With high gas prices, the housing meltdown, and a possible recession looming, Robin Williams, the owner of WeddingsAffordable.com, wanted to give her readers more than a few ideas for cheap weddings and inexpensive honeymoons. Starting the end of May 2008 the national based site will advertise specials and discounts from local wedding vendors in each state beginning with Florida, Georgia, California, Texas, New York and even Canada.

"WeddingsAffordable.com is going local," says Williams. "It's a no-brainer. Brides and grooms-to-be tend to buy from local merchants just as much if not more than the ones that are only online. This will be a huge benefit to those who are on a strict budget and want to be cautious with their money.

When asked if she is doing a disservice to wedding and honeymoon vendors and professionals during harsh economic times she responded, "This actually helps those vendors target brides who would otherwise not have known that they could afford the wedding vendor's services. Wedding vendors can advertise the specials they are already running. I am not against extravagant weddings," says Williams. "I just believe that those brides who are little low on funds can still have an elegant, yet inexpensive wedding."

In addition to advertising deals and specials on Weddingsaffordable.com, wedding merchants will offer their own suggestions and advice to brides. For example, Florida's first featured company was Berry's Wedding Photography. He suggests, "Always get the Pre-Wedding photos of the Bride, Bridesmaids, and the Groom and Groomsmen out of the way at least 2 hours before the wedding starts. The more portraits that are taken before the wedding the least amount will be needed to be taken after the wedding which in turns makes the reception go more smoothly..."

Suggestions like these from local vendors is valuable, but some believe the website encourages brides to cheapen what could be a beautiful day. "I am not trying to cheapen the experience," says Williams. "I am just serving the needs of my audience."
