Are you ballin' on a budget?

The word ballin' is a loosely used slang term that means you have "money".  The rap song by Jim Jones, "We Fly High" made the term a commonly used word, so common that its in Wikipedia!

As you are preparing for your wedding & trying to stick to your budget.... I am positive you want to give your wedding party attendants nice gifts.  Well you are in luck today, because I am sharing one of my secret tips!! Even though you may be "on a budget" you can still give oh so fab gifts for the low!

What's my secret?  Half Off Depot!
This great website allows you to purchase giftcards to some really cool places for...you guessed it half off! 

Here is how it works:
  •  Log on to their website
  • Select the city: right now its only available in Jacksonville, FL; Louisville, KY; Altanta, GA; Jackson, MS; Knoxville & Nashville, TN
  • Purchase them at Half Off Depot for half of the giftcard value
  • Certificates are mailed to you & you use them for full value.  
  • Wonderful right?
So let's say you have a Bridesmaid or Groomsmen that lives in one of the participating cities, you can give them a local giftcard and they will think you went all out just to make it accommodating for them!  Great right!  Yeah I know....Thank me later!!

Nashville Brides you are really lucky because there are some really great places like the Cooper Kettle, Caesar's Italian Restaurant, Ru Sans & one of my personal faves:  The Cupcake Collection!!!  

Check out Half Off Depot, so you can stick to your wedding budget and look like you are ballin'!
