Hey all! Thanks for tuning into this special episode of #WeddingWednesday coming to you live from the Brooklyneer in NYC on May 25, 2016, and featuring special guest host Jessica Bishop from the Budget Savvy Bride.
Signature Cocktail: The Stoop
This is a signature cocktail of the Brooklyneer, it is a delicious vodka drink with lemon, ginger and kombucha! This cocktail is a perfect summer drink for a wedding. It is a specialty of The Brooklyneer, a great venue for a wedding after party. A great idea for your wedding is to find a unique location to move the party after the reception ends!
Jessica Bishop from the Budget Savvy Bride
Jessica has been running the website Budget Savvy Bride for eight years, a site designed to help couples plan budget friendly weddings. Jessica shared a few great cost saving tips with #WeddingWednesday:
1. Cut the guest list. Jessica shared with us that the BIGGEST way to cut costs is to invite fewer guests, every guest adds the cost of a meal, place setting, etc.
2. Creative alternatives to a traditional wedding, for example a wedding brunch! Brunch food is less expensive, venues are often cheaper at that time of day. A couple from Jessica’s site did a donut cake instead of an expensive wedding cake for their brunch wedding, we love everything about that idea!
3. The Budget Savvy Bride is a unique site in that it features real couples who have created amazing weddings on a budget. You can search for wedding ideas based on your exact budget! Visit Jessica at Budget Savvy Bride for great cost saving tips!
