New Ideas

A great cheap idea for church flowers or a garden wedding is to give each guest a bunch of baby's breaths as they enter. It's a beautiful way to decorate the seating area and also makes for great photographs.


Dear Cheap Chic Weddings,

I am throwing a bridal shower for my best friend. My problem is, she wants to invite about 50 people. I can't afford to host that many guests. What should I do?


On A Budget

Dear On A Budget,

She is your best friend, right? Tell her your dilemma. See if the two of you can compromise or come up with some cost cutting ideas. Remember, you are not obligated to throw her the party. You are friends, so be honest.

PS: Since you two are friends, she should be considerate of your budgetary constraints, right?

What's Hot And Not

What Hot:

1. White dresses with touches of color, especially black

2. Skipping the wedding favors all together

3. Mother-of-the-bride wearing pants to the ceremony

What's Not:

1. Cheesy wedding favors

2. Fussy dresses

3. Ugly bridesmaids dresses


Targets Club Wed Service:

We love it. When I got married I registered with Target's Club Wed and several fine department stores. The Club Wed service was far above the rest. They show you how to use their scanner and pick out your items. They upload the list in their computer and you can edit it at anytime. Best of all Target has so much cool stuff at great prices.


Someone once said.....

A successful marriage requires you to fall in love many times with the same person.
