Wedding Venue you can wright off?!

Not in a bad way...on your taxes!! At the end of the year we are all looking to save a little cheese on our taxes.

The W.O. Smith School in Nashville is a lovely, lovely, venue, and I have the pleasure of coordinating a wedding there in April of 2011. The Bride and her Groom are VERY musical so the W.O. Smith School was a prefect fit! Add to that the W.O. Smith School is 100% non-profit so you can write off every check you send to them!

Here is great list of features from the W.O. Smith school.
  • The contemporary lobby is perfect for an elegant cocktail hour
  • Main Recital venue seats around 150 for a formal reception
  • Large capacity of 300 when utilizing both lobby and recital hall
  • Venue rental runs $1800
  • Tables on-site!
  • You can set up Friday before your event
  • Ample parking for your guest
  • Located in the heart of downtown
  • Kitchen off recital hall for caterer to use

Need a manly ring?

There is a new-ish trend in mens wedding bans that forgo diamonds and are more "macho" and "understated" A lot of men are going to comfort-fit Tungsten bands for their left hand bling.

That is GREAT news for you brides. Tungsten is A LOT less $$$$ than your traditional white or yellow gold. Not to mention they are WAY more durable. The downside, if your beloved was ever hurt, they would have to remove his finger before they could get the ring off. That stuff is powerful and can not be cut!

Here is where I got Mr. D's ring and I mean it was OVERNIGHT for $99 flat! No tax, no shipping fees. He has forcefully worn it for over a year! LOL
