Next, set up a long table, decorate it up and leave blank spots for platters & plates. As these people arrive, they can fill in the blank spots with their desserts. Once you add wedding cake to the mix, people will be loving this reception! So will you, since you only spent $$ on your cake!
You could also alter this idea to make it be donated hors d'oeuvres instead!
Go save some money... :-)

Last Friday, I helped assemble reception decor for a large wedding. In fact, there were so many guests that a huge tent had to be rented! Tents are fun, but the scale of them is sometimes daunting for appropriately sized decorations. Big space, requires big decor.
Check out this picture:
To achieve this look, you will need the following items:
- A round table
- 4, 6" rectangular tables
- 4, sturdy wood blocks, cinder blocks, or similar
- 2 bolts of tulle fabric
- 10 table cloths (or 6 table cloths and other fabric)
- A couple sturdy boxes
- 16-20 glass candle holders of various shapes/sizes
- Tealights, votives & pillar candles
- 6 strands of white Christmas lights
Stay tuned for our assembly instructions for this massive wedding reception decor feature!

Buy pieces of the cake (the tiers) separately. Call a bakery or grocery store bakery and DO NOT say you want a wedding cake. The minute the words "wedding cake" come out of your mouth... there is an instant markup - cha-ching$$. Ask to purchase plain white or ivory frosted, round or square cakes and see what happens. Hey, for all they know, you could be a PTA mom buying cakes for the school's cake walk!
It's so easy to put your own ribbon around each tier and to place your own topper on the cake!! Anyone with an artistic eye can easily place some fresh flowers around it too, and create a lovely floral topper. Try this tip, and see how it works for you. Good luck!

I don't have pictures of the cake yet, but it was lovely! It was a 3-tiered cake, with white and red frosting that served 100 guests. When I asked the bride where she got it and how much it cost, I was very surprised. She paid $115 for the cake at WalMart! It came with everything necessary to set it up, including a take-home box to save the top tier, decorative silk ivy and the tier set up pieces. WOW - what a deal. She purchased her cake topper from www.NWweddingplace.com, which was from the coastal mist wedding collection.
If you're looking for a cheap wedding cake, consider your local WalMart if it has a bakery dept. That deal is hard to beat...

Buy individual sized potted flowers or plants. For an outdoor wedding (or indoor even), these would make an excellent aisle runner! Beautiful flower annuals would also make lovely wedding reception table decor as well. Think of the color splash they would provide.

Cruising is an excellent option for honeymooning. Travel expenses can be planned for quite effectively, since all meals and entertainment are included! Also, there are always cruise deals and free upgrades to be found. If you want a lot of "bang" for your honeymoon buck, cruising may be just what you're looking for.

- Formalwear (of some sort)
- Photography (to some degree)
- Floral (to some degree)
- Cake or desserts
- Venue (can be a free one)
Here are the categories that we feel are completely optional, or could be used at their most basic level for serious money savings:
- Limos & Transportation
- Health (gyms, personal trainers, yoga, dance lessons, etc)
- Wedding planners/coordinators
- Printed materials
- Music services
Let's take catering as an example. Do you really need a full catered meal? Could you DIY your own catering and have snacks and hors d'oeuvres instead to go with your cake? The price difference between those 2 food options is staggering. Or videography for example too - Have a friend videotape your ceremony and sections of your reception! The $$ savings there too would be immense. Even so, maybe some of these items are not optional according to you! Take into consideration all the options you have in each category. Nearly every category has a DIY option, a basic option and a full service option. Ultimately, it's your wedding so decide the budget priorities for yourselves.For more wedding planning and DIY information, go to http://www.nwweddingplace.com/ today!

Which wedding services are most effected by recession price increases and soaring fuel costs?
Catering/food, jewelry and transportation services are obvious categories seeing price increases lately. Slight increases may happen as well in some cases for gowns, flowers, DJ's, and officiant services all due to the increased costs of shipping and transporting these items/services. Categories that are relatively uneffected by recession are photography, tuxes, wedding planners, rental services (unless they are delivering), beauty, pre-marriage counseling, invitations & printing, and venues. Whether or not these items will see price increases "just because..." remains to be seen!
Stay tuned for more recession-proofing wedding ideas.

2. Know what you're willing to spend money on, and what categories are "skimp-able". If you have a budget, which nearly all weddings do, you'll need to creatively fit everything in. Want a fancy wedding gown? Don't care so much about the invitations? Need a great DJ for the reception? Not sure about what kind of food or desserts to have? Take everything into consideration and figure out your priorities - rank them. Make sure to consult your groom :-)
