Friends and family are so amazing... I am blessed...

Well, the wedding plans are still coming along nicely and we are getting so many things taken care of early AND, even better, we are doing this all on a fairly small budget and so far, we are staying within that budget. We are of course accomplishing this with a lot of help from friends and family. They have all been amazing and are really helping to make this a great day that we will have fond memories of, and won't look back on and feel that we overspent. We have friends who have offered us the use of their timeshare for a week for our honeymoon, so we will be going to Hawaii and won't have to pay for accommodations! Yay! My fiance's parents are giving us miles to buy our plane tickets with, another Yay! One of my bridesmaids is making our cake for us, she has done several dozen wedding cakes for other and they are beautiful. She won't let us pay her for it, so she has offered to make it as her gift to us. We are thrilled! And last but not least, we have another friend who is an officiant and she is going to do the ceremony as her gift to us. Not only are these things saving us a lot of money, they will be things that will make our day so much more special! I only hope that I can do something in return for them that will show them just how much we appreciate all they are doing for us. Any ideas? Thanks!

would you mind sharing your wedding budget, and then after the honeymoon (no rush!), telling us how you guys did with that budget?

it sounds like everyone is really pitching in to make your day special and frugal. how fabulous!!
