Shop Recommendations

One of my favorite suggestions for engaged couples is to think outside the normal wedding industry retailers. What does that mean? Well, it’s ok if you start at David’s Bridal or Men’s Wearhouse, but if you plan your entire wedding through those stores and their affiliates…you’re probably not getting the best deal in the long run.

Here you’ll find a running list of my favorite retailers, who I’ll post about regularly whenever a particularly big deal comes along. The list will grow as I add an introduction to each retailer, so please let me know if there’s a category you’re waiting to hear about and I’ll re-prioritize.

Happy shopping!
