News 4's Melissa Holmes found some tips and secrets on how tosave money on wedding accessories.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, somethingblue. When it comes to saving money on wedding accessories,something borrowed is the key.
A bride can easily save hundreds by not buying a veil, butborrowing her mother's veil instead. Or ditch the veil completelyand go trendy with an inexpensive silk or fresh flower in the hair.Attach a hair comb to a grandmother's brooch and it can double as abeautiful vintage headpiece.
Wedding jewelry, the necklace, earrings and bracelet canreally add up. Borrowing a loved one's pearls or diamonds is notjust emotional, it's also economical.
Wedding shoes might look nice, but they are ridiculouslyexpensive. $150- $200 easily for a pair of shoes, and they're notthat comfortable. My advice, go to a regular shoe store during thesummer to get a white pair of shoes, and you can wear them again.
As for a garter, make it yourself. If you can't sew, youprobably know someone who does. It'll save $25 to $50 and when itcomes to a wedding, the it's the little details that really addup.
Holmes learned when planning her own wedding recently, that thisis the time when a bride really needs to reach out to her lovedones for help. Don't feel uncomfortable asking to borrow things,because those people really feel honored you're asking them to playto a part in your big day.
