Your Best Money Saving Moment?

Recommended Posts

So the Budget Bride thread got me to thinking about all the ways we can save money, but what was your best money saving moment so far?

 

I'm going to have to say that my shining moment was selling some leftover OOT bag items & envelopes and buying my shower dress on ebay with my earnings! I bought a White House Black Market Dress I've had my eye on since last fall for 80% off what it was going for originally, new with tags! YES!!!!

 

What's your best money saving moment so far in your planning?

I would say the best thing I did was search on-line for beachy wedding favors and OOT bag stuff and then scour e-bay for those items for a much cheaper price than I would have paid at an on-line store. It was time-consuming but well worth it.

I would have to say our best money saving moment was realizing that the wedding we want in the US would be too expensive because we would have too many people to invite. We then realized we can save money by having a destination wedding and still being able to invite everyone. But this is a given right? blush2.gif

I hope more people will post on this, this is a great thread! I haven't had one big money saving moment yet, but I have had a lot of small savings. I would say the best thing for me has been using coupons to save on OOT bags, I am getting to do a lot more than I would have if I had to pay for everything. Even $1 items can really add up. Also for our AHR we chose a venue that has tables, chairs, sound equpment and other things we would have had to rent separate. The venue was a little more than our 2nd choice, but it has paid for itself. Our dj is charging us half price since he doesn't have to bring his own equipment.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
