January always seems to be the longest month of the year! Here's some top tips to help you squeeze the most out of your January budget!


Make The Most of January Sales 

January is the perfect time to make the most of the sale rail! We have a range of lovingly cared for sample gowns in a variety of sizes, colours and shapes at up to 80% off the original retail price! Our Sample Gowns are purchased straight off the boutique floor, as is, at amazing discounted prices!

Source Local

Shopping local is more important now than ever! Do you have a friend who designs wedding invites? A family member with a flare for baking your favourite sweet treats? Perhaps you know a local photographer who would love to capture your special day! Make use of the talent around you by supporting local businesses and saving you some pretty pennies too!

Moments To Last Forever 

Instead of renting a photo booth at hundreds of pounds, pop a disposable camera on each of your guests' tables and let them capture your special moments! This will save you a fortune and is just even more fun for your guests!

Many retailers offer various deals and discounts throughout the year that can help slash the cost of the Big Day. Keep an eye out around key dates such as Valentines Day, Black Friday Sales and Trunk Shows for extra savings! Become an Elody Insider and subscribe to our newsletter to hear about our sales first!

Furthermore, Saturdays are the most sought-after days to marry, which often comes at a price! Consider having your wedding on a weekday for maximum savings! In addition, venues often offer "off season" weddings which are between October and March at a cheaper rate!


The Icing On The Cake

Wedding cakes are traditionally a must have at a wedding, but how many weddings have you been to where you never actually get a slice? Why not ditch the multi tiered cake and go for a simple one tiered delight. This way, you'll still get pictures of the classic cake cutting moment, without the expensive price tag. We have seen lots more newlyweds opting for wedding cake alternatives such as donut walls, cake pops macaron towers which are much more budget friendly and just as tasty!
