A lot of brides will consider purchasing a new gown for the wedding. Every bride would like to be the most beautiful bride in the word on the wedding day. However, you can still consider to purchase a second hand wedding dress. A second hand item does not necessarily mean that it is not a beautiful item. If it is possible, you can also wear the gown your mother or even your grandmother wore when they got married. This is on one hand environmental friendly and on the other hand make the gown more meaningful.

When your wedding favor is concerned, the best situation will be that you do not prepare them. However, it will not be so practical in a sense that you have to use the favor to thank your guests.
