Burlingame, CA (PressExposure) December 30, 2008 -- AmericanBridal.com, the Internetâs most expansive collection of unique and affordable wedding favors, touts the benefits of planning a winter holiday themed wedding. The online retailer carries a generous selection of holiday-themed wedding favors for couples shopping for their 2009 holiday-themed wedding celebration. Planning at least one year ahead can help to defray the cost of wedding favors, and gives the couple a chance to save money with discount wedding favors.
âThe holidays can be an especially challenging time financially, but itâs a wise investment to set aside a kitty to find wedding favors during the post-holiday bargain shopping season,â said Shirley Tan, founder, AmericanBridal.com. âEnd of the year sales not only help retailers clear holiday items and prepare for new inventory, they can be great sources of savings for the wedding budget.â
When buying wedding favors several months in advance of the event, the favors must have a shelf-life so edibles are not always the best choice. While a favorite among wedding guests, chocolate has a tendency to bloom when past its prime, appearing gray and chalky. Choosing the container early and purchasing the edible contents closer to the wedding date is a viable option for those who want to save money while treating guests to edible wedding favors.
In addition to affordable wedding favors, cost-conscious couples can find additional saving on wedding reception tables without looking like they have cheap wedding favors. Festive holiday wedding centerpieces can be assembled without spending a fortune. A candle surrounded by a pine wreath decorated with pine cones and candy canes or silvery snowflake, garland and ornament, can make stunning table decorations.
Another benefit of planning a holiday wedding can be the availability and cost of venues. Sometimes, holiday parties and company gatherings can compete for the desired venue, so there again, planning early is key. Honeymoon destinations during winter can be more affordable, with lower fares than during the peak summer travel season; plan carefully, though, around peak holiday travel dates.
Tan offers additional advice on winter and other seasonal weddings, traditional and non-traditional wedding themes and wedding favors, detailed in her upcoming book, The Bridal Handbook by American Bridal. Geared toward brides and couples newly engaged and planning their weddings, the book will be available for sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in January 2009, as well as on AmericanBridal.com.
