Miss Bush Sample Sale - Budget Tips

Budget planning for weddings can one of the least glamorous aspects of the build up to the big day. Abstract round numbers are added to spreadsheets which sometimes seem perfectly adequate until you go shopping only to discover differently.

A couple of the prices that I hear on the phone as figures set for the dress are £500 and £1000. I know that this is a fair amount of money for a dress but with the escalating costs of fabrics, production, carriage and VAT that manufacturers, designers and retailers have to factor into their very luxurious service it is becoming harder to meet at wedding boutique level.

Until we have sample sales...

Maggie Sottero Polina UK 18 Ivory SRP £980 Sale Price £600

Sample sales can be one of the rare opportunities to look at the spreadsheet and declare a saving! As I know from most brides this usually means a diversion of funds. Consider the dress above - priced at £600 including a specialst dry clean and remedial work if needed - the 'saved' £380 would easily cover a pair of Pink 'Girly' shoes, a Polly Edwards headpiece and a long simple veil...

Pink 'Girly' shoes - selected sizes only £40
