Broke bride sells ad space on wedding dress
Cash-strapped couple looking for advertising sponsors to help fund their wedding.
Wedding aren’t cheap, but one bride isn’t letting a lack of cash stop her from walking down the aisle. Instead, Stacy Burnett and her fiancé are looking for sponsors.
The bride has agreed to offer up her wedding dress for advertising space, meaning if sold, her wedding dress would be covered in logos from the featured advertiser.
“I started planning eagerly last year but due to the economic climate it's all had to be put on hold for the foreseeable future,” Burnett, who postponed her wedding because of financial implications, tells the Daily Mail. “My fiance works full time and we have even moved in with my parents so that we can save. We want a church wedding because it's a bit more traditional, but with church fees, venue fees, catering, rings, suits, DJ even for the most basic of weddings, it just wasn't possible for us to do it this year.”

The couple is trying to save money by cutting every unnecessary expense, but they are still finding it difficult to pull over the wedding of their dreams. “We don't want a big fancy wedding but even the most basic of packages is too expensive.

We would even be willing to have any advertising for any companies that would be kind enough to help us out. We'd be willing to talk about signs on my dress and the back of suits, all we'd ask is that they could be removed for photographs.”

And this is where it goes wrong. If you're putting your wedding on hold until you can afford the one you want, sounds to me that it's the wedding, not the marriage , that's most important. I think more people get married to show off at their wedding - if they put as much effort into their actual marriage the divorce rate might not be so high.
I frankly don't understand why on earth an LGBT would want to get sucked up into this disaster we call "marriage."
Ok so you don't want a City Hall wedding - most church fees aren't that high - especially if you get married on an "off' day (try a weekday instead of Saturday) - You don't need a huge reception - have some cake and punch in your backyard. Keep it simple - you don't need to go into debt to marry the person you love. My wedding was as follows:
Simple Dress - was just an off white dress - $99
Church Fee - $50
Small cake for family - $100 (only 2 tiers)
Punch and Coffee - $20.00
Friend who was photographer - took photos as a gift and gave me the disk and copyright (I know this wont work for everyone)
Tux rental - $92.00
Some decorations and white Christmas lights in the backyard - $50.00 (had the lights anyway)
total cost - whole wedding less than $500 - It can be done!
