Thanks for coming, now go quickly…
Dear Blog Guy,
I need some advice on planning my wedding, and naturally you’re the first person I thought of. Everything is so expensive! Can you give some tips on ways to cut costs without seeming to be cheap?
Sure, and congratulations. Many couples these days are offering speed-receptions – that is, wedding receptions that last only six minutes. As you can see in these photos, guests are stuffing their cake-holes as fast as they can, up against the deadline.
You can save a fortune this way, but just make sure somebody knows the Heimlich Maneuver. Another tip: forego napkins at the reception. Who needs ‘em? A little sticky icing never hurt anybody, and that’s what dry cleaners are for. Have a great time!
