Wedding Wise Wednesday - April 21

Every Wednesday, I bring you the best wedding events, deals and stories in Los Angeles and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

The Stories:

While I'm THE advocate for having the wedding you want, whatever that is, you need to make sure that your guests are happy and taken care of, regardless. Project Wedding's article 5 most common wedding guest complaints will give you some insight on what to avoid. And the comments are priceless.

Odds are, this is one of the few days in your live where you're going to be on display, non-stop, and Jen O'Sullivan has some tips on how to look good in your wedding pictures.

The Deals:
Jobyna's Bridal in Glendale, which is still one of my favorite couture shops, is having a massive sale on Sunday. Up to 70% off their dresses, which usually start in the 4k-5k range. 9am - 4pm, and you have to make an appointment, so call (818) 248-0026 or email 805 E Wilson, Glendale, CA91206

Ran into Chris Easter from The Man Registry this week (LOVE it. Remote-control beer cooler, anyone?), and he's offering my readers free shipping on groomsmen gift orders of 4 items or more. You have to call in to place the order at 1-877-476-6601 and mention my name and my blog. After all, that NCAA team grill topper is not going to buy itself. Hee.

The Events:

On Friday, Martha Stewart Weddings' etiquette expert will be on-line to answer any quetions you have, like, for instance how to apply Project Wedding's suggestions to your wedding, or invite wording, stuff like that. I will be checking that one out myself. 12-2pm EST, which is 9am-11am in L.A. Register for it here.
