You can knock a bunch off your shopping list with Cyber Monday sales — and that includes your honeymoon. Shop these travel deals and save big on everything from flights and hotel stays to tours and cruises.
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.
Whether you're making your holiday plans or booking your dream honeymoon, there's nowhere better to score deals on travel gear than Nordstrom. From weekender bags to sunglasses, the selection is currently rife with major markdowns that are not to be missed — and with Black Friday approaching, the discounts only promise to get better (last year's savings included up to 40% off select designer items).
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.
