I didn’t want to spend much on things like my veil or shoes. I wanted my shoes to be flat and comfortable, since people probably wouldn’t be seeing them anyway. I found white satiny ballet flat slippers for $6.
I bought my veil on eBay for $17 including shipping. I now realize that I probably could have found one at Hobby Lobby for a few dollars less, and I’d suggest looking at the premade ones at craft stores first. Can you believe that veils can sell at bridal shops for $100+?
My little garter came from Hobby Lobby as well, during one of their 50 percent off sales. It was like a dollar or so.
My jewelry was my “something borrowed.” I wore my grandmother’s pearl earrings and necklace. Before those arrived, I wore borrowed diamond earrings so my ears would be pretty for pictures :)
