Getting married is expensive! You’ve got to pay for everything, and everything is so costly. You pay hundreds of dollars on dresses, attire for the party, a wedding cake, catering, photography, venues, and the honeymoon. The best thing you can do to save extra money is to look for free gifts. Searching for wedding freebies isn’t hard when you know where to look, and the best place to start is wedding websites and magazines. Here are a few other places to find wedding related freebies.
Free Stationery Samples
Choosing the invitations and other forms of stationery is hard. This is why most specialty stationery shops are willing to offer free samples to those who ask. The purpose of these samples is to give you an idea of what’s out there, and how the samples will look in person. It’s really the only way to get an idea of what you want.
Free Makeovers and Beauty Products
If you’re already planning on doing your own makeup, but you don’t know where to begin, it’s time to head to your local department store for a free makeover and free beauty samples. Some companies require you to make a small purchase before the makeover but most don’t; you can call in advance to find out the details.

There is no need to spend $20 to $40 on a wedding planner; you can use a free online planner. Wedding Wire is a fabulous little website that has all the planning tools you need, and it’s free! You can create a budget plan, a seating chart, a checklist, vendor list, and guest list. You can also create an inspiration page that holds all your ideas, and a wedding page that keeps your guests in the know about all things that involve your big day. Wedding Wire is one the best freebies a bride can utilize.
