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