Wedding Budget Cuts

Since this recession is not going anywhere and a vast majority of brides or newlyweds-to-be are more than likely to be on a modest budget, I thought it might be nice to share some new alternatives.

Over the past couple of years, many of you have called to inquire about the disposable cutlery that looks like real silverware. We are finally offering Metallic Cutlery and Pre-Rolled Metallic Cutlery with a White or a Black Linen Like napkin. Nice, right? Unless your venue includes the silverware with the rental, it’s a nice money saver both because you don’t have to pay the rental fee or take the time to have it cleaned afterward. When people would describe it to me before, it sounded alright, but I wasn’t intrigued or anything. I apologize for judging too quickly. This product is really nice and definitely keeps that air of elegance most wedding planners tend to create. Read the rest of this entry »

Girls Card, Game Night

If boys can have a poker night, than so can we…or at least some sort of game night. Right, girls? Any excuse to get a group of girlfriends together for cocktails and gossip sounds great. I’m not particularly well-versed in Poker, but I’m sure that if we absolutely wanted to play, we could google game rules and tips.

If Poker doesn’t sound like fun to you, put together a game night with say all the classics from your generation. Trust me, A LOT of board games become less than boring once a few drinks are in the mix. To reduce hosting costs, you could make it a drink/appetizer potluck. You could provide a few basic appetizers, some wine, and general mixers, but have each of your friends bring a recipe for their all time favorite low-cal drink (perhaps, they could bring a sample along?).

Regardless of what you decide to do, here’s a recipe for a Dry Vodka Martini, an acquired taste I suppose: Ingredients:

  1. 4 Ounces Vodka
  2. 1/2 Ounce Vermouth
  3. Olives (optional, for garnish)

Directions: Shake well with ice and enjoy.

Invitations - Mood Setters

My sister was recently telling me about a friend’s wedding she’s set to attend in a few months. The bride is on a budget and has been doing quite a few DIY projects to reduce some of her expenses. Read the rest of this entry »

Spring Graduation Planning

We are now well into March and the spring season is definitely underway. Those of you who instantly become Irish this time of year have St. Patrick’s Day later this week and by the end of the month to early April, we can welcome the Spring Break-ers with open arms. In spite of the recent natural disaster in Japan, a nice break from routine (for students, at least) is a silver lining in the clouds. It is a good time to go home, be with family and really appreciate the people and blessings in our lives. Read the rest of this entry »
