Look for these local wedding deals on Black FridayWritten by Brittany Craig | | email@example.com
Black Friday isn’t just for holiday gift-giving sales. Oh, no! It can bring on a totally different meaning if you are a bride-to-be.Deals are to be had and I’ve got some that will take the cake.
If you snooze, you lose on some great deals at Ragazza in Perrysburg. Shop classic styles with a hip twist. The shop has dresses and gowns perfect for bridal showers and wedding celebrations. Take advantage of summer clearance items for tropical honeymoons and 2011 summer weddings. Doors open at 6 a.m. with 30 percent off. If you get there at 7 a.m. you will receive 20 percent and after 8 a.m., 10 percent off. So don’t be late!
Run, run Rudolph! The first 30 people through the doors at Fiddle Stix Boutique at Levis Commons will receive a free Vera Bradley tote valued at $48. Check out the retired Vera Bradley styles to receive 25 percent off totes and bags, perfect for bridesmaids’ gifts.
The tulle will be flying as thousands of gowns go on sale at Gallippo’s Bridal and Formal in Toledo. From bridal gowns to formal attire, to shoes, accessories and veils, everything in the store will be 25-80 percent off. “Nothing will be held back,” Yvonne Gallippo said. This great sale includes new 2011 styles.
To accessorize your wedding day look, head over to Puttin’ On the Glitz in Perrysburg, where everything is 20 percent off and more. Tailor your look with tiaras and custom-designed Swarovski crystal jewelry. There is a lot to see and shop. “It’s pretty much anything you would need for your ceremony or reception,” said Kelly Heuss. You’ll find crystal monogrammed cake toppers and servers, toasting flutes, guest books and unity candles — all on sale. A selection of invitations for showers, rehearsal dinners and weddings will also be on sale.
Starting Black Friday through Dec. 1, you can enjoy two great offers from Grand Lubell Photography. Take $500 off its Creative License Photography package which includes all-day coverage with one photographer and digital negatives. Or take $500 off its famous Photoboothlive, an interactive media that allows you to snap 15 friends at the click of a remote.
Waiting in line? Then dial the phone for a great offer from Bartz Viviano by scheduling a consultation before the end of the year with wedding floral designer Ann Strickland. Brides who book their wedding before the end of the year will receive a free bridal bouquet.
As Jane Wurth, owner of Ragazza said, “Men go deer hunting at 6 a.m. Women go shopping.” So while your groom-to-be is out enjoying the hunt, so can his bride. Happy hunting, to all the Black Friday brides!
