      Great Ideas Lisa. My wedding too was done ourselves. It was beautiful and our

      only cost was clothing, dresses for bride, bridesmaid and flower girl on sale

      and the ones we asked to be groomsmen and ushers we asked if they would be

      willing to pay 1/2 the rental cost and with a special deal with the rental place

      you can get if you go in early enough we got the groom’s and ring bearer’s

      rental free. And food was done buffet style with alot of use doing the platters

      such as finger sandwiches, hor ders, punch and a fancy sparkling cider for

      toasting. Another idea that we used is we approached other family members and

      close friends and asked that instead of gifts we told them where we had our

      wedding cake and flowers on order and if they could just contribute a payment

      of even 5.00 here and there would help. By time the wedding came around both had

      been completely paid for as gifts.

      And the craft store is a great idea. We made all our own guest gifts, table

      center pieces (candles and silk flowers),party favors, ect. Also go to some

      place such as Party City for wedding accessories such as guest book, ring

      pillow, fancy serving platters, plates and all ect. really cheap.

      We all had the greatest time !!! I love the memories !!!

      Good Luck !!!!!

      We are going through this as well at my house- except being the Groom’s parents

      we aren’t “obligated” as much as you are by tradition.
