Great Gifts for Great Guys!

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Gift-giving is woven into weddings as a tradition of  appreciating and honoring the bonds of love, family and friendship.  While there is nothing that dictates considerations such to whom a gift should be given or how much to spend, there is one very important guideline to follow.  

Choose a gift that reflects you have thought carefully of the recipient and what they would like versus what you would like for them to have.   Sometimes the two are the same but it is valuable to know when they are not.

Groomsmen are especially important to recognize as, after all, they are likely to be brothers, best buds, life-long friends or close relatives.  While we very often see the “one size fits all” approach in which the same item is selected for everyone, it can be quite fun and even more touching to select individualized gifts reflecting the unique interests or style of the recipient.   Of course, that will require some searching to find a host of different items. 

 Allow us to share a collection personalized treasures that would be appropriate for those groomsmen who aren’t all cut from the same cloth!  Perfect for a favorite soldier, the sharp dresser, guys with a “man-cave”, a die-hard sports fanatic,  beer, wine or cigar aficionados or even the outdoorsy type!    For more options, feel free to browse our entire gift collection here

Save With A Budget Friendly Wedding

Budget Wedding, Cheap Wedding, Inexpensive Wedding, Save on Wedding

These days, the new trend is not how much you spend on your wedding, but how much you save.  Couples nationwide have proved that it can be done for significantly less than the $27,000 average cost of wedding, without skimping on the details.  Think you can do it?

It’s possible to plan a budget wedding, but you need a plan and discipline to stick to your wedding budget.  Everything else should fall into place.  Remember, the most important aspect of your wedding day is the vows between you and your husband to be; the rest just makes it more special.  The key is to know your budget, stick to it and negotiate with vendors!  They want the business as much as you want what they’re offering.

Planning a budget wedding:

1.  Marry in the off-season on any day but Saturday.

2. Cut the guest list: don’t worry about pleasing distant relatives and acquaintances.

3. Hold the wedding ceremony and wedding reception at the same venue.

4. Larger reception tables means fewer centerpieces and tablecloths.

5. Shop for décor in the off-season or look for great deals with online vendors, such as Advantage Bridal.

6. Use more greenery and in-season flowers.  Skip costly flowers and stick to one or two varieties or go green with potted plants/flowers.

7. Evening weddings cost more and so do dinner menus, but a day wedding with lunch can cut costs in half.

8.  Serve appetizers and drinks rather than the main course.

9.  An open bar equals more money, but a cash bar gives guests the option to drink while footing the bill.  Or, place a bottle of red and white wine on each table and skip the champagne toast.

10.  Serve sheet cake with a smaller, decorated cake for pictures.

11.  DIY invitations (stationary), favors and other wedding accessories take more time, but the payoff is well worth it.

12. Shop bridal trunk shows, revamp a vintage wedding dress or buy a gently used gown for significantly less.

13.  Photographers cost a pretty penny, but there are definitely ways to save here and still get quality photos.  You don’t really need two photographers, which skyrockets costs.  Or ask about using a photographer’s assistant instead.

14.  Look for entertainment vendors willing to bargain.  Many universities have student musicians who can play at your wedding for less than traditional vendors (ask the music department for a list).

15.  Skip the extras!  You might feel like you must have it, but sometimes less is more.

You are only limited by your imagination when planning an unforgettable but budget friendly wedding.  Advantage Bridal is recognized as one of the top online vendors with great customer service and value.  We want you to enjoy the wedding of your dreams. Search our website for wedding ideas and great deals on wedding invitations, bridal accessories, bridal party gifts, flower girl baskets, bridal shoes, wedding flip flops, bridal garters, bridal head pieces and much, much more.  We sell almost everything but the dress!
