François Pinault Finds Venue for Art Collection in Paris

PARIS MATCH: François Pinault is to showcase part of his vast art collection at the Bourse de Commerce de Paris.
The French business titan revealed the project at a joint press conference on Wednesday with Paris mayor Anne Hidago and François-Henri Pinault, president of the family holding company Artémis and chairman and chief executive officer of Kering.
The 150,000-square-foot building is in the center of Paris near the newly refurbished Forum des Halles shopping center, and in a neighborhood that is being transformed.
The 18th-century building boasts a cupola that is listed as a historical monument. Paul Smith and Lanvin have used it for shows during Men’s Fashion Week here.
Its owner, Paris’ Chamber of Commerce is to yield the site to the city. The handover is expected later this year following a vote of the council of Paris in July and the Pinault family, under the Artémis umbrella, is to be the holder of a 50-year lease. Works are to start in early 2017 and the museum’s opening is slated for end of 2018.
According to sources, the venue could have a restaurant and a terrace giving on a new garden space that’s also slated to be complete in 2018.
Pinault entrusted the project to Japanese architect Tadao Ando,

10 Ways To Save On Your Wedding Venue and Menu

By Amy Levin-Epstein for TheKnot.com

You don’t have to test your credit limit (and then some) just to have a reception in a beautiful location with delicious food. Here’s how to rent a sensational space and put together the menu of your dreams, whether your budget is little or limitless.

2015-04-30-1430402799-2559013-venue.jpg

Get married on a Friday or Sunday.
Whether you’re married on an off-peak day — aka not Saturday — or a less popular time of year (generally late fall through the winter), you’ll probably score a sweet venue for a steal.

Slash your guest list.
This isn’t an easy thing to do — until you see the savings start to accrue exponentially. You’ll seriously save on catering by feeding less people and on your invitations (not to mention postage). And having a smaller space also means less décor and rentals.

More from The Knot: Can We Just Not Serve Dinner at the Wedding?

Go with a venue that’s ready-to-roll.
If you’re a big Father of the Bride fan, you might have your heart set on a wedding at home. Well, George Banks flipped out throughout the film for a reason — a bloated budget. Between rentals on everything from tents to toilets, creating an event where they usually aren’t hosted (whether it’s a home or a bare-bones venue) costs a lot more than a traditional venue.

Exchange vows and celebrate in the same place.
If you’re getting hitched in a house of worship, your hands are kind of tied, unless there’s a reception space across the street. But if you can say your “I dos” anywhere, choose a venue that can do double-duty for your ceremony and for your reception. Not only will you save on venue fees, you’ll also cut costs on transportation and possibly flowers. (For instance, you can have your coordinator transfer your ceremony arrangements to your gift and cake tables while your guests are enjoying the cocktail hour.)

Consider a plated dinner.
It seems weird, since a sit-down dinner can seem more formal and expensive, but stations mean people can take as much as they want, so your caterer will need to cook more food just in case Uncle Bob decides to see how many beef satay skewers one man can eat (the answer: too many for a tight budget). That said, a buffet will save you on labor costs. Family-style is a third option that’s currently having a major moment. Plus, it cuts down on food waste (since people only take what they want to eat and don’t have the option to eat more than what’s on the communal plate). Talk to your caterer or venue coordinator about which is the cheapest option for your particular party.

Opt out of the open bar.
Offer your guests beer, wine and a fun signature cocktail. Since your venue or caterer won’t have to uncork tons of different bottles (usually with an “if it’s opened, you bought it” mentality), you’ll save money without having thirsty guests.

Serve comfort foods.
Pretty displays (or plates) of mac and cheese and BBQ chicken are guaranteed crowd-pleasers. Seriously, ask any potential guest — whether they’re eight years old or 80 — if they’d prefer crispy fried chicken or a baked breast with a fancy sauce — we think we know the answer. Fun food makes for a fun party — and is totally on trend right now.

Skip the champagne toast.
Nothing is sadder to a bride or groom on a budget than seeing a ton of half-finished champagne glasses littering the reception tables after a toast. People can toast with anything they’re drinking. If you want bubbly, go with champagne’s lower-priced, but still perfectly chic and tasty, cousin — prosecco.

Think seasonally.
Strawberries and other fruits and veggies out of season cost more and are not as tasty–a lose-lose situation for your menu and your budget. So if you’re getting married in July, by all means, give strawberry shortcake a place of honor on your dessert table — but if your nuptials are in the fall, serve mini pecan pies as a nod to the season’s biggest holiday.

Throw a brunch reception.
Having a midday brunch reception is not only guaranteed to be a surefire hit with your guests (who doesn’t love breakfast food?), but it’ll also help you make the most of your budget by cutting your alcohol costs way down. Your guests will love upscale versions of brunch favorites, like lobster eggs Benedict, roasted breakfast potatoes sprinkled with truffle salt and a Belgian waffle bar (with seasonal fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream). For your signature cocktails, put a twist on the classics with a garnish-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar and different types of mimosas.

You’d Never Know That This Sparkly Venue Was A Sad, Empty Lot

We love a savvy bride — especially one that can take a sad, empty lot and transform it into an incredible wedding venue using 11,000 twinkle lights and her creative juices!

Redditor Lenabean did just that for her April wedding. According to her post on Reddit, she rented out the Agricenter in Memphis, Tennessee — which is used for farmer’s markets May through October — and turned it into a sparkly masterpiece.

Check out the before and after pics below.

And get this, the DIY bride says the 11,000 twinkle lights she used didn’t break the bank thanks to some forward thinking. “We planned way ahead bought them all during Black Friday at Home Depot and spent about $ 300.”

Wedding planning at its finest.
