Ways to cut costs for the wedding day

wedding decoration

Everyone knows that weddings can be expensive and according to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding nationally is more than $27,000. There are always solutions for the wedding couple to cut down costs, some better than others. SFGate had an article today covering some suggestions that may provide some suggestions that I thought I would share. The topics covered include catering, cake, flowers, dress, and venues.

I was happy to see that photography was not listed because making sure you get good photos of the big day is the most important aspect of the wedding. All the topics mentioned minus the wedding dress are significant only for the wedding day but photography is something that the bride and groom can cherish for the rest of their lives.


Sandra and Rick Wedding in Clear Lake

Sandra and Rick had a gorgeous wedding in Clear Lake that was simple and perfect. Sandra is a baker and cake decorator and made an awesome wedding cake with gum paste cherry blossoms and peonies as the wedding topper that had such perfect details. She even made two double happiness chinese characters for the sides! I am so happy for the two of them and I can’t wait to meet little Butters!

Arent these Calla Lilies pretty?

Bouquets and Boutonnieres

Here are some shots of the bouquets and boutonnieres that I made for a wedding in Clear Lake. I dont just do photography, I am available as a florist as well! It was the first time I made them and I think they turned out well. To finish off the blog post is a shot of the beautiful wedding cake with gum paste cherry blossoms and peonies! More pictures to come!
