    We got married 11/13/14. Been engaged a year. Together 5 and living together 4.5 years.

    Was a nice small wedding. Didn't spend more than $1500 for EVERYTHING. 35ish people.

    Got $250 in Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards. Any suggestions?

    Also got $1300 in cash. Not sure what we're going to do with that either. Any suggestions?

    1000 thread count sheets

    put the cash back in against the 1500 you spent. it cost you $200 to get married.

    That's the way to do it. I can't see spending crazy money on a wedding. my old lady is divorced, so she already had the glitz and glam... if we get married, it's going to be in the backyard with shit on the grill. lol
