If you are looking to save some cash for the groomsmen in your wedding party, send them to the Men's Wearhouse to get their tuxedo rentals for your wedding. Each guy will get $30 off and if you send at least 5 guys there for their rentals, the groom will get his rental for FREE!! Wahoo! All the guys have to do is join the Perfect Fit program, which is free and easy! They can either sign up online or in store. Pass on the savings to those groomsmen!
A live band is always the most classic and elegant way to present music at your wedding, but turntables are making their way back. The problem with live bands is that they sometimes can't play an array of music. They usually stick to a couple of genres and this doesn't always gel with diverse guests at the wedding. Try looking for a specialty DJ or someone who knows you and your guests. They will be able to personalize the music for your day!
If you've been looking at dresses to find your perfect match, consider the season you're planning to get married in. If you've dreamed of a backless, halter dress but plan to get married in the middle of winter, consider adding sleeves, a complementary jacket or a cashmere wrap.

The wedding aisle often gets overlooked. When you make your grand entrance all eyes are on you as well as the aisle you walk down. So don't forget to dress it up! There are several ways to do it too. We especially liked an aisle we saw recently at an outdoor wedding with a water background. The walk way was filled with pastel zigzagging flower pedals leading the way. It was amazing! You may also add metal flower buckets or bins to the end of the aisle chairs. Either way, you will enhance the aisle way for your walk to the altar.
For those of you that have been to a wedding and received a favor of 5 (or more) Jordan almonds, did you know the significance behind this? It's an Italian tradition with each sugary treat representing health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity. With these compact treats, there are a number of unique ways to package up these well wishes.

Wedding Trend - Fresh Flowers on Your Wedding Cake
Thursday, May, 16 2013 • Florals • by Dynamite Weddings
Fresh flowers always add a cute and refreshing touch! Adding fresh flowers on your wedding cake is very artistic and elegant instead of using bulky sugar flowers. Many sugar flowers are also elegant and artistic, but depending on your wedding decor we have seen that more brides choose fresh flowers for that nice little touch. The most popular fresh flowers seen these days include orchids, roses, tulips, daisies and gardenias. Take your pick ladies!
Survey Says - What Was the Biggest Expense Of Your Wedding?
Tuesday, May, 14 2013 • Survey Says • by Dynamite Weddings
What was the biggest expense of your wedding? Would you say now it was worth it?
The venue we chose (Arden Hills Country Club) cost a lot, but they took care of so much (ceremony site, reception site, catering, bar, wedding coordinator, tiramisu). - Melanie, June 2007 The place we got married. It included every thing though so I believe it was worth it. (ie. Ceremony site, receptions site, dinner buffet, drinks, and an overnight stay for our wedding party including brunch and coffee the next morning). - Nona, married August 2007
The cocktail party before the wedding. I wasn't there, but the pictures are great so, yes, it was worth it. - Lauren, married May 2007 The biggest expense of our wedding was the photography (The Memory Journalists). It was definitely worth it! - Amanda, married October 2007 The biggest expense was the venue and the food. I do think it was worth it because the service was awesome, and it really set the tone for the kind of party we were hoping to have. Iâ??m sure we could have had a nice wedding someplace cheaper, but I was very happy with our decision. - Julie, married September 2007
