Weddings: Say “I Do” to Savings

Are you getting married soon?  Perhaps you’re going to a wedding this spring or summer? Always a bridesmaid? Great, we’ve got you covered!

This week and next, The Sale Rack will be bringing you the latest & best deals on all things wedding related – from  designer wedding dresses & men’s suits to gorgeous footwear for brides & bridesmaids alike. Plus handbags, accessories, gift ideas, paper goods and more. Whether you’re the bride, in the bridal party, or a guest we will have money-saving suggestions for you. Hey, a wedding during a recession just might not be that bad after all!

InStyle Weddings has picked the top dress trends for this season’s brides and bridesmaids. We’re loving their choice of “floral appliques” for brides as seen below in the Melissa Sweet Fredrique gown, as well as the silk charmeuse one-shoulder dress, also by Melissa Sweet, that falls under the “modern satin” trend for bridesmaids. And of course “strapless”  for both brides & bridesmaids is always glamorous and dramatic. For brides, asilk satin strapless fit and flare gown with ribbon and crystal embellished Alencon Lace, by Priscilla of Boston, and for bridesmaids a satin strapless knee-length dress with diagonally draped bodice  from Vineyard. All of these dresses and more can be found at our favorite luxury bridal destination, Priscilla of Boston.
