Do you have any friends/relatives that have been married recently? Maybe you could borrow things from them, maybe even a dress? I would defiantly ask around and see if anyone has anything to offer. Maybe a mom or aunt could make you a small cake to celebrate? If you live in the country maybe you could find wildflowers to make a small bouquet? Or visit a local farmer’s market and see what they have. That’s really nice that the photographer offered to do that for you, maybe she has some other vendor friends who would be willing to offer things as well?

The link to your venue didn’t work for me, but it sounds really nice. Just remember, the most important part is that you will be marring the love of you life! Good luck!

Do you have any friends or family that own a video camera that you can borrow? You could set it up on a tripod and then be able to share your wedding with everyone.

Wildflowers can make a beautiful bouquet and boutiniere, as well decorations!

That place looks gorgeous! You are going to have lots of fun taking pictures around all those old buildings and farm equipment.

I second the idea of wildflowers. You and your beloved could go on pre-ceremony, morning hike where you collect flowers together for your bouquet or to put in your hair. 

I think the crucial thing is to find a white cotton sundress and a pair of cowboy boots/tennis shoes so as to take advantage of that photographer and the great setting. They needn’t be at all expensive and you might be able to borroww them from friends or family. (Or http://www.couturecandy.com/interlud/cotton-voile-cami-dress-/product.html ?) 

Otherwise, splurge on a nice bottle of sparkling wine and get drunk on love. 🙂 (You can find great Italian prosecco or spanish cava for less than $20 a bottle). 

It all sounds wonderful.

Congratulations – your wedding sounds so romantic. I second the idea to obtain some flowers – wildflowers or a pre-made bouquet you can wrap ribbon around. I even saw those pearl headed florist pins for 100 for $2.99 on the internet. A long walk with your Fiance is a nice idea – maybe take a picnic of cheese and sparkling wine? Going out for a drink in a coffee shop or cute bar afterwards with just your new *husband* would be sweet. You could play special CDs or wedding themed music while you get ready, like "Going to the Chapel." Writing each other a letter or card you could read either before or after the wedding would help make the day special. I completely agree with you that the two of you should make this day special as it’s your wedding day! Enjoy it and I’m so glad to hear that the two of you are getting married in September and are fortunate enough to have a photographer.

If you can’t afford a bouquet, you can still carry something special down the aisle. Maybe a small bible (if you are religious) or a handkerchief that you could embroider with your initial?

And you can make a veil for about $5 – the tulle is very cheap and you can attach it to a comb you already own.

you can always pick up a bouquet from the local grocery store, if you don’t want to make it. if you don’t tell them it’s a wedding, you can probably pick it up the day of and it won’t be priced at a premium.

there are lots of websites that sell veils for a discount over what you find in the stores (or check the wedding bee classifieds!)

have a meal of your favorite foods (or a replica of the first meal you had together?) or a bottle of sparkling wine? that’s always festive!

bring an ipod and dance with him in the woods – so what if it’s just th 2 of you, it’ll be your moment always!
