I got my dress form a friend. It was used. I paid $30 for it and the veil together. I put about $25-35 into satin roses, pearls, and sequins for the dress and also bought a new headpiece for the veil (she'd used a comb, and I detatched the veil and put it on a clip instead). So, all in all, about $50-60.

My pastor's wife made my bouquet at a gift to me. I made the bridesmaids bouquets. They were probably about $5 each, because I got most of the flowers on clearance. We put about another $50 into flowers for decorations and corsages, bouteneires (however you spell it) and other things.

Pictures--A friend took my bridal portraits. So, all I had to pay for was the film and developing. That was about $40. Then we had DH's friend's wife take our wedding pictures. The developing of the film was about $50, although I don't remember how much we actually paid for the film, or if that's something she bought for herself.

Our cake was $75. A friend of ours recommeded a lady to do it for us. She first told us $100. The one I wanted was very simple, and after I showed it to her, she changed her mind and said $75.

Wedding Dress? It was about $75 in alterations and having the veil made (I wore my moms dress but my own veil.)

Flowers? Well MIL was supposed to make them and then less than a month before tells me she isnt going to have time so she gave me $100 towards the flowers. It wa VERY DIFFICULT to get flowers so short notice. But they ended up costing around $500

Pictures? $1600 but we wont go there - it was an awful experience.

Cake? About $300 I went to a new bakery in town. It was very good but not set up how I asked. However we had a DQ machine set up there. went way over bigger than the cake I have over 1/2 the cake left!

Dress--about $50 from the outlet mall in Las Vegas

Flowers-none

Pictures-about $50 They took a roll of film and sent it home with us so we had to get it developed ourselves

Cake-none Although we did spend a lot on chocolate covered strawberries & whipped cream once we got back to our room

Tip for the "minister" performing the ceremony--$40 How many of y'all had to do that?

My shoes were the most expensive and were about $100 from the outlet mall. Are ya shocked?
