Save Big by Shopping Post-Valentine's Day Sales
Our friends at BeFrugal.com shared some awesome tips for saving big money on stuff for your Big Day by taking advantage of post-Valentine's sales. Check them out:
Get Your Decorations for Less:
The day after Valentine’s Day, many stores will start clearing out their Valentine-themed decorations. You can find plenty of heart-shaped décor for at least half the original price as well as anything that comes in typical holiday colors: red, pink and white. If you are in need of tableware or paper products for a bridal shower, bachelorette party or other casual wedding events, this is the perfect time to stock up on those items in order to get a great deal. Look for light-up “LOVE” marquee letters, romantic heart-shaped garland, and heart-shaped balloons – more great ideas for wedding décor.
Save on Flowers:
Flowers for a wedding can be one of the most expensive parts of a wedding budget. If you are DIYing any wedding decorations with artificial flowers, check out craft and box stores for discounted prices on white, red and pink items.
Whether you are in need of jewelry for yourself or as a wedding gift, start looking right after Valentine’s Day. A lot of the jewelry that was specifically advertised for the holiday will start going on sale so that retailers can begin to make room for other products. It’s a great time to check out prices on wedding rings, necklaces for your bridesmaids, cufflinks for the groomsmen, and more.
Anyone in need of special treats for their guests will find the best sales starting February 15th. Heart-shaped chocolates, and fun-sized treats perfect for favors or hotel gift bags can be found up to 70% off and the best part is they typically have a long shelf life.
