When you think of the budget as well as your wedding destination, you must take everything into account and make lots of comparison to be the more effective possible. You might want to have a wedding in France or even have a wedding in Paris, city of love! Well sometimes it will cost you less than if you got married in your own country. For example, your wedding dream in America could be more expensive than if you realize this wedding in France. I will tell you why: Of course, you must take into account the travel to France but once you are in Europe, so many opportunities present itself to you! You will be able to visit a new country, to plan your wedding in a French castle if you feel like it and to enjoy the French art of living! All of this with the same budget as if you were doing it in your own country. Why not fly to Italie or Spain after your wedding in France? Cheaper plane tickets, your dream continued, new cultures discovered, an adventurous beginning together… What better time to do it? I assure you, your wedding in France can cost you less than in America and will let you have a wedding even better than what you had imagined.

Once your bridal clothes are bought, take care of them until the final day. If you take the plane to your wedding destination, take them with you in cabins so there in no risk of losing them. (But remember, in one month your body can change. To be sure it still fits you perfectly on your wedding day, try it on some days before.) A dress bought at last minute will never replace the original wedding dress.
