He will be wearing a charcoal pinstripe Jones of New York suit from Mens Wharehouse.
DIY St. Florian cufflinks. We will now be using these just for photos since FI bought a shirt with buttons.
FI's gift from ebay.
In this economy I didn't want anyone to have to spend a fortune to attend our wedding, so we decided to included clothing for close family in our budget. I found this for the MOG new with tags on ebay for $35.
My wedding band
FI's wedding band, Titanium with Mother of Pearl inlay.

Yes we are using plastic! Plastic plates that look like these from BJ's. After searching for coupons, catching them on sale and using gift cards from point rewards. Total costs for all plates and cups was only $12.
Wooden flatware from EcoWare.
And chinet cups and cake plates.
Gazebo draping inspiration by Ashley Kohler Events, photo by April Smith. I found a cheap celebration canopy on ebay for the inside of the gazebo and will use window scarves for the outside. It seemed to be the cheapest way to recreate it, and I like the lighter feel for our Spring wedding.
In the middle will hang this crystal chandelier.
This is something like the look I want. If someone knows where these photos are from please tell me so I may credit them.
Since most of the guests will be under the gazebo and we will be standing right in front we will use something like this ceremony "arch" inspiration idea from Martha Stewart for our ceremony decor. I am open to suggestions anyone may have on what kind of branches to use. Or the second photo by Aaron Delesie on Style Me Pretty.
I have 20 shepherd hooks that will line the way coming up to the gazebo.
When we last visited the location the leg of my daughter's jeans got caught on the deck of the lake gazebo. So I will have to have an aisle runner to prevent my train from snagging. I am going to attempt to make a petal covered runner, but to cut back on costs I may have to have the petals in a swirl pattern. It will look something like one of these.
With a large paper flower and paper leaf (or moss) R in the middle of the runner, photo by Jeffery and Juila Woods.
Silver bride's baskets to hold programs and vintage hankies for tears of joy.
