The Dress
 
It all started with my dress, I found my dress "the one"! My grandmother and I went to the boutique to try the dress on when I saw the price tag my jaw dropped $4000.00, goodness that was almost the price of my wedding budget. So I went to plan B, I heart EBAY so my search began. It didn't take me long until I came upon this beauty, she was the one!!!

I paid $130.00 including taxes. This is when my vision came into play, I love the detailing around the waste. I felt the dress was a classic, it would never be dated. Then it hit me 40s vintage chic, thats it!
 
The 2nd Dress
 
It was Friends and family day at Macy's when I came up upon this gorgeous dress, only one in my size. $80.00

The Jewelry
 
I found my dream jewelry, until I called about the price $500.00 for the set. As a budget bride no way could I pay that amount. I found a vendor on esty that made jewelry, I sent her a picture of what I wanted and she said she could make something like it for me for $50.00 and made the matching bracelet for $35.00

The cake
 
When I saw this cake I knew it was the one, blinged out! I received a few quotes & did tasting $600.00 was the asking price. Goodness that's a whole lot of money, time for plan B. I went to the local grocery store and gave them a picture of my inspiration. I ordered a cake for 80 people even though we had 100 guest. This cut the price down to $156.00 and we went to Costco and bought a sheet cake for $20.00.
I Do letters including paint & diamonds $15.00
