easter-1

 

Easter Sunday, 16 April is almost here, and it's time to get ready to feast on your Easter eggs. You'll find Easter eggs of every variety, including gluten free, dairy free, sugar fee and guilt free, everywhere these days; in supermarkets and cut-price stores, health food shops and department stores.

 

But if you're a serious bargain hunter and looking to reap in extra savings then you're in luck, because Easter is just as competitive at Christmas for retailers and there are many offers just waiting to be snapped up. Make sure you're a smart shopper and look out for price reductions this week and after Easter, plus a host of multi-buy offers in-store.

PAY LESS FOR KNOWN LABELS

If you're looking for deals on high-end branded Easter eggs check your local discount stores first. Poundworld and Poundland are not to be missed but also think about places like Wilko and Home Bargains. You are more than likely to find luxury eggs here at a fraction of the price than you would in some other shops.

LUXURY FOR LESS

For the most luxurious of Easter eggs you needn't spend a lot and no longer do you only have the choice from leading chocolatier brands. Companies such as Iceland, are producing their own, and even winning awards for it. This Iceland Luxury Chocolate Egg in Honeycomb & Caramel is a snip at £4 and endorsed by the Good Housekeeping Institute.

It's not just health food shops like Holland & Barrett that are providing this range, most major supermarkets are also jumping on the free from bandwagon, offering alternative options as part of the full Easter egg ranges.

NEUTRALS UNDER £70

If you're a bridesmaid then shunning traditional bridesmaid styles will not only allow for an individual and fashion-forward look, it can also save serious money. Investigate the eveningwear collections of your favourite high street stores, look for summery dresses in quality fabrics and look for dresses in a range of nudes, peaches and creams as tonally these shades will suit you and every other lady-in-waiting. If you're a guest then shy away from nude and cream and go for peach or coral as you won't want to blend in with the bridal party. Here's our pick of neutral dresses for under £70, which you'll be able to wear again and again.

PRINTS & FLORALS UNDER £50

If you so want to stand out from the crowd and wear something that you can enjoy for the rest of the summer then consider choosing a pretty floral print or a bright geometric print. Add cut-outs, simple necklines and the odd ruffle or two and you will look achingly fresh and chic. The bolder the print the better, as it will add an injection of colour to the wedding photos. Here is our pic of the crop under £50.

MIX & MATCH MAIDS

The rule of thumb with bridesmaid dresses is that one style rarely suits all. The answer is to either convince the Bride to let you and your girlfriends work within a colour scheme, choosing from a range of different dresses in the same shade and fabric, whilst retaining individuality through trims and embellishments, alternatively you could select the same dress in different shades.

DETAIL IS IN THE ACCESSORIES

Complement your wedding outfit with a beautiful bag. From envelope clutches in plain satin or lace or with sequins and beads, to hard-shell clutch bags ornamented with sparkling jewels, pearls and 3D embellishments, your bag needs to look premium to match your outfit, even if the price tag isn't. Whether you choose an embellished or an understated design it needs to be large enough to hold your lipstick, a mirror compact, a handkerchief and your mobile phone.

ADD A DASH OF SPARKLE

When it comes to jewellery the rule of thumb is less is more. Choose delicately crafted necklaces, bracelets and earrings with a subtle shimmer and a dash of sparkle or pearl. If you're wearing drop earrings you may want to keep your neckline minimal. You can still make a statement; the trick is to go for understated elegance rather than bold bling. Whether you opt for precious metal or costume jewellery is entirely your choice.

Lastly make sure you wear the dress and the dress doesn't wear you. Irrespective of choosing a traditional or contemporary, elegant or quirky dress, it's how the whole outfit is pulled together that says a lot about you.
