So I've picked up quite a few Bridal magazines recently and have just been looking at wedding dresses, hair styles and beauty products and I skip over anything with even the mention of favours or table displays!
Now I actually wanted to talk wedding magazines with all you brides (or anyone that is thinking wishfully).There is no doubt about it they are stupidly over priced, the one above costs £4.99 - which is the price of a book not a magazine! However there is definitely a way of being savvy about it and actually saving money strangely enough!
Firstly you can't see wedding magazine buying as a monthly thing - I mean it could easily cost you £20 a month when you can get all the same info online for FREE via wedding blogs. But when you are buying one you do need to look at the ones that offer something FREE - for example afew weeks ago when I wasn't even that enthusiastic about planning my wedding I spotted a magazine that offered a free OPI nail polish worth £10.50. I bought the magazine for £4.50 and sent off the coupon with a 1st class stamp (very old school but there wasn't an online option) and I'm now actually finding the magazine pretty helpful.
This week I picked up the May/June issue of You & Your Wedding for this reason...
