4 Easy Ways to Save Money on the Big Day

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

Most people dance around this, but we like to tell it like it is: weddings can cost a lot of money. The dress, the venue, the décor, the cake – they can all add up to sums of money you might not have even considered before you started actually planning the Big Day.

Under these circumstances, it makes perfect sense that you want to save money anywhere you can on your wedding – and even more than that, you want to save money and make sure you still have the wedding of your dreams.

What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind in this respect? Here they are:


  • Consider a mid-week or daytime wedding. The more “offseason” and the farther away from Saturday evening your wedding is, the more likely it is that you will score better deals in terms of the venue, the décor, the food, and so on. The reason this happens is because vendors are less busy on these days and times of the day, so it is likely that they will be happy to offer you a discount.

  • Opt for simple greenery. Not only is this a really, really popular wedding décor element right now, but simple greenery can also be absolutely stunning in terms of how it makes a wedding look. Even more, greenery is the kind of décor element that can really save you a lot of money, as it is frequently much less expensive than actual blooms.

  • Skip the favors. Truth be told, nobody will even notice they’re not there. Sure, showing guests your appreciation is really nice, but most people don’t actually care about the nicely wrapped cookies and the fridge magnets with your engagement photo on them. If you want to, turn your candy bar into a “favor bar” by offering people the option to pack away some of the goodies.

  • Consider rental and slightly used décor and accessories. You might not want to do this with your wedding dress (and that’s totally fine), but you can still do it with your décor and with your jewelry. Why spend a ton of money on something that will only be worn or used once, when you can save the money (and maybe add it to your honeymoon fund)?

And keep in mind we offer styling counseling for brides as well, so don’t hesitate to call for our services!

How to Buy and Sell Your Gently Used Wedding Gown

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

Whether we like it or not, weddings are quite expensive – so it’s perfectly understandable why many brides and grooms are looking for ways to save money on their event (without sacrificing its beauty, uniqueness, or elegance).

Buying and/or selling a gently used wedding gown is a great way to add some saved money to your honeymoon piggy bank – but what are some of the things you should know about this?

We have some tips for you.


  • If you decide to buy a gently used wedding gown, you do it for a lot of reasons – but one of the most important perks is that doing this allows you to wear a designer wedding gown without breaking the bank. What is essential, though, is that you only do this from a reputable store that deals in previously worn wedding gowns. This way, you will make sure that the dress you are buying is actually what is marketed and that it has no major flaws, such as stains or tears.
  • As much as possible, try to find a slightly used wedding gown that was worn by someone with a similar body type to yours – this will allow you to save money on alterations.
  • If you decide to sell a wedding gown, keep in mind that you can get approximately 50% of its original value if the dress is in good shape and if it’s less than two years old. If your wedding gown is from a more famous designer label (such as Vera Wang, for example), you can expect future brides to pay as much as 60% of the dress’ original value.
  • To maximize the chances that you sell your wedding dress, be sure to take it to a professional cleaner after the wedding. Even if no visible stains appear on it, having it professionally cleaned will help you restore its original beauty and make it easier to market to future brides.

Looking for gently used wedding accessories to accompany your previously-loved dress? Or maybe looking to rent bridal accessories for a fraction of their retail price?

How to Save More Money for Your Honeymoon?

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

After all the wedding planning, after all the ups and downs of bringing together so many people (and so many details!), after the magical Big Day, all you will want is to retreat somewhere far from the madding crowd – just you and your significant other, spending time together, relaxing and building your first memories as a married couple.

Unfortunately, though, dream honeymoons don’t come cheap – so if your budget isn’t very generous, you will have to make sure you save enough money to have the honeymoon you deserve.

How to do that? We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to find out more.


  • Budget the wedding itself. Yes, it might feel difficult to do this especially given the high price of everything wedding-related. However, with attention to detail and determination, you can actually create a stunning event and not break the bank. For instance, you don’t need to serve very expensive food – most people will be actually happier with comfort foods (and they are very trendy right now too!).
  • Plan a smaller wedding. This is one of the very first things to consider when you want to stick to a restrictive budget. The larger your wedding is, the more you will have to pay for everything – from the venue itself to the food, drinks, and even the décor.
  • Be ready to make compromises for the honeymoon. There are so many ways to save money on the honeymoon itself and still get to live your dream tip on exotic lands! For starters, you could postpone your honeymoon to a time of the year that’s cheaper for your chosen destination (you really don’t HAVE TO leave right after the wedding, and there’s no actual rule to say that). Booking the plane tickets and the accommodation well ahead of time can also help you save big money. Staying at an AirBNB can be much less expensive than a 5-star hotel (and it can provide you with the same level of comfort). These are just some of the things you can do to plan a dream honeymoon on a tight budget!
  • Budget your look. No, you don’t have to dress in a cheap gown and wear plastic jewelry on your wedding day. Buying slightly used or simply renting them can actually save you thousands of dollars in total – and you can still get to wear designer items, just as you have always wanted to on your wedding day.
