Christmas Blow-Out Deals for Weddings?

Sure! Don't think that post-Christmas shopping is only for sweaters, wrapping paper and candy canes... For you creative types, check clearance shelves for fun guest favors, ribbon, lights, platters (that you can spray paint over - any color you'll need), candles, candy, fabric, seasonal table decor items, ornaments (if you have a holiday 2009 wedding planned), and more.

Also, keep in mind that boutiques and bridal shops may want to get inventory out the door before the 1st of the year as well. Might be a nice time to get a flower girl dress or your wedding gown - a deal off the rack!

Recession Weddings

Happy Monday Everyone!

So obviously you've been hearing the economic buzz about the US being in a recession. Does this affect the wedding industry and the amount of people planning to get married?

One wedding report that we receive says that the number of people saying "I do" will decrease in 2009, but only slightly. No matter what is going on in the world or the economy, weddings will never cease!

Because of this recession economy, you might be able to find some wedding vendor deals depending on where you live. In some areas, people are looking for ways to earn a 2nd income. What may have been a hobby for people (catering, musician, photography, DJ'ing, baking, sewing, decorating) or a once-in-a-while gig, may now become new vendors in the wedding industry. This could be good for you and your wedding budget!

Also, people may be more willing to barter for services at this time. Do you offer a service or product that you could trade for your desired wedding services? Keep that in mind, you never know what someone else is in need of.

Good luck deal hunters! Brought to you by
