your dress for FREE and do some alterations and add ons if you like.
Try Craigslist or Freecycle for free wedding dresses. Or try a

several wedding dresses and they are all under $25.

that has the art of arranging silk flowers and go with that. You
could also look online for silk flower arrangement with

flowers for your wedding. Family normally like to be a part of
Also, post a Want on your local Freecycle / Craiglist for wedding
decorations or anything related to wedding items. You may find
someone who have the items you need and never used them or they look

location,minister and the cake. How about a pot-luck style
reception. Do you have some friends who can really cook and make the
dishes look like it was a professional who did it? Get them to help.
