15+ Brave Brides Who Got Their Wedding Outfits for Pennies and Looked Stunning
One English tradition says that getting married on a Monday brings health, on a Tuesday brings wealth, while Wednesday is the best day to tie the knot. No matter what, not everyone is ready to wait until wealth favors them. The easiest way to accomplish this is to reconsider your approach to the big day and not overspend funds wherever possible.
After all, all brides are stunning and radiate happiness regardless of how much money they spend on their outfits. And we at Bright Side agree with this completely. The bonus at the end will tell you a story about how one girl decided to make the dress of her dreams by hand.
