Weddings tend to be very expensive right from the bride’s gown to the venue and the décor.
The transportation, videographer and caterers are also part of the list of expenses.
Despite all these expenses, a perfect wedding can be achieved through tireless planning. A strict list should be kept to avoid buying unnecessary items.
The bride’s dress is a number one priority when shopping for the wedding and usually the more appealing the dress the more expensive it tends to be. So when picking out a dress, try and find a dress similar to the one you can’t afford by comparing prices across boutiques.
Should you fail to find a similar dress, rather get one tailor made for you by an experienced tailor who specializes in wedding dresses. Buy the material and trimmings needed by your tailor.
This will be much cheaper than buying the original wedding dress. Make sure the dress is made in good time should alterations be necessary. You get to look so beautiful on your wedding day in your dream dress without the extra cost.
When buying a wedding gift, it is imperative to take into consideration the newly weds’ preferences. When you have established their tastes, try and find something they might find useful. Find something durable.
This will ensure it lasts longer, as it will be of sentimental value. The wedding gift should be necessary yet practical. If a theme has been provided, please adhere to it. Wrapping is not necessary, but it would be thoughtful to do so.
