Wedding Tip for Broke Brides
Your dream wedding doesn’t have to break the bank, with a little planning, careful consideration, and a few unique money-saving ideas you can create your perfect day. Here’s a quick tip from David Bridal:
Flowers are a big expense for brides. Instead of flowers, maybe choosing a bouquet of broaches that you’ve collected from your family and incorporating colors of the season such as fruit instead of flowers. If you do go with flowers, those that are in bloom will be a lot cheaper than flowers that are not.
Sunday is your last chance to ski New Mexico. Taos and Santa Fe are closing this weekend but there is still plenty of fun to be had. In Taos, don’t miss pond skimming, that’s when competitors use any means necessary to skim across an 80 foot pool of ice cold water. This annual end-of-season event is Sunday from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at the base of strawberry hill — the best costume earns extra points.
And in Santa Fe, snow bunnies can take advantage of awesome savings in the Sports Shop. Many items are reduced 50 to 60 percent and if you show your season pass you get an additional 10 percent off. This is a great time to stock up for next year
