Wedding Wise Wednesday - May 19

Every Wednesday I talk about the best wedding deals and events in Los Angeles and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

And let's get interactive here - let me know in the comments which event you wanna go to, and which deal or discount you like the best. I wanna know what I should keep feeding you guys!

Idea of the Week:
Oh, I just like this so much. Looking for inexpensive but way cool wedding favors? How about gumballs? Project Wedding has them in this fancy pockets, but I'd just put them on the table in plastic bags or little boxes. And you can color coordinate them with your wedding colors. Seeing that just gave me such a happy, I can't even tell you!

The Deals:

Okay, first of all, the 99 cents store is also digging deep into the wedding market, so much so that they have listed twenty-three selected Los Angeles stores that will have a special (yet limited) number of high end wedding items priced at 99 cents each. I count three stores near my house, how about you?

For those of you who are deeply into the shoe change after your wedding ceremony, Old Navy's $1 flip-flop sale is Saturday. Blue flip-flops, anyone? Thanks to CheapTweet for the heads up.

Instead of a ring pillow, how about a ring bowl? Monogrammed. On etsy.com. For only $5. Variety of uses afterwards, from candy bowl to office nic-nac holder. Dude, it's only $5 and pretty. Thanks to PreownedWeddingDresses for the tip.

So, which deal are you going to run out and grab? I've already put the flip-flops on my calender, somewhere in between the bridal bootcamp and the wedding mixer.

Oh, and hey! If you're getting married between July-August, I'm offering $200 of my Wedding Day of Coordination Service. 10% of your deposit is going to Lupus LA in honor of Lupus Awareness Month. BUT, you need to email me at liz@silvercharmevents.com to schedule an appointment before the end of the month to get in on this, so you've only got 11 days. Seriously, let me worry about your wedding, just enjoy the day with your nearest and dearest.

See you at the end of the aisle,
