Bridal Bustiers - The hidden costs of a wedding can easily become over the top and overwhelm any bride. Looking your best on your special day is a top priority, but the costs of your dress, hair, makeup, manicure, and jewelry can quickly add up, before you even think of lingerie.
Your bridal bustier can be wallet friendly and still make you feel gorgeous on your big day with these simple tips for savings. Save the extra cash for pretty honeymoon negligees and intimates instead of breaking the bank on a corset that you’ll probably only wear once. Here’s how to avoid spending an epic fortune on your bridal bustier.
Take advantage of retailer’s seasonal sales by starting your lingerie shopping well ahead of your wedding date. Hone in on the pieces you want and then wait for stores big sales, which often happen semi-annually. Giving yourself lots of time means you can afford to wait and scoop up your bridal bustier when it goes on sale.
Modern synthetic fabrics are a far cry from stiff, itchy polyester of the past. Ultra soft microfiber, micro satin, and stretch charmeuse are all great choices for beautiful bridal lingerie, without the hefty price tag of real silk. You can still get the special feeling of wearing luxurious lingerie on your special day, without spending a fortune.
No one is going to see your bridal bustier, except your new husband, and chances are that he won’t be looking at it for long.
Skip costly details like hand beading and hand appliquéd lace, which can easily drive the cost of your bustier through the roof. Instead, save those lavish details for your dress and show them off to all of your guests. A simpler bustier style is a timeless choice that costs much less than an elaborate piece.
As soon as the word “bridal” is attached to something, the prices skyrocket because retailers know that brides will shell out a small fortune to feel special on their wedding day.
Avoid over-inflated prices and simply shop the regular lingerie section, looking for whites, blush tones, or shimmery champagne bustiers that have the same romantic and elegant look as bridal pieces without the outrageous markup.
Hit the stores and try on several bustiers until you find the style and size you want. Then go home, get online, and search for the same piece at a sale price.
With the Internet at your fingertips you have instant access to retailers all over the world who carry your favorite lingerie brands, and you can often find someone who is offering the bustier of your dreams at a special price.
In addition, pay attention to special promo codes by signing up for sales alerts from your favorite online retailers.
Don’t snub department store brands or mass retailers because you’re set on wearing designer lingerie.
Many lower priced brands have bustiers that are just as pretty as high-end designers, if you’re willing to take a look.
Getting hung up on wearing designer labels means you can miss out on bridal bustiers that are just as lovely and do the job without inflated prices.
Avoid spending an epic fortune on your wedding day lingerie by staying open minded in your search for the perfect bustier.
