Wedding Dress For Happy Couple in Love

Wedding Dress For Happy Couple in Love (Photo credit:

Weddings are usually expensive, but a couple from Scotland has proven that you can get married on a tight budget.  Georgina Porteous and Sid Innes spent only £1 on their big day.  They didn’t have to pay for the venue, a barn behind their house.  An aunt made the cake and the guests brought their own picnic.  The groom wore a suit he had bought years before and the bride bought her second-hand vintage dress online for a pound. Even the rings were free: they were hand-made from antlers found in the garden.  The couple chose this type of wedding as part of a self-sufficient life-style.  It was a huge saving if you consider that the average wedding in Britain costs £20,000.
