February 11, 2012 (Santee)--So you’re engaged! Congrats! Now what? Wedding season is in full swing and brides-to-be and their fiancés are starting the fun yet sometimes overwhelming planning process. It’s no surprise that the budget is usually one of the first items discussed.
According to the Huffington Post, an average wedding costs approximately $27,000 ; with everything that goes into a wedding, that money can only go so far.  Whether it means getting friends together for some wedding do-it-yourself projects or simply cutting back on some extravagances, couples are looking for ways to save every penny possible.  That isn’t to say that the to-be-wed aren’t still planning a fantastic event for friends and family; rather, they’re combining their financial resources with savvy consumer skills to get more for their wedding dollar.
Santee-based Enticing Tables understands--and actually seeks out those couples who want to do more with less.  This innovative company designs, builds and rents modern, metal floral centerpiece  stands, cupcake and cake displays, arbors, ceremony backdrops, candelabras and a whole portfolio of one-of-a-kind event décor that isn’t available anywhere else.  Not only are the designs original and truly eye-popping, but brides get the benefit of custom décor at rental prices.

“All of our centerpiece stands are designed to hold a combination of flowers and candles so you can get that beautiful, magazine-quality centerpiece without spending a fortune.  Because the stands provide visual height, you don’t need a ton of flowers to make a big impact.   Every piece is made in our Santee workshop and is available in a variety of colors to compliment your color palette. We really love helping brides achieve their vision while also leaving their wallets a little fuller,” said Co-founder, Valerie McCartney-- who is, in fact, recently engaged to her business partner!
