Tip #5. Resale: On line and in stores. Someone I know got the most amazing dress from, are you ready for this, the Salvation Army. She had to have it cut down and even had it remade, just slightly. She paid $200 for a name brand dress and $150 for alterations. People were gaga! Nope, she wasn’t too proud! BravoBride.com is doing some really interesting sales on line.
Tip: You need to be an incredibly diligent shopper if you want to do this… but you can do it! And sometimes it’s worth it to step outside your comfort zone for the savings. And you can probably find a friend to help you. Friends actually like helping you with your wedding. Some people like planning weddings! Go figure!
