Wedding Wise Wednesday - August 4, 2010

Every Wednesday, I give you the best wedding deals, events and stories that I find in L.A. and around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

Oh, and Happy Birthday, President Obama! 49 years old, which is disturbing, because I can see that from here. VERY disturbing, actually.

This Week's Cool Wedding Thing:

The Man Registry posted these awesome wedding invitations on Monday, made out of NES cartrigdges. My husband owns a video game store in Burbank...Have we finally discovered a way to combine our two businesses? Hmm.

Also, Real Simple Weddings has the ULTIMATE wedding wine and liquor calculator. I will be using this forever now.
