Scottish Wedding Theme on a Budget
I really want to have a Scottish wedding theme but the outfits (for example tartan dresses for the bridesmaid) are so expensive and even the fabric seems a lot as well. Could you please help me with this.
I am a true believer in planning and budgeting. So this is what I propose.
As I do not know how many bridesmaids, the date of your wedding, how many guests, etc, and all the variables that make every wedding unique I am going to give you some general guidelines.
First of all you need to set a budget, and stick to it. The further away your wedding date is , the better for your planning if you are in a tight budget, as this will give you extra time to do some research.
Yes, if you want to have a full Scottish theme reality is, is going to be expensive. So you need to make a decision and think outside the box.
You can research several sites that sell used or second hand wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses so you can buy them at a fraction of the cost. Take into account that everything that is noted ”bridal” will have a high price. You can also search sites for evening gowns, cocktail gowns, and so on to find your bridesmaids dresses. These places are not conventionally thought for wedding attire , so the prices can be lower.
Do your bridesmaids truly need a full silk tartan dress? You can dress them in a regular solid dress and accentuate it with a tartan accessory, such as a sash, an applique, hair clip, etc with a tartan design.
Fabric flowers of hair accessories can bring the Scottish influence to any solid attire.
This is a great idea that can help you achieve the look for your theme at a fraction of the cost.
Hope that helped you and got your creative juices flowing, at least a little bit. Please mail me back with more details if I could be of any more help.
All the best!
