It is getting harder to tell what is real and what isn't these days with all of the "make your own" fake photo sites out there. They are fun to play with - I think the fake church signs are my favorites.
I think the fact that it was your wedding that you were scrapping is the reason it took so long. It's a really important occasion and you want to make it the best you can. I'm going through the same thing right now with my sister's wedding. I'm in charge of doing her scrapbook and I can't seem to get started. I think I'm just overwhelmed. BTW - I've never done my own wedding and we're going on 13 years. You've got me beat. :o)
Coupons do take time and effort and in my case, are either forgotten at home or there is another brand that is still cheaper than the coupon price. There are a few coupons that are worth the effort though. Bed Bath & Beyond sends coupons to the house regularly for 20% off and the Sunday paper has the coupons for Michael's and Jo Ann's. Gotta have those!
