Wedding Wise Wednesday

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

The Recession Bride's Workshop is NEXT SUNDAY!!! Get the answers you need to know about how to have your dream wedding on your non-$28,000 wedding budget. Use the code "WedCharmFive" and save $5 on registration. Space is limited, plus, I really want to meet you! Go NOW.

This just dropped into my email box, and it's perfect. A while back, Daily Worth requested tips on how guests can save money on weddings their attending, and they got some tips...from a bride. My favs? Instead of throwing down tons on an expensive registry, offer to supply one of the wedding essentials like the wedding cake cutter, champagne flutes, stuff like that. Check it out.

The Events

Saturday, June 19
1-3 pm
North Hollywood Performing Arts Center
11020 Magnolia Blvd
North Hollywood, CA 91610
Not all that much going on this weekend in Wedding World, so you should take a break and go to the Frugal Festival Summer Swap, if you're in town. Bring clothes, shoes, accessories, media, and housewares to swap and trade. My big bag of crap is already at my front door. VIP tickets are sold out already, but it's only $5 if you bring swappables, $10 without, and each admission comes with a re-usable (of course) bag stuffed with goodies.

The Deals

Last week I was invited by @2500milewedding as a guest to the Grand Opening of Dolly Couture's new store in Tarzana. Dolly Couture creates these GORGEOUS tea-length wedding dresses, that start - wait for it - at $395, and top out at $995. I'm gunning to get them as a sponsor for the Workshop, or really, just let me wear one. WANT.

My Big Day for 10k posted some fabulous and fabulously priced wedding shoes. Check out these gold slingbacks, only $39.95!

It's my personal opinion that candy makes the best wedding favors, and did you know that June is National Candy month? Wedding Outlet is here for you - use the code "SweetTreat" at checkout for a 10% discount. Good until June 21st.

Alfred Angelo is looking for THE Wedding Dress Diva. Is it you? Post your You Tube Video of the cheeky awesomeness that is you and win a Diva For A Day prize package worth over $5,000, which includes, of course, a wedding gown AND bridesmaid dresses from their collection.
