6 Sneaky Ways to Save on Your Wedding Day Accessories

Get ready to plan like a pro.
Once you've budgeted for that dream venue, your perfect gown, and catering for - oh, you know, just 200 of your closest friends and family - you're probably looking for places where you can save a pretty penny. Well, if you can't scale back on the big things, it's time to turn your attention to the smaller things that drain your bank account. Take a look at these six sneaky ways to save big on your wedding day accessories, from pearls to purses.

2
Borrow, borrow, borrow.

Why stop atsomethingborrowed? Talk to your mom, your 'maids, and other close pals, to see if anyone can lend you a wedding veil, jewelry, and other accessories. It's wallet-friendly and super eco-chic, plus borrowed items are meaningful in a way that off-the-rack stuff can't match.

Be careful with bling.

4
Be Practical About Your Purse.

Chances are that you'll hardly even hold it! If you've got somewhere on-site to stash your license, credit card, and lipstick, skip it altogether. If you need to carry a clutch, try a discount website and snag something you'll be able to wear again.

5
Shop now, Save later.

Hit the sample sales.

If you've just gotta have designer everything, do your best to plan ahead. Most brands have sample sales or end-of-season blow-outs where you can snag some good stuff for great prices. Keep your ears low to the ground, and you could walk away with some seriously high fashion.
