when it comes to the wedding party, i would look at places like kohls and jc penny’s to find dresses for the girls. if you go through a bridal salon, youll have to rush order, but everyone’s policies are different. make sure you check into it 🙂 good luck with your planning 🙂

I have found some wonderful vases and votive holders at Goodwill. You definitely have to do a little digging, but there are some gems there. I’ve been collecting silver plates/platters for my centerpieces – paying $2-4 each, then cleaning them. They look great, and could probably be sold after the wedding, if I choose to do that.

Have you checked out 2000 Dollar Wedding? There’s a lot of inspiration there for low budget brides!
