Sue, Laura and Roxie 2007 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest

Money Saving tip

Bring in those warm fall colors and textures with these ideas. Use flea market finds like old copper pots, cool jars, or small wood cartons or to make centerpieces or tables-scapes. Just add pretty branches or small bunches of warm colored flowers to complete the fall feel.

New Ideas

Green is still big no matter what time of the year! Why not add some eco-friendly ideas to your wedding plans. There are some things you can do while saving money too. We have been saying all along…Use less paper while planning for your wedding. Cut as much paper out of the invitations as you possibly can. Try communicating through your wedding website, or by email to cut back.

Buy Local as much as you can. Try to use locally grown flowers, or nurseries for greenery.

Another one of our long-time ideas…Use a hand-me down dress or buy a pretty vintage dress!

Potted plants make great decorations. Double up the use and give them away as gifts after the wedding!


Dear LeeAnn,

My favorite color is pink. My wedding is in mid-November and I’d like to know if a Pink and White wedding is appropriate for this time of the year?


Peggy S.

Dear Peggy,

We get this question quite often! It is always appropriate for the bride and groom to use whatever colors they like at any time of the year! It is your special day and you definitely want it to be done your way! Good Luck on your upcoming wedding.

Warm Regards,

Lee Ann

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

Love It:

  • The hottest metallic for fall ’07 and winter ’08 in SILVER!
  • Using seasonal decorative items can save you money. Use apples, pears, nuts, maple leaves, gourds and pumpkins. Natural accents always look terrific!
  • Fall food…love those hearty stews and soups, roasted vegetables, and pumpkin breads and spice cake. Think of using these foods at your fall wedding.

Hate It:

  • We hate getting stuck away from home and getting cold. Don’t forget that fall weather may bring chilly temperatures as the day goes on. Make sure the ladies have sometype of wrap for the evening.


I can’t stop talking about this one! You can now make your own Kleenex Brand Oval Tissue Box. All you have to do is go to and start creating your very own oval. The front of the box lets you add any photo you want from your own computer. Then it lets you choose from all kinds of backgrounds, borders, graphics and words. The possibilities are endless! I had so much fun making these for my friends and family. Each oval costs $4.99 plus shipping. Think of how many ways you could use this for your wedding…they make cute favors, thank you gifts or boo-hoo packages for mom and mother-in law!


Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
