While having a wedding shop such as David’s Bridal order wedding shoes for the bridal party may be a convenient option that move will likely result in the costliest footwear. The secret to the best selection at the most savings is to go online: Broader Selection. In addition to the obvious—you have access to more inventory through the Internet–all types of shoes are showing up in weddings these days. You still have the option of purchasing traditional bridal brands like Touch Ups and Dyeables in white satin, of course, but the alternatives are much broader. Color is common for today’s […]
Note: I know this isn’t “spot on” target for a wedding site, but as year-end approaches and dealerships begin a push to clear out old models, I felt it important to share this information with you. The story is true and the ten resources named in the article are to help you avoid the same type of car-buying experience I had. ~Bobette The old saying, what you don’t know can’t hurt you, is not only false, it’s dangerous. What you don’t know about buying a car, even from a car dealer you trust completely, CAN hurt you, sometimes by thousands […]

One of the most intriguing current wedding trends is the chalkboard. The written-upon, black slate look is appearing as signs, painted upon glassware or favors, and even incorporated into wedding stationery. Which, of course, means more appearances in wedding invitation designs. Here is what you can expect to find when ready to shop (you can see an example of each in the image, left to right, top to bottom) … FLOWERS. Few things pair better with weddings than flowers. Naturally, blooms–both in color and white against black–can be found drawn upon chalkboard-look paper. (Style shown is here.) WOOD. Chalkboard paint […]
As you may have noticed, MyOnlineWeddingHelp.com has a new look! The logo’s new as is our bride, diligently searching for just the right products for her wedding. I’ve also been changing the site structure to more clearly match the “Create Your Dream Wedding on a DIY Budget” tag line. This all revolves around the “Top 5 money saving rules of the DIY-budget wedding,” here, which are the best methods for getting great value from products you buy for the wedding. Those rules are: #1: Do it yourself ONLY where it makes sense. #2: Buy pre-owned or slightly irregular when you […]
Have you tried out Google+ but didn’t really know how to find wedding-related people or businesses? (Believe me, I can relate…it’s a bit hard to see the value in Google+ at first.) Here’s a way you can “kick start” your account–shared circles. On Google+, a circle is similar to lists on Facebook or Twitter and groups elsewhere: “clusters” of people/businesses that are similar in some way.
