A bride has shared how she managed to cut around $10,000 off the total cost of her wedding by using a few Kmart hacks.
"When I started planning my wedding, I was really shocked at the crazy price tag when you mention anything wedding. I was confident I could find similar pieces for a much better price," she said.
"I headed to my favourite budget store, Kmart, and managed to slash the prices to decorate my wedding and saved thousands."
"I worked out a styling theme early on. I wanted a mix of classic colours such as white, gold and navy, mixed with rustic such as natural timber and greenery. I then hunted for budget items which fitted that theme."
"We used Kmart candle holders, photo frames, plaques, table numbers, signs and tablecloths. We also bought Kmart dressing robes for my bridesmaids to wear in the morning while getting ready."
"The whole ceremony looked gorgeous, and it felt amazing that we were able to do so much of it ourselves."
"Not only did it save money, but it puts our own spirit and energy into our wedding. It was such an incredible day."
She went on to say that their wedding cost around $40,000 in total. She admitted that that wasn't cheap, but they did save a lot of money by shopping around!
