I've discovered a few things about weddings that I can share:
1. Make your own bridal veil. I bought a very plain one and altered it to what she wanted. For what I paid, I could have bought a whole bolt of bridal tulle & comb and still gone out to dinner. Before you buy, check out what they have, you'll be stunned. Anyone with basic crafting skills can make a simple veil and save money. The ones I saw had laces hot glued on, no edgings and huge whip stitches holding the tulle to to comb.
2. Wear comfortable shoes! I balked at the last minute and didn't wear the high heels I was planning on. Instead I dug an old pair out of the back of the closet & they ended up in the trash can outside the hotel. I kicked them off 30 seconds after the ceremony, jammed them back on my feet to walk into the reception and then they spent the rest of the night under the table. I now sport HUGE bandaides that cover up HOLES in my heels.
