Wedding Wise Wednesday - April 14th

Every Week I bring you the best wedding deals, events and stories that I find in Los Angeles and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!
Ooh, two things before I start:

1. Big, huge partnership announcement coming on Friday. Watch for it.
2. For those of you who follow me on twitter, I wasn't kidding about helping you with your $10k budget wedding in exchange for a 64gb iPad. I was serious - this package right here. You'd be paying like, a third of what that usually goes for. Yes, I am slightly crazy, but that's what makes me a great wedding planner. First inquiry gets it. I will, of course, be blogging the heck out of the process.

Now, where were we?

The Stories:
Allison Kornberg, Assistant Editor for L.A. Magazine, is planning her wedding by committee, using advice and polls by her readers. This week, she's messing with the dress. Don't mess with the dress, Allison.

The Deals:

Emaline Bride has this pretty, pretty pearl cake topper in the initial of your choice. And it's only $15. Some letters, like "A" and "O" are only $10. Dunno why. Less pearls?

Anneken Design is offering a great special - book your wedding flowers before April 30, 2010 and get 1 free centerpiece and free petals, whether you want to use the latter to decorate your tables, decorate your aisle (make sure to ask your venue if they allow it!)

The Events

In the next 36 hours:
TODAY is the last day to sign up for Jen O'Sullivan's charity engagement shootout. Get your engagement pics, shot by MULTIPLE photographers, for FREE. The shootout is next Thursday, but you need to reserve your slot today. Hit the link for more details.

Now, remember Bridal Shows are not a to-do list. You don't have to feel pressured to buy or have anything you see there, but it's nice to know what's possible, isn't it? And you'll get a slew of ideas for your own wedding. And seriously? FREE cake and pretty dresses. Have fun!

See you at the end of the aisle,
