Free Wedding Samples and Products: A Collection of the Best Wedding Freebies and Samples

Source

I like free stuff... a lot. I am about to be a bridesmaid in a wedding, so I'm doing a lot of research on wedding-related items. The bride is very frugal, bless her heart. She needs to be for crying out loud, this wedding has snowballed and is growing exponentially. We are bargain hunters, the two of us. Yes, we even got up in the middle of the night on Black Friday to battle the masses, all in the name of saving a few bucks. So, when she asked me to "help" with the wedding, I knew what she meant.

One thing that's pleasantly surprised me is the number of free wedding samples out there for the taking. You can test drive a number of products before you actually invest any money. You just have to know where to look, that's where I come in!

Free Wedding Samples: Invitations

I remember spending WAY too long looking at wedding invitations when I was getting married. You can make it a little easier by finding places online willing to send out free samples. Just remember to plan ahead since some of the samples take a few weeks to ship. Check out the following places to get your free wedding invitation samples:

Free Rexcraft Wedding Invitation Samples

Ann's Bridal Bargains

Invitations by Dawn

Exclusively Weddings

Wedding Paper Divas: Beautiful and unique designs. You can get up to five free samples, too.

Best Free Wedding Websites

It seems every engaged couple has their own website these days. In fact, it's an excellent way to disseminate wedding information, updates, changes, manage RSVPs, etc... They are also a great after the wedding keepsake. Check out these sources for your own free wedding website:

eWedding has tons of bells and whistles coupled with very nice designs. There's almost nothing you can't do on here, I'm telling you.

mywedding- Okay this is a cool idea. You can match your website to your wedding invitation here, that is if you've used one of their invitation partners. You're in luck if you've chosen Wedding Paper Divas, The American Wedding, Papeterie, Minted or Hello Lucky. They have a lot of templates, however. Surely one would coordinate with your invitations. Check it out!

Project Wedding has beautiful themes that are highly customizable. They include options for guest books and maps as well.

Free Veil Samples

Veils by Roxanne offers free veil samples. They offer highly customizable veils, too (even with their samples!). You can pick the edges, fabric, color and embellishments...

WeddingVeil.com also offers free samples, but they're not nearly as customizable as Veils by Roxanne.

Free Silk Flower Petal Samples

Some couples like to use flower petals to decorate for the big wedding day. If you're one of those couples considering this adornment, you can get some free samples to help you make your decision.

Petal Garden offers free samples of their silk rose petals. You can get a free sample with up to ten petal colors.

SHAZ!!! It's so great to see you, I haven't heard from you for so long. Thanks for coming by and commenting. Weddings are astronomical indeed. I have two girls so I'm bracing myself. Happy new year to you.

What a wonderfully written, useful and informative article! I understand why weddings cost so much now. All those lovely freebies have to be paid for in other ways. What a wonderful goal for a bride to do a frugal wedding by getting something for nothing... if only I had thought about this when I married! lol

oldandwise, I love balloons for weddings, especially sleek, ivory ones. Thanks for coming by, commenting and up voting.

Great advice, especially when everything costs so much. I did a hub on weddings using balloons for decorations. With the cost of flowers, balloons are becoming more popular. Voted up!

Wow, I had never thought of this. I am getting married in the summer so sites like these are rather useful to me. I like to get ideas from other people and sites - like invitations and seating plans. Nice hub - thanks.
