Due to the current economic times…we at Cheap Chic Weddings are always on the lookout for ways to help you pay for your wedding. Here is something we have come across that you may be interested in….cash leveraging.

Cash Leveraging is the simplest way to raise money for your wedding. Basically all it boils down to is be willing to give gifts of a TOTAL of $25.00 and invite 10 people. ANYONE can do this!

This really is the most incredible thing you'll ever be likely to come across, so use the link below to visit the site yourself, and see what all the fuss and excitement is about:

Use the POWER of Leverage and Watch $25 become $75,000!

Money Saving tip

Wallpaper, shower curtains or fabric remnants are cheap materials that can make chic table runners.

New Ideas

Cheap Chic Weddings Predication for 2009……

Sassafras! Think of luscious brown with a shimmering feeling.

You will see it on clothes, in makeup, receptions with root beer floats and favors using root beer barrel candy.

You’ll see it on wedding dress sashes and bridesmaids clothes. Even in table settings with gold accents and nail polish with holiday shimmer.


Dear LeeAnn,

My son is getting married in February and he just told me that the groom's parents are supposed to pay for the honeymoon! I have never heard of this before. I am on a tight budget and I don't know what to do. Any advice?



Hi Kerry,

Traditionally, the groom and his family are responsible for financing the honeymoon. But times have changed. With people marrying later in life and/or the current economic times –it is not unusual for the groom himself or the couple to pay for their own honeymoon. Maybe you could contribute a portion towards the trip, but you are not obligated to do so. Your son may be disappointed but just know that you are not obligated to pay.

Good Luck,


Love It!

Love It!:

*Black and Nude color combos. It is so elegant on just about anything, especially bridesmaids’ dresses or even table settings.

*Kohls Department Store Registry

*Martha Stewart Wedding stuff at Walmart!


We love Sephora! If you have a Sephora store near you consider yourself lucky.

You can go to Sephora and try out tons and tons of different make up brands and perfumes and hair products all for free. They have color experts that are happy to help you with anything.

But the thing I love about it the most is that their friendly staff does NOT work on commission. They are all about great customer service. You can go to Sephora and ask one of the women to help you find a look that is right for your wedding day. (or any day or occasion) They will make you up and let you try anything and everything….for FREE and NO pressure to buy!!!


There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
