well to get started i dont have a job,and i am a full time student I have been watching all the wedding shows on t.v. for the entire 6yrs. w/ my fh. I knew i wanted a classy wedding representing me, however i did'nt have the money so I started at my favorite store the dollar tree, and bought as many supplies, candles, anything i could purchase that was only a dollar, then i went to David's bridal for my dress, and bought one of those 99$ dresses they always run small so i paid the extra 150$ to put a corset in it, next i could'nt afford the shoes that i wanted so i purchased some from david's bridal and bought a pair of earrings, removed the back and glued them to my shoes. i wholesale shopped for my favors at dollar days, an online liquidation sale, also, i made many diy projects in particular monogrammed initials to hang at the ceremony heres what i did to make it more affordable. 


well i printed off initials in a normal size and french script font took it to kinkos, and let them enlarge them to my desired size, it cost me 8.00 for 3 initials then i bought 3 poster boards from dollar tree the thick ones, traced the letter with a sharpy then carved out with a knife, then i did the other two remaining, and glued all of them together, let them dry a few min. then i covered w/ damask tape ,sliced a hole at the top of letter and slipped a ribbon through it.

ju06 i also made this for my parasol umbrellas to take pics with it. heres what i did materials: sharpy marker black, scissors, tape, First i printed the wording in french script font ,and 650 size. then i cut all the words off the paper, then i taped them to the parasol(with just a little tape) then i traced it with the sharpy, and colored it with the sharpy just stay in the lines, im really not that crafty but i am very frugal, managed to saved my $$$ for something else. thank god (12 for 29.00) at oriental trading co......$5.00 for 1 at hobby lobby i had to post these two ladies b/c they worked so hard on the wedding that day
