    Weddings are unnecessarily expensive! I found myself nodding along as I read this because I did a lot of the same things. A couple themes when it came to saving money on my wedding were making what I could (veil, flowers, decorations, etc) and borrowing things (pew bows, crinoline, other decorations, etc). Doing a little research and price shopping for things that need to be bought can go a very long way!

    Some good tips but I must say anyone willing to completely overhaul a wedding gown from a size 12 down to a size 4 at under $100 is not making a profit. I’d say she was doing it more out of the kindness of her heart. That is a LOT of work and I’m sure took a long time to cut down a dress and remake it. But good you found someone willing to do it for that cheap. And by the way, the reverse would be extremely hard if not impossible…to go from a size 4 up to a size 12. Not enough fabric unless the dress were shortened to get extra fabric or a perfect match was found of fabric. Best to find a dress close to the bride’s size. Just speaking from a seamstress mind. 😉
