Love It! Hate It!

Love It!:

Detachable Skirts on Wedding Gowns!

These beautiful gowns from our sponsor at

Kleinfeld Bridal inspire us! Wear an elaborate ball gown or cathedral train for the ceremony, and remove easily for reception fun!

Hate It!:

Cash Bars!

Guests go to great lengths in time and money to make it to your wedding! So, no matter how small your budget is, treat your guests to an open bar.

If you're on a shoestring budget, offer beer and wine, Add a signature cocktail if that will fit into your budget. And, don't forget to negotiate with your vendor.
