How To Save Money On Wedding Photography


Friend/Family - this is, of course, the cheapest solution to wedding photography and videography, however, be aware that this person won't want to spend all their time (despite the fact it is your day) taking photos and they may not take the photos you want them to take, so even if you do rely on a friend or family member re this DO try to have an element of organization agreed with them beforehand, re what group pics you want and where they need to be when, etc. And don't forget them in your thank you speeches and with gifts!

Have a Facebook Page - Create a page for all your guests to upload the wedding photos they took of your day, you will definitely have some there that are wonderful, unexpected and worthy of a place in the wedding album. You can pick your favorites, save them and upload to a site like SnapFish for cheap printing!

Chinese Dress Supply - You can make huge savings.
From what I've seen so far re China Dresses on Facebook groups is that the bride while delighted, often the dress isn't quite like the promotional photo, so make sure you read the reviews and keep your expectations realistic!
Most importantly ensure your measurements as provided to them are spot on.

Borrow - sometimes a family member or friend has a wedding dress that they are happy to loan you with no cost to you other than specialist cleaning afterward.

Make it Yourself - if you have the skill why not? I saw a beautiful wedding gown recently a bride crocheted! It was stunning. Many of us don't have those skills however, but if you do ... worth considering and what a wonderful sentimental keepsake that would make.

Buy a Prom Dress Instead - many prom dresses look a lot like wedding gowns and they're much cheaper.

Will you be wearing a Facemask at your wedding?

Fashion Facemasks for Weddings
In the fight against Caronavirus Zazzle (the print on demand company that I create designs for and whose designers I promote) have brought out a new line of customizable facemasks.

Gold Hearts Couples Initials 
The facemasks are not PPI and don't purport to be, they're mainly what I'd call fashion streetwear but with the added bonus that there is an insert section that allows you to add a surgical mask or filter increasing their ability to provide some form of limited protection.

You'll need to check out the full product details for more info regarding the 'health and protection benefits' as it gets pretty complicated when they're discussing recommendations from the CDC and so on.

It occurred to me that when this pandemic finally goes away (and please let's all pray it does so soon) we will be left feeling somewhat vulnerable and I believe our behavior when in large crowds, such as concerts, cinema, festivals, sports games (…

The Wedding's Off! Now What? How to Cancel Your Wedding

The Wedding's Off! Now What? By Laura Firenze
While not an everyday occurrence, we all know that not all proposals end with a marriage. If a couple has made the difficult decision to break off their engagement, there are more steps that need to follow.

This is a list of things that must be done in the event of a canceled wedding.

1. Notify your family and the wedding party. 

Naturally, most brides will turn to their moms first in such an upsetting time, and it would be absolutely fine for the mother of the bride to inform other family members. It would be ideal for the bride to inform each of her bridesmaids personally of the change in plans while thanking them for all they have done for her.

If the bride already gave her attendants gifts like wedding jewelry, they should be allowed to keep them. In the case that the bride is too distraught to call up each of her bridesmaids to break the bad news, her maid of honor could take over t…

Do I Need To Cancel My Wedding Due To Coronavirus?

up to 50% off Sorry Change of Plans Wedding Cards



With the current pandemic, Coronavirus Covid19 sweeping the word, more and more couples are coming to the realization their wedding has to be canceled. Social distancing, isolation and lockdown dictate that gatherings of any size are now off the table for a couple of months at least. And no one really knows how long this thing will last.

If you are part of one of those couples, I know this is a deeply upsetting time.

You have money, time and emotions deeply invested in your wedding. Will you have the energy to start all over again if it has to be canceled?

And if you are canceling, what are your options and where should you start?









What I'm seeing over at the LowBudget Wedding Group is brides-to-be are mainly allowing two-months ahead of their wedding due date to make a decision as to whether to cancel, postpone, elope, etc.


Some whose wedding date is less than two months away have already made that decision.


They may be going ahead w…
