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.
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.
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.
To guarantee that there are no cold feet at a wedding, buy some stylish socks for the groomsmen. Fun prints abound in men's sockwear, from those featuring vintage Mickey Mouse illustrations to adorable dogs to the Rolling Stones' iconic tongue-and-lips logo. Because stylish men's socks offer guys the primo opportunity to energize their ensembles, look for funky, colorful sock sets that will bring chic to their feet.
The dual traits of fun and quality are a rarity in men's socks, but we've curated a list of socks that accomplish both. Groomsmen socks make awesome wedding party presents, so seek out yours among the favorites that we found at ASOS, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Taking advantage of the long Fourth of July long weekend for your wedding celebration? Tones of red, white and blue will add sizzle to the shindig. Our country's birthday invites you to imbue your wedding with classic Americana motifs. Plus, planning a patriotic party allows you to create a laid-back and casual wedding vibe.
Think out of the box when orchestrating your Fourth of July wedding. Rather than the traditional white flower girl dress, choose gingham. Instead of fancy ties or ascots, have your groomsmen wear red, white and blue bowties. Then, finish the affair with sparkling fireworks!
