Wedding dresses are not cheap. When you are browsing through dress shops, remember to look a dresses that are not officially categorized as wedding dresses. You might even consider whether a dress designed for bridesmaids could meet your needs. With the lower base price, you can likely also afford alterations to the style of the dress and still come in under the price of a traditional wedding gown.
Do not under-eat in an effort to fit into your dress. Starving yourself or resorting to unhealthy weight loss tactics causes you to feel dizzy, weak, and light-headed. You wouldn’t want to pass out. You would do better to choose a dress that has a corset back, as this allows you to adjust the fit with out the need for tailoring.
Tie in small decorative items to your wedding decor. Use a similar ribbon for your bouquet as that on your gown or your centerpieces. Your wedding day is special and important so you want to put in the effort for even the littlest details.
Order small individual portions of cake from a local bakery if the thought of spending the equivalent of your honeymoon on your cake does not appeal to you.

Use this advice to be assured that your wedding is well planned and relaxing. This will make for a time to remember. If you have planned ahead, your wedding will be a smooth and memorable transition into the next phase of your life beside the person you hold dearest.
