I feel like singing a song right now,but I’ll settle for a haiku.

Creative I do

Crunching numbers is no fun!  When it comes to weddings, it’s a necessary ingredient to balance inspiration with your wallet.  I’m a firm believer in doing more with less.  I think that with a little bit of ingenuity and a lot of creativity, you can pull beauty out of a hat.

According to, the average wedding cost is $27,800.  This does not include honeymoon expenses.  This is the nuts and bolts of a ceremony and reception.

Don’t despair! If a tiny apple seed can grow a giant apple tree, then your wee creativity can give wings to your colossal dreams!

Here are some creative, budget-friendly areas to consider until we talk again:

  • Save the Dates
  • Wedding Invitations
  • Wedding Favors
  • Ceremony Decor
  • Reception Decor
  • Bridesmaids gifts
  • Groomsmen gifts
  • Flowers
  • Dessert Table

Creative opportunities abound. We’ll talk more soon!
