A Prime Place to Shop for Your Wedding

Last year I reconnected with a childhood family friend who had just recently gotten married. I happened to be at his parent’s house when he showed them his wedding photos for the first time. As I remarked about how pretty the decorations and flowers were, his bride said, “I got them on Amazon”. Flowers from Amazon? Then his bride, Monica, told me that almost her entire wedding came from Amazon. I couldn’t help but be intrigued. So, I did a little digging.

Read on for an overview of items you can purchase from Amazon to make your wedding day a prime success.

Invitations

If you’re a DIY queen, Amazon may be a great place to look to help create your wedding invitations. You can purchase individual pieces and put the invitations together yourself, or even purchase a kit with all the necessary elements.

This classic-style invitation kit is under $40 for 25 invitations.

And while you’re picking stationary, don’t forget thank you cards.

Fashion

Monica purchased her wedding fashion from Amazon and looked absolutely stunning on her big day. From veils to accessories, Amazon has it all.

Recently, Amazon has even begun to partner with designers like Oscar de la Renta. Amazon’s designer section is also a great place to look for wedding shower dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses, and even bridesmaid dresses. I’ve seen this mother-of-the-bride dress in person and it’s gorgeous!

And if you’re nervous about purchasing a dress without trying it on in person, there are usually great return policies using Amazon. Just make sure you purchase far enough in advance to get any necessary alterations.

Amazon even has options for the groom and groomsmen at your wedding.

Flowers

From individual stems that you can arrange yourself to premade bouquets and boutonnieres, Amazon has plenty of faux floral options for the budget-savvy bride. You can even purchase garland and sprays for your ceremony décor.

This 22-piece combo pack of flowers comes in various colorways and is around $25. One bride even mentioned that she used the sprays to top her wedding cake.

Décor

From cake toppers to wedding arches, Amazon can be a great place to look for wedding décor items.

Since 2023 is the year of the wedding party, consider a personalized neon sign for your reception. This option is under $150 and has great reviews.

Favors

Let’s face it, wedding favors can get expensive.  Amazon has a multitude of options from magnets to ornaments to bottle openers. Some options can even be personalized.

For a spring or summer wedding, seed packs are a great idea and even help “give back” to the earth. Spread a little love for under $30 with this 25-pack of poppy seeds.

Guest Books

Whether you’re looking for a traditional guest book or a fun alternative, Amazon is a good resource. We love this memory-building Jenga set for under $30.

Registry

When thinking about planning your wedding and shopping on Amazon, don’t forget that they have wedding registry options. This can be great for friends and family who may not even be able to make it to your big day but want to provide a gift.

 

If you’re planning a wedding, Amazon is a great place to look for budget-friendly (and even designer) options. But we encourage you to shop local as well. If you’re in Central Virginia, consider shopping Celebration Bridal, Gilded, Mosaic Collective, Bloom by Doyle, Irvington Springs Farm, Downtown Lynchburg Farmer’s Market, Church Street Bridal, and many others.
