Weddings are amazing, and they often create treasured memories forever…however, there’s no two ways about it: weddings are expensive. One very well known highstreet brand has come up with a solution that you might be keen to hear about.
Whether it’s your dream dress or the perfect venue pushing you close to the boundaries of your increasingly tight budget, bargains can really do come in handy when shopping for all the little details that bring your day together. And that’s where Poundland swoops in to save the day!
In the summer Poundland launched its very own wedding range – featuring a variety of wedding extras, selling for around £1 each. The new collection rolled out across UK stores, and their line has everything you’d need! From shabby chic signs and gorgeous bunting, to wedding planners and full bouquets – all enabling you to purchase those perfect little additional touches for next to nothing! Cheers Poundland!
Barry Williams – trading director for Poundland – says, ‘Wedding days can end up costing an absolute fortune and because we’re a nation of savvy shoppers who love a bargain, it’s no surprise that more people are looking to save money on their big day.’
Wedding Planner Book
Make sure you’ve got everything sorted before the big day by writing down your to-do list and ticking each task off as you complete it. Their fabulous wedding planner book has individual sections to ensure you’ve got everything covered.
In a surprise move, Poundland have come up with the perfect accompaniment to add to the release of their new collection! Now they will also advise you on your wedding planning, as they’ve appointed their first ever wedding planner, Sophie Bladen, to provide tips for soon-to-be-wed couples on a budget.
Send out these simple but totally elegant and to the point invitations to your guests. After all this is just an introduction to the big day, so save cash on these and they’ll get a better welcome tipple!
50 place cards for £1! The seating plan is a tough one, but they’ve made it easier for you. Buy a 50 pack of place cards for you to personalise how you wish and decorate with their two assorted embellishment packs. Bargain!
The finishing touches are super important when it comes to table settings. By using crystal scatter gems and setting out some of the silver speckled tea light holders with twinkling fairy lights inside, you can rest-assured that your guests will adore your decor, while your bank manager won’t be shaking his head in shame! Create centrepieces for only £3 each!
Not got much budget for wedding flowers? No worries! “Nothing says ‘bride’ like a beautiful bouquet of flowers,” says Sophie, “Use our beautifully arranged faux flower bouquet to stand out.” Double up as centrepieces or use as budget-friendly bridesmaid bouquets.
I love these funky pompoms and strings of faux-pearls that would add a fun colour pop to your wedding decorations!
