The decision had already been made to elope. My vision was classic, vintage and chic. What better way to accomplish these goals but to go to the thrift store!!! I chose to focus on Goodwill and the craft stores to achieve the look I wanted on a limited budget.
I envisioned a pencil skirt in winter white and/or cream. While perusing Goodwill, I found exactly what I was looking for. I literally screamed 'Shut Up!' when I pulled it off the rack. The woman beside me was laughing at me. LOL! The ticket price was $19.99 for a two-piece skirt suit! I got to the register and the price was $10! I paid ten dollars for my wedding suit, yall! Win!
I realized that the skirt did not fit in that lovely pencil skirt way, so I took it to a local seamstress who altered it perfectly! Because of my quick turnaround time and because the skirt was constructed so well, the fee was $35.
So, the total cost of my wedding suit was $45.
Now, this is where the budget got pushed a bit. I went to DSW and as usual, walked straight to the clearance rack. Guess what?!?! The leopard print shoes I wanted were right there!!! The texture was actually furry. I was hooked.
I paid approximately $35 for my shoes.
