I have been to some beautiful weddings, which I'm sure cost a pretty penny. I just don't understand why people would go in debt (sometimes many years worth) to pay for a wedding. My daughter's wedding was nice but not fancy. She had a really pretty (used once) dress that someone gave (or loaned) her. Family and friends decorated the little fellowship hall of the church where they were married. The biggest expense was the caterer and the cake, and I don't think they were much (someone else paid for them).

James and I were married (5 years ago this month--the 21st) in a little local chapel. The judge who married us charged $50 but said we didn't have to pay (we suspect James's boss at the time might have paid it--he was a friend of the judge). Our pastor and his wife were there as guests, and she took pictures for us (with our camera). I made my "wedding" dress (a regular dress of white fabric with a tiny red print--I finished hemming it that day during a break at work!). After the wedding (which was at 6:00 p.m.) we went to a Mexican restaurant with a few of the friends who had come. My friend Sandee had made a sheet cake. We all had some after our meal, and we brought the rest of it to Myrtle Beach with us.

Not money related, but one of the best memories I have of our wedding was that even though my daughter couldn't be there for it, she was still there in a way. We called her and the phone sat on the altar during the ceremony!

i got married on 7-7-07.
we spent quite a lot, about 30.000 $ (less in euro).
it's a lot, not really a low budget, but we just had home and everything because we were yet living together, no need of a new car or anything else so we decided to have a beautiful party with all our friends and relatives.
to tell the truth we didin't spend a lot in clothes or cars or anything, the only things we care was catering (it was more than perfect) the location and music.
as favour we made a donation to a local society which take care of terminal cancer persons and it was more appreciated than everything else.
i loved my wedding, it was a dream but it's not the budget the thing that make different.
if we had less money we had a more little party, no matter, just love

We did the donation thing as our favors as well pavellina. We made a sizable donation to the Jimmy Fund. Each guest got a very nice card saying a donation had been made in their name.

Very, very pretty. Your bouquet is lovely. Real or silk?

It was real. I just went to Hobby Lobby and picked out flowers and colors I liked (with their fake flowers) and took it to the grocery store we went to, and they did the best they could to copy it with real flowers. I was very impressed.

November. No particular reason why.. He proposed the day after Valentines Day, while I was still in cosmetology school. I knew I wanted to wait until I graduated, So I just planned it for a month after my graduation date. We had a cold wedding and a cold honeymoon!! We went to Colorado for a week. I told him on our 10 year wedding anneversary (if we can) I'd like to go to Hawaii!!!!!!!!
