Job cuts, less spending, we hear about it everyday...but what happens when a recession lands right on your fairy tale wedding?
Bride-to-be Lindsey Kane says she priced down some of her registry items to make things more affordable for guests, "In a lot of situations, we went with the cheaper version, or the generic version, knowing that everybody is a little tight with the wallet and whatnot right now".
Over at Culinary Corner in the Mesa Mall, co–owner Beth Zanski says in twenty-eight years of doing registries, she thinks it has more to do with changing traditions than dipping economics, "I think actually it's become more practical and less fairy–dream land type thing".
Zanski says now–a–days, brides are aiming less for the fine china and more toward the items they'll really use, but says don't be afraid to ask for that expensive, fancy item that you really want.
Zanski says most places also offer gift cards, so if you can't afford the entire gift, you can still put some money toward it.
