Have you managed to get through a year with just one wedding? We haven’t and that can make the summer season even more expensive. Have you ensured that you have a wedding season outfit? According to M&S Bank it costs the average wedding guest just under £230 simply to attend a loved one’s wedding. Of that amount an average of £130 is spent on the outfit alone and that is just for one person and one wedding. Our money saving experts took the bull by the horns and have created an entire collection of Wedding Season outfits for you and him for just £112.50 with a little help with our Debenhams voucher codes
How to Save Money Shopping in the Debenhams up to 30% Off Sale for Weddings
The great things about buying from Debenhams is the fact that you can shop the top wedding designer shoes from Jasper Conran to high street stores like Faith.
If You are Like Us, You Need Money Saving Tip One – Don’t Buy a Bag.
Your other half is likely to have a suit jacket with pockets, a couple in his trousers and possibly even some in his waistcoat. Save yourself the bother of carrying around a bag and let him carry around your lipstick, purse and a few extras. If you really struggle for space pop any extra bits in your car and have him run out when you need your flat shoes for dancing.
Top Tip Number 2: Don’t Buy a Dress!
Dresses are certainly cheaper than separates, but not if you need a different dress for each wedding. If you invest in a great skirt you can simply switch up your look for each wedding with a different top. If you buy two skirts and two tops, you have 4 outfits. Mix that up with multiple hair styles and accessories and you can have a full wedding seasons wardrobe.
We have gone through the perfect Wedding Guest outfits and put together a complete season of Wedding outfits for you and your budget. 4 outfits for the wedding season for under £130 with the help of our friends at Debenhams.
2 Skirts for 4 Wedding Looks
At just £20 this metallic midi skirt has the benefits of going with anything. The shine from the metallic doesn't’t just make it on trend, but also ensures that it is dressy enough for a wedding, avoiding looking bridesmaid like. With an elastic waist band you are able to wear this skirt high or low on your waist making it perfect for nearly every woman’s body shape.
As a second choice this floral mid length skirt is also perfect as it is full of different floral colours. Most weddings are likely to take a colour or colours from this skirt meaning you will compliment the wedding and not clash. With more than one colour in the skirt you can simply pick one or two colours and match a top giving you 5 or 6 different outfits.
Bargain Tops for an Effortless Look
Looking for the bargain of the wedding season? Debenhams gives you the simple white vest top at just £6. This top is currently in the Debenhams up to 30% off sale. Its low price means you can look to splash out on other areas (we mean shoes). Don’t be deceived by the photos with jeans, this top will look great dressed up and perfect for a wedding outfit
Your biggest saving will always be in buying a great simple top that will not only look great with both skirts but also be a staple for the rest of the year. Trawling through the rails is not great in a sale, but Debenhams have this pretty pink top at only £6. Our choice again goes with both our skirts above and our shoes below.
Perfect Heel and Flat Shoes for Weddings
The art to saving money on weddings is to invest in outfit or accessories. We suggest your shoes are in the seasons colours (Ultra Violet, metallics or glitters for 2018) giving you maximum clothes that will match. We love these strappy stiletto wide fit heels at under £18. The subtle and strappy style of the shoes means they will match both our outfits. It also easily allows us to match our outfits to any jewellery we wear. The metallic finish is not only in style this year but, with the strappy style, don’t draw too much attention, so can be worn again almost like new.
Alternately if you are not a high heel wearing kind of girl then what about a total bling fest with some shoes from Roland Cartier? If you are choosing our £6 top from Debenhams, then you can splash out with a pair of these ultra-special but ultra-comfy sandals. At £55 they are a bargain in the sale, but these would take our budget to £149.50. Honestly, we think it’s worth it. If you are going to stretch your budget, then these are also a perfect second pair for an evening of dancing. We just couldn't’t resist!
White Shirt and Tie for Your Partner
Let’s not forget about your other half. A wedding is a great time to get a lovely photo of you and your significant other, so you need to compliment each other. A suit is a costly item for their wardrobe. But a man buys a suit at 21 and doesn't’t replace it until his first born is 21.
To get him through wedding season you simply need one decent white shirt and a tie that matches both your outfits. Let’s be honest girls, after the wedding party in your photo you are the star. If he looks great he probably wont worry if his tie is pink one week to the next.
Very simple shirts start as little under £8.70 in the sale for Debenhams and ties are just £8.40 leaving you a full £110 for your items
If you look at all our options and you are only looking at attending the one wedding this year, then you can dress you and your partner for just £62.70, which is under half of the average spend.
If you are really clever you will take advantage of the bank holiday weekend and stock up on a wedding party wardrobe and ensure that you have outfits for all the engagement, christening, wedding, anniversary parties this year.
So here’s to the Bride and Groom (and your killer cheap wedding outfit)! Cheers from the Bargain Hunters at My Favourite Voucher Codes.
