Fondant vs buttercream


The look of fondant on a wedding cake is supremely gorgeous, but also quite expensive. I learned from this really cool article that you can still get fondant, but with a layer of buttercream on the cake, so you can still get the best of both worlds. It is also important to book with a cake maker who understands not only what icing to use, but can offer you advice on what works best with your budget yet still making you a cake that is special. For design inspiration, head off to the Knot’s cake gallery.


Looking out for sample sales for your wedding gown


When shopping for a wedding gown, a great way of saving on the gown is by buying them at bridal boutiques offering a “sample sale”. Many of these gown are from top designers and if you are lucky enough, you may be able to get one at a bargain price. As an example, check out the sample sale at Hitched Salon.

Halloween candy for your wedding


October is here – it’s the month right before Halloween! But more importantly, it is a perfect time to load up on candies. Many retailers such as Walmart and Target carry dozen of discounted candies – many of which are specially packaged in Halloween colors, but also in Fall colors. So, if you’re having a wedding at this time of the year, then load up on candy! It’s fun. You can even try places such as CVS for comparing prices.
