What was yours???
Mine was the save the dates…
I purchased some flowers from Dollar Tree to make up the centerpeices, as well as some small vases from Good Will that were 4/1.00 and I was able to get 8 of them in ivory. Today I ordered my banners from Vista Print that Mike’s grandkids will carry. He does not know that the kids will be IN the wedding, so this is going to be cool. One banner says HERE COMES and the other says THE BRIDE, and our wedding date. The banner matches our save the date cards and our colors of Green/Chocolate/Ivory

@clover32512 – COLOR TWIN! 🙂 My first purchase was my dress – it wasn’t even planned, I went to David’s with a friend to look for HER dress and she made me try some on with her. I bought the second one I tried on.

My first was glass bottles for centerpieces from goodwill. I went with the mister and it before we were even engaged.
Since then it’s been a lot of craft stuff. I haven’t gotten any of the “big things” yet.

Mine was the deposit on the ceremony. The actual first tangible things were small thank you frames that will be going in the welcome bags. It was an impulse buy, but I’d rather spread the spending.

@7SEVENJ9: Gotta love a color twin. These were the first colors I came up with, then changed it for about a month, and notified everyone last week that I have changed it back. So much better, especially since I dumped the butterfly theme which was what I wanted, for a more fun fishing theme which we both love. The guys will be wearing Black Jeans/Ivory Shirts and Camo vests. The vests my fmil will be making. Mike does not know about the new theme or the camo, gotta keep some surprises for him.
My dress I also found at Davids, my fsil and I went 5 days after he proposed, and it was the 2nd dress I tried on. I am having it made with a few changes by dressilyme.com I will order that in a couple of months.

Ours was jars for the candy bar–random sizes/shapes collected from several different thrift stores. Cheap and fun to shop for!

Mine was my replica dress that I had dress regret with (I didn’t order it until 11 months after we got engaged).
If you don’t count that, then our aisle runner and paint was the first official purchase!

Mine was my garter. It was too perfect to pass up! I found it at a halloween store. It was a Police Garter… which I totaly am going to be!

I think it was a big box of seashells and a hot glue gun. I’m not sure, though–it could have been a hat box I mean to use as a card box.

I bought the boxes for my DIY card box 🙂
Oh and I had my mom, who I was with, take a picture and send it to my fiance! lol
