Bridal Bargains

It’s one of the biggest decisions you’ll make—about your wedding day, anyway! The question of what to wear is heavy on every bride’s mind, and most women know that it isn’t cheap to get the perfect dress.

While the wedding industry typically stays strong in an economic slump, some industry insiders are reporting that the worries that have lead people to curb spending in other areas is finally trickling down to the bridal market.

Usually, a bride will spare no expense and choose the dress she loves, regardless of budget, but these days women are asking for deals and shopping around more. If you’re planning a wedding and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, consider a tea-length dress or even a bridesmaid’s dress done in ivory or white (if you’re a non-traditional gal, opt for a pop of color.) There are plenty of ways to look beautiful on your big day without spending a fortune. [CNN]
