If you’re planning to include a gift registry, be prepared not just to brace the many questions from all your relatives, but also their (more often than not) unnecessary gifts.
Let’s face it. How much kitchenware and pajama sets can you possibly accumulate? People will want to buy you gifts but try to get a little creative and think of what you really need.
A Dance Floor
Many brides-to-be want a venue that has it all, but when you think of it, is it really necessary?
Once your guests have eaten all you need to do is clear some of the chairs and tables for a bit of room, not everyone will be dancing at the same time and not everyone will want to sit all night.
During the months of planning, all of the details, like flowers, seem important, but you should only invest in the things that matter most to you.
Sure, you want flowers at your wedding, but you don't have to hire a florist for that. Simply do your own research and pick your own flowers for the big day.
A Wedding Band
Do you really have to hire a band for your wedding? In all honesty, we believe your wedding day could be just as special if you didn't hire a wedding band.
Of course, you want music at your wedding, but why not hire a DJ instead? The music will be a lot more varied and it won't cost you an arm and a leg.
A Bachelorette Party
Today’s brides are already treated to months, sometimes a year, of pre-wedding planning and celebrations.
The engagement party, bridal shower, and the entire wedding weekend already attract gifts that are often exchanged for cash or store credit. Is yet another party really necessary?
