Every beach wedding delivers the basics: salt air, gorgeous views, crashing waves and unmatched tranquility. Beyond those elements, what more do you need? Decor that is fit for a beach bride, that's what! Seaside motifs, whether subtle or over-the-top, can heighten an already breathtaking scene. Among the complementary imagery and materials for a beach wedding are ocean-derived items such as sea glass, starfish, sand dollars, coral fans and clam shells. Some brides can choose to go a little more nautical by incorporating sailor knots, rugged rope, fishing floats and anchors. Placing some palm leaves in strategic locations will up the tropical isle vibe. Check out a treasure trove of beautiful items from Etsy, Michaels, Walmart and more that will enrich your waterfront wedding.
After you've picked out your wedding gown, shoes and veil, it's time to choose that last accent: the handbag. Despite your maid of honor's promises to take care of all your needs, don't forget that bridal purse – because you WILL want a lipstick at some point.
Wedding purses and clutches are itsy-bitsy by tradition. (It should be nowhere near as big as your typical day bag!) Bridal clutches need only hold a cell phone, a lipstick, some breath mints and a hankie. Think "dainty." To aid your wedding shopping mission, we scoured some of our favorite online stores to find inexpensive bridal handbags that look pricey. In fact, despite their designer origins – Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker of London, White by Vera Wang – every purse on our list sells for under $100. Here are some of the prettiest wedding purses and clutches from David's Bridal, Macy's, Nordstrom and more.
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.
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.
Cyber Monday is a great day to stock up on discounted holiday gifts for family and friends, but it's also an opportunity to score stylish honeymoon necessities for yourself. And the online destination that should serve as your starting point to prep your for your first trip as newlyweds? Why Nordstrom, of course. The department store's sales are the stuff retail legends are made of, and the Cyber Monday sale is certainly no exception. Last year, Nordstrom offered online shoppers an additional 20% off select sale items — which means this time around you've got the potential to scoop up a whole bunch of essentials that make for a chic honeymoon (without having to overpack). From cozy plane-worthy pants to sunglasses you'll wear long after you return home, these are the deals we think are worth keeping an eye on (and adding to cart) this Cyber Monday.
