    Depending on timing, leaves, fall fruits and vegetables are a cheap

    solutions to centerpieces. Fake wedding cake, styrofoam "cake" with a

    spot cut out and filled with cake for the cake cut, covered in icing

    and decorated. Then use sheet cake in for guests or cupcakes. I have

    also seen donuts used and it is much cheaper then fancy cake (if you

    know anyone good at cake decorating here is a good place to save

    money.) Also thrift stores, we are planning my sister-in-laws wedding

    (on no budget) and we found a box of candle holders for $5. And garage

    sales, if you know anyone a least bit crafty, you can find all kinds of

    stuff to use for a wedding. Also try your local freecycle. It is a

    website dedicated to those who want to keep stuff out of landfills and

    you can post what you are looking for and if anyone has anything they

    offer it if you come pick it up. You need to read the rules and

    regulations for each group to make sure you comply but I have been

    blessed with our local groups, these people are very generous and

    giving. Hope this helps,

    Also think about having your wedding and reception at someone's home or a nice restuarant as opposed to church wedding with all the bells and whistles. Invite only a small amount of people or think about having your wedding and reception in your local park. Ask friends or family to help with decorations, baloons and streammers on trees. Also try theknot.com for ideas. It helped me.

    Default Budget Wedding HELP!!!! please



    when I got married we had a wedding at a church and did our own flowers(fake). I had the reception at a small well decorated( for Christmas) family owned restaurant that didn't cost more then $10 a person. We had a home made cake with a keepsake topper(cherished teddies). For gifts we gave glass ordainments that my sister added our named and the wedding dates to in gold lettering(.20 each). We had the guest pay for alcohol since it was a lunch( cheaper for wedding budgets to do a lunch since a night one would have to include a night tine snack). I bought my dress for a consignment store and it wasn't white. I look like a giant marshmallow in white! I chose a nice Burgundy(Christmas color) dress with long gloves and a cape really pretty. We had a relative who was good at picture taking to take our pictures( what a nice gift!)Choose a cheap theme and allow every thing to fall into place.

    Hi Mary: It sounds like it can be just wonderful. How many people will

    attend? Will it be in a church or elsewhere? For fall you can use fall

    flowers and leaves, I was thinking about fall food such as pumpkin,

    squash etc. and how about fall fruit, apples, apple cider. You could

    have a nice home made fruit cake with fall type decorations. What about

    a fall harvest theme.



    If there will be a lot of guests attending, but more relaxed, how about

    a pot luck dinner. I went to a wedding like that once and it was great.

    That would depend on who the guests are etc. though as you don't want

    to offend anyone, but your own family and close friends would probably

    be ecstatic to help out that way.



    If you haven't chosen the rings yet, how about something antique; his

    mom's ring; or your grandmother's. This is a great topic, I wish I

    could be there.



    Linda

    I planned a wedding on a budget and spent less than $1000.00 What you can do is

    go to your craft stores and search for the flowers that you want. or If the

    craft stores has a website get on it and search for discounts. I was able to

    find clear vases for 25 cents at WalMart and found 12 bunches of flowers for

    $1.79 a bunch. and clear pebbles for $2.50 per bag I put the flowers in the vase

    and the pebbles. I added color to the vase by adding a napkin which were colors

    of the flowers. I borrowed a trellis from my mothers garden and decorated with

    tooling which was aboout $5. All of our clothes were bought on sale and I

    bought all of my attendants and shirts for the men. They were caught on sale

    cheap. We were married at a friends house that was on the lake. Paid the JP. The

    most expensive thing that I paid for was the food. Each attendant received a

    gift which was a jewelry box which were about $5 each. Figure out what colors

    you want and what you

    want and must haves. Any questions please feel free to ask.

    Hi Mary,



    I'm new to the group. This is my first post and I'm very excited about

    being here and getting money saving tips!



    My boyfriend and I are "eloping". We hired a wedding officiant at

    www.blueridgeweddings.com. We're getting married on the beach. It's

    going to be so nice, and VERY cheap! Check out her portfolio of

    pictures.
