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.
Shivering on your way to the altar is far from fashionable. Yet it's a surprisingly tall order to find a coverup that's appropriate — and suitably warm — to wear over wedding attire. Given the array of wedding dresses available, from romantic gowns to sassy cocktail numbers, we have found as many bridal coats, capes, stoles and shrugs to pull together your bridal ensemble.
For a sleek and chic look, faux fur is the gold standard. It's a standout for bridal attire for two reasons: It's toasty warm, and it's elegant. And it's a go-to for retro brides who want to bring some vintage luxury to their winter wedding. White fur will keep the look entirely bridal, but you can also choose a color or a natural hue. For the fashion-forward bride, we found a white faux fur moto jacket to rock your nuptials. And a black or white wool capelet lends an Old Hollywood vibe.
Below are some of our favorite winter bridal cover-ups from BHLDN, Boden, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Amazon and more. Each style was selected to enhance, not hide, your wedding dress, because the picks are as pretty as your gown. And the best part? Prices start at $28!
The mother of the bride holds a highly esteemed position within the wedding party, and she should look the part. That's why we've assembled the best mother-of-the-bride dresses in prices under $250, and we've included plus size, tea length, long length and evening dresses so that your mom will look elegant on your big day. After all, she'll be the second most noticed woman in the room.
There are many bridal options available to moms as they shop for that moment-defining outfit. We've listed flattering mother-of-the-bride dresses that feature an array of tailored touches. Your mother can choose from dresses that include empire waists, flutter sleeves, draping, A-line skirts and strategically placed ruffles. Her attire can exude any mood, from casual to formal, and these styles can take her to any wedding, from oceanfront ceremonies to ballroom events. Shop our favorite finds below.
Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
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.
