New Ideas

Fresh from Bridal fashion shows… Watch out for bridal gowns made in anything but white.


Dear Cheap Chic Weddings,

My son is getting married and he says that the groom's parents are supposed to pay for the honeymoon! Is this customary? I am a single parent and his Dad has no interest in helping out. I am trying to help my son and his fiance out as much as possible but I just can't afford a honeymoon. What should I do?



Dear Dianne,

In the past the groom and his family did pay for the honeymoon, but these days it is not really "tradition". If the groom's parents have the means and want to do it that's great. It is pretty commonplace for the groom or the couple to pay for their own honeymoon. If you can't pay for it they really shouldn't expect you to. Check out some great money-saving tips for your honeymoon here

Best Regards,


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

Love It:

*We still love when a bride wears a classic set of pearl jewelry. Pearls never go out of style and you can even wear “faux” pearls to save some bucks.

* Deep Red is the hot color of fall and winter. If you love it, Use it!

* Many brides and grooms are creating slide shows that are played at the reception. Use family pictures, date pictures, and vacation picture to share with everyone.

Hate It:

We hate it when we cannot hear the words spoken at the ceremony. Check to be sure that everyone at the ceremony site will be able to hear everything!


What is more important than the photos of your wedding and the events surrounding it? After all of the digital photos are taken and friends and family have sent you of the photos they have taken, check out Shutterfly

You send them your digital photos from home; they print them up and send them right to you. They have great package deals, and offer a slew of photo products as well.


Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

~ Edmond and Jules de Goncourt
