Strong communities are usually made up by strong families, and there’s no bigger event in a family’s life than a wedding! They can also be extremely stressful though, so we’ve found a few local Australian businesses that will be able to help make your wedding less stressful, and more cost effective!
Often it’s the accessories that can cause a lot of last minute pain, and if you are having trouble choosing between a wedding veil or a bridal tiara (or both), then you can head to www.tiarahq.com.au and www.weddingveilshq.com.au to help. They’ve got a great range of veils and tiaras, as well as free shipping and exchange policies in case you receive the item and it doesn’t quite suit you the way you thought it would.
Of course, while much attention is often focused on her engagement and wedding rings, often the mens rings are the ordered at the last minute! Try to get this one out of the way early, so that you can make sure you have the right design in the right size that fits perfectly. Mensringshq.com.au has a great range of modern designs in hardy metals like titanium and tungsten, as well as an easy exchange policy should you choose the wrong size or design.
If the mother of the bride or the bridesmaids are feeling a little left out, then don’t worry, as we have you covered as well! Fascinators are a way of dressing up without outshining the bride (a cardinal sin!), and FascinatorsHQ.com.au definitely has you covered in this department. Finding a fascinator that will suit you on the day, as well as being able to be used on other occasions is the key to saving money here, so choose wisely, and don’t be afraid to exchange it if necessary. Also, don’t forget the flower girl dresses either. You can find a great new range of dresses for the your little princesses at www.flowergirlhq.com.au, also with great exchange policies should you need them. These are by the same company that runs www.bridesmaiddresseshq.com.au, www.burlesquecostumeshq.com.au and formaldresseshq.com.au, so you might be able to swing a deal if you contact them first, or you could just get a nice maxi dress if you want to go a little less formal (and expensive!), or just pull out one of your nicest evening dresses for the occasion.
Once the bridesmaids are looking their best, it’s time to move onto the groomsmen. Should they be wearing a hat? That’s up to you, but if you do want to go down this path, both FedoraHats.com.au and BowlerHats.com.au have you covered, depending on the style of headwear you would like. A bowler hat would be more unique, but if you want to have that real 50s look, then a fedora hat is the way to go.
As for the groom, if you’ve taken care of the ring, then you can move on to the other accessories he may be considering. Bowtie, cravat or mens tie? Should his cufflinks be different to the groomsmens’? Should you buy a flask or a pocket watch as your groomsmens’ gifts? That’s a judgement call best made by both the groom and the bride, but as with all of the aforementioned items, just make sure you don’t leave them until the last second!
