Stocking Up Online: Cyber Monday Wedding Sales
Image source: Aspect.com
In the past several years, Black Friday has been eclipsed by Cyber Monday, an online shopping extravaganza Americans wholeheartedly embrace. And for good reason: buying stuff online is easy, fast, and with deep discounts, it’s cheap. If you’re shopping for your wedding this is the perfect time to visit those chic online eco-friendly retailers you’ve been ogling. Many of them are online only—they’re too small to have retail stores—but that doesn’t stop them from offering amazing discounts on the biggest online shopping day in the galaxy. You can find gorgeous designer couture for a fraction of the price but beware: in many cases Black Friday sales come with revised return policies. If you’re buying online, it’s doubly important to make sure you can return the item if it doesn’t fit. This year, retailers are paying a lot of attention to mobile devices so you’ll have a great, seamless shopping experience from your phone. So, not only is Cyber Monday convenient from home, it’s convenient from anywhere.

Gaiam is an eco-friendly superstore. They have a wide selection of responsibly made, free-trade, organic and low-impact goods, but the best wedding-related savings (if you ask me) is in their intimates department. These aren’t wedding night intimates, they’re the super comfortable duds you want to be wearing under your wedding dress. They have great organic bras and panties that will stay put so you don’t give your underwear a second thought. Gaiam already has many of their Black Friday/Cyber Monday coupons posted so you can order any time this week.
Last year Inhabitat offered a flash sale: 50% off designer handbags. This year they’re poised to do the same but, like many Cyber Monday offers, we won’t know the details until the day arrives. Be sure to stop by their site. If you’re still in the market for fancy wedding accessories, this is a great place to look. They’ve also got a lot of great eco-friendly gifts, perfect for bridesmaids and family members.
