Black Friday Wedding Deals You Should Shop for in 2023 | Wedding Advice from a VA Wedding Photographer

Wedding Tips

Can you believe we’re already talking about Black Friday? I don’t know about you but 2023 has been such a whirlwind. I digress… We all know that planning a wedding can be an expensive affair. Every bride wants to make the most of her budget without compromising on the quality of her special day. Luckily, Black Friday wedding deals offer brides the opportunity to save big on their wedding purchases.

From wedding dresses to decor, there are plenty of things that you can buy at a discount during Black Friday sales. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the best deals that brides can take advantage of during this shopping extravaganza.

Black Friday Wedding Deals to Look for in 2023

Wedding Dresses & Bridal Accessories

Choosing the perfect wedding dress can be a daunting task, especially when you’re on a tight budget. But Black Friday sales offer excellent discounts on wedding dresses, making it easier for brides to find their dream dress without breaking the bank. I recommend looking for deals at popular bridal stores like David’s Bridal, BHLDN, and Kleinfeld Bridal.

Once you’ve found your dream dress, it’s time to accessorize it with the perfect veil, jewelry, and shoes. Black Friday sales offer great deals on bridal accessories, making it easier to find the perfect finishing touches for your wedding day look. Look for deals on popular bridal accessories brands like David’s Bridal, BHLDN, and Etsy.

Bridesmaid Dresses & Groomsmen Attire

Black Friday deals are a gift for your wedding party, too. It’s not cheap to be a bridesmaid, but you can make it easier for your best friends to say “yes” by choosing their attire in time for Black Friday! Online retailers like Azazie, Kennedy Blue, Birdy Gray and more often run great sales during November. This is also a great time to check out Men’s Wearhouse, Macy’s, Indochino, or Generation Tux to see what deals they can offer your Groomsmen.

Wedding Decor

Wedding decor can quickly add up and eat into your budget. But Black Friday sales offer a great opportunity to save on decor items like centerpieces, tablecloths, and other decorative elements. For my DIY Girlies, look for deals at popular retailers like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and Amazon. Also, there are beautiful extra elements like linens, runners, and arch drapery that you can purchase from Ling’s Moments. If you’re looking for unique decor items, check out Etsy for handmade and personalized decor pieces.

Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitations are an important part of your wedding planning process. But sending 125-250 invitations can add up and get quite expensive. But Black Friday sales offer great deals on wedding invitations, making it easier for you to create the perfect invites without spending a fortune. Look for deals at popular wedding invitation retailers like Minted, Shutterfly, and Zazzle – or ask Caligraphers and Stationers on Etsy or in your local market if they plan on running any deals for bulk orders.

Bonus cost saving tip: If you love the look of a custom, luxury invitation suite, ask your local stationer if they would be willing to do a single package invitation that can be given to your photographer to photograph with your bridal details, or a small package to send only to close family rather then your entire guest list. Then send cheaper invites to the rest of your list, or opt for a digital invitation that links to your wedding website for RSVPs!

Wedding Shoes

Black Friday is a great opportunity to save money on wedding shoes. I’m a sucker for a statement bridal shoe. Brands like Bella Belle, Betsey Johnson, Badgley Mischka and others are just stunning and so special to wear on your wedding day. Start by checking out major retailers’ websites for any major markdowns. You can also follow your favorite shoe brands on social media to stay updated on their Black Friday promotions, as some more luxury brands may limit these to November 24th.

Engagement, Bachelorette, & Bridal Shower Outfits

Wedding planning comes with a lot of work, but also a lot of celebrating! With events from an engagement party to a bridal shower to your bachelorette, your closet is soon to have no lack of white dresses for each affair. Consider checking out your favorite retailer for white outfits and seeing what Black Friday deals they’re currently running. Also, stores like BHLDN, Lulus, Nordstrom, Rent the Runway, Anthropologie and more are great places to start.

Bridal Styling Details

Every photographer loves a good styling kit for wedding details. It’s how we achieve those Pinterest-worthy flat lays of your invitation suite and jewelry. While I always bring details of my own to dress up these photos for you, I also love when Brides provide items that feel uniquely theirs to personalize the photo. Consider finding your own new ring box(es), ring dish, ribbons, and more to ensure your bridal details images speak to you and your wedding theme/personality.

Honeymoon Packages

After all the wedding planning and festivities, it’s time to relax and enjoy your honeymoon. Black Friday sales offer great deals on honeymoon packages, making it easier for you to plan the perfect romantic getaway without breaking the bank. Look for deals at popular travel companies like Expedia, Travelocity, and Priceline.

In conclusion, Black Friday sales offer brides the opportunity to save big on their wedding purchases. From wedding dresses to decor, there are plenty of things that you can buy at a discount during this shopping extravaganza. So, if you’re planning a wedding, be sure to take advantage of the Black Friday deals and make the most of your budget. Happy shopping!
