You Can Have a Recession-Proof Wedding. Even in Los Angeles.

Press Release for my Recession Bride's Workshop, coming up:

You Can Have a Recession-Proof Wedding. Even in Los Angeles.
The Recession Bride’s Workshop, Saturday, May 9th

$28,000. It’s a down payment on a house, half the median U.S. annual income, and…the average cost of a wedding in Los Angeles. It’s a lot of money. Your 401k is not what it used to be (no one's is) - Why spend it all if you don’t have to?

On Saturday, May 9th, Liz Coopersmith, owner of Silver Charm Events, is hosting The Recession Bride’s Workshop, which will show you the best and most realistic ways to save money on your wedding. And, yes, that includes NOT hiring a wedding planner. “The first step is finding out where the money goes, the next step is figuring out how to save it,” says Coopersmith. “We’re not talking about sewing your dress from scratch, or asking your Aunt Susan to make her famous fried chicken for 200 of your closest friends and family. We all know you’re not going to do that. What I am going to do is offer attractive, reasonable alternatives and strategies that will save you thousands of dollars. And you will have the wedding of your dreams.”

The Recession Bride’s Workshop will be held from 1:00 – 3:00pm on Saturday, May 9th, at Market Lofts in downtown Los Angeles, at 645 W. 9th Street. Located only two blocks away from the Staples Center, Market Lofts ( recently won the Gold Nugget Award for mixed project of the year, and is one of the most desirable loft communities in the city.

Admission to the workshop is $20, which includes refreshments, wedding cake samples and a ticket to an upcoming local bridal show – so you can start getting more for your money right away. Registration is now open online at For additional information, contact Liz Coopersmith at 310-801-3602, or
