Last week, we launched our second e-magazine, WeddingWire’s FallBook 2013. It’s overflowing with this season’s top cakes, centerpieces, bouquets, favors, and boutonnieres full of red, orange, yellow and brown hues, textures, and foliage to inspire your fall wedding decor. And that’s not all! Some of our favorite sections? Check out which wedding and bridesmaid dresses are trending across the USA, how-to pair a statement necklace with your wedding dress, and which outfits to wear to your engagement session. If you’re looking for great advice, we’ve got that too, in the form of tips from some of our favorite wedding experts on saving money without sacrificing style. (Yes, it can be done!)
We’re also excited to share with you a sneak peek at two NEW WeddingWire features. Get a sneak peek of our new and improved wedding websites, and our super-cool makeover tool. Upload a picture of yourself to test the results and be sure to take the beauty quiz to discover your celebrity look.

WeddingWire recently launched an update on features, which we will be posting about throughout the next couple of weeks. But something that we are all very excited about is the launch of two new wedding website themes. We now have exclusive collections inspired from Martha Stewart Weddings, Renaissance Writings and The Green Kangaroo! You can see these, and all of our other great themes, by going here!
In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would remind you all to add the weddings carbon calculator to your WeddingWire wedding website! Allow your guests to help in offsetting the carbon footprint of your wedding with this easy tool from Carbonfund.org. This great tool enables you to plan a ZeroCarbon™ Wedding!
Help us save the Earth, one wedding at a time!
WeddingWire has partnered with Carbonfund.org to offer engaged couples the opportunity to plan a ZeroCarbon™ Wedding!
We have incorporated Carbonfund.org’s weddings carbon calculator into our wedding websites to allow you and your guests to calculate carbon footprints and contribute jointly in offsetting the wedding, making it a carbon neutral event.
We are so excited to be working with Carbonfund.org on this project! We hope everyone does their part to make our planet a better place!

As I drove into work today, I saw that gas has risen to $3.36 a gallon! It got me thinking about how the costs of anything that needs to be transported (i.e. flowers, food, people) are increasing. And since the wedding industry is filled with small businesses that don’t have the huge budgets of a national company, many may have to pass on some of the cost to their customers: you the bride. I’m not saying all wedding vendors will, but some may have to. So for today, I thought I’d pass on some budget saving ideas to help cut your costs:
- Consider having your ceremony and reception at the same location
- Do you own hair and makeup
- Use online RSVP with your wedding website (hint hint: we offer that free) rather than send RSVP cards
- Use fewer flowers and more candles or even buy silk flowers
- Make your own centerpieces (there’s lots of great DIY projects out there)
- Combine favors and place cards
- Only have your cake/cupcakes for dessert (I see so much dessert get wasted anyway)
- Only serve beer and wine and limit bar time if need be
- And think about getting married during the day or on a sunday
There’s lots of ways to cut costs, but the idea here is be smart with your money right now and be conscious if your guests have to drive or fly a ways to get to your wedding. You can still have a great wedding and spend less.
