New Ideas

The hot trend in weddings is "kindness". There is nothing new about kindness but incorporating a charitiable element in your wedding is gaining popularity. Wether it's making a donation to a favorite cause in your guests name (in lieu of favors) or buying your dress at the Goodwill (like Angelina Jolie) doing something good together is a loving way to start off your marriage.


Dear Cheap Chic Weddings,

Is it inappropriate for the mother of the groom to wear a dress the same color as the bridesmaids? A totally different style of coarse.



Hi Terri,

The rules for dressing the mother of the groom (MOG) are:

The mother of the groom's outfit is always dictated by the mother of the bride. She must wait to see what the mother of the bride chooses to wear first.

It is considered a faux pas to out dress her.

The mother of the bride blends and coordinates with the bridesmaids in color, length and formality. Then the mother of the groom coordinates with her.

The MOG wouldn't wear the same color as the bridesmaids or MOB--just coordinate. So, wait for her to choose and then decide on your color and formality of dress. Hope this help.

Best Regards,


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

Love It:

*The new, richer spring pastels (not the Easter Egg kind). Colors like sage, lavendar and coral ar showing up and they have a deeper, yet soft look.

*Flowy, feminine skirts on wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses. Think 1940's galmour.

*Using unusual guest books for your wedding. You could use a special quilt for your guests to sign or a guitar or anything that is meaningful for you.

Hate It:

* Not taking advantage of our 2nd Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest! You can win prizes toward your wedding or honeymoon! Yes we are gearing up for the big event. This year we decided to hold the contest starting June 1st. Stay tuned for more details as we will be updating the contest page soon! If you are not familiar with the fun take a look at some of last years entries at Wedding Contest


We just found a bargain hunter's dream of a website! has started an online bridalshop and it is loaded with great products at great prices. They are carrying bridal gowns, bridesmaids gowns, accessories, shapewear and more. Bridal gowns start at $129, and Bridesmaids Dresses start at $99. Cute shoes and accessories can be found $5! This website is definitely worth a look-see!
