My recent wedding purchases

Today I'd like to showcase my most recent wedding purchases...shopping rules: - 1st rule is: it has to be reasonably cheap - 2nd rule: it should be vintage/old - 3rd rule: it has to be cute...obviously! haha - Now this won't be everyone's go to list, but it works for me and I've been finding some INCREDIBLE deals! Coming from someone who originally had a $20,000 wedding planned and cancelled the whole thing, it feels great attempting to make this a $5,000 wedding! If you learn anything from this blog, it's be about the budget! Even if you don't HAVE to stick to one why spend more money than you have too?....here I go getting chatty again...off to the pictures! tell me what you think!

What Andrew will wear: 1970s Grey Wool 3 Piece Suit + an extra red vest- $87 (shipping included) - He won't wear the jacket just a button down, vest, tie, and pants...cute!
