Or you could also plan a fun and casual dinner party with submarine sandwiches from SUBWAY®.

Save your sanity with a catered bridal shower

Standard

Nowadays, planning the food for a bridal shower party can be a time-consuming task. When you factor in how much goes into planning a wedding,putting together a party is a lot of stress especially if you don’t have oodles of time to cook and clean. For saving your sanity, I’ve found some great places that offer catering services:

Lawry’s Restaurant

Corner Bakery

Quizno’s Sub

Macaroni Grill

How to Save on Heart Shaped Sweets

Standard

As soon as Valentine’s day is over, heart-shaped chocolates and candies always go on-sale. Places such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, and Target will put them up on sale as soon as the 15th. If you want to save on finding these goodies when giving them out as favors for a wedding party or bridal shower, then buying them at 1/2 price is a very good way to save. You can store them in the fridge at least until May.

Saving on Wine and Drinks

Standard

When having your wedding reception catered, you can usually save money on wine and other drinks by bringing your own. As long as it is allowed by the facility, you can make arrangements to have the drinks delivered in the morning assuming that your wedding is a lunchtime event. Also, you should make sure that the drinks stay cool by storing them in large coolers filled with ice or even dry ice. To buy wine by the case, check with your local wine retailers such as:

  • BevMo!
  • Trader Joe’s
  • CostWorld Plus Markets
  • Sam’s Club
  • Smart and Final

Wedding Food – Tasting Dates

Standard

Anna from Kayla The Pug Wedding Blog provided a great tip for a cheap wedding date. When sampling food from different caterers, the food and sometimes wine tasting sessions are free. The same applies when trying out different wedding cakes. It’s a lot of fun and you can sample free food. ** DO note that they are “usually” free, but some caterers can sometimes charge a tasting fee, so be sure to inquire first before eating. Add that tip to your tip jar!
