All the Black Friday Sales You Need to Know About Before Your Wedding
OK, Black Friday is still a bit of a ways off, but that doesn't mean you couldn't benefit from a little pre-shopping strategizing in advance. Going into the biggest shopping day of the year without a plan isn't just inefficient — it's downright crazy. There are so many opportunities to score big: everything from wedding accessories to honeymoon outfits to home goods for your new nest. If you want to get the most out of your Black Friday experience (clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty products...you get the picture) you should start taking notes — like, right now. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving (Turkey Day is Nov. 22 this year), but several shrewd brands have started offering discounts in the days leading up to the main event. Last year, many retailers rolled out discounts and promo codes at least two days early and several had reductions ready the week prior. That means you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for deals before Thanksgiving even arrives. Here's who served up serious discounts last year and who we're looking to score from again this time around. Don't forget to check back here for updates in the coming weeks.
Lord & Taylor
Last year, the specials at Lord & Taylor included 20% off regular and sale items in-store and online; $39.99 Lord & Taylor cashmere shells, crewnecks and V-neck sweaters ($130 off); boots starting at $29.99; and select women's puffer coats at $59.99 (up to 70% off). If you're a winter bride planning a cold-weather honeymoon, this might be the place to stock up.SHOP IT NOW!
Mega-retailer Nordstrom is a Black Friday power player. In addition to ongoing services like Buy Online & Pick Up In-Store, Reserve Online & Try In Store, Express Alterations (including complimentary 1-hour basic hems) and Same Day Delivery, the retailer offered 24/7 curbside pickup as well as an extra 20% off select sale items, and designer clearance featuring up to 40% (that began several days early). From activewear (for your pre-wedding workout regimen) to ready-to-wear to beauty and more, the getting was good during the Nordstrom sale — so prepare to do some damageSHOP IT NOW!

Once the stress of wedding planning is over, you can focus on making a home together — or just freshening up the one you've already made. Black Friday deals from decor destination Houzz started a week ahead of time last year and ran through the first weekend in December. That included site-wide savings up to 80% off everything for the home, from rugs to bar stools to holiday decor (and more).SHOP IT NOW!
A great honeymoon (or any trip, really) starts with great luggage. If splurging on a high-quality set at full price isn't totally in the budget, stalk Tumi around Thanksgiving. Last year, the luggage label offered 40% off select online exclusives on Black Friday and an extra 20% off already-reduced styles on Cyber Monday.SHOP IT NOW!
Every bride wants to look like a million bucks — without actually having to spend a small fortune.

It's definitely worth checking out this season.SHOP IT NOW
