I've been married twice. Spent $1 at a Goodwill inventory sale for my first wedding dress, $30 at Pier 1 for my second wedding dress. I had a no gifts, BYOB policy at both weddings, and while the second wedding was a five minute affair followed by Mr. Rattus going to pick up the motor home for the honeymoon and me going to a bar with my "maid of honour", the first wedding was conceded by all two hundred people who ended up attending (or just wandering in) to be the best wedding they had ever gone to. There may or may not have been photos - don't know, don't care. Both weddings, all in (including licenses), cost me a total of less than $100.
