Brides on a budget
Lesley Mattos, Founder of Adesso Albums, offers these fabulous tips for budget-conscious brides.
Skip the five-course meal and just do appetizers and/or a dessert bar. Way more fun for your guests to mingle and get to know each other, rather than getting stuck at a table for two hours with Uncle Henry!
Forget the high-priced professional band! Contact your local college music department and give the musicians a chance to show off their talents. You can pay them with dinner and lots of applause!
Photography can easily take up a big chunk of the budget.
Have your guests help create your wedding album instantly with Polaroid instant photos.
Ask them to give their handwritten sentiments in an instant photo guest book like those from Adesso Albums.
