After Christmas Wedding Shopping

By now, you and your family have probably made a big dent in the Christmas leftovers, the wrapping paper is in bags ready for the garbage truck, and unwanted gifts have been returned or exchanged. I hope that your holidays were wonderful and full of warm memories, but now that they are over, it is time to start planning your wedding and take advantage of all those after Christmas sales.

  1. Pick your colors and as you go through the piles of extra Christmas decorations, you can pick ones that match your color scheme to use at your wedding. All those Christmas bells can be re-purposed and used as wedding decorations or incorporated into a centerpiece…of course tree trimming balls work too…just let your imagination run wild.
  2. Buy candy to put up a candy buffet or to give out as favors. Right after Christmas (and Halloween too), candy goes on sale for next to nothing, so now is the time to stock up. If you picked red and green as your wedding colors, double bonus!
  3. Jewelry tends to also be really discounted after the holidays, so now is the time to shop for wedding rings or matching jewelry sets for you and your bridesmaids to wear on W day.
  4. Go dress shopping. There are going to be a ton of events surrounding your wedding: engagement party, rehearsal dinner, and maybe even a brunch or lunch the day after. Plus bridal showers and other festivities. So take advantage of the deep discounts on party dresses now and be prepared to put your best forward for any event that comes up.
  5. The same goes for shoe shopping. (I love shoes and think I have a serious addiction).
  6. Update your address book. You just got all those Christmas cards from family and friends, so now is the time to make sure your address book is up to date for sending out save the dates and wedding invitations.
  7. Since New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, now would be the time to try out your new hair style or make up that you are thinking about for your wedding day. This way you get other people’s opinions too.
  8. The end of the year is here too, so it is a good possibility that wedding dresses are also on sale, especially the styles that were put out for winter. So, if your wedding is in early spring or late fall, you just might find the dress of your dreams on sale for a great discount.

I hope that these tips help you get your wedding planning started and well on its way to becoming a full fledged vision for your wedding day. A special thank you to Christine Dryer of Bridal Tweet for getting me started on my own list for using holiday sales to plan your wedding.
