I recently got married (6 months today), and we did
our wedding very inexpensively. 1st, we got marriedat the same church we are members of, so there was no
church rental fee. We did have to rent the Veteran’s
Hall for the reception, as there was not room in thechurch’s basement (it is cut up into classrooms, with
no one room large enough to lay out the food). My
dress was bought from a discontinued designer.Original price was $1500…I paid $300, including
alterations. My bridesmaids dresses were ordered from
a Newport News catalog, $30 each. I found the flowergirls dress at a Thrift store for $12. Tuxes were
about regular price, but there wasn’t much we could do
there, I wanted a formal wedding with all the men intuxes.
For a theme, I chose an autumn theme. This is
something that is currently in my home decoratingscheme, as I love the fall colors. The majority of
the decorations came out of my home, and what few
items we did purchase are now lovingly displayed inour home, instead of packed in a box somewhere.
Food: My aunt is a caterer, and did everything at
cost. For around $200, we fed our 75 guests punch,sodas, finger sandwiches of ham and turkey salad,
fruit salad, veggie tray, cheese tray, chips and dip,
and a beautiful 6 tier wedding cake, each layer was adifferent flavor.
Music: We made copies of our favorite songs on CD’s
and played during the ceremony and at the reception.If you have one near you, check out the dollar tree
and the dollar mart. I found our ring bearer’s
pillow, bridal party gifts, and many other things attheses two places.
