Money Saving Tip!

Here’s a tip to save some money on your bridal shower or future wedding…look for the after Valentines’ clearances at craft stores and card stores in the weeks to come. You can score heart shaped candies, chocolates, ribbon and more for between 40% and 75% off. That is HUGE savings! Now you don’t want it to look like Valentines’ Day threw up on your wedding nor do you want to stockpile chocolates for a wedding that is happening next year. However, if you are getting married in the next few months, why not look for chocolate hearts and candies for inexpensive favors or for a candy station? Why not tie guest cards or invitations off with a heart ribbon?

If you add a few post-Valentine elements here and there, you can achieve elegance, personality and save yourself some money! Look for sales on candy melts and candy making supplies (sticks, bags, ties) to make your own chocolate lollipop favors or cake pops!

Remember the key to saving is to plan and buy ahead of time!

New Living Social NJ Photo Booth Deal!


This is one of my favorite deals! Right now you can score a deal on a photo booth from Scott Roth Events and Living Social. Scott Roth Events offers photo flipbooks favors (not part of the deal but you can ask!). I saw these recently featured on Four Weddings on TLC. They are so fun! Living Social and Scott Roth Events are offering the following package on a photo booth rental:


• $375 ($750 value) for a three-hour photo booth rental
• $300 ($600 value) for a two-hour photo booth rental
• $450 ($900 value) for a four-hour photo booth rental
• All rentals include a scrapbook, CD of your snapshots, attendants, and setup and breakdown

 This does not include tax and tip.
This is pretty awesome, especially if you let this do double duty as your favors! This could be about $3 a favor (if you can swing it…they will be loved!). Photo booths are memorable and always a big hit! Just make sure that you put it somewhere prominent because guests don’t always know they are there! You can add your own accessories to match your season, theme or personality! The voucher is good until February 8, 2018!!! Check out the deal here!

Living Social Niagra Falls Package Deal for $110!



Right now Living Social is offering an amazing mini-stay in Niagra Falls at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Niagra Falls. Wyndham has an awesome reputation for being an outstanding hotel with a real feel of luxury! The Niagra Falls package normally retails for $203 so you are saving just shy of 50%. If you can drive to Niagra Falls, this makes it an even more affordable deal. Airfare may not be worth it since it is a short stay but this could be a great honeymoon escape for two! This package includes the following:

* One night stay for two for either a Friday or Saturday in a deluxe room

* Wine tastings at Peller Estates Winery, Hillebrand and Wayne Gretzky Estates

* Chocolate FX tour with chocolate covered strawberries (yum!)

You are also allowed to buy multiple vouchers and combine them. This should mean that you can combine a weekday stay with a weekend stay. Between the coupons and package options, you have a pretty complete mini-vacation for a low price!

* Also Living Social has a deal that if you purchase a deal and 3 more people purchase the same deal, then you get yours free! SOOOOOO if you buy a voucher, your partner to be buys one and then some future in-laws or parents buy a set each… you get one free!
