Our wedding cost about the same as yours ($200 or less)and I wouldn't have changed a thing. We will be celebrating 31 years of marriage on September 15th (Our daughter was married on September 3rd and our son's wedding date is set for September 12th). We spent a lot more than that on our daughter's wedding but I did manage to save alot by making all the table cloths and doing all the decorating and flowers. Thanks for sharing this link and I will pass it on to Morgan, my soon to be daughter-in-law. She is a very thrifty young lady and I am sure she will enjoy finding ways to save. I hope your family has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

My stepdaughter is getting married in January, 2010! I think she is doing good about being on a budget, but weddings are expensive anyway!

WOW! You did really well with that, Alexandra! Where did you find your dress?

That sounds like a blog post in itself! With pics, of course! {g}

I was happy to find this post by Deputyheadmistress. I've been following her blog off and on for years, and I know she is very frugal. Glad to pass it along. :)

Dorothy, I had a formal dress on hand, so the most of the cost was for the honeymoon night at an elegant European style hotel in the old town section of Alexandria. Va. My friends pitched in with flowers, video, and a cake on my best friend's mother's home. The marriage was a simple civil ceremony; we got married later in the tiny chapel room at our church.
