It is summer time, I have a lot of things to do....so i love festivals. There are like Walmart for what I do, I can find business networking, things for film and plays, fashion, and personal items.
All in one place....
For a wedding, if you are open minded, a cermanic bowl can hold guest cards for sign in.
A dress is great for your reception.
A local band is a more affordable option for a funky cocktail hour.
So...do not count out art, music, or craft festivals.
