Wedding Wise Wednesday - December 23, 2009

Every Wednesday, I post the coolest stories, deals in events in Los Angeles and around the web - and we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

First of all, Happy Holidays, y'all. Second of all, if you haven't seen my tweet, Weddingish is having a fabulous in-store sale that ends today for those you looking for only last minute gifts - everything in the store is 50% off. Weddingish is at 10210 Riverside Drive, Toluca Lake, CA 91602, and is open until 6pm tonight. You can also give them a call at 818.980.4188 , and ask to speak to Raya. Awesome stuff - this where I got my rhinestone encrusted cake cutting set. Which was $40. Which you can now get for $20. See what I mean?

Broke Ass Bride in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons

Got a heads up from Dana, one of my favorite local wedding divas - she's got a piece in the January/February 2010 issue about saving money on your destination wedding. It's all about networking. First thing is to find out who else is getting married at the same place, around the same time, and start from there. It might be possible to share decorations, shipping costs, even your photographer or DJ. Less is more in this case. It's on the stands now, or you can read Dana's article on her website at

DC Legalized Same-Sex Marriage. Let's Keep it That Way, Okay?

So proud of my adopted home town! The Mayor has signed it into law, but Unfortunately, some members of Congress are trying to veto it, either by overturning it directly, or attaching a rider to another piece of legislation to overturn it. They have 30 days, until January 19, to do it, so go to Credo Action and sign a petition that will be sent to your representative in Congress, in support of the new law. As of today, they've gotten 3,856 of the needed 5,000 signatures. Sign the petition and pass this info along!

Next week, we're going to say Goodbye to 2009 with the Silver Charm Awards - the Best of Charmed Weddings for the year. Until then, Happy Festivus, Merry Christmas, and enjoy!

See you at the end of the aisle,
