Money Saving Tips

*Make your own postcards for your Save-The-Date Cards. Look online for sites that offer free or cheap templates.

*Host a BBQ (weather permitting) for your rehearsal dinner. Whether you cook it yourself or have it catered, you'll save money, and give everyone a chance to relax the night before the big day.

*Use buttercream frosting on your wedding cake, instead of fondant. It's better tasting, plus you'll save a ton!

Dear Sue and Laura,

What is the best way to address a wedding gift check?

Thank You,



Dear Julie,

Unless the couple has a joint bank account, we suggest that you make the check payable to either the bride or the groom. You could also make the check payable to cash.

Hope this helps!

Regards, Susan and Laura

Love It! Hate It!

Love It!:

Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses! You attendants will most likely be different sizes, shapes, and even ages. Let them pick out what fits them the best!

Visit Pinterest@cheapchicweds for inspiration!

Hate It!:

Although nice looking, Tungsten and Titanium Wedding Bands are not good if ever you need your ring re-sized! They're almost impossible to work on.

Better choice; Gold, Silver or Platinum. They will also hold their value.


We love Blueprint Registry! Sign up for free, set up a blueprint...friends and family can then order products (from many great retailers) that you've added to your blueprint!

Friends and family can also give cash gifts, and gift in a group. It's worth checking out!
