Four Important Wedding Tips
FOUR TIPS ON BUYING A BRIDESMAID DRESS
This is a very important dress we're talking about-the second most important of the evening. It must be elegant, beautiful, carefully designed and yet not so wonderful that it steals attention from the bride to be. Most of all, it must be affordable! Whether someone's paying for the outfits or if each bridesmaid is buying her own, there's no sense in wasting money. You could put that saved money towards one more bridal shower gift. Consider four ways to save money on bridesmaid dresses.
1. Know Where To Shop
First, consider common sense. You need to buy something to do with bridal outfits? A bridal salon. Now start to think of other options. The bridal salons know what you need and thus raise their prices in expectation of your business. Look for special sales in department stores. Beyond that, look for online vendors who offer fair discounts at up to 40% off. For the most part online vendors can comfortably discount merchandise more so than a department store because online vendors don't have to worry about overhead.
2. Order All The Dresses At Once
This not only prevents any mishaps in fabric dye (sometimes when you order groups of one-color dresses separately and they don't end up the same color) it also can save you money. When you purchase dresses from the same place the store usually gives you a good discount or perhaps free alternations.
3. Make A Copy
Some bridesmaid dresses can cost well over $300.00. Even if you love the dress that high price might be too much to overcome. If this is the case, then find a local seamstress, show her a picture of the gown, and ask how much she would charge. You may be surprised to find out that she only charges half the price.
4. Think Smart In Shoes
When thinking about dyed shoes remember first, that it's not necessary for all brides to have the exact same type of shoe. In terms of fabrics and heels. The only thing that must remain consistent is that the footwear should all be the exact same dye (done at the same time) and the toe characters should also be the same. (For example all opened or all closed) Speaking of color, remember that if the bridesmaid gown is dark, then black or navy shoes will suffice even if not a perfect match. If the dresses are light colored then white or cream color shoes would match. Don't spend more money on shoes then you have to. Instead, work with what you have.
Remembering these tips will buy you an affordable, beautiful bridesmaid dress.
