I know I originally said Mid May...I have spent quite a bit of time on perfecting the sample......the most important thing to me is safety as these are going to be used on Guest Tables.......after various trials of different vases, it appears that the safest way is going to be to use a plaster to keep them secure in the vases!

Affordable Invitations

So have you started to consider your invitations yet?

Selecting invitations can be very overwhelming, book after book, price after price it can be down right stressful.

A point I always try to make to my Bride's is this......determine how important your invitations are, as there are many kinds of invitations out there and a wide range of prices. Always remember 9 times out of 10 your guests recieve the invite and it sits on the fridge till the event and then in the trash it goes.....

Below is an example of a great affordable invitation is called a seal and send

The response card tears away and only requires a postcard stamp.....the price range on these are great some even as low as $75 per 100

Although I understand this option may not be to everyone's liking, it is a great way to cut costs!

Here is an example of a seal and send invitation:

This particular invitations sells for about $125.90 per 100

Here you will find other samples of Seal and Send Invitations

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers.......

Today per request......

Let's Talk Flowers

Flowers for some can be the most important element in their weddings plans and others not so much.

Determine how important flowers are to you and what flowers you must have....

Visit with a few Florists, you may be surprised at how much estimates can vary....

Think in season, if you try to be flexible with your flower selection, ask your florist what is in season, this is a great way to save using in season flowers.

Planning your wedding around Holidays......Most Churches and Venues have Flowers on location for Holiday Seasons like Christmas, Easter...

Don't be afraid to see if there is a wedding before or after yours, being able to split the cost of Ceremony decor has become more popular. Also being able to use Ceremony Flowers at your Venue for decor is also a great way to save by having the flowers do "Double Duty". Please make sure this is an option as some Ceremony locations require the flowers must stay on location.

Non Traditional Florists - Supermarkets - Some cringe at that thought of using a supermarket chain for there wedding flowers. The Bottom line is I have seen it done, it is defiantly an option, your flowers may not have as much WOW as going to an actual Florist but this is an affordable option!

DIY Flowers is always the last dreaded option, some buy in bulk and make arrangements themselves or have a crafty family member take on the chore. This is however not an option I recommend, I have seen too many people have there bulk flowers arrive dead or wilted.

Here is a list of Flowers by Season:

DIY Projects..Are they worth it???

Today I would like to talk about DIY (Do it Yourself Projects)

I have seen time and time again Couple's decide to do many things DIY.
DIY Projects are sometimes viewed to be MAJOR for saving $$$$

My advice would be to make sure you know what you are doing, price out the supplies you need for your project. Many times a project ends up costing so much more money after accounting for mistakes, TIME and aggravation.

For example, DIY invitations are a big one, as doing this can save a great deal of money, however account for the INK, the Supplies, the time and Big MISTAKES. Lining up the paper correctly, spelling errors, etc.....

A great cost effective way to avoid DIY invitations are an option called a Seal & Send, most retailers that carry invitations have these available. They may not work for some situations but if you can make them work for you its a +. Generally for a Guest list of around 150 you can purchase these completed for roughly $200 give or take. So after figuring in your DIY invite kits approx $130 for 150, Ink $50, and Time....why bother with the stress?? Here is an example of a Seal & Send....

Let's Talk Budget...

The average wedding in the US for 2009 was nearing 30k……

As everyone has had the vision of their day since they were a little girl that above number can defiantly seem a little scary. I have even noticed a trend in couple’s paying for their own weddings. Whether the couples themselves are paying in full or have help from family, there is no need to break the bank in doing it.

Please note in this post I am providing facts thru research, but some content is MY OPINION.

Decide on a number and stick with it.
Determine who is paying for what.

I personally believe your FOOD, Entertainment and Photos (in that order is #1)

Here are a few ways to save tips:

Having a Bridal Consultant is money well saved!!! I’m not just saying this because I am one!!! We are lucky to have the experience to have worked with many vendors, many locations, to know where you will get the most out of your money!

Think OFF SEASON – sometimes that place you have always dreamed of is untouchable $$$$ in July, but you may see a significant less rate in April…..

Use word of mouth referrals, many times using a vendor a family member or good friend has used can result in a great deal

Visit Bridal Shows as many vendors offer Specials

Interview multiple vendors, you want to be sure you are getting the most for your money, and don’t be afraid to ask for a discount. The worst they can say is NO! Don’t ever be afraid to Bargain, some vendors offer packages with stuff you just don’t need.

Try to utilize what your vendors have to offer……can your DJ provide Ceremony Music? Saves on a ceremony musician….no second body, no travel fee…..

Some Vendors offer multiple Services….Photo/Video/ DJ some offer great packages that by one stop shopping can save you $$$ and TIME.

Stay with Flowers that are in Season

Shop Sample Sales - .designer gowns for less is an excellent way to snag a Gown that may have been out of your original price range.

Compare Prices on Gowns – Most shops prices should be relatively the same, unless it is an off the rack sale. As shops are required to sell at a certain MSRP, some try to be more competitive

Save on Transportation by having you ceremony and reception in the same location

Trimming the Guest List is sometimes a must, this to me is usually a last resort, but let’s face it sometimes the Guest List can easily get out of control….

Do it Yourself Projects – This is a topic all for itself, I am a firm believer that in some aspects DIY Projects are a great way to save, but I have also seen some DIY Projects cost more than they should!!!

This topic can go on and on.......

Please share with me what you budget experience has been......

Well I have a Great Deal for you today....
I do details... will be offering Chair Cover Rentals for $2.75 w/sash
Yes that is not a typo, many people ask how I can keep the pricing so low well the truth of the matter is 1. I love what I do, it is important to me to help make everyone's dream a reality, and let's face it planning a wedding or event in this economy has proven to be trying.
2. I have the opportunity to work from not having a storefront has its downfalls, being able to provide things at a great price is a win/win for everyone, but I have a target goal for a storefront in about a year.
Also don't forget to become a Follower for you chance to win the "Bathroom Basket" Giveaway. Winner will be Announced MONDAY JAN 18.

So I also want to know, What are you doing this weekend in your planning?

Let's get started.....

OK so the Holidays are officially over....

It's time to get out of the Holiday Slump

What is next on your to do list?

Keep in mind many couple's put their planning on the back burner thru the Holidays, which means if you still have vendors that need to be booked....get a move on it..

With all the the Bridal Shows just about over now is your chance to secure your remaining vendors. You may have your heart set on that certain photographer and waiting may cost you quality.

Always remember to meet with multiple vendors (2) at least, being compatible is key as they are a very big part of your day. Always ask if they are running any you never know the great deals you can find.

So I'm curious to know are you way behind?

Unsure as where to begin to get out of your Holiday Slump?

Till next time,


Welcome to the i do details...Blog

I am excited to announce our new blog........

I am hoping with this blog to create a great place to have fun, discuss topics, earn prizes and highlight some great guest posts from other local vendors.
