My friend V married a French man in Aix-En-Provence on what was supposed to be a gorgeous, sun-soaked day along the Mediterranean. Her chateau wedding was complete with a custom Monique Lhuillier gown, baby’s breath bouquets plucked from local farms, and her reception menu included wine pairings expertly narrowed down by the bride, who runs a food travel guide service in Paris.
While all this was still the case, Mother Nature had a different set of plans for her guests, because V’s wedding date fell on the hottest date of the year. On that sweltering hot week in June, Provence burned well beyond 100 degrees Fahrenheit. With the couple’s ideal outdoor wedding carefully planned, the alarming weather conditions caused the mother of the bride to run to a local French marketplace, where she resourcefully returned to the chateau with at least a dozen fans.
These weren’t your average fans, however. They were state-of-the-art, aesthetically-pleasing, high-tech fans from Dyson. According to several guests, these Dyson fans saved the wedding, and without them, people would’ve fainted from this heatwave. The weather conditions were so deplorable, in fact, that one eventually did—but she happened to be away from the fan at the time.
So, what’s the point? These fans are now on sale because it’s Cyber Monday, a national shopping holiday in the U.S. And while the mother of the bride purchased her dozen or so Dyson fans at full price and retail value (in Euros no less), you can thankfully ward off future heatwaves at your wedding at a fraction of the cost thanks to Nordstrom Rack, which has several Cyber Monday deals that will go fast.
The one point to note is that Nordstrom Rack’s Dyson discounted items are refurbished, which means that they are pre-owned or oversold. However, the good news is they’re the real deal, and they come with a guarantee from the manufacturer. Now, you can get the beloved fan for 55% off, leaving you at a cool deal of just $180 down from $400. The same deal applies to vacuums (you’ve seen these cordless beauties) on sale on Nordstrom Rack for up to 53% off.
If you’re concerned about the latest models, there’s always Amazon, which has plenty of Cyber Monday deals. The site is offering the Dyson Air Multiplier AM06 for $250. Finally, if you want the tower purifier fans or vacuums, only on Cyber Monday can you save at least $220. (That’s the average cost of something for your wedding.) Originally $520, you can snag one of these powerful and nifty fans for $300 on Dyson’s website.
