  • believe it or not, Goodwill and other thrift stores have beautiful wedding dresses for cheap. Or you can look at David's Bridal if you have one in your area, they sometimes have $99 dollar dresses. The same for suits, your man doesnt have to have a tux, he can get a nice black suit at a thrift store. Dont worry, these things have a way of working out. My dh and I planned a blue jean wedding at the courthouse...we ended up in full Indian regalia, with fresh flower garlands and a beautiful reception, all provided by people at my is a pic
