I recently had the opportunity to go to a fancy wedding boutique and try on some amazing dresses. While the experience was spectacular and having found (as of right now) “the dress”, the price tag was a bit of a shocker… a $9000.00 shocker! Being on a tight budget, $9000.00 is just not doable.

In a year-and-a-half I will marry my best friend of over six years (Rashad), and I am planning the majority of my wedding online.
By doing so I take advantage of new internet tools and “go green” at the same time - and I will share what I find with you.
Right now I am using The Knot (www.theknot.com) for the core of my planning. The site was founded in 1996 as a modern answer to the “white-gloved, outdated” etiquette experts favored by previous generations. …
