"Over the last few years, the average person has become more comfortable with online shopping. Consequently, turning to the Internet during wedding planning is as natural as ever. The Web not only increases choices available for The Big Day, it presents cost saving opportunities as well." Kyle goes on to share several tips.

DIY. The bride, along with families and friends, can do it themselves and save. Putting together centerpieces, making favors, or baking a "cupcake cake" are only a few ways to save. Additionally, making your own veil is one of the simplest cost-cutting measures. The cost of tulle and embellishments compared to the cost of buying a veil can represent large savings.

Buy at auction. Online auctions, especially eBay, have experienced phenomenal growth in recent years. The number of items available at any one time is mind boggling. It is quite common to find new or carefully used items at a fraction of the retail cost.

Shop "clearance aisles." Just as in brick and mortar stores, many Web stores have a clearance section where deeply discounted merchandise can be found.

Look for coupons. There are dozens of online coupon sites that publish current deals from hundreds of Websites. To find current coupons and other specials, Google the name of the merchant along with the phrase "coupon code."

Start early. For the best selection and value, start online shopping early in the wedding planning process. This gives the advantage of waiting for low price sales and monitoring auctions for the perfect items before purchasing.

Compare prices from several merchants. One of the best money saving benefits of going online to shop is the ability to compare prices without leaving the house, which can add up to tremendous savings.

Shoes are an example of how everyone in the wedding party can save. Most department stores sell online, as do several Web based shoe merchants with excellent selection and reputation.
