When planning a wedding, watch the paper for auctions of floral shops, bridal shops, etc. My daughter and I did this and found a florist who's business was being auctioned off. We got the flowers, lace, ribbons, guest book, etc. all well under cost. We saved a lot, not only by getting the deal on things this way, but also by doing the decorating ourselves.
BiddingBride.com is a new site where brides can bid on wedding related items and services. Vendors and Just Married couples post auctions. The site also accepts "dutch auctions" where you can just post a fixed price that you want for your item - and avoid the whole bidding process.
