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, 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.
