Must get book!!! - Bridal Bargins (debuted on Oprah)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Everyone on here as been so nice sharing their tips and tricks I thought I should post on here about a book I am reading called Bridal Bargains by Denise and Alan Fields. This book got popular quick when the Oprah show picked it up.


The book basically tells all the things the bridal industry does to separate brides from their money. Some of thing things I have read in here blow my mind! One of the recurring topics is the "Bridal Markup" and how just by saying wedding, business will bump up their prices.


It talks about the tricks bridal stores plays when you are dress shopping/buying and how to get your dress at a HUGE discount. They also talk about flowers and how to get them at much lower prices. How to bargain with different vendors... Ok so the list could go on and on since the book has 450 pages and it deals with everything from flowers, to dresses, to venues.


I hope this helps everyone. The book was the BEST $15 I have ever spent. Carla :)

It doesn't surprise me that there is a huge markup on anything that is wedding related. Why not if they can get away with it, right? And people wonder why it is soooooo expensive to get married now a days. It is crazy. Thanks for sharing the info on the book. There will be a lot of people that can hopefully benefit from it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
