Just curious to see what kind of deals everyone else has found on this wild adventure! (:
I myself bought our bridesmaid’s dresses for………….DUN DUN DUN……………….. $11.00 a peice!! Yeah, that’s right! lol.
And let me tell you, it was pretty good quality!! They all loved them!
I got our centerpeices and parts for the centerpeices at the dollar store.. oh yeah!
That’s all I’ve got right now as far as good deals go. 😛

@misschickpea: That’s awesome!
I’m getting my dress from a discount store online, $300.
Our venue is a restored historic bar in town and FI’s great-grandpa used to own it… we’re getting for $600. (the bar is now a reception hall with kitchen and bar also. lol.)

I got my chargers on sale for $.53 for 1. I had some $15 dollar off a $15 dollar purchase coupons so I got some free stuff from Micheals that way. By far the best deal I have gotten so far was when my venue quoted me the wrong price for the venue. They gave me the Sunday 4hr price instead of the reception price and when they realized it they still let me have it for the wrong price!! I didn’t have to beg or cry or anything. The guy just said that it was his mistake so he won’t go back on his word. If it was the reception price I wouldn’t have been able to afford it. Yay!!

I got my reception dress which is a designer wedding gown sheath from Nordstrom’s Last Chance store for $14 and negotiated a little over a $1000 off my photographer/videographer. I bought my BMs dresses for $50 on cybermonday from J.Crew, normally $225. =)

@Brenut22: Thanks. I swear I’m becoming a negotiating junkie. The thrill I get after I bargain is superhigh even if I only got $5 off. lol.

@cherylbutch: Walmart baby! (: ha. I only looked there because I ordered a dress for my fiancee’s brother’s graduation last may and LOVED it so I figured it’d be good quality and it definitely was!
