THE WEDDING. It’s a big day that often comes with a big price tag. From the venue to the flowers, the music to the wedding cars and the bigticket items like the rings and the outfits.
Typically, brides spend an incredible amount of hours and money searching for the perfect frock.
A wedding dress can range in price from a couple of hundred through to thousands of dollars.
After the wedding, dresses are either put in storage or sold. However, it’s possible for brides to buy new dresses at a fraction of the retail cost in Weekend Shopper.
In fact, there’s a whole section devoted to Wedding & Formal Wear with a plethora of gowns on offer, including wedding accessories and bridesmaid dresses.
Even the ones that have previously been worn have only been worn once. So which ever way buyers look at it, there are bargains to be had.
Last weekend’s Shopper advertised more than 30 wedding dresses. Many of these items incorporated matching tiaras, shoes, trains and bridesmaids dresses.
Of these, five had never been worn and were priced from $300-$400. New wedding shoes and flowers were also advertised.
An Alfred Angelo rose coloured gown, size 10, never worn, in its original bag with tags provides an ideal and inexpensive bridesmaid outfit at the heavily discounted price of $100.
And let’s not forget the flower girls. An ensemble including a child’s white satin and organza dress, matching veil head dress and shoes sized 2-3 in excellent condition was selling for just $175 ONO.
The grooms are also catered for with suits advertised at $75 and trousers and shirts selling individually anywhere from $15 to $75.
