How To Afford Fancy Items For a Fraction of The Cost?
Do you ever wonder how certain brides and grooms can afford elaborate items and not others? Did you know that some items they have are rented?? Yes they are!!!! Did you know that half of the elegant weddings you see in the movies have fake or borrowed elements? I bet you didn't know that? In the last 5 years many people have divulged ways to have to elegant bling, designer gowns and fabulous decor on a budget. I am firm believer that we are not raised with the ability to think outside the box when it comes to designing our wedding. There is a small percentage of brides who may have thought of how this one day should look since the day they were born. For the 99.9% of us, we have no clue. I have to admit, I am one of the 99% who had no idea what she wanted even though I worked in the industry. A White wedding with some floral seemed like a great idea! I never strived to have the best, I didn't have a favorite song or color. Honestly, I had to wing it. I just said yes to everyone's ideas... :) Now I didn't follow everyone's advice, I just said yes to shut them up. Another tip you should keep in your back pocket! When I hear about new trends or start one, I always am the first to share my treasures with the public. Why should such fabulous secrets be kept to myself? So let's start with some fun tools you should know about... Did you know you can rent a gown? A REAL high end designer gown that could have cost in the double digit thousands for a few hundred? These stores are out there and continue to expand slowly...Here are a few on the East Coast and I promise to list others as they become available to me! They even rent bridesmaids gowns too!!! http://www.alexandriasformal.com/page/page/1394292.htm This link has tons of options! http://www.weddingdressmarket.com/search.php?Start=340&c=2&AgentID=&search_city=&search_state=&search_country=&min=&max=&year1=&year2=&vehicle=&p=&r= Did you know that you can rent a cake??? You can! They look so fabulously real and having a great tasting sheet cake in the kitchen for serving? Whose going to know? I have been to many bakeries and I have to say, I cannot tell the difference. Don't say anything, but at one bakery I did try to lick the cake..I thought the baker was kidding! Ha!
