Luxury Can STILL Be In Your Budget

Budget can and does include luxury. It is always possible. Plus a luxury piece may initially seem expensive or over-the-top budget-wise, but the quality of the bag, its structure and expansion beyond your wedding day ups its value and brings the cost down, especially over the years of use.

If you recall I interviewed Angelina Hart, fashion accessories designer, back in February on my show Budget Weddings NYC 4U. We women prefer to have at least one beautifully crafted and designed bag in our repertoire. Budget can and does include luxury. It is always possible to have both. Angelina Hart
of Angelina Hart Boutique’s Interview, was on my 22 February 2017 show on Budget Weddings NYC 4U on Blog Talk Radio. Since that interview, we have decided to join forces in presenting not only this beautifully crafted utilitarian and luxurious bag, but also my bespoke wedding organizer as well. Is this a commercial? Well, it is, only slightly. Besides the beauty of bag, the organizer and the bride-ready brushes which adapt easily and can enhance your regular everyday life after your ceremony, too.

As Ms. Hart’s Authorized East Coast dealer we (Bespoke Origins, Budget Weddings NYC & Fulcher Design International) are able to offer the bag and bespoke organizer to the budget-conscious bride that desire style, luxuriousness and elegance all wrapped up in one bag (and a book that fits perfectly within). YES! One bag! And in New York City or anywhere else for that matter, but especially in NYC where we’re walking or on public transportation going to various appointments. Finally we can look and feel stylish with this one beautifully-made bag.

In case you didn’t hear our show together here is a synopsis of Ms. Hart and had to say about being CharLena’s guest on Budget Weddings NYC 4U:

Angelina Hart of Carlsbad, CA was a guest on the Budget Weddings NYC radio show with host CharLena Pearson-Fulcher. In the one hour show which can be heard on the Blog Talk Radio platform, Angelina discussed her Grand Career Tote, women’s business handbag, her line of professional makeup brushes and her jewelry designs.

“Being on the show was a great experience. CharLena was a great host. I really appreciated the depth of the questions and I loved discussing the backstories of my products with her and her audience. I hope that my passion for creating beautiful things came across during the show,” stated Angelina.


Why not have lasting luxurious elegance your way now and throughout your marriage?
