For example if you are looking for a great pair of Vera Wang bridal shoes why not look at department stores. Often they will carry a wide variety of Vera Wang inspired shoes. These will be made by other manufacturers many you have probably never heard of. However for many the name of the shoe makes matter less then the design.

Macy’s is a great department store to try. They often carry a wide variety of designs by lesser known manufacturers but will be able to pass the savings on to you.

Cheap bridal shoes can be found at many different stores in a variety of styles if you do some work and look hard to find the best deals. You can often find peep-toe, ankle strap, pumps and sandals in various colors and styles.

You can often find your discount bridal shoes for the best possible price when you know the specific month when they will be on sale.

You can often simply ask at your local bridal shop when the shoes go on sale. Generally speaking however there are certain times of year when the shoes go on sale. For example often in the month of January after the holiday season shoes will go on sale. Then again in October a few weeks after the back to school rush. However just to be sure and know your particular location it can’t hurt to ask.

Also you want to understand how season inventory works. All clothing inventory is seasonal and changes with the four seasons. For example an open toe bridal sandal is going to look kind of strange in the middle of winter. So often at the end of a season as the new clothes hit the market stores are forced to sell off their existing inventory to make way for the new shoes. So if you are having a wedding in the late Spring then this year right after that time passes go in a snag a good deal on heavily discounted designer inspired bridal shoes. If you are have a winter wedding then go in late August and pick up a great deal on your wedding shoes.

There are a lot of different ways to save big money on your wedding shoes and if they look almost the same as the more expensive version then why not save the extra buck. It always helps a new struggling family out to have a little extra money for the things ahead…

Unique Wedding Bands For Men

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

When it comes time for the bride and groom to pick out the wedding brands, many couples choose to either design their own bands or find a unique design that matches their personalities. A unique man’s wedding ring can showcase a hobby of the groom-to-be, a memorable event from the couple’s relationship, or even represent a piece of art designed by one of the two. For the extremely adventurous man, there are several options, including, carbon fiber, stainless stele, two tone bands, and even Celtic men’s wedding bands. Some men may desire to have their zodiac sign, or even both theirs and their partner’s sign, displayed on the ring’s face. For those who decide to design the ring after a favorite sport or hobby, there are many unique options. There are gold and diamond roulette rings for the casino players, card faces for the card players, football helmets for the gridiron fans, and horseshoes for equestrians.

Today, the groom-to-be should have no problem finding a men’s wedding ring designer. Many jewelry shops specialize in custom ring creation. For those towns that do not have these craftsmen, the Internet can be a helpful resource. Online merchants such as Guertin Brothers provide custom-made rings to fit all styles. Most online wedding ring designers will allow the man to design everything from the thickness, metal, weight, polish, and stones used for the ring. Although custom wedding ring designers will be able to create the bride and groom’s dream rings, shoppers should remember that this custom service will be much more costly than a mass-produced style of ring. While some unique wedding bands may not conform to traditional norms, the couple should consider what will make them happy. While a unique or custom-designed ring may be more costly, it may also be worthwhile to have a personalized piece of jewelry to symbolize your love.
