Understand that an RSVP can save you well into the $100's of dollars! 

Make sure you get a less expensive price for children, quote for you when you are reserving the caterer.

Remember when you give your "final count" of guests to the caterer, keep the children counted separately.

Family members tend to offer "What can I do?"  So if you are catering your own wedding, add butler service for fun. Or share with your caterer, to make your special day even more festive.

Here are two for you to use, if you like!  To see much more go to the Chef Plus Lecture.

Saving with Family!

Bartering is great!  Exchanging checks keeps the bookkeeping easy. Sometimes there are actually bartering companies that offer this as a full service, like ITEX barter group.  

Consider bartering or making the gifts for your wedding party too.

Every saving counts!

I just love to save money for weddings!

Make sure you have a envelope box and not just an open basket for your "gift cards and checks" - you make not know all your guests!

If your wedding is in a busy hotel, make sure someone greets guests, to make sure you do not have any visitors!  Yes, this happens.

Some important information for your Beverage Service

Do not announce a last call.  This is important, because you do not want people drinking up till the end of the reception.  Make sure the bar closes 30 minutes minimum prior to you leaving.  You might wish to have a coffee bar set up and served with your cake cutting.   This might even decrease the consumption of alcohol, which is important if you are paying for a consumption bar.

Would you like 10,000 extra miles on your credit card?  Never hurts to ask!!!

How should I pay?

It is advisable to talk to your insurance agent to see what kind of coverage you can extend for this special day, especially if you are hosting your reception at your home. You should be able to obtain a liability policy specifically for the event.

  • One of the best places to save, will be your menu!  
  • Are you inviting Corporate Clients to your child's wedding?  Are Wedding Donations Tax Deductible? What about if I donate the left over food to the food kitchen?  Are the business clients I invited to my daughter's wedding tax deductible?
  • Can you do a little extra for your guests?  If you give a basket of goodies to your guests staying at a hotel, pack it with munchies. That way, you can save them the expense of eating from the hotel  mini-bar, where prices are often greatly inflated.

We would cater, using our "butler service" for guests waiting in banquet line, that way the guests felt served in a style they so deserved!

Remember to share with your caterer, to make your special day even more festive.

Catering Expert for Wedding Receptions

Hi!  I'm Sandra.  I know more about catering then I EVER expected to know!

Over 35 years ago I started building, what turned out to be, "an award-winning" catering company with about 50 employees.  Most were part time! Built a 14,000 Banquet Facility, ran a huge off premise division and limousine company.

With my expert advice, I can save you time, maybe hundreds or thousands of dollars!

Yes, I have catered thousands of wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and events! 

Now, I am passionate about helping Brides
       SAVE MONEY!
      Have more time to celebrate!
      Experience less bridal planning stress!  

There are just so many ways to save when booking receptions, and most brides, (and parents), are clueless when it comes to how our industry actually works. 
Do you know the art of "wedding reception negotiating?"

My Catering Company was voted a national finalist in Catering Magazine AND I am la Chaine Chef. One year we grossed 1.8 million in revenue. 
I say this to let you know, I am a professional from this service industry.
Yes, I DO know this business, but enough about me....

I want to give you the tools and tips to "save money" on probably the most expensive day of your life!  

This is what led me to create Secret Wedding Savings and more....

Sign up and find out the real secrets, the questions to ask and forms to use! Now that you found the person  you will spend your life with, let me teach you - so you have more money for the honeymoon or maybe a down-payment on your home!

This is next best decision, you should make!
