Planning a wedding in New York is no easy task, as I'm sure you figured out. How do all of the pieces come together? Where do I begin? These questions are typical for everyone planning their wedding day without the help of a wedding pro. The great news is that L Prestigious Events is here to help. As a team of certified wedding professionals, it's our responsibility to be open, honest and share ways to minimize your expenses.

#1 Cake Table

Reduce the number of event rentals and save hundreds of dollars. One sure way is to skip the cake table rental and opt for stand-out linen to bring the table alive. Another alternative is to use the table. Place the cake on a stand and display it on a table offered by your venue or an antique table from a family member.

#2 Table Runners

Consider adding table runners to the design. This will add detail and a pop of color to the tablescape. Cheese cloths are one of our favorites. Find them on Amazon

#3 Candles

Who doesn't love the illumination of candles? Jump online and buy bulk to save while ensuring you have a sufficient number of candles. Use them to place around the cake table, add to your escort card table, and of course, the guest tables.

Candles range in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Think of pillar candles, taper, floating and votive candles. You choose; it's your day and your way. If you need some expert advice, L Prestigious Events is one contact form submission away.

#4 Minimize the Paper & Save Trees

Individual menus are a great way to present to guests entrees, and the last course treats to come. They also come with a hefty price depending on the purchasing company you choose. Think about having two menus on small stands instead of ten to twelve individuals.
