    depending on how much you want to do yourself and how good you are at baking you can bake your own cake (or cupcakes) ( you can pay someone else to decorate if that part makes you nervous ). My mother & I baked my six layer wedding cake from scratch - it is a great memory I cherish today 24 1/2 years later and we saved over $600 doing it ourselves !
    PS - You can rent the pans cheap if you have no one to borrow them from .( maybe buy at the craft stores or Ebay ??)

    We also used seasonal plants - since our wedding was late November we got mistletoe & limbs of holly from the forest & "trashed" christmas tree limbs from tree lots wrapped them with metallic ribbons & beaded garland; the church had some holiday decorations & flowers already .
    I carried orchids grown by my mother made up into a bouquet by a florist for under $5 ( savings of another $350 !).

    GOOD LUCK and LONG Marriage Wishes to YOU !

    I got married less than 2 years ago. I would highly suggest that you think about going to Bridal Mart in Burlington for the wedding gown/bridal party gowns. Very reasonably priced and they also do price matching. If you want a list of my vendors (I also did a very reasonable wedding) then you can email me at

    mimi harley - thanks for the heads up on the FL deal on M&M's, hope to find those on sale tomorrow when I drop in at my local store to pick up something else :) They're great to freeze for use in baking cookies, cakes and such!

    Hope they have them on clearance too :)
