Congratulations Jenny and Charles!!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather this past Saturday at the Washington Duke Inn. James from Walters and Walters took some fantastic pictures!

Showtime Events did a fabulous job with the lighting!

Are you kidding me with this cake?! Swank Cake Design, did a phenomenal job! They captured Jenny’s style and theme perfectly. There were three chandeliers hanging above the cake and framed photos of the parents on either side. Just gorgeous!

Michael from Fleurtations did an amazing job on the flowers, I wish I had pictures of the bouquets, they were breathtaking! The navy Ostrich feathers were a fantastic element and were totally with the style Jenny was going for.

Congratulations to a wonderful couple!!!

I often get asked, what is the best way to cut cost for your wedding? There is always one answer:

Cut your guest list.

The more people you invite to your wedding the more money you’ll spend over all. The more guests means:

  • More invitations to be mailed
  • More food to serve
  • More tables and linens and china to rent
  • More cocktail napkins, matchbooks, and other details

So when you’re planning your wedding, draw up your guest list first to see how many people you are planning on inviting. Then look at your budget and see if you can afford to have all of these people at your wedding. If you have to cut the list, better to do this early before you send out save-the-date cards and book a location.
