*Wahoo! Another Prime Day is Coming up on October 10th & 11th! Grab your deals now!
Amazon Prime Day is coming up on July 11th and 12th, and I’ve been seeing a lot of posts in wedding groups about what wedding related items people have on their Amazon Prime shopping list. I thought I’d share my thoughts on the best Amazon Prime Day Wedding Deals for you to keep an eye out for!
Please note, this is NOT a sponsored or affiliated episode or blog post, and I’m not sharing specific products for you to purchase, just the categories or items that I think have the best potential for savings!
Wedding Party & Family Gifts
Prime Day is a great opportunity to snag some of the gifts that you might want to give your parents and wedding party. Common items for gifts could be:
Jewelry to wear on the wedding day
Robes or shirts for getting ready
Fun, unique socks
Custom bags for them to use on the wedding day
Cups/mugs with their names
You can also snag some pre-wedding beauty supplies the you’ve maybe been looking for a reason to splurge on. Just make sure to try them out first well in advance of the wedding day! These might include:
Face or eye masks for the morning
Teeth whitening products
Serums or creams for skin care
Hair treatments or appliances
Day of hair and makeup supplies, if you’re not hiring a professional to do this for you
Welcome Bag Supplies
If you’re thinking of doing hotel welcome bags, you can grab supplies for that, including the bags or boxes themselves, tissue paper or filler, and the snacks, candy, or hangover kit items you’ve been thinking of adding in.
Ceremony & Reception Items
Moving on to the items to use for the ceremony/reception, Prime Day could be a perfect opportunity to pick up things like:
Detail photo props - ring box, perfume bottles, jewelry box, and dress hangars
Ceremony arch or pew/aisle decor
Favors, or favor packaging - make sure to listen to Episode 59 on wedding favors first!
Candles - flameless or real (don’t forget the batteries!)
Foam glow sticks/sparklers
Poloroid cameras and film
Photo Booth props
Paper for stationery items
Dishware (if needed) - you can find real or disposable on Amazon. Don’t forget the dishes for appetizers and dessert!
Napkins - for cocktail hour or the bar
Bathroom basket supplies
Flip flops and a basket for dancing feet
And if you’ve been looking for some DIY projects, I’ve heard that the Cricut brand products will be on sale, so make sure to check that out!
Outdoor Wedding Supplies
If you’re having an outdoor wedding, Prime Day can also be a great opportunity to grab some pedestal fans and umbrellas, in case of rain or extreme heat. These are great items to stock up on, but make sure you’re able to return them if you don’t end up needing to use them. And a tip for the umbrellas, large clear umbrellas, or black golf umbrellas are the best to use in photos!
Check the pre-sale pricing. Unfortunately, some vendors take advantage of the traffic and increase pricing before the sale, just so it appears to be marked down for the sale.
Most Prime items are returnable, but make sure to confirm before purchasing!
Many non-amazon retailers have storefronts, so if you have anything on your Etsy, Shein, or other lists, see if they have a storefront on Amazon that will be offering deals next week
You can also use Prime day for Bachelor/Bachelorette party items and outfits, as well as those items or outfits you may need for the honeymoon!
If you have other items or deals you're planning on grabbing, make sure to share them over at the Wedding Planning Collective Facebook Group.
