I LOVE that you posted this!!  It turned out so pretty, and the best part- you aren't in debt over one day!!!!  I am a firm believer in googling coupon codes before I buy anything online.  Would love to see more pics!

Thanks everyone!  To be fair, I did have 2 years to plan though.  That makes it easier, I think.  Also, I am pretty laid back.  By the end, I really wanted to just go the JOP route though!  I did not get all of my DIY done, and I did not care. I got sick the week before, DH was sick for 3 weeks and not well day of, I had to work until 2 days before and had no help at all from anyone until the day before.  The S'Mores were all assembled the day before, I finished my dress the day before, hair flower...yep...the day before.  I kept telling myself...it's one day, only one day, LOL!

Your wedding was beautiful for the total cost spent. How many guests did you all have? I'm having a hard time and my budget is $5000 for a beach wedding. The dress hunt itself is beginning to be a pain in the butt. :(

We budgeted for 75.  About 50 showed.  I lucked out on my dress.  I got it from blowoutbridal.com.  It was on sale for 128.00.  When it came, it had some damage at the bottom of the tulle on the side of the train.  I called them up, they offered to exchange the dress.  All they has was ivory in my size so I asked for a deal.  Tulle is a buck a yard at wal mart or joanns with a coupon and 2 yards was sufficient to repair the damage.  They came back with an offer, I accepted. Check them out or try the following:


1. Pearlsplace.com and netbride.com once you find a gown you like, they heavily discount them.


2. bravobride.com, oncewed.com, preownedweddingdresses.com,, recycledbride.com  these sites sell used dresses.  Also check out this site brides against breast cancer


3. I have also heard good things about dressily me and milly bridal. 


Good luck!
