    My mom got the plates- almost 100 for $6.50!
    We are still onthe lookout for more, and silverware too!

    Now our caterer came back with a quote of only $10 a head!  We will atleast stay in budget there :)

    I made my table numbers with a ton of super cheap picture frames from IKEA ($2 for a pack of 3, and I bought 5 packs). Including the paint, each cost me about $1.60

    Great deals! I found these cube votive holders that will work as part of my centerpiece. All I need now are lime slices and candles. Efavormart has them for $4.99 each. I found someone on CL selling them and  I got 56 of them for $70 inc shipping. Thats $1.25 each.

    We found diy invites at Michaels for $25 for 50 and got a 40% off coupon so we'll get the last 50 invites for around $15.

    And of course thanks to Vistaprint groupons I've only spent $60 on 80 STDs and 80 Invites (the $60 includes shipping). I know more than that will be spent on stamps, lol!

    we kncoked $300 off our photobooth rental by renting during a bridal show.
    We're getting free cermeony music from our DJ who is a friend of mine.
    Our 2nd florist proposal was WAAAAY cheaper than the first one, but since we had the money waiting to be spent, we increased the flowers to make up some of that cost.
    I got 30 handkerchiefs for $20 yesterday (Normally $3-5 per hankie in antique stores)
    We had $450 budgeted for dish rentals/purchases, but I just found a place that I can rent all that we need for $121.
    My friend just offered to do hair/makeup for me and my MOH for free!

    Can't think of what else.

    I've posted this before, but I'm decorating mostly with ceramic lanterns that I got from my company for free (pinterest links:  http://pinterest.com/pin/38913984250605594/http://pinterest.com/pin/38913984250170290/)

    We had a container come in that had a lot of the white ones with compliance issues that ment we couldn't ship them out.  I was trying to come up with a way to not do flower centerpeices, so this was perfect!

    Got my STDs for about 50.00 (magnets!) including shipping with an awesome vistprint groupon!

    Found vases at the dollar store. I will use them for the head table's bouquets. Florist wanted to charge me $35 to RENT them - I bought all 6 for only $6! Steal!

    Also found photo frames at the dollar store for table numbers, and got 100+ square votive holders from some friends who just got married.
