Ashley Hicks and her husband tied the knot in June and surprisingly only spent $3000 on the wedding. Like most brides, Hicks wanted to have the “perfect wedding.” Perfect weddings are expensive, however, the couple did not intend to spend too much and end up languishing in debts. They put aside $3000 for their wedding and decided to shop on Amazon’s online wedding shop, known to offer cost-friendly wedding items and services including male and female fashion, wedding invitations, and planners.
According to The Knot, weddings in the US averagely cost about $34,000. Hick’s husband works in the field of finance and was always keen on ensuring that the couple did not spend unnecessarily. In an interview with ABC 13, Hick mentioned that her husband did not want them to start their lives together with debts and was against them spending too much on their wedding. Hicks got engaged in February and set the wedding for June which means that the couple had only four months to prepare for the big day.
Hicks sought out the services of a wedding planner who advised her to shop for wedding items on Amazon because purchases would be relatively faster and the shop provides multiple options for her to compare and choose from. Hicks heeded the wedding planner’s advice and purchased wedding items on Amazon. She says that she had an easy shopping experience especially since the wedding items had comprehensive reviews from previous shoppers. She bought everything on Amazon including her wedding gown, jewelry, shoes, bridesmaid dresses, the groom’s suspenders, the groomsmen’s gifts, and even plates. The couple spent only $3000 for food, clothes, and decorations. This almost unbelievable as the wedding catered to about 150 guests.
For the wedding gown, Hicks measurements were taken and shared with a dressmaker in China. Initially, she had tried a gown at a local store and was told that it would cost her $1000 but then she opted to shop on Amazon. The same style of the gown at the local store was custom made for her in China for just $100 including taxes. The dressmaker she chose had good reviews. The gown was delivered in two weeks as promised and everything fit perfectly.
Hicks advises anyone planning any special occasion but does not want to spend too much and end up in debt to only use the resources that are available to them. Amazon worked very well for her and she highly recommends it.
