Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.
Choosing where to spend your hard-earned money on Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) is tricky — especially for budget-conscious brides in the midst of wedding and honeymoon planning. You've likely already dropped a decent amount on your big day, so finding the best bargains out there is key. And mapping out your Black Friday sale-shopping strategy ahead of time always helps. With strategizing in mind, we suggest putting Walmart at the top of your shopping list. The mega-retailer just released its Black Friday deals, and there are tons of bargains in the electronics department alone. You can score everything from a big-screen TV (perfect for snuggling in front of with your honey) to a home security system to protect your nest to a Fitbit that will help you get in shape for the wedding. Ahead, we've collected the best online Black Friday tech deals Walmart has to offer. The sale kicks off online at 10pm ET on 11/21 and in stores at 6pm ET on 11/22, so get ready to snag these steals.
Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
Every bride breathes in a deep sigh of relief on her wedding day. It may not go smoothly, and that's fine. But between now and then, getting the wedding prepared is a bit of a marathon, and it can't hurt to be physically fit. Sure, there's a lot of pressure on brides to look as good as possible in that wedding gown, and many women find themselves "shedding for the wedding." Whether you're looking to drop a few pounds, simply want to stay toned or are trying to tame your inner Bridezilla with some stress-relieving yoga, we've found 20 high-tech performance leggings to wear in your pursuit of health and happiness. They'll keep you comfy and dry as you work toward your goal, and most importantly, you'll look and feel fabulous on your special day.
