Ebay maybe?  You could also try etsy, but I think it might be more pricey on there.

Flea market!!!  You should be able to find one cheap there.

@Puppy Love:  Take a stroll to your local thrift store, garage sales are usually rife with them and if all else fails, second hand book stores…bibles can get a little pricey on the book dealer market, the older they get and the more unusal the printing….if all else fails, buy a new one, they’re like…$10 and distress to cover yourself.

Are there any used or antique bookstores in your area? I would start there.

It might be a good idea to ask first to see if there’s one in the family? It strikes me as a bit off to go looking for a vintage Bible that’s basically going to be used as a prop. ETA: It’s a wonderful gesture to use one if it’s truly meaningful, but it seems disrespectful to hunt down a Bible that *isn’t* authentically meaningful, and even more disrespectful to “distress” it to make it look a certain way because the appearance is the most important thing about it.

If you’re using it to carry the rings, your intent is to demonstrate that it’s important and valued, right? So it seems like it should be a genuinely important and valued Bible, not one that you went out and bought for cheap on Craigslist or from a used bookseller, that doesn’t actually mean anything to you.

Chances are, if you ask, someone in your (or FI’s) family will have one.
