Money Saving Tips

*Save a ton by purchasing a pre-owned wedding gown. Some companies even offer bridal party gowns too.

*Look to your circle...Do you have a friend who is musical, a baker, a great cook? If they offer their services for free or cheap, make sure to buy them a nice thank you gift.

And when you're shopping for thank you gifts, take your time, and look for sales.

New Ideas

Dear Sue and Laura,

Is there a right or wrong time to cut the wedding cake?




Dear Melissa,

You would typically cut the cake after dinner, but it's also acceptable to cut the cake at the beginning of your reception, just before the first dance. This is often done when you have guests who may leave early, like grandparents and or kids. It's entirely up to you!

Love It!:

Making an Ice Cream or Gelato "Bar" for desert. Fun for all ages!

Hate It!:

We love! On their site you can create your own personal wedding hashtag for free. Ask your friends to share wedding pictures of you on Instagram using your specially made hashtag. Pretty cool!

For a small fee, you can also design your own Instagram Wedding Sign.
