Your Wedding Budget

When you’re planning a wedding, your budget is the first thing you have to consider. Knowing how much money you can spend on things like party rentals will help you make smart decisions about how to allocate your funds. Of course, every bride and groom wants to save as much on their budget as they can. No matter how much money you plan to spend on your wedding, these cost-savings tips will help.

Re-Examine Your Guest List

When you make your first version of your guest list, you’ll probably be surprised at just how quickly it gets much larger than you had imagined it would be. The savings of cutting just a few people from your list will add up quickly. Take a few passes through your list before you make the final version to see which names you can trim. Although there will always be people who have to have an invitation, your childhood friend whom you haven’t seen in a decade may not need to a spot on the list.

Rent Party Supplies

Party rentals, such as table linen rentals and chair rentals, can significantly cut the cost of your event. By renting supplies, you won’t have to invest in them outright and you can choose the items that meet both your theme and your budget. You may be surprised at the selection of party rentals that are available for all parts of your ceremony and reception.

Go for a Smaller Cake

Anyone who has ever shopped for a wedding cake knows just how expensive this part of your reception can be. Cut the costs on your cake by picking a small version of the cake you love and then getting multiple sheet cakes in the same flavor. The sheet cake can be cut in the kitchen and served to guests, and you’ll still get to create a cake table using the design you want, at a major savings.

Creative Baby Shower Activities (That Aren't Games)

Cheesy games are just as traditional as the baby showers themselves, but if you’d rather avoid the awkwardness, feel free to make your own traditions. In fact, your baby shower doesn’t necessarily have to have an itinerary. It can simply be a fun time to socialize with friends and family, have a few mocktails, and try a few non-game activities that are genuinely enjoyable. Just don’t forget to pick up the party supplies you’ll need, like table linens, rental china, and extra chairs.

DIY Layette

A newborn’s layette is the first wardrobe he or she will wear, though the term is also used to refer to linens, burp cloths, bibs, and toiletries. Buy packs of plain white onesies, burp towels, and bibs, or ask every guest to bring a couple of items in various sizes. Supply guests with fabric paint, and have everyone decorate the baby’s clothes.

Freezer Meals

Freezer meals are a lifesaver for new moms, but it’s tough to find the time to make and freeze meals when the due date is rapidly approaching. Consult the mom-to-be about family favorites, and find out about the ingredients the family prefers to avoid. Ask guests to pitch in to prepare a bunch of freezer meals. Some baby shower organizers also like to do this with homemade baby food. Since the baby won’t start on solid food for quite a while, make sure all homemade baby food is safely canned.

Diaper Raffle

Ask each guest to bring a pack of diapers to exchange for a raffle ticket. Each additional pack of diapers they bring for the mom-to-be will get them an extra raffle ticket. Toward the end of the baby shower, draw the winning raffle ticket and hand out a prize.

Tables, chairs, and china rentals are just some of the party supplies you’ll find at American Party Rental. Call our party store in Austin, TX at (512) 236-5773. Our friendly team will go the extra mile to make sure your special event creates lasting memories.

Don't Let Allergies Ruin Your Wedding

Wedding-related nightmares are common. Just ask any bride, and she’ll probably tell you that she’s had nightmares about walking down the aisle in pajamas, or about consuming a food allergen during the reception and getting a horrible reaction to it. Taking a proactive, organized approach to wedding planning is the trick to calming these fears. So while you’re coordinating with the caterer and arranging wedding rentals, keep a list of your worries. Write down your concerns about everything from allergies to the weather, and deal with them one at a time.

Pollen Allergies

Outdoor weddings are romantic, but sneezing and sniffling your way through your vows aren’t the type of memories you want. If you or other attendees have severe pollen allergies, make arrangements for an enclosed tent rental. It’s not foolproof, but it should help keep everyone comfortable. Consider having it set up a day or two in advance, and running some heavy-duty air purifiers with HEPA filters before the ceremony.

Food Allergies

Food allergies can lead to life-threatening reactions. When you send out your invitations, ask your guests to RSVP with information about food allergies and sensitivities. Talk to the caterer about these issues, and have a variety of hors d’oeuvres and meal options to choose from. It can be particularly tricky for guests to determine if an appetizer is safe to eat, as these tend to be wrapped or rolled. Ask the caterer to put small signs on each platter to identify potential allergens.

Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is an itchy skin reaction to an allergen or irritant. This won’t necessarily be a problem for your guests, but it might be a problem for your ring finger. Make sure your jeweler is aware of any metal allergies or sensitivities you have. Nickel allergies are the most common.

Basic Steps for Planning a Fundraiser

Fundraisers are the lifeblood of charitable organizations, and these organizations rely on dedicated people like you to make these events happen. Before spreading the word about your fundraiser, take some time to get organized. Determine the type of fundraiser you want to hold, such as a charity walk or run, silent auction, or carnival-style fair. Next, you’ll have to create a budget for your event rentals, as you’ll learn when you watch this featured video.

This video outlines some other essential steps to take. You can enlist your friends and family to help. You’ll also put out a call for volunteers, and market your event. Once the money has been raised and counted, and the event rentals are all returned, remember to send a thank you note to all of the people who helped you.
