Wedding Gowns On A Budgetposted on 11 December 2009 | posted in Handbag and fashion Articles
Today it seems that the cost of a wedding has got completely out of hand. It is meant to be the happiest day of their lives for a young couple, not just for the bride who dreams of a fairy tale wedding. Keep things simple, simple is more chic and sophisticated.
When it comes to the wedding dress, do you really need layer upon layer of frills and thousands of sequins to make you look beautiful? Every bride is beautiful on her wedding day, no matter what the cost of her dress.
Beauty comes from within, a bride will glow, her eyes will sparkle and she will have an aura of happiness surrounding her. Why detract from this natural beauty with frills and finery? The ‘perfect dress ‘ will only end up in the back of the wardrobe in its protective covering, never to be seen again., but the bill for it will still be waiting. Is it really worth getting into debt for?
Why not go for a cheaper option?
Choose the plainest, simplest and cheapest dress on a bridal shops rail. It is what you add to the dress and accessorise with that makes the dress unique. You can buy ribbon encrusted with sequins and jewels that can be added under the bust line. Add a row or two of tiny seed beads to the hem so that they catch the light and sparkle as the dress moves.
If you choose a Victorian style neckline, wear your hair up and add a sparkling tiara and long glittery earrings and shoes to match.
If your chosen wedding gown is an off the shoulder design, wear your hair down and add a string of pearls or jewelled choker. If the dress is a figure hugging fit, add a belt that you have decorated with beads and sequins.
Your bouquet will add a touch of soft colour, again keep it simple. For a touch of elegance or extra glam, carry a bridal bag - they don’t have to cost a fortune. Choose from plain satin to sparkling sequins or beaded perfection.
At the end of the day does it really matter if your dress cost less than other brides? Surely the important part of the day is the joining of two people in love.
Remember, only you need know how little the wedding dress cost.
