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.
There are a few go-to retailers brides can always count on for stylish fashion finds, especially BHLDN and David's Bridal. With offerings ranging from dresses and shoes to lingerie and even decor, these two stores have literally got you (and your bridal party) covered from head to toe. If you're in the throes of wedding planning and haven't completed your bridal look yet, don't stress. Thanks to Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on the horizon, there's a pretty good chance you'll be able to score a deal on the wedding dress (or accessory, etc.) of your dreams at these bridal destinations. Last year, BHLDN featured up to 70% off select styles, including gowns starting at $500, bridesmaids and party dresses starting at $100, and accessories starting at $30. Oh, and brides-to-be scored free shipping on their orders. David's Bridal had select shoes and accessories up for grabs from $4.99 to $29.99, 50% off select wedding dresses, $29.95 robes, $99 Donna Morgan bridesmaids dresses, and $299 select Truly Zac Posen wedding dresses. On Cyber Monday and Tuesday, they also gave shoppers 20% off online orders. Suffice it to say, we think this bodes well for 2018 deals. Ahead, we're highlighting our favorite dresses, shoes and accessories on offer from David's Bridal and BHLDN, so get ready to swoon — and then keep an eye out for Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. These stunning picks could just be among them.
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.
Whether you're already living with your spouse, newly married and merging homes for the first time, or looking for the perfect wedding gift for the happy couple in your life, Macy's is your ultimate one-stop shop — especially during the Macy's Black Friday sale, which has officially kicked off. This year, Macy's Black Friday deals include 20% off with promo code BLKFRI (and an extra 15% off in select departments), doorbuster deals up to 65% off, $10 off purchases of $25 or more in select departments with promo code BLKFRI25, and free shipping at $49 (some exclusions apply). The store's epic home department boasts an extensive inventory ready to outfit any abode from top to bottom — literally — so now is definitely the time to score. Because whose living space couldn't use a little refresh?
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
