Blog post – 2018.04.25


Entertainment your guests

When you’re on a budget and cannot afford for extra entertainment such as a live band, or a magician, consider DIY a colorful candy bar. Not only does it make a nice decor, but best of all? It doesn’t cost a fortune and will sure keep your guests indulge with extra sweetness throughout the event.




The long weekend

Many couples choose to marry on a long weekend to earn an extra day off, but the truth is you are also combating with other couples for the popularity of the date. On weekends, such as Memorial Day and Labor Day are often higher in demand. Not only will it be harder to negotiate discounts with vendors, but some vendors may even charge an additional fee on popular long weekends! Yikes!




 The power of social media

Or the other way to articulate is eco friendly invitation— send your save the date or invitation via Evite, Facebook, or simply ask your guests to RSVP on your wedding website; there’re so numerous free wedding websites to choose from, such as Zola, The Knot, and Wedding Wire. Not only does it save your time from sorting out all the paper RSVP (and did we mentioned the cost for prepaid stamps?), but also efficiently organized your guest-list in a click of a button.




Let the vendor pick your big day!

We understand setting a specific wedding date is critical to many couples; however, for some, it is just a random pick of date! So yes, your “date” will sure affect your bargain power with most vendors. If you want to play with deep discount, ask the venue/caterer (the most expensive part of your wedding) directly, which date you should get married on to receive the utmost discount from them.




Purchase VS Rent

According to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding gown is $1,564. However, have you ever asked yourself should you buy the one-time dress or RENT one for a friction of the price only?
