    I made the bouquets from cardstock. It is a very, very inexpensive and quite unique.

    • Tia says:

      Do you have any pictures or info on how to do this?

      • Smiley says:

        I used this tutorial. I think my best flowers are the ones I used two pieces of paper.

        A fun wedding site is Offbeat brides. Tons of different ideas/ways to make paper flowers.

      • Smiley says:

        I used Jones Design Company tutorial. My best flowers were the ones using two pieces of paper.

        If you look at Off Beat Brides you’ll find a lot of different ways to make flower bouquets.

  10. Brittany Ingram says:

    1-800-registry is giving away free wedding planners. It took mine 3 days to arrive. Love it! Go to the website and there will be a link to orders your free!

  11. Jacinda Elliott says:

    I just ordered from the Canvas People. Shipping was a bit much at $18.00, but it’s well worth the 11×14 canvas photo I got for my honey! :) Thanks for posting!

  12. Atalie says:

    I found this awesome website with cheap silk and velvet flowers, tulle, napkins and table cloths, and practically anything else you can think of!

  13. Carol says:

    My daughter is getting married 11-11-11! We are planning a bridal shower tea for her. If anyone has any ideas, hints, or attended a tea and remembers something wonderful we can do to make it a happy afternoon, please let me know! I enjoy reading all the frugal projects and look forward to your help!! Thank you! Carol

  14. Laura says:

    I was a Marine Bride and when I found out about Church street Bridal I was amazed and thought about how many Brides could benefit from a place where Kleinfeld gowns are sold for extremely affordable prices. Please check out their blog. The proceeds go to support the YWCA and their goal to eliminate racism and empower women.

  15. Niki says:

    I’m getting married next August. My mom LOVES your site, and she told me about the free save the dates you were advertising on here. My fiancee and I each ordered the maximum 100 (perfect since we are inviting 200 people). They just came in, and they are beautiful!! Thank you so much. We are both just starting out in our careers and trying to save as much money as we can, and your advice is so helpful. I’ll be checking this website a LOT in the coming months.

    • Heidi says:

      Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, Niki! I’m so glad your ‘Save the Dates’ turned out so beautiful! ;)

      ~ Heidi

  16. Julia says:

    I was wondering if anyone knew about the free Save the Date Vistaprint magnets, the link doesn’t work, are they gone???

  17. Lynnzy says:

    If your planning a wedding (which im doing and finding to be very expensive) there’s alot of things you can do to save money the one big one im doing is the flowers. At A.C Moore they will make your bouquets and everything for you and all you have to pay is for the supplies, well one thing to do is right now a.c Moore is having 50% all of there flowers and other things so this would be a great time to do it. I was able to get my flowers for everybody ( i have 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsman and mothers and fathers) I was able to get all my bouquets and mens flowers for just about $60 FOR all of them great deal so check out A.C Moore it would be a great way to save a ton of money.

  18. Elaine says:

    I am wondering if you know of any place I could buy a cake topper in the shape of a camper for my sister – in – law who’s getting married on April 7, 2012? If you know of any where could u email me, or post something. Thanks.

  19. Monica says:

    I tried ordering the 100 free ‘Save the Date’ postcards that you mention on your website and they’re charging me for them. I followed everything on your list. What should I do now?
