I just read an article in Redbook about how to get a deal on your wedding dress. It seems that, just by waiting and being patient, the author was able to get her dress on sale for only $1200.
My whole wedding cost $1200.
There were 100 people there. They all ate. And drank. And danced. They had a great time. We had a great time. We're still married. And, we're not in debt over one day.
Now, I realize that lots of girls have the means to afford a $1200 wedding dress. I just wasn't one of them. Faced with two upcoming grad school tuitions (we started school the Monday after our wedding), it was either on the cheap or at the courthouse.
So, in honor of my big day, I've put together an affordable wedding ensemble that will get you hitched without putting you in debt. I'm especially fond of the peridot and pearl necklace from Overstock...it's the one I was wearing when I got married in my parent's backyard, four years ago today.
Here comes the deals:
