All over America, our lovely Stateside readers are probably tucking into turkey right about now, or popping their pumpkin pies into the oven – Happy Thanksgiving guys, have a fabulous one! But over here in London, it’s business as usual.
Now while we haven’t adopted the traditions of Thanksgiving in the rest of the world, one aspect of it that has taken off in recent years, is the big blow-out sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
But what was once a mad dash around the shops for one day only, has now become (a far more relaxing) excuse to shop online at your leisure, with many websites offering discounts that last all weekend long.
And while most people are thinking Christmas gifts and party dresses (planning a few outfits ourselves), it’s also the perfect time to pick up a few bargains for your wedding too – without the usual stress of the sales!
While I’m not normally a sale shopper, the best thing about Black Friday & Cyber Monday discounts is that they’re often across new collections, so you’re not simply stuck with the end of season leftovers. (Win!).
But of course, with almost every website offering different discounts, it can be hard to sniff out the true bargains. So to help you on your way, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite stores to shop for all things weddings – that also happen to be offering some major savings over the next few days.
So whether you’re tucked up with your laptop and your leftovers in the US, or hitting the shops from your phone in London, Paris, Sydney or Singapore, we’ve got some killer discounts you’re going to want to check out.
1. Plum Pretty Sugar
Plum Pretty Sugar stock gorgeous robes, cute pajamas, all sorts of bridesmaid gifts and even bridal and bridesmaid dresses. We’re big fans of their mix and match sets of getting ready robes – they look so pretty in wedding pictures!
Their deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday are always great – but this year they’re dishing out the bargains big time. All week they’ve been generously offering Bridal Musings readers secret discounts via their chat function (they’re so sweet!) and today the offer is 25% off sitewide, 25% off flash sale and 50% off dresses.
Featured as one of our best places to buy wedding dresses & favorite sites for bridesmaid dresses thanks to their already stellar prices on the trendiest styles, BHLDN is winning our hearts even more with their Black Friday to Cyber Monday sales.
Using the code BLACKFRIYAY, brides & grooms will receive 30% off all markdowns (excluding final sale gowns) and free shipping on all orders.
Okay, so let’s be honest here, ASOS is probably one of our most frequented websites all year round, and their regular flash sales are always pretty generous, so we’re rather excited that their Black Friday offers span across the site. You know we’re going to be spending most of our weekend sifting through for shoes, bags, jewellery, dresses and lingerie. (And that’s before we start gift shopping!).
ASOS is a gem for affordable wedding purchases, from bridesmaids dresses and suits, to heels and hair accessories. Make the most of the discounts and leave room in your budget to splurge on something special – each region has different discounts, so click here to find yours.
Gents, listen up, this is the Black Friday sale for you. As you may already know, J.Crew’s menswear site offers classic suits & accessories perfect for your wedding day and beyond.
Now suiting doesn’t always come cheap, but with 40% off the site using the WHYWAIT promo code, you might just bag the perfect designer shirt, a standout blazer, or some dapper wedding day accessories (think cufflinks, shoes, bow ties and tie pins) for a steal.
5. Jenny Yoo
Oh, girl – if you’re as much of a fan of Jenny Yoo as we are – do we have some exciting news for you! The NYC designer who is responsible for so many picture-perfect mix and match bridal parties & much of our modern wedding dress trends is offering a new deal every day from now through 12/2.
Let me get right to the details: if you head to the site today (11/29) you’ll receive 30% off tulle dresses – we have our eye on lovely Julia. Saturday (11/30), shop velvet gowns at 30% off – might we suggest elegant long-sleeved Malia? Monday (12/1) is maybe our favorite day of all – 30% of crepe dresses and we plan to get our Meghan Markle on with shoulder-baring Petra. Tuesday, our ethereal gals will get their 30% off the chiffon gown (or maybe a few?!) of their choosing – like Halle.
Perhaps the best deal of all is the one Jenny Yoo is gifting the public with her “Buy a Dress, Give a Dress” deal on Tuesday, December 2. For every “available now” dress purchased, online-only, Jenny Yoo will donate a dress to Church Street Bridal.
We love shopping for beauty products at the best of times, but in the lead up to your wedding, you tend to invest in quality skincare, some special occasion make-up, and of course, lashings of nail polish to make sure your hands are always, “Show me your ring” ready.
If you’re planning to shop all things make-up, skincare and hair products, Sephora has a huge selection of luxurious, affordable, cruelty-free and eco-friendly brands and products, and every day this week they’re offering 50% off select items.
Now that’s a lot of blush for your buck!
