I had to do my research first before trying this option for getting money for my wedding.
I ended up posting a listing for wedding sponsors on my local Craigslist website. I had offers coming in left and right with people offering their services and then recently I did get some replies that were inappropriate but I paid those no mind.
I ended up getting a videographer, a couture reception dress, invitations, wedding coordinator, and make-up artist all for free! All I had to do was include their information on our wedding website, slideshow at reception, on the wedding programs, and insert their business cards in the favor bags.
Even though I received offers daily, I had to weed through the replies to find people who were "for real" about sponsoring the wedding.
So just a heads up...be careful of who you deal with when you have a sponsored wedding.
