Wedding Wise Wednesday - March 2nd

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

Cool Wedding Thing of the Week: Last weekend, in between rain and snow storms, my October couple, Amy and Rob, got their engagement pictures taken. Don't they look great? Their photographer is Chi-Ling Wang, and her rates are very budget-friendly. She's also newly engaged, herself. Take a look at more of her stuff.

Cool Wedding Story of the Week:
On A Practical Wedding, today, a bride comes to grips with wanting a wedding, not just a marriage, okay?

The Deals:
Are you as much of a Groupon/Living Social/kgbdeals fanatic that I am? There's a daily round-up of all the social buying deals in Los Angeles at You're welcome!

The Sole Mates - perfect if you're wearing high-heels at your outdoor wedding. These babies attach to your heel and prevent it from digging into grass or mud, and they come in different styles and colors. They're $9.95 a pair, use the code "valid" for 20% off your order.

Crane Stationery - So, let me tell you a little bit about Crane. First of all, if you ever get a thank you note from me (like, if you hire me for your wedding) it will be from Crane. Beautiful quality, gorgeous cards. I decided to get some business cards from them, and the lettering on them was too small. Called them up, no long wait time, and customer service walked me through ordering another set, at no extra charge. They're like, the Apple Store genius of stationery. All that being said, if you order your wedding invitations through them, you get 25 free invites with the purchase of 75. GO.

The Favored Bride - Save Save 15% on orders over $50.00 + Free Shipping on all orders over $115. Use the code Save15 at checkout.

Save 10% off your wedding package at the Holiday Inn and Suites, Anaheim/Fullerton, by mentioning their listing in Here Comes The Guide.

See you at the end of the aisle,
