In today’s day and age, there is hardly anyone who doesn’t have an up-to-date mobile connection.Smart phones offer a variety of fashion apps that can be very useful to a ‘soon-to-be-bride’. There are varied options you can choose from, like an app for bridal style tips, makeup tutorials, apps for ways to drape saris in different ways, and many more. You can learn a lot at a finger's touch, anywhere, anytime, and that too for free! Now how cool is that?


Shop online


One of the many gifts that we have received from the Internet is online shopping, which has solved many a problems. Many shopping websites offer discounts up to 70% on various styles of Indian attire. You can choose from a wide range of stitched and unstitched suits, lehengas and sarees too. They have new offers everyday, where in they also hold sales of branded clothes at huge discounts.


Mix and match your wardrobe


Styles from the past can get popular any day. If you look through your closet, you will come across various such clothes that you have not worn even once, or that you don’t like otherwise but can go very well when combined with something else. So before going to the market and splurging out on new garments, try to mix and match within your already-existing wardrobe, and who knows, you might just end-up creating a smashing look with your existing clothes.


Accessorise your look


Lack of perspective can be one reason that can lead people to overspend. A plain outfit that you had already purchased might seem ordinary in front of the new collection you saw at the store recently. It is you who has to make a wise decision. Accessorising with jewellery or a heavy dupatta for Indian outfits, and with belts, scarves, chunky rings and flashy neckpieces for a contemporary look can do wonders to your style.


Pick one instead of many


One mistake most brides make is that they tend to buy a lot of things without actually thinking if they really need all that stuff or not. In doing so, they tend to spend much more than they had previously decided. A more reasonable thing would be to buy quality over quantity. For example, invest in a pair of classy and comfortable heels instead of buying three that might hurt your feet or are not that elegant.


Shop at one-stop shops


If you do a little market survey before you actually start with your wedding shopping, you will come across various stores that are 'one-stop shops. Here, you can get everything you require for your forthcoming wedding under one roof. This will save your time, effort and most of all your money. Many stores also have fashion inspired by your favourite designers, so you can get the celeb look for a lesser price. 

Following what your heart says along with some help from your brains will help you save a lot of money, and make you a stylish bride too.
