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.

Yay bargain hunting, those are some smoking deals!

Centerpieces made from dollarama and Ikea, for me.

Shopped around for ages for flowers and got a much better price, after I was considering no flowers!

Did table runners, giant swag behind the ceremony site and head table swag for $30, with fabric from Fabricland.

 

Hair and makeup for 4 of us, plus makeup for my mom – $315 total.

Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses for $90 each – they were marked 50% off the original price

Cupcakes (which we’re having instead of wedding cake) for just the price of supplies, one of my awesome BMs is baking them as it’s a hobby of hers and she’s quite good at it!

Big silver candle holders for about $15 each that were on clearance

Had a coupon from Michael’s and got two boxes of DIY invitations for 40% off each
