I use Craigslist and eBay to find used stuff on the cheap.  I also check out places like Goodwill and Salvation Army.

For flowers we are ONLY getting personal flowers and I’m going to DIY the centerpieces, that was a HUGE cash saver.

DIY what you can.

Also, don’t get stuck in the mindset that you HAVE to have something for your wedding because everyone else is doing it.  So much is just extras that can be cut and no one is the wiser.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Also voting for DIY what you can, and use coupons for all your supplies! Enlist family help where you can and enjoy their work.

Future Mother-In-Law is amazing with flower arrangements. We are buying all of our flowers from San Francisco Flower Mart and reusing glass containers for the centerpieces from FSIL’s friend’s wedding.

I designed our own Save-The-Date Cards and invitations in Photoshop and sent them to OvernightPrints.com to print. We also are DIYing our programs, all signage and other paper goods.
