Who wants to spend $50 OR MORE for a unity candle set?! Not me! I went to Walmart, Michaels, and Joannes and bought two vanilla taper candles, a vanilla pillar candle, a glass candle stands, black damask ribbon and pre-tied black satin bows. Voila! My own, cost effective unity candle set that was SO EASY to make! (ignore all the clutter on the table - a lot of crafting was being done that night!)

The Card Box photo 1

I saw these card boxes on www.etsy.com and figured I could make a similar card box on my own for half the price. I purchased  fabric, glue, faux flowers and boxes at A.C. Moore and Joann Fabrics and created this...

Sticking with the black, ivory and red theme - I purchased 100 favor boxes from www.target.com ($45 total - cheaper than the same ones on other wedding sites) and Lindt Lindor Truffles in milk chocolate (with red wrappers!) from BJ's Wholesale Club (I got 135 truffles for $33). My MOH came over to assemble the favors and all-in-all it took just under 2 hours. It probably would have been quicker if we (a)stopped talking or (b) were not drinking wine!

I chose roses for my wedding because of the INCREDIBLE DEAL I got from Wegmans! I found out through a relative that Wegman's sold wholesale roses. So, I immediately made an appointment and ordered 18 dozen roses for the low low low price of $198 TOTAL! I am taking the day before the wedding off from work, and my mother and MOH are coming over to help assemble the bouquets and bouttonieres. If you have the time I would definitely recommend going this route - you will save SO much money and it is really easy to do.

My bouquet is going to consist of 24 red roses

My Maid-of-Honor and Matron-of-Honor will each carry 12 roses, half red and half cream

My Bridesmaids will carry 12 cream roses

A bakery in Williamsville called Village Desserts hosts a tasting every year in which they offer $99 wedding cakes! I was sketical at first and was sure the cakes would only feed 20 people OR they would be hideous OR there would be sneaky hidden fees to inflate the price. I was wrong.

On a Tuesday night in February my mother and I went to the tasting and ordered a fabulous white cake with Raspberry filling and white frosting that will feed 100 guests. The cost was $99 total! No hidden fees and they are delivering it to my reception site and setting it up! The 2 things that I did have to but extra was the black grossgrain ribbon to encircle the tiers ($3 at Joanne's) and red roses for the topper ($10 at Wegmans). My cake will look exactly like this one except the ribbon will be black and the topper will be red roses.
