Best Wedding Stuff - 2005
Sure, you can pay $100 for a ready-made veil or $500 to have your invitations printed. And if you have $600 just burning a hole in your pocket, send it immediately to us c/o our P.O. box. Didn't think so. Your frugality--er, your appreciation of good value--will lead you to Michael's, yep, the big-box craft store, where a creative bride can find most anything to fashion the accessories for her wedding. We made our own veil with five yards of tulle ($9.99) and a package of plastic combs ($2.69) in about 30 minutes. Then, not only did we have a veil, but bragging rights ("Hey, I'm a DIY bride!") and an extra $88 to spend on, like, maybe something we'll wear more than once.
