It's said that December is 'engagement month'. So you may be sporting some new bling or have a diamond-shaped dent in your wallet.
With engagements come weddings (spoiler alert: they don't come cheap) - see our 50 Cheap Wedding Tips guide. We've spotted some heavily reduced dresses suitable for bridesmaids which will hopefully help you save some cash on the big day or at least get you an extra Margarita or two on your honeymoon. These dresses would also be good if you have a fancy do to go to.
Our top pick 'bridesmaid' dresses from £20
There's a huge selection of reduced dresses* (it's best to search by size). The sale ends Sun 26 Jan, but stock's going fast and we reckon they'll be gone by then.

The girls at MSE (like most MoneySavers) love a bit of Primark - it's the place to go for cheap, fashionable clothes. But as much as we love it, the thought of shopping there can send shivers down any dedicated fashionista's spine. Shopping in-store on a Saturday is a glimpse into retail hell with 75% of the clothes on the floor, being elbowed and pushed by fellow shoppers and huge queues not only at the till, but in some places, outside in the morning waiting to get in.
There's now a cheeky trick where you can get your Primark bargains but from the comfort of your sofa. To say we were pleased when Asos* started stocking Primark clothes was an understatement - because you're going through Asos, DELIVERY'S FREE! Shopping heaven.
And here's the best bit - Primark now has sale stock online at Asos. Having said that, the range of stock isn't as big as it would be if you went in-store.
There's talk of Asos discontinuing its contract with Primark very soon - even more of a reason to act quickly to get your sale bargains delivered.
Here's some of what's available, though there are lots more:
Available while stocks last and all with free delivery. We've asked Asos if the items are the same price online as in-store. It's not got back to us yet, but from what we've seen, it is the case.
Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead. See full Boost Loyalty Points guide for more Boots tips.
Our new Local eBay Deals Mapper lets you find bargains if you're prepared to pick them up. eBay sellers often specify items must be collected in person which means fewer bids. But you can't normally search 'collection only' so put your postcode in and how far you're prepared to schlep and watch the gems pop up.
