Annalise from Savvy Brides lets us in on her secrets on How to be a Savvy Spender
Wedding planning can be quite overwhelming, especially when you start tallying up the costs. So when it comes to finding your wedding dress and accessories, there are savvy ways to save money without compromising your style.
Let’s face it; the wedding dress is an exciting (but expensive) part of the wedding planning process. This is where the store Savvy Brides (www.savvybrides.com.au) comes to the rescue and has three D’s every bride wants to hear. Designer. Discounted. Dresses. Savvy Brides is a bridal boutique, which specialises in selling pre-loved designer gowns at a discounted price.
Whether you are searching for an Australian iconic label like Alex Perry or Steven Khalil or are after an international legend like Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta, Savvy Brides will find the perfect designer gown for you.
Although no girl would say no to being draped in diamonds, it’s important to be realistic about how you will accessorise on your wedding day. When it comes to jewellery, you don’t need to go overboard with your spending. The jewellery label Samantha Wills create beautiful bridal jewellery which will perfect your wedding look without costing a fortune. Let’s remember ladies that you already have the ultimate piece of jewellery to go with your dress, and that’s the engagement ring.
For the budget brides who aren’t sure they even want to spend money on jewellery, that’s where the family comes in. Have a look to see what your mother or grandmother have. Not only will you save some money, but also you can tick that ‘something borrowed’ off the list. Win, win!
The Final Touches:
You have the dress and you have jewellery but do you have those finishing touches to complete your wedding look? Adding a headpiece or cuff can be just the thing you need to feel ready to strut down the aisle. But don’t worry, this isn’t going to cost as much as you think if you look in the right places. Anna Campbell is an up and coming designer who not only designs wedding gowns, but also designs accessories. Discover vintage inspired tulle headbands and beaded cuffs and combs for less than $200.
Don’t think of it as budgeting, but rather being savvy with your savings without even having to compromise style or beauty. Who knew saving money could look so good?
