Cheap Wedding Ideas

Want to save a few bucks on your wedding? No matter where you have your wedding in California, the day of the week you choose for your wedding can really impact your budget.

The most expensive day of the week to have your wedding is on a Saturday. This is because most weddings take place on this day of the week. This automatically raises the cost of anything that you have to rent or anyone who you have to hire to help you on your special day. The month that you choose to get married also plays a big role in cost. November to April weddings are much cheaper than weddings that take place in the summer.

Fridays are the second most popular day so this isn’t a good day as your second choice. Once again you’ll pay a higher cost than if you were married on any other day of the week. If you want to save money you might want to consider having your wedding take place on a day of the week that is less popular. A weekday evening wedding can save you a great deal of money.

If you do decide to have a weekday evening wedding keep in mind that you need to allow your guests plenty of time to get to your wedding at the end of their work day. Just keep in mind that many people may be unable to your attend your wedding if they live out of town and can’t get time off from work during the week. You will definitely have to weigh the big savings with the fact that some people won't be able to attend.

Maternity Wedding Gowns
By Gregg Makarowski

When you are planning the perfect day and you have wedding dresses in mind you will need to consider a few options. Not only are there many styles and patterns to choose from but also dresses to accommodate unplanned situations. Sometimes, life cannot be planned, and wedding dates may coincide with a pregnant bride. Finding the perfect maternity bridal gowns can be a challenge, especially since you may be a different size in several months as your wedding approaches. Maternity bridal gowns should be shopped for ahead of time, but make sure to get alterations shortly before your wedding date.

When sizing maternity bridal gowns, make your sizing selection based on your Pre-Pregnancy Size. Dresses and gowns are cut to flatter your pregnancy shape but your "size" remains the same. We also recommend that you "size up" if you are between sizes. Your wedding may also include children (yours or your fiance's), and you may want to select a color theme that will correspond to your children's attire.

White stretch lace maternity bridal gowns with a silky white liner are a perfect fit for your growing body. Fully lined dresses with support under the bust accentuate your shape. You may want to choose from designer styles like Italian, Empire, Renaissance, or Titanic gowns, which areabsolutelyy perfect for moms-to-be! Most pregnancy bodices and gowns are designed to be durable, breathable and most importantly, comfortable.

Weddings at Point Loma, California

Found this great article on weddings at the Point Loma Lighthouse I thought you'd all like.

Windswept Weddings at the Point Loma Lighthouse

Author: Adam O'Connor

The unique Point Loma Lighthouse is one of the eight Cape Cod influenced structures put up along the California coastline to help sea navigation, and it was erected in November 1855. The
tower was a guiding light at the entry of the San Diego Bay for 36 years. Old Point Loma is at present the showpiece of the Cabrillo National Monument, which pays tribute to Portuguese
navigational explorer, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, first European to set foot on San Diego Bay, and who charted the coast of California.

The San Diego National Park Service is responsible for Point Loma Lighthouse, and they offer the following guidelines for using this site as a wedding location to fulfill your Point Loma
wedding dreams.

Permit fee: $75.00

Weddings are allowed at the Bluff Event Site only

Maximum number of people: 100

Weddings are on a first come, first served basis

Arrangements such as seating, carpet runners, arches, trellises, stages, organs/pianos, or associated items are not permitted, because of the natural terrain of the area

Flutes, harps, guitars and other non-amplified music instruments are allowed. Amplified music or public address systems are not allowed

Flowers are allowed providing they arrive and depart with the wedding party

Birdseed, rice, flower petals, etc. may not be thrown or left in the park

Vehicles must park in the designated area

Weddings may not start later than 90 minutes before park closing time

Receptions are not permitted within the park

There is no alternative location for the ceremony in case of foul weather

The National Park Service strongly suggests that you go to see the Bluff Event Site before completing the Wedding Permit Application, to see if it will meet your needs

Curious park-goers, exposure to the elements and rigid park regulations are the downside to having your wedding at Point Loma Lighthouse. The romantic natural setting that you, your
guests, and of course the wedding photographer will enjoy offsets this. The permit fee is relatively low; saving you cash that you can use to upgrade your honeymoon plans.

Let your guests know they will be outdoors so they can dress accordingly, and don't forget out-of-town guests may need climate information. You and your wedding party should also dress according to the weather and setting. Make sure you let the National Park Service know about elderly and handicapped guests, so you can make special provisions for them.
