I love love love this article, im planning my wedding and we're both college students and its less than 9 months away so needless to say we are trying to stick to a strict budget. I was wondering do you know the name of the person who made you dress on ebay i was looking into having my dress custom made as well but was too nervous because i wasnt sure how the dress would turn out. if you could give me the contact information to them i would appreciate it sooo much! Thanks!

Great ideas... I do have one question. How did you go about approaching the churches for tables and chairs? This would be a great help for me just not sure how to go about it since we are not members of any particular church. Thanks

Thank you SO much for posting this article :) I've been talking with a lot of friends who are currently married and they keep trying to tell me that it can't be done for under 5k. You're such an inspiration!! =]

Thank you so much for this article. I don't know the average cost of a wedding in the US, but here in Germany it's about 10,000 €. As a young couple (both of us are students), we just don't want to spend that amount of money.
Your tips are really good, well thought through and different.


When was your wedding and would you share a link to some of your wedding pictures to see how things turned out?


Greetings from Germany

Thank you for the article.  I've been grappling for several sleepless nights trying to figure out the food.  We have been thinking about DIY barbque but it still gets spendy and complicated.  I showed my daughter(the bride) this article re.the dessert table and she  LOVED it~ THANK YOU!

Crackle, in the US the average cost is around $25,000 which I think is close to 10,000 Euros.

This was FANTASTIC!  Thank you so much for sharing!  Yes, can you tell us who your ebay vendor was who you bought your dress from?  I am thinking about doing buying my dress through ebay from a chinese vendor, but I'm hesitant :/   Thanks again for a great article!
