There are so many details involved in the planning of a wedding that sometimes it can be difficult to know exactly where to start. Wedding catalogues can certainly be helpful, allowing you to look through a wide selection of wedding accessories, flowers, dresses and more without even having to leave your house. Another beneficial thing about wedding catalogues is that you can get many of them for free--you just have to know how to go about it.
Purchase bridal magazines that have advertisements for free wedding catalogues. There is usually a postcard (or postcards) in the middle of the magazine with boxes to check for each wedding catalogue you are interested in. Often it is a prepaid postcard, so you can just fill it out and mail it.
Attend as many wedding trade shows as you can. These are great places to pick up or order free wedding catalogues. They specialise in everything from the planning of the wedding to the honeymoon. Pick up the free catalogues that are available that day, and then place an order for the ones that are out of stock at the show.
Utilise the Internet. Some websites, like BestWeddingSites.com and Thrifty-Mom.com, give you the chance to order catalogues from many different places without having to find each individual website on your own. But don't forget to search through individual websites as well. Many sites concentrate on a particular area of wedding planning, such as invitations or bridal gowns, and also offer free catalogues.
Start looking for your free catalogues early since there may be a four- to six-week wait before some of your catalogues arrive.
