Bought the dress, a size larger than I usually wear so that I can take it in (also cause they sold out of my size). Cost:$80

Bought the veil Cost: $20

Fabulous necklace was bought out from under me while I took too long making decisions. :( Can't find anything else on Etsy that I like right now, so I'm going to wait a bit and see what new stuff comes out early next year.

Total cost of wedding to date: $200 (including venue, dress, veil, candle holders)


  1. I'd say that rocks! Nice and affordable!

  2. Yep! We're trying to keep it under $1000 including everything, and I think we will totally make it within that budget (and they have lots of money leftover to spend on things like a honeymoon!)

  3. I love it when a plan comes together! Please try the dress and hat/veil on when it arrives and post a picture!

  4. Hi Eden!

    I'm a long time lurker and really enjoy your blog... Have a question for you that I'm hoping you will answer - why are you and B getting married?

    If it's not for religious reasons, is it legal/cultural? Is it because you want to make a public (or even private) commitment to one another? If the latter, why did you decide to opt for marriage and not a commitment ceremony or some such?

    Not sure what the story is in the US, but here in Australia long-term hetero couples have the same legal rights as married couples, so there's not much of a reason to get married unless it's for religious/cultural/materialistic reasons.

    Just curious to hear your perspective... (And apologies in advance if this comment comes across as an interrogation!)

    Happy wedding planning!

  5. Thanks Eden! Don't know why I couldn't find it... :-)
