I understand budgets but.....

There is a girl I went to high school with on my facebook page who posted she went to good will and found her wedding dress for $4.99, but it had the color of the day tag so it was half off and she got to use her discount card, then she said she is going to the dollar store to get fake flowers to make her boquet and that she's going to ask her guests to bring a dish for the reception.  I told FI that there are just some things you don't need to put on facebook...LOL!!!

    If you get invited, we demand photos!

    OK, the dress and flowers are her thing, but if I got invited to a wedding where I had to bring a covered dish?!?!?  She should at least invest in a cheap caterer with all the money she saved on her dress and flowers!

    I mean, don't get me wrong, I totally understand having a budget and stuff, but come on, they've both been married before so if you are in that much of a financial low, just go to the JP.  She doesn't seem to care what people think so I'm sure she'll post photos, the "wedding" is May 1st, so I will copy them for you all to see.

    Yeah, the JP would be the way to go.

    I'm all about keeping a budget and I'm damn proud of saving money where I can.....but you don't need to share all of your cost saving tips, somethings are better left unsaid ;o)

    Hahaha...Beth...yes it's shocking...but I heard something like that when I was watching Rich Bride, Poor Bride on cable. The girl had a $15000 budget and asked her guests to bring food. She and her family took care of appetizers by buying frozen food the catering hall can heat up/bake like corn dogs, buffalo wings, etc. I was nervous for the girl as to what her final wedding would look like!
