake looks gorgeous! Nice job! Plus, thanks for the awesome tips and advice, I can't wait to put them into effect when I get married next fall!

This was such a help! Everything here is simply lovely.


My parents got married for under $8000 back in the 80s and have told me a frugal wedding is possible. Which is good, because I was so afraid I'd be too short on cash to get married! Your ideas are going to be a huge help planning my wedding.

Thank you so much for posting and sharing your wedding memories and tips!! My fiancee and I are both coming into our "second time around."  I had the "fairy-tale wedding first time around and he had the "jp" job. We would like to meet in the middle somewhere and want a small intimate wedding. Believe it or not, we all ready have our own wedding party which includes our combined "blended family." This is comprised of his four children, 22 down to age 15 and my two which are 14 and 8. And the best part: they equal 3 girls, 3 boys!! Voila, our own wedding party!!! We are shooting for September of 2010 and truly want to keep the costs down without our special day being "cheesey" Your tips have truly helped and I may borrow the ideas.


Thank you again, and it appeared to be a beuatiful day!


Lori & Kenny

I love your post! Crazy question, but do you still have the cookie spreadsheet? Would you be willing to email or post it for me? My wedding is a ways out, but i love to organize and plan ahead  and want to save as much as possible. Thanks!

I would also love the cookie spreadsheet you used and any others that you found really helpful if your open to it.  We are on a VERY tight budget and it's my first so I still want all the frills so being realistic I know there will be most/many things I need to DIY.  Thanks in advance
