Money Saving tip

* Consider cutting back on how many attendants you plan to have in the wedding party. You will save a ton on flowers and boutonnieres and gifts for the group too!

New Ideas

Ribbons ribbons everywhere. Ribbons are a great way to inexpensively dress up everything from plain reception chairs to a diy wedding cake. Use ribbons like a tablecloth to dress up the head table or all of your recpetion tables. Hang them like curtains to make a dull room simply gorgeous.


Dear LeeAnn,

I have been hearing so much about wedding insurance lately. Should we buy it?

Thanks, Shibon

Hi Shibon,

Great question. According to, the average U.S. wedding is going to cost more than $26,000 this year. Although, we here at Cheap Chic Weddings strive to help our readers having wedding for way less.

It might be a good idea. A basic wedding insurance policy that covers loss of photos, videos, attire, presents, rings, and deposits usually costs somewhere between $155 and $550, depending on the amount of coverage you want. General liability insurance, which covers up to $1,000,000 for accidents, costs approximately $185.

But before you actually buy wedding insurance, check with your each of your vendors to see how well they're covered -- your reception site or your caterer may already have their own insurance, so you don't want to pay for overlapping coverage yourself.

Be sure to find out the details of your insurance plan. Every insurance policy and every wedding scenario and budget are unique. Be sure to talk to your insurance agent -- and have them explain everything to you.

Warm Regards,


Love It!

"The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make / not just on your wedding day, but over and over again / and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife."
