Set a budget and stick to it.
"You don't want to go into debt over a wedding and head into marriage with money problems.

Be flexible with your style.
"Stay true to your personal style, but also be flexible with your options. You may have your mind set on a certain style, but be willing to change it if you try on a dress that looks more flattering on you. You want to feel comfortable and beautiful on your wedding day."

Switch up your beauty look.
"Have fun with lipstick colors you love! I did a more natural hue for the ceremony, but I love the idea of going bolder for the reception. Nars does a great matte lip pencil called Dolce Vita, and MAC's Russian Red is my go-to for a pop of color."

Your something new could become someone else's something borrowed.
"I had a shawl made to go with my wedding dress, and it was by far my favorite accessory as it gave my gown a more vintage look. Plus, I get to pass it on to a loved one, one day."
