Shopping for a Fancy Dress Party: 3 Tips for Saving Money

For those of you who may have missed the memo, Sunday 30th March is Mothers’ Day across the UK. For many, this provides a unique and unmissable opportunity to reward their mother for all the times she has been there to provide comfort and support their loved ones in the pursuit of their goals. One of the most modern Mothers’ Day trends revolves around the planning of communal celebratory events, where mothers and alternative family members commemorate the occasion together and as a single group.

You may well be attending a large-scale Mothers’ Day fancy dress party, for example, which will require you to seek out a fun costume that suits the predetermined theme. Consider the following steps towards achieving this goal within the confines of a budget: -

Shop Online rather than In-store

While retail outlets have formed the cornerstone of the British economy for generations, the concept of e-commerce has changed this market beyond all recognition. Shopping online now provides you with a unique opportunity to compare the full range of any given market, as you search store fronts from across the world in the pursuit of money-saving options. In this instance, companies such as Ace Fancy Dress offer the best financial savings, as they provide access to a wide range of costumes across multiple themes.

Embrace your Creative Side to Embellish a Basic Outfit

If you are really strapped for cash, you should consider buying a cut-price, basic outfit that can be purchased for next to nothing. Once you have this hand, you can allow your creative urges to take over and seek out unique methods of embellishing the outfit using craft materials. Not only will this enable you to save money during the course of creating your outfit, but it will also ensure that the finished garment is entirely unique and aesthetically alluring. This will also come in handy if someone else happens to invest in the same outfit for the event!

Visit the Thrift Market

The thrift market has experienced significant growth during the last three years, as consumers have been forced to reduce expenditure while also contributing to a more positive natural environment. This market is also home to a growing range of products, and therefore remains a source of affordable second-hand garments and costumes. Whether you are looking for a ready-made costume or a simple item of clothing that can be altered, the thrift market is well-established as a source of financial savings.


  1. That is one wacky looking outfit. It reminds me of Goldie Hawn on laugh in.

  2. I don't think I've ever purchased a dress for Mother's Day, it sounds like a nice tradition though. My kids are in their early twenties now, so my yearly wish is to just be together for the day.
