- Wedding: November 2010
I am really proud of some of the deals i found for my wedding. Among them were–
300 for cake that feeds 400 people.
Favors at .25 apiece– they were oriental fans that had a custom tag that also served as escort cards.
in my culture, we have to change dresses during the wedding– so my wedding dress was $130 including alterations, my second dress was $400 including alterations, chinese dress was $30 and my ball gown was $140. I only spent $700 for four dresses.
Programs were $140 for 500– had my graphic designer design them to fit on an 8.5×11 page and then went to a local printer to have them printed
invites where handmade custom pocketfolds with ribbon and 3 enclosure cards– got that for $2.25 apiece.
my half eternity wedding band came out to $125 for .5 carats of diamonds and 14k white gold– we went to the la jewelry district to a place we know and trust.
my 10 course chinese banquet at a reconverted mission came out to $50 a head.
bridesmaid dresses at $21.95 apiece
things i did splurge on
spanx + other shapewear from nordstrom
compression, seamless panties from bloomies
silver tom’s shoes to wear during the garter toss
a smaller coach bag to use as my wedding purse– i loved it because it fit my ipad! (yes, i had my ipad on my wedding day– it was our “dj”)
diamond hoop earrings from macy’s for $100 for wedding day
what about you all? what were your bargains? did you splurge on anything?
