The Black Friday Cyber Monday Report

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Who doesn't love Black Friday and Cyber Monday!? One year just for fun (and because we were curious), my sister, mom, and I went to the outlet at 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving day and returned home at 5:30 am the next morning.

We said we were only going to go a few hours to see what all the fuss was about. But it turns out we had a lot of fun and got all our shopping done in one fun night out. Oh, to be young and without kids again.

Last week I published my 2020 gift guide to shopping in local in New York. I love my local businesses and want to support them. But some of these places just can't help you if you need a specific piece of lingerie (I'm a die-hard True & Co. fan) or you need a new website.

So, if you've been eyeing any of the products on my Tools & Resources page and have been wondering when to make that big purchase, here's your chance!

Even if you aren't ready to shop yet (or you're reading this after Black Friday), these are also some of my favorite online businesses to support so make sure you pin this so you can come back later!


In this post, I'm summarizing for you all of the wedding Black Friday Cyber Monday specials being hosted by my favorite shops – many of which are also small businesses! From comfortable lingerie to luggage for when we can FINALLY travel, to website templates, you'll be surprised to see that some of your “needs” will be in this list!

And now, my 2020 Black Friday Report:

Stacy K Floral

One of my favorite florists is offering some amazing specials if you're local to Rochester. Use code BLACKFRIDAY online to save 20% on all gift cards 11/25 to 11/30.

If you're able to shop in person on  Small Business Saturday!  The first 20 customers each day will receive a FREE GIFT with their purchase! They're also offering 10% off purchases of $100 or more! Check out last week's post to see all the amazing goodies they have to offer, like the gorgeous Rochester themed gift box above.



My favorite luggage company Away is offering $125 off their newest luggage sets – The Journey Set, The Weekend Set, and The Extra Extras Set.

Last fall I purchased the Away Kids Carry-on for the interns to share during our trip to New York City for my sister's wedding and fell in love, so I asked for the Away Bigger Carry-on for my birthday. I love them so much because they're so easy to pack, beautiful, easy to clean and store (they nest inside each other!) AND have a battery pack so my phone will never die while we're en route. They JUST released The Journey SetThe Weekend SetThe Extras Set and The Extra Extras Set this week and I think they're genius!



True & Co. is offering 20% off and Free Shipping for orders over $75 with the code BIGDEAL20.

Like I mentioned above, I'm a HUGE True & Co. fan. They're the ONLY bras I wear anymore. Seriously. I hate wearing bras. But when I bought my first True & Co. bra, I almost went to bed wearing it because I'd forgotten I was still wearing it! My fave are their V-Neck Bras, which are perfect for under a shirt, sweater, or blouse. I have them in 4 different colors. I also have their Scoop Neck with Adjustable Straps, which is also super comfortable and great under tank tops. Shop now and use the code BIGDEAL20!


Virtual Weddings

Having a virtual component to your wedding is going to be important for many years to come. I outline why and help you figure out which virtual wedding platform is right for you in THIS ARTICLE.

One of the companies I love in the article is LoveStream and they're having a BIG sale for Thanksgiving. Here are the details:

Black Friday – Receive an additional 30 minutes of stream time and a custom e-vite with any package ($150 value)

Small Business Saturday – An additional stream and custom e-vite with a Plus or Premium package (my recommended option and a $250 value!) or a custom e-vite with a Basic package ($50 value!)

Sunday Special – A free website rush and custom e-vite with any package ($100 value!)

Cyber Monday – A $200 discount off the Premium package (the one I recommend to my couples).



While I love supporting my local stationers and printers, I still use Minted for my holiday cards every year.
