Ohh I love this! Only just started but I wanted to share to help other brides if I could. So far Lets see...


My dress : $99.00 super sale at David's Bridal


My Ceremony venue: $50.00 Botanical Gardens


Here are some other things I didn't really FIND but we're doing to cut costs:


Photography : Free cause my dad is a photographer


Honeymoon : Disney vacation club members so we stay a week at Disney on my parent's    membership


Transportaion : Using our own car


Bouquet: My mom is going to put it together for me


Thats all for now!


UPDATE


I'm using empty Prego Sausce jars as candle holders. We're also going to fill them up with sand so that we can order smaller candles but still get the same effect as larger candles.
