With the growing trend of small bridal parties, cocktail bridesmaid dresses and budget crunching, hitting up the sale racks is the way to go!  After doing a little shopping myself this past weekend, I realized how much you can save and still have your bridal party looking amazing for your big day!  And in most cases, looking completely unique.  All the dresses I am featuring today are currently on sale between $40 to $100!

Be sure to have an idea of your girls’ dress sizes.  Even if the dresses come in larger sizes, you can have them altered to fit.  This process takes some planning, especially if you want to find the best deals.  For example, if you’re having a fall or winter wedding you want to start looking in January & February before.  Also, during those months retailers are pushing sales hard after the holidays so it’s a great time to find deals.  While it takes planning, it’s well worth seeing savings of 25%-75% and I think your girls will thank you for it :)

Be sure to check out online sales and in-store sales.  I was in Anthropologie last week, and they have amazing dresses and skirts but their online selection is bare.  You can make a day of it with your bridesmaids and go shopping together!  This goes for groomsmen selections too.  Although, renting tuxes is still popular – buying suits or separates is just as common.  There are deals for quality suit & pant sets for $300 or less, it’s an investment but well worth it for your groom (especially if he doesn’t own a suit).

Don’t forget to have color swatches on-hand so you can reference them.  And be sure to check out shoes and accessories!
