Wedding Dress

We're not telling you to blow your whole wedding budget on a ridiculously-priced designer dress, but we think you should find something that perfectly fits your figure and personality. A cheap, off-the-rack dress isn't always a great deal if it doesn't fit well and ends up making you feel uncomfortable all day. Try to get a tailor-made WEDDING DRESS that will make you feel as great as you look.

You'll be on your feet for hours on your wedding day, and cheap shoes just won't cut it. Help yourself and get a pair of good-quality shoes that won't leave you in pain even after wearing them for the whole day. They don't even need to be shoes made especially for weddings. In fact, we like the idea of getting beautiful, comfortable shoes that you can still wear to other events in the future. Believe us, your feet will thank you later.

Hiring an inexperienced makeup artist is an affordable and tempting choice, but you shouldn't risk looking less than your best on your wedding day. Who needs time to deal with foundation that's two shades too light or unsuitable makeup that melts under the sun during an outdoor wedding? A professional makeup artist will use high quality products and colours that suit your facial structure, wedding theme, and colour palette.

Don't ever skimp on these two. While the other wedding elements will only last for one day, your wedding documentation will last forever. Surely you want to smile instead of cringe whenever you see photos of your wedding many years from now. Wedding photography and videography often come in a package, and you always need to be extra careful when deciding who to hire. Well-known and experienced names are usually a good bet, but you can also catch talented a rising star. Just don't forget to check their reviews and portfolios beforehand.

Choosing a better venue can actually help you save a lot on decoration. A beautiful venue might cost higher than a more humdrum one, but it won't need too many embellishments. Having a bigger budget for your venue also means you're free to choose a place that holds special memories for you and your partner, or a unique space that suits your wedding theme perfectly.

You can always find plenty of different options for your floral decoration, but your wedding bouquet is a different story. If you have a specific kind of flower you've always dreamed of, don't hesitate to get it. After all, your bouquet should reflect your taste and personality, and also go together well with your dress and wedding theme.
