Cant cook oh that's nice I have very slowly about it when. Friends doesn't have been helping me out because I have had that from. New job that all the things. Out and face going a little disease that is good to have help and you started me off with the best advice you always have -- I think to help brides to be that -- -- just got engaged at that season. What -- got to think about things well. This goes for you and for -- the first thing you do realize you've answered. The business this is the biggest business purchases catfish learned that the young learning you have to educate yourself and you also have to realize that outside of purchasing a home or Condo. A vehicle. But a wedding -- the big bucks a ticket item people so. Educating himself finding out what is the best formula for you everyone has a different sort of pattern they want to work worth. Definitely you know keep to particular out of the prize of champion of the day yeah. Can't remember what it's about whomever got out of starch. In depth to a minute and complicated business this is what we've got a few -- -- party. It would be a completely different things could agree on market fact that yes we're getting you're not paying the price the price goes starting lineup. Which is very true specific with -- -- most forested when you're going to say I want -- of the care I want. You know this from my wedding now you have at a party. Instead of the using the -- okay you say you wanna get a no game I know that sounds funny and knows gate metals again I'm right here trying to. No but -- -- but really it's a smaller version of a bouquet choosing not come wired it's a sort of almost like a little tossed bouquets that that -- -- at given today by most part they're going to -- -- more. How casual compact look -- -- -- -- in the whole -- -- here that yes and -- we're talking about budget now where you know obviously you know sky's the limit if you have the capability but. At the end of the day few months -- dollars. Indeed the NASDAQ. And then. Yet if you haven't gotten back yet having I'm address yet I'm looking -- -- and that again is it is a huge expense and I really rather spend money on the -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The one thing that I notice -- stresses are ridiculous. But at least then -- -- way to. I mean do you that in prison thing with any budget no matter what you -- and if -- remodeling your home your planning a wedding you pick one splurge item. And that splurge item is whatever is important to you so fits the cake which I thought was quite splurge out there I've -- -- -- have a -- so good -- -- -- the dress so my advice -- dress shopping is. Think that more is not so much a wedding dress would go to the department store try on some dresses in different colors -- -- designer what fit works for you the best. Then that. Smart again go home. Go online see it becomes an ivory white sent pain or even our friend of -- and now who -- the officers asked you know month is bringing in this beautiful turn device blew. So there's you know there's ways to -- always. Also you can order online and ordered a size bigger it's going to be easier to Alter that ticket and so let's say you want -- with a cap sleeved red. If there's enough fabric left over from a size of two bigger you can. Just haven't added -- There are a lot of stores they just have one on the other day that was 99 dollars up like your chest -- your splurge item under a lot of big ticket stores target cost OK to have states that are only now Gary -- Anthony -- went ahead on. Get a couple of days ago and he was an alien race candidates and don't forget about ability to you -- also Belichick could have basic you know you -- for your right dazzle you can definitely yes but the little -- LBD I mean you could like you know work that out -- there's a lot of options but for the bridesmaids the bridesmaids always get -- Yes we dissidents some sun and yeah let's -- so here's something you're okay. His real specialty well why -- -- is that no -- real -- this is the real boot camp but I've -- speciality. So these are beautiful flowers. We're treated by city -- some -- And tribulations of the from the friends of mine here in new York and went for -- Poland for practice so you have basically your bouquets now this is simple OK this is the simplest thing that'll save you hundreds of dollars hundreds of dollars -- These are fringe tulips. Phillips a beautiful Phillips the key is knowing that -- the -- to look verses of regular to them so what did designing your movie arrangements -- whatever. Try to find you know a Florida -- of the -- machine and use it involved. As someone do that tattered Guerrilla Girls this way yeah I'm a little bit of an answer right now and it's a much less expected -- much less expensive and we are located you're holding there is less to. They know it's not less expensive missed but it is the expensive and -- less expensive and let me tell you why because we use -- which are large -- -- -- lot of real estate -- footprint within the -- of find larger flowers. Where the little mini -- if you wanted to save money you could remove those and just you know. What's carnations in order our dreams -- a really big flower to use as well now here's the thing what I elected. Educate people -- it's called double duty. And double duty is basically what can -- do with this after a walk down the -- so -- -- -- -- coming out through that -- to do and then you -- and the you don't -- so what I. Really think you should do is. Double your money and instead of spending like hundreds of dollars dinner on -- he -- have your instructor bridesmaids in it. Brian is included and sloppiness and a vase with a -- today you can also go a little bit further and have the same kind of leaves that are in -- bouquets placed in the mixer but for the interest of you know.

It's a simple solution instead of having this lane next to your other 600 dollar -- distilling that alone I've done this weddings -- we've saved up probably. You know twelve 15100 dollars -- the budget in the day because I -- is so expensive but it's also bear in -- I didn't -- in the bathrooms or whatever you are saying they didn't just dressing up the rest of the venue when guess is the venue is a huge part that's -- I -- is that here's part of the. -- -- here is a huge part of it I think also another important thing to do is it's.
