Surprisingly, it doesn’t seem as though nearly as many retailers have released information about their upcoming Black Friday sales when compared to previous years. Regardless, here are a few great wedding-related “Black Friday” 2014 sales in case you or your friends are getting married soon! Even if you nor your friends are not getting married soon, sometimes it’s nice to just find a good deal :)
1) Up to 70% off at Indochino (Custom-Made Menswear)
Indochino produces custom made-to-measure menswear (suits, shirts, pants, accessories, etc.). If you’ve been thinking of having a custom suit made, this is the perfect opportunity! Every man needs at least one well-fitted non-black coloured suit (ie. charcoal, grey, or blue). If you’d like to see and feel the fabrics and materials in-person, be sure to book an appointment at their Toronto showroom located at King St W and Spadina Ave. Coupon Code: BLKFRI. Sale ends Sunday, November 30th.
My recommendations include the Premium Gray Windowpane Three-Piece Suit, the Charcoal Twill Three-Piece Suit, and the Indigo Micro Birdseye Luxury Three-Piece Suit (all 3 are on sale for $450, down from $749, for a savings of 40% off). Select shirts are 50% off ($48 and up) and a few pocket squares are 70% off ($9 and up).
Note: People have had a wide variety of experiences with Indochino ranging from terrible to amazing. Be sure to allow lots of time in advance of your wedding day to allow for alterations and remakes. Otherwise, 40% off full retail pricing on a made-to-measure suit is a tough deal to beat.
2) All Bridal Dresses $199 at Windsor Bridal’s Liquidation Sale
While technically not a “Black Friday” sale, after over 60 years of business, Windsor Bridal has closed its doors and Dansbury Liquidators has taken on the duty of selling off over 6,000 wedding dresses from brands including Alfred Sung, Maggie Sottero, Sottero & Midgley, Pronovias, San Patrick, Enzoani, Essence of Australia and Kenneth Winston. The event is boasting itself as largest bridal liquidation sale in Canadian history! Wedding gowns that would have originally cost anywhere between $500 to $4,500 are now all on sale for only $199 plus HST (which totals to $224.87).
Even after paying for additional alterations from a local seamstress and for the dress to be cleaned, I’m pretty sure that you’d still be coming away with quite a deal. Be sure to visit on a weekday (as it’s much less busy than compared to a weekend day) and bring an extra portion of patience (as I’m sure there’s a ton of stuff to wade through).

1120 Caledonia Road, Toronto, M6A 2W5
(Caledonia Rd and Lawrence Ave W)
According to their Facebook Page, as of Mon, Nov 24th: “We still have over 4,000 gowns to choose from so it is definitely worth the trip! However, due to the amazing response to our sale, we now have a very limited number of dresses sized 0-4 and 22+. Please keep in mind that wedding dresses fit 2 to 3 sizes larger than regular clothing. We still have lots of inventory to move, so come down and check out our selection!”
