- Wedding: February 2013
Planning a wedding on a budget can be super stressful, but it can definitely be a lot of fun when you find great deals! I made a goal to purchase all of my wedding accessories for under $100 (hair comb/headband, earrings, shoes, and bracelet).
First up is my dress from PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com. (I’ve shown it here before but I don’t think I used these pics):

My accessories that I got for $65! (See below for details):
At first, I wanted some fabulous purple heels, but I didn’t want the color to compete with the beading on my dress. So I stalked far and wide (thank you, Shopstyle.com!) for a great pair of Ivory high heels (4+ inches) for under $80. I had been looking at this pair for months, but there was always something…off about them. But I’m so happy I took the plunge! They look so much better in person and are actually not that uncomfortable.

Got from my local department store called Belk. They were on a clearance rack for 50% off and ended up being $13!!! The brand is called New Directions. Perhaps you can find them in a store near you!
And finally, my bracelet:
I had been stalking those pretty, rhinestone and crystal cuff bracelets on Etsy and beyond for months but didn’t want to spend more than $40. Luckily, I found a beautiful one on Ebay for $17!
Here is a stock photo:
And me wearing it:
I was soooo surprised at the quality for under $20! They also carry hair combs, earrings, and necklaces. Here is the seller info if you are interested: http://myworld.ebay.com/faship/?_trksid=p4340.l2559
So this brings my entire wedding outfit to:
DRESS $350 + $18 shipping + BRACELET $17 + SHOES $35 + EARRINGS $13 = $433!
