Daughter and stepdaughters outfits from Macy's- 87.65$ Finances outfit-did not pay anything, wore his military dress blues Photographer-free, old college roommate who majored in photography did it as a wedding present. Punch- free (to me). My Parents made their famous punch and brought antique family punch bowl, as well as ice. Flowers: white hydrangea bouquet, 32$. I curled my hair before the wedding myself. I did my own makeup. Marriage certificate- 50$ Total budgeted: 435$ Total spent: 460$ My advice to anyone who wants a budget wedding- if you belong to an organization, ask around. There are probably free/cheap venues available. We had a short afternoon ceremony and cake/punch/finger food reception which worked REALLY well for us.
