Saving Money on Music at Your Wedding

There are many articles out now on how to save money at your wedding. But brides beware, some of the advice being given is just plain BAD!
We are in the position to talk to many wedding professionals who are the ones who will be working hard to make your wedding a success. Today we spoke to Knight Sounds Entertainment. They were happy to pass on some practical advice to you!
  • You can still have the wedding you want, but the first thing to consider is to put the date off a little longer than you would like and save for it! Don't go into debt just to have it right away and then start your married life together overwhelmed financially and possibly end up divorced.

  • Don't just plan to use an ipod and do it yourself. That could end up destroying your happy day. Without a professional emcee there to direct events, get the party going, and make special announcements, your wedding could be over in an hour.

  • The best way to cut $100 off your entertainment budget might be to book your entertainment for 3 hours instead of 4. Or have your wedding on a week day instead of the weekend. That one decision alone can save you on most every service you will need.

  • If you simply can't wait and want to get married now, then plan a simpler chapel wedding and hold a big party a year down the road and relive your special day with everyone present!

Wedding professionals let's hear from you, give us your ideas for how couples can save money and still have the wedding they have been yearning for!

Thanks to Jennifer Spangler for her tips and advice. Knight Sounds Entertainment has been a vendor at the Bridal Spectacular for 30 shows! You will be able to meet them in person at the August Bridal Spectacular.

Best of Show Booths Albertson's, Emerald at Queensridge, The Wedding Salons at the Wynn

The Wynn
Emerald at Queensridge

Choosing the best booths at a bridal show is always difficult because there are usually so many. Each show our wedding professionals that exhibit at the show help to choose their peers who have done an extraordinary job presenting their products to the brides who attend. Over the last couple of months, I have been posting the photos of the 16 winners. The three you see here today Emerald at Queensridge, The Wedding Salons at the Wynn and Albertson's were wonderful to look at and in the case of Albertson's delightful to taste!
Emerald at Queensridge: ....where romance meets elegance in splendid style! Emerald at Queensridge is Las Vegas premiere wedding and banquet facility! Located in the prestigious Northwest part of town, our lush landscaping, spectacular mountain views and dramatic sunsets make Emerald's setting like no other. Click for more information.
The Wedding Salons at the Wynn: Every wedding at Wynn Las Vegas begins with preferential check in and a special welcome amenity. Whether you choose the "The Forever Ceremony" or "The Elegant Affair", you will find a setting that is elegant and distinctive, yet enchantingly peaceful,where every detail is handled by dedicated wedding professionals.
Alberson's Floral and Bakery: Albertson's can help you with your wedding florals and your wedding cake and they can do it within your budget with fabulous designs that you would see in any bridal magazine to choose from!
