Spend Or Save

If you are anything like most brides you are going to have to make concessions when it comes to the things that you want for your wedding! Unfortunately, no matter how tough, it must happen if you expect to keep feeding yourself!

But which areas should you spend on and which should you save?

Hair & Make-Up

You want to look like a glam on your wedding day, and there is a very thin line between drag makeup and the amount that you need to look stunning in your wedding photos. We suggest that you SPEND the extra to get someone who really knows what they are doing. A flawless look will also do wonders to settle your pre-wedding jitters.


Something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new.

Sound familiar? Mother-of-the-bride and the maid-of-dishonour are usually in charge or organising these extras for you, so forgo the lavish jewels and instead SAVE by awaiting the gifts they have in stall for you. Little hints as to what you want never go astray, and seeing as they are the biggest and closest female influences we are sure they will get it right!


Keeping your guest satisfied is half the battle. Ensure that if there is finger food there is enough to go around, more often then not half the guests end up starving at the end of the night because they weren't in the path of waiters. This is one thing you would want to SPEND on because you don't want your wedding to be remembered by your guests as the one where you didn't feed them; and you don’t want to deal with a function room full of wasted guests because they had nothing to soak up the alcohol with.


While flowers are stunning and an abundance would bring the outdoors into your indoor reception the price can be phenomenal. Don’t be afraid to spend on stunning bouquets but limit the centrepieces and instead SAVE with candles and simple greenery.

The Dress Now ladies we are not giving you permission to take out a car sized loan, but this is the day you have always dreamt of so make sure you have no regrets when it comes to the dress, and spend, spend, SPEND! And considering the market for pre-loved wedding gowns, we're sure you will be able to find someone to take it off your hands.

Photography & Videography

Now we know that we might be biased but you really cannot put a price on these memories, plus it’s just one of those things that you can’t get back! You want to be able to live the night again, and again. This is one SPEND that is a real investment.
