You're getting married, so now's the time to start planning a color palette that you love and that — fingers crossed — will flatter all of your bridesmaids. This is their time to shine, too, and they'll look lovely surrounding you in their finery. For your convenience, we've looked high and low for where to buy affordable bridesmaid dresses that are not only gorgeous but also flattering for every body type, from petite to plus size and in colors ranging from purple to grey to black. We set our price at under $100 (some styles are under $50!), because we know how it all adds up. By the looks of these elegant gowns from David's Bridal, ASOS, Walmart, Amazon and more, you would never know they didn't cost hundreds of dollars.
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.
Every bride breathes in a deep sigh of relief on her wedding day. It may not go smoothly, and that's fine. But between now and then, getting the wedding prepared is a bit of a marathon, and it can't hurt to be physically fit. Sure, there's a lot of pressure on brides to look as good as possible in that wedding gown, and many women find themselves "shedding for the wedding." Whether you're looking to drop a few pounds, simply want to stay toned or are trying to tame your inner Bridezilla with some stress-relieving yoga, we've found 20 high-tech performance leggings to wear in your pursuit of health and happiness. They'll keep you comfy and dry as you work toward your goal, and most importantly, you'll look and feel fabulous on your special day.
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.
The big day is around the corner and a bride's wedding planning work is never done. But one item you can tick-off your to-do list and feel great about is purchasing gifts of appreciation for all your best gals. A bridesmaid gift is a genuine way to show your love — and apologize for any bridezilla-esque moments! These on-trend, stylish and elegant robes and kimonos are a pretty perfect "thank you" for the whole bridal party. Plus, a silk or satin robe is Instagram-worthy, frequently customizable and fully wearable beyond just the bachelorette party pics or wedding day festivities. Some are even cute outside the bedroom when paired with denim jeans, shorts or even a little black dress! Here are a bunch of our favorite, affordable and fashionable bridesmaids robes you can buy at Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Etsy, Amazon and more right now.
