What's Hot in Daily Deal Sites for Weddings

Are you signed up with any of the daily deal sites out there? There's a few that are my favorites, mostly because they often carry fun supplies and kits that can be used for weddings and parties. But, there's also fun jewelry nearly every day with many of them. Recently Pick Your Plum {my absolute favorite & the prices are AMAZING} has changed their site and the deals are no longer around for just one day. They've extended the sales to last 72 hours or if they sell out {which they often do}, the sale will end sooner. Today, I've rounded up a select few of my favorites deals that are perfect for your upcoming events {or Halloween}
