Money Saving tip

In many cities at many venues, you can save a substantial amount of wedding dollars by booking your wedding and reception on Friday instead of Saturday.

New Ideas

All that Glitters is Gold! Gold is the sparkle that you just may need to add a special touch to your wedding. It doesn’t have to be over the top. Add touches here and there. Use gold accessories in your hair or a touch of gold on your shoes or sandals. Gold wedding cake toppers are elegant too!


Dear LeeAnn,

I would like to give my sister a nice bridal shower but I only have a few hundred dollars to spend. I need some ideas for having a tasteful shower within my budget. Help!


Karen Brown

Dear Karen,

A great shower can definitely be done on your budget. First, be prepared to host the shower at your home or another family member's or friend's home. Spend as little as possible on decorations or make some yourself. Balloons are inexpensive and fill space nicely. You don't have to go crazy with the food either. If you want your shower at lunch time, make tea sandwiches and punch and tea. If you have the shower off mealtime, you can certainly get away with appetizers, snacks and cupcakes or cake. The main idea here is to keep it simple. What makes showers great is being with good friends and family....oh and don't forget to throw in a few games too!

Have a great time and congratulations to the bride and groom!

Warm Regards,

LeeAnn Holly

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

Love It:

  • Semi Permanent Eyelash Extensions. Have them put on professionally for about $50. They make your eyelashes look fuller and longer. They last about 3 weeks.
  • Long stem flowers tied off with wide ribbon. Leave the stems exposed for a great natural look.
  • Nothing says fresh and light like an all white bouquet. Mix and match different flower types to help cut the price while keeping the same bold impact.

Hate It:

  • Not recycling your toilet paper wedding dress creations.
