- Wedding: October 2010
so i wanted to share some great news and inspiration for budget brides that wonder how they can save money, and still have nice wedding things
today has been a great day.
i bought my slip and bra from a newlywed on craigslist for $40 total. buying from the bridal shop would have been $110.
then i went to craftwarehouse to look for paper to dress up my invites , they were having a big sale 40% of one item, 20% off everything else. i ended up getting 135 sheets of paper in the right colors/size for $12. the cashier was not good at her job, and under charged by 10 sheets.
i also got spools of ribbon, 25yards for $0.80 each after discount.
i came home and did the math, my invitations are going to cost about .50 each! (not including postage) you can get more details on my invitation cost/design on my blog here
i also got some gorgeous crystal beaded braceletts for my 4 bridesmaids for $1.65 each. they were originally $3 each, but 1 was 45% off (instead of the 40% the checker did the transaction wrong and over corrected it) and the other 2 were 20% off. and the cashier didnt charge me for 1 of them. i did NOT realize until i got home that she made so many mistakes, or i would have corrected her, i believe in good kharma.
