Should you be looking for a wedding cake Kelly Oubre Jr. Wizards Jersey , then you will probably be after really low wedding cake prices, correct? If that is the case, then you’re in luck! Directly below are a couple of simple tips & techniques that will help you get the lowest wedding cake prices possible!

How To Get Less Costly Wedding Cake Prices…

1. Simple Saves. Your cake doesn’t have to have fireworks coming out of it, a world famous musician to jump out and begin performing, nor should it need a specific area where doves fly out as you and your partner cut into it during the ceremony. Keep the decorations simple and you can keep expenses low. Being simple does not mean “must be dull” — don’t forget that!

2. Less Equals More. When there are less guests, there is much more cake to go around. This is the easiest tactic to get lower wedding cake prices because you simply don’t need to order as much cake. 250 guests at $4 per slice equals $1000. 100 people at $4 per slice is just $400. See the difference? And in all seriousness, who said a LARGER wedding is a more enjoyable one?

3. The Freelancer. There’s lots of individuals who run businesses in their down-time and these businesses may range from book keeper to digital assistant to surf coach to even, you guessed it, wedding cake maker. Look in the newspaper, the phone book, and all the classifieds sections you come across for cake baking specialists. These people charge substantially less than private bakeries & pastry shops and you normally get similar, if not a better, end result. Ask about references and even give them a test order before you commit.

4. Be Ready. Do a little perusing online and find images of wedding cakes you would like, then print them out. They don’t have to be identical to what you want, just similar to what you are looking for. If you go in ill-prepared, not only will you end up spending more for pointless extras, you might actually buy the wrong design or decoration and have to pay out of pocket for that massive screw up. To put it in layman’s terms: Know Before You Go!

When inexpensive wedding cake prices are the objective, these tips & helpful hints are your best friend.

Whatever you need to save money on — be it wedding cake prices, party decorations, or even inexpensive wedding dresses — Dream-Weddings-on-a-Budget will help you do it with ease.

HOUSTON, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- With the Chinese Spring Festival holiday season of 2016 approaching, residents in Houston of the U.S. state of Texas, with or without Asian origin, have stepped up their expectations for the annual celebrations starting next Monday.

One of the them is Barbara Quattro, a 72-year-old local retiree who has been helping coordinate a parade in a local community of Houston, the fourth largest U.S. city with a Chinese population of 300,000, to mark the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year, or the Year of Monkey.

""I live in the most diverse neighborhood in Houston, so we have wonderful opportunities to observe and celebrate the holidays of many different cultures without ever leaving home,"" said Quattro who claimed to be a fan of the traditional Chinese celebrations.

In downtown Houston, a large celebration has been slated on Feb. 13 in front of the Houston City Hall. Last year's event drew over 20,000 participants coming all over Texas.

""This year, we hope to double the size and interest of our annual event,"" Angela Chen, a festival coordinator, told Xinhua, ""If the weather is good, we are expecting many more because we have more exciting events that celebrate many cultures.""
