Shop To It: Score Wedding Steals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale–Starts Friday!


Every summer, Nordstrom does something totally bizarre in the retail world: They put their new, yet-to-be-released fall merchandise on sale. For two weeks, consumers can snatch up next season’s hottest buys at killer prices during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

This year, the sale starts this Friday, July 20 (prices go up August 6), and we’ve already made our wish lists, natch. But while flipping through the Anniversary Sale preview catalogue, we took note of not only our favorite finds, but also great buys for brides and grooms. So, couples, if you’ve yet to make your own shopping lists, we’ve done the work for you. Check out our picks for engaged guys and gals:

Snake skin accessories are a big trend for fall. Slither, don’t walk, down the aisle in a pair of fashion-forward python boots, booties, or heels. The lighter hue of these three styles complements bridal fashion’s whites, creams, taupes, and ivories. We like the look with gray, blush, and black wedding gowns, too!

Grooms, you’re going to need a new suit, so why not spend your money on a fresh style that won’t cost you and arm and a leg? We love the modern cut of this BOSS Black ‘James/Sharp’ Suit, on sale for just $500.

The ladies aren’t the only ones who can splurge on snazzy new footwear. Gents, forgo those scuffed up work shoes in favor of a shiny new pair, like these styles by Salvatore Ferragamo, Bruno Magli, and Allen Edmonds.

Brides, find your signature wedding scent or pamper your wedding party with gifts of fine fragrance, candles, and body creams. We’re big fans of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb perfume and Voluspa’s pretty, long-burning candles.

Want to wear some bling but don’t want to look like a disco ball? Delicate, feminine jewelry, like these layered necklaces and bracelets, provides just a hint of glint.

Planning a fall or winter wedding? When temperatures drop, dress your bridesmaids in colorful tights. We prefer bright tights like these paired with black or gray dresses to keep from going color overboard.

Not a fan of high heels? You’ll still look fabulous in a pair of festive, dance-floor-ready flats. Try Vera Wang’s  open-toe flat in supple silver leather with crystal accents. These stylish slippers are great for bridesmaids and flower girls, too.

Snatch up these finds during the Anniversary Sale at the new Nordstrom City Creek Center or Nordstrom Fashion Place. Shop extended store hours at both locations on Friday, July 20, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
