Fashion Inspiration

14 May



Just to set things straight I am not getting married! But my best friend of 18 years is! I remember as 6 year olds cutting out pics from mum’s Vogue of our ideal wedding dresses and grooms! Well my Bestie’s big day is fast approaching and as a student saving for her (and her future husband’s) first home money is tight. Like most brides B wants things things to be perfect and her wedding dress is no exception BUT $4,000 for a dream dress sadly isn’t feasible. After a chat with our recently newlywed friend we decided to search for cheap wedding dresses online. Ebay was the first place we searched, but I guess a lot of other soon to be brides had the same idea as bidding got pretty intense and she keep getting out bid. That’s when we decided to search online and discovered that some online stores have gorgeous wedding dresses for under $200 and with a bit of altering the these dresses are a budget friendly way of finding the perfect dress. Here are the two she is tossing up between, both astonishingly under $150!

Dress 1. Dress 2. 

Do you have any budget friendly Wedding tips? I’d love to hear them! Becky xo

    Great post! I remember i got my wedding dress in a shop that had a huge catalogue, so it wasn’t expensive at all. They had a good selection spread and i really liked my choices :) xoxo #GIG

      Never thought about doing this, but I think it’s a great idea!

    I too collect photos of my dream wedding dress, however there are times that I realized that I’m sure will end mixing the designs or not having one from them at all. I believe it’s not about the dress that matters most in a wedding, it’s the moment of love :)

    wow,the dress is so cheap! :O but i’d recommend the 2nd dress to your friend since it has alot more detailing than the 1st one. #GIG

    • Becky K. May 14, 2013 at 9:27 pm #

      Thanks I prefer the second one too :)

    If I were to choose, I’d go for the 2nd picture (to the right). I wish I could participate in this conversation too. haha I always fancied about wedding gowns, I think I told you already. It’s such a great news that your bestie is getting married. Are you going to be her maid of honor? xoxo :)

    • Becky K. May 14, 2013 at 10:13 pm #

      I like the second one best too :) So excited for her!
      Her sister is the Maid of Honour but I’m a bridesmaid and got to design the wedding invites:)
      I’d post them but they I don’t think she’ll want her details all over the internet! haha

        That’s a terrific news. I’m sure you’re very excited! Wish her my very best! xoxo :)

    Both those dresses are gorgeous and a steal at under $150. Between the both I love #2

    • Becky K. May 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

    OMG, this is one of my past times! Planning my wedding in my head! LOL! It’s one of the reasons why I made a Pinterest account, to document my ideas for my future wedding :) Love the 2nd dress, btw! :)

    oh wow…the first image is so romantic…love flowers and the white dress in the background.

    The dresses are beautiful. Be sure to splurge on the most important parts of the wedding. Your friend can go low budget on the rest and still feel like she has the special touches for her big day.

  13. sitacarolina May 15, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    I Think the choice would be a question of which flatters her figure more? For example, I do like the 2nd one better but I can’t pull it off. If she can pull it off well, 2nd one all the way!

    Hi Becky first of all thank for passing by my blog. Now I got married almost 2 years ago and yes it takes lots of money!!! I made a lot of things myself whit my hubby and my family, like the wedding invitations, the souvenirs, the table numbers, the favors, I mean a lot!!! I got a bunch of ideas from the Martha Stweart wedding page, and a lot has printables too. Hope this be helpful :)

    I am happily married but didn’t wear a pretty long white wedding gown on my wedding day! It was a civil wedding, and both me and my husband was wearing white longsleeves and a ripped denim pants. LOL! We both changed to a coat & tie and a long red chiffon dress for the reception though! GOOD TIMES!! x Love, Cynthia

    hmm.. DIY some decors for weddings or the invitation for sure it will save a lot.. hehe

  26. Kajsa Josephine May 21, 2013 at 2:52 am #

    I´d personally go for the second dress, as it´s smoother in the chest area. Classic and elegant.

  27. Nina Onthemoon May 21, 2013 at 5:28 pm #

    well congrats to your best friend! when i bought my wedding dress i knew i didn’t want to spend a lot of money on it since i was only going to wear it once!

  28. micheatsandshops May 22, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    My friend too got her wedding dress in online stores. Some sell designer pieces for around $200, which is not bad :)

  29. Cindy Tong May 26, 2013 at 2:02 am #

    i love dress one…the flower is so lovely!
