Ringing the changes
A BAR hire company is offering commission to couples who use their bars at their weddings, in a bid to keep sales going during the credit crunch. 
Bubble Event Bars have launched a new mobile bar package for couples requiring professional bar services without breaking the bank.  
Couples are required to put down a deposit which is returned if bar takings exceed an agreed amount and any takings in excess of this 20 per cent will be given to the client.  
Managing director Richard Norris said: 'In light on the current economic climate, we wanted to offer our clients the opportunity to subsidise other elements of their wedding celebrations.'

Honeymoon is the first cutback
HONEYMOONS are the first area a couple  
would cut back on to save money, according to research. 
The most recent of a string of surveys into the effects of the credit crunch has shown that  
over 48 per cent of bride and grooms-to-be are  
re-thinking their honeymoon plans in a bid to save money. 
The research by wedding website hitched.co.uk also revealed that just over 15 per cent would 
try and make savings on the venue, ten per  
cent would cut back on flowers and six per  
cent would do without a professional photographer. 
However just two per cent of brides said they would try and spend less on their dress.
