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.
Once you've found your dream wedding dress, the search is on to find the perfect shapewear to go underneath it. We're not just talking about undergarments that suck you in, either — bridal shapewear is so much more than that. Wedding dresses come in all sorts of fabrics and colors (white being the most popular, of course) that show every dimple and crease, so a supportive foundation garment is key. Whether you're rocking a wedding dress with a plunging neckline, a low-back number or a strapless ball gown, Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales present the perfect opportunity to scoop up bridshapewear on the cheap. Not sure what type of smoother or shaper works best with your wedding dress? Ahead, check out our handy bridal shapewear cheat sheet, where you'll find all the bodysuits, slips, bras and bustiers you should be watching on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
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.
Sales season is a great opportunity to score discounts on bridal necessities like gowns, accessories and more. But it's also a chance to take a break from wedding planning and treat yourself to some new wardrobe essentials — and with temperatures dropping, it doesn't get more essential than a pair (or several pairs) of boots. Stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Macy's and more are offering Cyber Week savings on all sorts of stylish boots, so whether you're in the market for all-weather winter boots or sexy ankle boots for date night, now is definitely the time to score. To simplify the shopping experience, we've shopped out our favorites ahead — click through for a selection of the best boots on offer for less.
