…and it really really is!
Looking online for wedding items is as easy as pie. The big high street websites such as Debenhams, BHS, Littlewoods and Phase Eight have sales through the year, so keep your eye on these sites for their sales as they are definitely worth it. As well as though websites other ones that are worth a look are ebay, Amazon, ChloeBeck, Glitzy Secrets, Not on the highstreet.com, and one of my personal favorites Etsy among many many more.
To save money on your dream wedding dress you can find your perfect type of gown by going into shops and trying different dresses on until you find the perfect one and then order your that dress on eBay. There are dress makers in China who make great copies of wedding dresses to your measurements for the fraction of the cost that the dress would have cost bought from a bridal shop/bridal fayre etc.
There are mixed reviews from the custom made dresses from China, some people who have had good experiences and others who have had not so positive experiences, for this reason I advice that it is very important to check the reviews for the seller before you decide to purchase.
If you are happy to have pre-owned, wedding forums can be a great place to pick up some bargain from women who have recently got married. Many modern brides sell their wedding stuff on after the wedding, everything from bride and bridesmaids dresses to accessories and decorations. Popular wedding forums that you can join include Hitched.co.uk, Youandyourwedding.co.uk, weddingforum.co.uk and Confetti. Not only will you be able to talk to other brides getting married near you or at the same time as year as you, you will be able to swap ideas and tips on great suppliers and themes but also be able to have the chance to buy other brides un-needed wedding items once the wedding is over.
Don’t like the idea of shop bought invites as suggest in “Think High Street” – then you can still but cheap invites online. Vista Print, Moo and 123print have great invites and save the dates that you can personalise as much or as little as you like. Moo do fantastic post cards that can be used to name a few ideas as:
- Messages to the Bride and Groom from guests as an alternative to a guest book
- Place setting’s for the wedding breakfast
Post cards are cheap, quirky, and easily personalised to suit your theme and personal style.
