Weekdays 10AM-3PM

Weddings are expensive…and brides are always looking at ways to cut costs… a new trend was started by a bride named Faheema Chaudhury who said, “I loooooove cotton candy and knew I had to make a cotton candy bouquet for my wedding.”    The trend is becoming popular with other brides who are giving their bridesmaids cotton candy to hold and some are holding on to the fluffy treat all night.

There are sooo many ways to save money when it comes to planning a wedding…you just need to be creative.

I wanted to do something different at my wedding, so instead of a traditional wedding cake, I did an ice cream blizzard bar.  Guest could make their own blizzards and it went over really good….and it was WAY less expensive then a cake.

Another idea is instead of buying your guests some cheap trinket…like a keychain or a wine stopper…. i made a donation to a local pet shelter in lieu of buying my guests gifts.  Then I took pictures of the dogs that were in the shelter and made table tops so my guests could see the dogs.
