10 Amazingly Cheap Wedding Favors For Thrifty Brides

“Do Wedding Favors Need To Be Expensive?”

10 inexpensive wedding favors

If you’re like many of today’s brides then you’ll be looking for ways to save money on your wedding, and finding cheap wedding favors is a great way to cut costs! You’ll also love the inexpensive wedding gowns, and bridesmaid dresses from OuterInner too!
For now though let’s look at 10 really inexpensive wedding favors that would still put big smiles on your guests’ faces!

“I Want To Save Money, But I Don’t Wan’t To Be Seen As Cheap!”

You’re quite right. No bride wants her guests to walk away from a lovely day thinking that more could have been spent on wedding favors, so it’s important to know which kinds of gifts are inexpensive, yet still very popular. Here’s where we come in…

1. Candy Wedding Favors

Candies come in so many varieties, and when put into a small jar or bag are a colorful and sweet way to remember a nice wedding! Candies aren’t expensive to begin with, but bought in bulk from a wholesaler they’d be even cheaper and perhaps you could mix and match some different flavors?

2. Picture Frames

Many couples have taken to giving their guests a picture frame containing a personalised picture of themselves. It’s a lovely memento, and could be used to say ‘thank you’ by inserting that kind of picture. Picture frames can of course be obtained cheaply from most homeware stores.

3. Candles

Candles are an attractive, and if scented, pleasant-smelling gift that most guests would like in their home. You could choose special wedding styles, or buy them in bulk at a low price from somewhere like Ikea.

4. Home-made Jams

There are few wedding favors cheaper than home-made, and since you’ve put your own time and effort into making this lovely jam your guests will appreciate it all the more! Ideal for rustic weddings, or seasonal weddings when using fruit that’s in season.

5. Make A Charitable Donation

If you have a charity that’s particularly close to your heart then you could use your wedding favor budget to make a donation on behalf of yourselves and your guests. Each guest could then be given a donation certificate instead of a gift, or you could team this up with another small favor, such as candies.

6. Mini Spa Set Wedding Favors

Putting together a small gift basket of bath and spa products doesn’t have to be expensive if you use miniature, hotel-sized, products. You’ll also be able to choose from a selection and put together quite a personalized basket. If this is too ‘spendy’ for all of your guests, you could consider giving them only to your bridesmaids.

7. Personalized Bookmarks

Another ultra budget option, if you’re good on the computer you can design and print off your own personalized bookmarks celebrating your lovely day!
I suggest adding a picture of yourselves, your wedding date, and perhaps a favorite poem or sonnet into a landscape column in your word document, printing it off as many times as needed at somewhere like Kinko’s onto 8×11 card, and using this as your bookmark!

8. Tiny Plants

A lot of couples like to give their guests a small and cute plant, like a succulent, and this can also be used to stand up their place card on the table at the reception. As they take care of the plant at home it will remind them of your lovely wedding!

9. Home-made Cookies Or Cakes

If you fancy yourself as quite the baker, why not put your skills to work and make a big batch of yummy cookies or brownies? They’re delicious, cheap, and fun. Once again, your guests will appreciate that they have been made by your own hands!

cookies wedding favors

10. Gift Bags

The great thing about many of these wedding favors is that they are cute, small, and inexpensive, so you could actually combine 2 or 3 into a ‘goodie bag’ and give these out. I like the idea of using burlap sacks, especially for spring, summer, or rustic weddings!

Though not the ‘color of the year,’ royal blue bridesmaid dresses are also another popular color in 2014.

6. Lettuce Wraps

OuterInner’s Guide To Choosing Your Perfect Prom Dresses In 2014!

How To Choose Perfect Prom Dresses In 2014!

choosing your perfect prom dresses

Prom season is upon us and we know picking prom dresses that you’ll love and stand out in is a difficult task, so we are giving some of our top tips on finding the perfect prom dresses here.

1. Focus On Your Best Features.

What are your best features? It could be your curves, legs, or bust. It doesn’t matter, we’re all different, but it will really help your look to choose prom dresses that highlight these features!

empire prom dresses

If you are curvaceous then empire prom dresses will taper in at your waist, accentuating your curves in all the right places. If you’re petite then ankle length prom dresses won’t swamp your small figure, but still allow you to wear a long dress. If you’re lucky enough to be an hour glass, you’ll look great with a defined waist or asymmetric prom dresses as they show off your silhouette.

2. Be Adventurous With Color.

A lot of girls choose black prom dresses, and although you can’t really go wrong with black, why not go for a pop of color?
A bold color, like turquoise or red, is a great way to stand out among your friends, and a fun way to enhance your look.

bright color prom dresses

Remember, you decide the color! Filter between the colors on the left hand side of our store until you find one that’s just so.

3. Accessories Will Make Your Look.

Your prom outfit doesn’t end with prom dresses alone, as accessories will help to complete it. Many prom dresses tend to be a little low cut, and this gives you license to wear eye-catching necklaces and earrings which won’t be overlapping your dress and clashing. Stylish clutches are a great way to carry your phone and makeup, and they can be matched with your prom dress color too! Don’t forget your corsage too! ;)

4. Have Some Fun!

Prom is your chance to really go to town and have fun with your friends, and choosing the right prom dresses will help you to enjoy yourself! Why? Because if you choose a prom dress that puts a smile on your face, and will make your friends go, “Wow!” You’ll be walking on air all night! Try a fancy style like serious sparkle prom dresses for maximum effect!

5. Go With Short Prom Dresses For A Change.

Prom is all about looking a little different to everyone else, and most girls choose a classic long prom dress. You can stand out by choosing short prom dresses! No one said that skirts have to be long, and so you can have a fun and more comfortable look if you ditch the long skirt!

5 Reasons Why Brides Love Budget Wedding Gowns From OuterInner

5 Reasons To Love Budget Wedding Gowns From OuterInner

budget wedding gowns from outerinner

In the news this week we’re hearing a lot about inexpensive budget wedding gowns which are only around US$100 or so! Many brides find it unbelievable that such an important dress could be so ‘cheap,’ but actually these days it’s a fact that you don’t need to pay thousands of dollars to get a really beautiful wedding gown!

It may be that many brides have concerns about paying so little. It may be that many brides have trust issues about gowns bought over the web. So can such a low-priced gown be great? Is it possible to get truly beautiful dresses at such good prices? Basically, are they “too good to be true?”

In this blog we’ll give you 5 reasons why brides love budget wedding gowns from OuterInner.com!

Not Every Wedding Gown Is Created Equal

budget wedding gownsBefore we begin let’s examine the state of wedding gowns from a bride’s point of view.

If you visit a local bridal store, and most brides shop in this way, you’ll struggle to find good quality wedding gowns at under around US$1000. They certainly won’t suggest much cheaper gowns, and this is all because they need to make a lot of profit out of each bride.

Your wedding gown’s price will include:

  • The cost of the dress
  • The import charges
  • The profit of the importer
  • Your country’s tax
  • The costs of the bridal store’s staff salaries
  • Utilities and rental costs
  • The store’s profit

Scary, right?

This is why many brides are saying, “Enough!” And looking for budget wedding gowns!

Actually, the ultra expensive wedding gown that you see in your local bridal store is often the same quality, and indeed made in the same place, as lower cost  budget wedding gowns. The difference is all of the ‘add-ons’ that inflate the cost!

Cut out the staff, rental, and import costs, and it’s quite possible to offer the same wedding gowns at a fraction of the cost; from under $100 to perhaps around $300! It’s that simple, and it’s why brides have been using OuterInner.com as their secret, money-saving, weapon for over 3 years now!

5 Reasons To Love Budget Wedding Gowns From OuterInner!

1. Low Prices!

Go check out the budget wedding gowns from OuterInner. You’ll see that there are 90+ styles costing less than $150! Long, short, traditional, modern. Every bride can find a really inexpensive wedding gown to suit her, and if you have a little more to spend then the choice goes up into the hundreds of styles!

“Why are they so cheap? Surely it’s too good to be true?”

OuterInner cut out all of the nasty added costs you can see above. We can still make enough money to operate as a business and offer you wedding gowns at these prices simply because we don’t need to charge more!

2. High Quality

We understand that you may be unsure about ordering on line, but there are quality safe-guards in place to make sure that your dress reaches you and you love it!
First, please help us to help you by ordering the correct size! We will help you! Read this blog to see how easy it is to get the right measurements!
Each dress is painstakingly hand-made, and checked twice for any quality issues before shipping.

outerinner only sell hand made wedding gowns

Read some of our customer reviews and you’ll see how happy other brides and customers like you were! Click here: http://www.outerinner.com/blog/tag/real-outerinner-customer-reviews/

3. Fast Delivery

Go into a local bridal store and see how quickly they can get your dress. There’s a good chance you’d have to wait for several months! This is because they’re having it made abroad, shipped to them, and finally giving it to you. Not only the long wait, but you’d be likely to have to put down a hefty deposit, or even pay for the dress outright!

Save yourself the time, deposit, and fuel by ordering on line. Your wedding gown is still made abroad, but you cut out the middle-man, and it’s delivered straight to you within only about 6 weeks or so in total (we also offer ‘ready-to-wear wedding gowns‘ that are delivered within about a week!)!

4. Huge Range Of Wedding Gowns

The average local bridal store will have, maybe, a couple hundred dresses on their racks. Only a fraction of these would be in a size that you can try on and wear to get a feel for them.

We understand that brides like you spend a long time looking not for any dress, but for the one, and that’s why we have thousands of dress styles available!

Don’t think it’s hard to search through them all either, visit our budget wedding gowns and you can see a filter to the left-hand side of your screen which allows you to shop by feature. See the wedding gowns that suit you, and avoid those that you’re uninterested in…easy :)

5. Latest Styles For The Discerning Bride

Don’t think the low prices will constrain you to only having a few basic styles to choose from either, as OuterInner offer our budget wedding gowns in many of 2014′s cutting-edge wedding styles, such as two-in-one dresses, peplums, open backs, sparkly, lace etc.
Once again, we suggest that you use the filter to choose from wedding gowns in these trend categories, and you’ll be a trendy bride as well as saving money!
