Happy Friday, I am looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend.
There are a billion (yes billion) ways to save some dough on your wedding day. I have found several websites which give some great tips and suggestions.
One of my favorite sites is Once Wed which has a fantastic used wedding gown section. You can search for particular designers, or by size, or condition of the gown. I love the fact that many of the brides post pictures of them in their wedding gown. As with any big decision (and I don't think they get any bigger than buying a wedding gown) make sure you do your due diligence and contact the seller so you have some form of recourse if the transaction falls through. I think that it is amazing that women love their gowns so much that they wan to share them with other women to enjoy as much as they had.
Another site I LOVE LOVE LOVE is Brides Against Breast Cancer. This organization travels around the US selling worn and last season's leftover gowns to future brides to be. A percentage of the proceeds are used to make wishes come true for women losing the fight against breast cancer. This is a fantastic opportunity to get a great deal on the dress of your dreams, while making someone's final wish come true. The best part of all, Brides Against Breast Cancer is in Rhode Island RIGHT NOW!!!! EEEEEEKKKKK!!! I can not contain myself, who doesn't want to run around and try on wedding dresses all day??? Make sure to go HERE to pre-register. This is an event that is sure to be promising, and not to be missed!
