New Ideas

Imprinted Paddle Fans. They can now be ordered with personal messages, photo images and pretty much anything you can think of.

Find internet shops and use these cool retro fans as favors, thank-you messages, or even invitations.


Dear Cheap Chic Weddings,

My future in-laws are having the rehearsal dinner at their home. It's really not going to be anything special. It'll be just a regular Sunday dinner. I am a little disappointed. I thought since they aren't helping out with our wedding costs, they would make it a little nicer. Is it wrong for me to say anything about it to them?



Hi Kelli,

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. It really wouldn't be proper to say anything to them since they are hosting the dinner. However, you might discuss it with your fiance. If he wants to maybe he can talk to them about it. They might not be able to afford anything more. Tread lightly as this is a delicate subject.

Good Luck,

LeeAnn Cheap Chic Weddings

Love It.........Hate It

Love It:

1. Simple Fruit Centerpieces - they're beautiful and inexpensive

2. Pom Pom Car Decorations- garlands hanging off the "get-away" car

3.Crepe paper Decorations for the shower or reception

Hate It:

High Gas Prices! Makes honeymoon travel more expensive, whether you travel by car or plane!


Biodegradable Confetti by Ecofetti.

Check out this earth friendly and awesome product. Ecofetti is available on

It is a great alternative to rice and bird seed. It comes in several colors and is starch based so it disintegrates when it gets wet!

The site claims it only costs about 20 cents per guest. We like this cheap-chic idea!
