Today, we have guest blogger, Magalie from a very inspirational wedding blog, The Demoiselle sharing some awesome resources for budget savvy brides. Don’t know where to go to find budget friendly wedding ideas? Magalie is here to guide the way…
I love bridal magazines and blogs that feature platinum dream weddings as much as the next girl (probably more so being the "slightly" obsessed wedding blogger that I am). But let’s keep it real: fairytale weddings planned by high end event producers get the creative juices flowing but, it takes more than just ideas when you’re working with a minimal budget. You need resources that can make those ideas come alive!
If you’ve got champagne tastes but your budget isn’t overflowing don’t fear! We’ve compiled a list of top 5 online picks for finding deals on beautiful things for brides with discerning tastes.
Emmaline Bride – Emmaline Bride takes the handmade philosophy and tailors it specifically to brides. You’ll find bridal accessories galore here from glamorous garters to adorable "just married" signs.
Save on Crafts – A best kept event planners secret, this is arguably the best online wedding and reception supply store. Offering quality tulle, branches, birdcages, feathers, and more, if you’re looking for beautiful and affordably priced decor you’ve hit the jackpot!
Pearl River Mart – A well-known downtown Manhattan neighborhood store, their online outlet offers a lovely array of Chinese goods that range from practical to chic to exotic. The parasols are a personal favorite. Elegant, chic, and versatile, they fit almost every wedding theme.
Wedzu – A brand new online marketplace designed exclusively with indie brides in mind! It’s filled with unique wedding goodies from a carefully curated selection of handmade and indie designers.
Etsy – By now everyone’s up on this treasure trove of handmade goodness but here’s the rundown (just in case you’re not). This online community encourages "buying, selling and living handmade," a wholesome motto that translates to huge savings – often on one-of-a-kind items that might otherwise cost a fortune!
Now that you know where to go it’s time to channel Tim Gunn and "Make It Work!" Happy hunting!
