More March events

No matter where you are in the planning process, paying for a wedding is expensive. My job – which I love, is to find ways to help you with your budget. Here is a great idea – especially for your engagement party, rehearsal dinner or your possible change of dress during your wedding reception. RetailMeNot.com is helping one lucky couple focus on the richer rather than the poorer, by giving them a chance to win $5,000 for wedding-related expenses in the RetailMeNot.com Wedding Toast Contest,” officially launched today.

To enter, all you have to do is record a short video in the style of a wedding toast, telling the world why you love RetailMeNot and upload it to YouTube. Entrants must subscribe to the RetailMeNot.com YouTube Channel and tag “RetailMeNot.com Wedding Toast Contest” in the video. Additionally, the first 25 entrants will receive a $25 gift certificate to Sephora.com. More entry information and the official can be found on the RetailMeNot.com site.

Couples are you looking for an affordable and easy-to-get-to destination for your honeymoon? Look no further than Nassau, The Bahamas, where the Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort is offering incredible savings with their Buy One Get One Free Package.

Guests must book a minimum of two nights through their preferred travel agent by April 30 for travel through December 23, 2010 using rate code WBOGO10.

To sweeten the deal, guests who book the Buy One Get One Free Package for a minimum of four nights are eligible for free companion airfare with the resort’s Companion Flies Free Offer. Air transportation must be purchased at time of booking and must be completed through domestic tour operators or online travel agencies by May 10 for travel through December 22, 2010. Think about this for those of you who are planning a destination wedding.

Gilt Groupe, in collaboration with Martha Stewart Weddings, will be hosting their first ever WEDDING themed sale this coming weekend. Starting today, March 12-14, we’ll be bringing you everything you need, want and can’t imagine walking down the aisle without — from beribboned silk heels to the perfect topaz necklace. Love is in the air … and so is the flutter of show-stopping bridal gowns, bridesmaids’ dresses, wedding gifts and so much more.

As part of Gilt’s Wedding Weekend, we’ll also have sharp suits for the groom, get-pretty prep packages for the bridal party, dreamily decadent lingerie, and stuff-of-dreams honeymoon packages courtesy of Jetsetter. And if your head’s spinning with the task at hand, chin up — Darcy Miller, editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings has culled her personal picks to help aide in the planning process.

This is just too cool to have access to: Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang Lavender Label, Thread Made to Order, Temperley London, Judith Leiber, Tara Pearls, Lu Lu Frost, Tutu Couture, Checkerboard Stationary, juice cleanses, chic hotels, some great groom ideas and more. Go directly to www.gilt.com/weddingweekend for your access.

Wedding Salon and Dylan’s Candy Bar are doing it again. Monday, March 15 from 6-8:30pm. Go to discover candy trends by founder Dylan Lauren and cost cutting measures. Of course there will be candy treats. For complimentary entry for 2, use code BENY3C. Log on here and I’d advise you to go EARLY – limited space.

I love a good event and really love a good sale. All I can say is, it’s that time of the year – BRIDAL SEASON and there are going to be lots of shows and events to attend, as well as all the other things you have to do. Are you a vendor who wants me to cover your event, contact me at bridalease{at} gmail {dot} com.
