So yeah, this stuff is hard. And if you're anything like me, you'll be lucky to find enough money to scrape together for a Day of Coordinator, let alone a full Wedding Planner. But experienced Wedding Planners are godsends, and I don't mean that lightly, because they actually are professional event planners who already know the town's venue and cost saving secrets and can see the logistical challenges and answers a mile off. But for many of us, planners are an expensive pipe dream, and we're left battling with the Knot (and our mothers.)
Because of all of that, I'm really excited to help get the word out about Liz Coopersmith's upcoming Recession Bride Workshop. Liz, who planned the Los Angeles wedding of her dreams for $10,000 and gave us a great guest post on planning a $10,000 wedding in Los Angeles, is now offering an afternoon workshop in which you can pick her brain about all sorts of budget saving and sanity saving options. One of the many reasons I love Liz is that she's adamant that you can have the wedding you want on the budget you have, and she'll really show you how at the workshop.
These workshops are intentionally small, so she can really get a chance to answer your and your partner's specific questions. This isn't general "cut your guest list" advice that makes me want to scream. Liz is here to help you. Bring your budget. Ask your questions. She'll walk through the specifics of how much this wedding stuff actually costs, what are the easiest ways for you to cut back, who has the best deals and discounts in Los Angeles (and you should also be following her blog for weekly deals on Wedding Wise Wednesday ), and she'll talk about the real costs and benefits of DIY (because sometimes DIY can be more expensive and irritating, so you should know that before you, um, buy a sewing machine like I did.) Also, she's going to have cake and cocktail tastings, along with examples of fabulous lower cost pre-loved dresses.
Oh, and the best part is how recession friendly the pricing is: $20 per couple. Even better? You can get a $5 discount through next Wednesday, June 16 if you use the code ""WedSaveFive."
