Last-Minute Luxury Gifts for Her

We are getting down to the wire here, with just a little over a week before Christmas. It can be hard to find the perfect gift, but it doesn't have to be. With online shopping, you can find some really great items she'll love, and ones that  don't cost a fortune either.

Etsy can be a great place to find something beautiful and unique. Some items on Etsy have a longer processing time, but some, particularly the jewelry and candle shops, tend to have things ready-made. Thus you're bound to find some very beautiful and unique gifts. You just have to check the deadline for Christmas in each shop's announcements. Some will even work with you on rush orders, so it never hurts to ask!

The Secret to Affordable Wedding Apparel

http://www.promtimes.co.uk/bd0470.html

I've had a few friends and relatives over the years who scrimp and save and even take up extra part-time jobs to afford the wedding of their dreams, but it doesn't have to cost so much to have a beautiful wedding. After I wore a bridesmaid dress last year that I had ordered online for a fraction of the cost, I feel like this is the best-kept secret in finding affordable yet beautiful gowns.

There are countless discount sites now for prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and even wedding dresses. I know, it's every girl's dream to have the boutique experience of trying on dresses with friends and family. Finding "the one" is just as important when it comes to the dress as it is to finding the right guy. But you can still have that experience while ordering something much more affordable online.

It's even easier to go about it this way now that the biggest trend for bridesmaids is to be coordinated but not necessarily matching; to pick a common color, length, and fabric but to be more flexible on the silhouette. When I was a bridesmaid for my best friend recently, we went to bridal shops so I could try on all of the navy chiffon gowns, for example. After trying on some very beautiful dresses, we both decided I'd go with a strapless sweetheart chiffon pleated gown. As long as I stuck with that guideline, it didn't matter where I bought it from. I ended up finding a gown similar to the $250.00 dress for under $100.00 online.

You can even get a beautiful wedding gown for around $100 on these dress sites. I would much rather do than than spend thousands. Another thing I noticed about these sites is that a lot of the chiffon bridesmaid gowns, often priced under $100 and even under $50, are available in white - the perfect affordable option for the bride who wants a simple dress.

Getting the dress in just the right size is a concern, but it doesn't have to be. These sites ask for your specific measurements. That is often how it goes with the pricey bridal boutiques as well; they ask for your measurements and place an order for the dress. When it arrives, you may or may not have to get alterations.You wind up with the same quality and a beautiful dress for a fraction of what it would cost you to get it from a bridal shop. Spend all of that saved money on a fun honeymoon, or something really important, like a live string quartet!
