Plus, we are not huge fans of plastering the bride and grooms face on every water bottle and mint tin but rather prefer to choose one signature item and make that item special – think welcome to our wedding weekend Minibooks™ cards!

We want to remind you PartyIdeaPros.com is here to help you with anything you might possibly need for your big day.

Seriously, we will search our databases and call our contacts to see if there are currently any deals to be had or if anyone is planning to offer significant discounts in the near future.
For example, next Tuesday and Wednesday, The Knot Wedding Shop is hosting their annual napkins event. For 2 days only The Knot will be offering their customers the following deals so even if you aren't currently thinking about ordering your cocktail napkins next week you might decide to take advantage of the savings now.

We are also more than willing to source your Pinterest Board. Although we do ask that you edit your board to include ideas you are seriously contemplating – i.e. Harry Winston diamond engagement rings are probably not in your budget (are you listening Izzy?).
