Host: Fine Living Network’s Smart Tips with online shopping expert Helen Malani.
Helen Malani: Did you know the average wedding costs about $28,000.00. You can save big by shopping smart online. The all important wedding dress, rather than spending a bundle with a high end boutique consider shopping online at one of the big bucks national chains or department stores. You can even buy a dress straight from China, where most of them are made anyway.
Best of all, many of the dresses are made to order. What about those bridesmaids? Well, we tend to buy off the rack 364 days out of the year, so consider doing the same on your wedding day.
If you want to save money, stay away from bridal shoes. Dance shoes for example come an old time for styles and are made to be comfortable. Ready to say, ‘I do’ to big discounts, just type budget weddings into your search engine.
