Figuring out how to save money on the wedding is a very popular topic these days. There are lots of ways to save, but it's important to know how to save effectively and not just randomly cut your budget. (See yesterday's post on using an iPod as your DJ)
Many Web sites and magazine articles have featured ideas on where to cut costs but sometimes you need to ask a professional what would work best for you.
This coming Saturday, June 27th, The New York Wedding Workshop is hosting How to Design on a Dime. This workshop will teach couples how to maximize their wedding look and style no matter what their budget is. Starting with invitation design right through to tabletop and every decorative element in between, you'll learn what is worth splurging on as well as where you can save.
Brides and their guests will leave the workshop with a list of New York City and online decor shopping resources, how-to guides to create breathtaking paper products and referrals for decorators and florists who will actually give you a proposal that is within your budget parameters.
The event will be held from 10 am to 1 pm at Sharon Schuster Photography Studio, 147 West 15th Street, and will feature the following vendors: Double Happiness Creations, Sharon Schuster Photography and Seth David Cohen Videography.
