A reboot of two classic Bridechilla Podcast episodes (154+155) where I asked The Bridechilla Community to share their best wedding planning hacks, tips and shortcuts. I was amazed at your ingenuity, money saving ideas and open mindedness when it came to this request.
As well as including some of your best tips, in this episode I share with you some fabulous suggestions about using the shared economy…renting and hiring dresses and suits, using a ‘fake’ cake and repurposing bridesmaids bouquets…some jolly good hacks, timesavers and clever ideas that will help you save time, money and your sanity, when it comes to planning your big day.

Rent the Runway
Was a VERY popular #bridechilla suggestion from my US & Canadian listeners. So many tips about renting bridesmaids dresses (and wedding gowns), including using their ‘add a free backup size offer’.They offer 20% off your first order when you use the codeword FIRSTRT20P and check out their wedding guide for more info about their wedding range, including maidchilla dresses and accessories.
Wedding Paper Divas
For invitations and wedding stationery, a listener recommended Wedding Paper Divas! New customers can take advantage of $50 off orders of $150 or more using the code AFF50OFFWPD at checkout.
Trello is an online tool for managing projects and personal tasks. It's free to use and they've got a bunch of fabulous wedding templates and helpful tutorials. I am using it to manage all of your communications for the podcast and it is FAB! 100 gold stars.
