Planning a wedding, or know someone who is? You're going to want to pay a visit to your local Sainsbury's store this March, as the supermarket is launching a stylish wedding collection, and it all costs under £16. Proving you don't need to spend a fortune to add the decorative finishing touches for your special day, the range includes everything from a commemorative guest book to a table plan, which are all a steal compared to similar designs available from stores such as The White Company and Not On The High Street.
The collection is launching just in time for the royal wedding, and has taken some inspiration from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's taste, following rumours that the wedding will be "white and classic" with a few "quirky elements". Think arrow shaped carnival lighting (£16), heart-shaped faux floral decorations (£12), and a floral arrangement of pretty pink peonies (£8) - Meghan's favourite flower.
Sainsbury's is launching a wedding collection
Sainsbury's is not the only retailer catering for brides on a budget; Primark has also launched a collection of wedding and hen do paraphernalia, such as a wedding cake topper (£5), a wedding fund money jar (£5) and Mr and Mrs embroidered wedding towels (£7).
Or if you want to get all of your wedding essentials under one roof, you'll need to pay a visit to the world's first wedding department store in London. Located beneath weddings and events venue One Marylebone, The Wedding Gallery is set to become the new epicentre of global wedding planning. This go-to destination will take couples through an enchanting 75-minute journey, offering an exclusive, year-round showcase of the latest wedding trends, inspiration and ideas across all elements of the planning process.
This table plan is available for £16
