It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – For Buying!
It’s the Holidays and you are probably making shopping lists, buying Starbucks and looking forward to being around friends and family.
While you are doing all of that, I am sitting at my desk thinking of all the great things you might want to purchase for your wedding a week from today.
Here are a few items you might think of purchasing:
EVERYTHING will be on sale. This is a perfect time to buy Bridesmaid’s and Groomsmen’s gifts. Hostess gifts, Bridal Party gifts. Hotel Gift Baskets! Does anyone really mind saving 75% on something you were going to buy anyway?
Party City, Michaels, Hobby Lobby – all will have paper goods on sale and coupons for 50% off total purchases. If you are choosing to use paper goods rather than china, it’s a great time to buy appetizer, dinner and cake plates, napkins cups for drinks, cute boxes for favors, it may seem early if you are getting married in the Fall, but how nice to know all of this is already purchased which leave more money for everything else you need to purchase!
Same stores as above. Do you need décor? Cute signs? Frames? Table Decorations? This may be a great time to shop for those items as well. West Elm and Pottery Barn all have beautiful votives on sale.
Being wise with your budget means you will have more money for other extras! Or maybe more money for the honeymoon! And what a relief – to know that all of these small details can be checked off your list!
