A Fashionable Wedding for the Frugal Bride

Every bride should feel like a princess on her wedding day.  A wedding is about making a commitment to spend the rest of your life with the partner that you love; that sort of milestone is worth celebrating in style.  But what happens when the wedding budget makes it hard to have that memorable occasion? Sometimes a bride goes over-budget on dress and needs to make cutbacks in other places; other times the budget is so small that no matter what, that princess feeling seems elusive.  I cannot in good conscience recommend compromising on the dress, but here are some other ways to be chic without breaking budget.

The Shoes:
If a bride chooses an unfortunate pair of shoes, whether due to lack of money or lack of taste, others will console her by saying that nobody pays any attention to the shoes. Lies.  A bride deserves perfection on her wedding day; how can a girl feel like a princess in ugly shoes?  This pair of Badgley Mischka sandals are, in fact, perfection.  Satin, chiffon, and tastefully arranged crystals combine to create and elegant, but also subtly sexy shoe that every bride will love.  The frugal fashionista knows that a bride on a budget cannot afford a pair of Badgley Mischka heels - after all, these sandals retail for $230.00.  However, at Beyond the Rack, these shoes are 56% off.  $99.99 is much more budget friendly.  

The Clutch: 

It is absolutely vital that a bride have a clutch purse on her wedding day.  Beyond any kind of ornamentation it may bring, a purse has great practical importance. On her wedding day, a bride is expected to speak with all of the guests at the wedding reception; she is the center of all attention.  As a result, emergency makeup, pocket stain remover, a compact etc. is necessary to avoid embarrassing incidents.  This OC Styles clutch found on Etsy is a classy way of carrying practical items.  One of the best parts is OC Styles will customize the bow color upon request to match the color scheme of your wedding.  The absolute best part? The $23.99 price tag won't empty your wallet.  

The Hair:

How can any bride feel like a princess without the right headpiece?  This frosted silver and crystal headpiece from Angela's Boutique is both delicate and regal.  Without being gaudy it captures the fairy-tale spirit that little girls everywhere fantasize about.  It feels like magic to me personally, because this headpiece is only $40.00.  When a bride can feel like a princess for only $40.00, she can feel relaxed about the other frustrating details when planning the wedding.  

Happy Weddings, Everybody :)
