Amazon can now handle almost every single aspect of your wedding

Amazon may have gotten its start as a book seller, but founder Jeff Bezos knew early on that he wanted it to be "an everything store."

These days, it seems like he's accomplishing that.

On Tuesday, Amazon officially launched a new wedding shop on its Handmade site. Amazon launched Handmade in 2015, ostensibly to compete with the handcrafted marketplace Etsy.

STOCK PRICE FOR AMZN

Full price information

The Handmade wedding shop will sell everything from personalized cake toppers to confetti to veils, and some of the items will be eligible for two-day shipping through Amazon Prime. You can even order your invitations on the site, complete with a custom monogram.

The idea of a dedicated shop for personalized wedding-related items isn't new, and it's something Etsy already does well (for those planning a wedding, Refinery29 did a helpful comparison of the two sites). But the move is notable for another reason: it's one more step toward Amazon's wedding dominance.

Here's what I mean: You can now buy, plan, and coordinate nearly every aspect of your wedding on Amazon.

Need to buy an engagement ring? You can do that on Amazon, and even buy the matching wedding band. Men's wedding bands are available too, and in every material and price range imaginable (Seriously! You can get a titanium wedding band for $11 and it's eligible for two-day shipping).

Forget to RSVP

If you are invited to a wedding and plan to attend, RSVP—and do so early! This way, the couple will know to expect you and will have a seat waiting.

Show Up Late

That time on the invitation? That’s when the bride is going to walk down the aisle. Make sure you get to the ceremony at least 15 minutes before the time stated. You’ll be able to get a great seat, have time to read over the program, and be ready when the music starts!

Getty

Don’t Show Up at All

If you told the couple you’ll be there, you'd better be there! If something changes at the last minute, do your best to give the couple advance notice so they can inform their planner or coordinator and venue manager. That way, your table for 10 won't have two empty seats because you and your date didn’t make it (and hopefully the bride and groom aren’t stuck paying for your dinner).

Getty

Wear White

Self-explanatory. Unless the invitation specifically states that everyone should wear white, wedding guests should choose another color. Same goes for cream, ivory, and teeny floral patterns with a mostly white base. If it could be a wedding/rehearsal dinner/bridal shower dress, skip it!

Getty

Disrespect the Staff

Be polite to anyone working that evening, from the wedding planner all the way down to the busboy. You are a reflection on the couple, so make them look good by being nice!

Getty

Get Trashed

Sure, have a few drinks and enjoy yourself. But know your limit and avoid getting totally wasted. Any sort of drunken breakdown is best left to your own Saturday night, so don’t let it happen in the middle of your friend’s big day.

Once the rings are taken care of, you can shop for wedding dresses and tuxes. The tuxedo shop has a broad range of prices and styles, but you'll still need to get it tailored yourself. There are also 400 pages of wedding dresses if you have the patience to scroll through them all, and Amazon sells mother of the bride and bridesmaid dresses, too. In fact, I recently ordered a bridesmaid's dress for my sister's wedding from Amazon and I couldn't be happier with it.

As it gets closer to the big day, couples can set up their wedding registry right on Amazon's website. It has its own browser extension so you can add products to your list as you search the web, it's easy to share the registry with guests, shipping is free, and Amazon even keeps track of who bought which gift so you can write thank-you notes later.

Officiant: If your officiant is a member of the clergy, you may not be able to tip him or her directly, but you can make an additional donation to the house of worship. For nonclergy, tip around $50.

Getty

Photographer and Videographer: As a general rule, it’s not necessary to tip the owner of the company (which wedding photographers often are), though you could tip $100 or more if you feel so inclined. If there is an assistant, tip the assistant $50 to $75.

Getty

Caterer and Waitstaff: Gratuity (or a service fee) is often included in your total bill. If not (or if you’d like to give a little more), $10 to $20 per person is a nice gesture. Unlike at a restaurant, the waitstaff at your wedding isn’t depending on tips for wages.

Getty

Hair and Makeup: Like at the salon, tip around 15 to 20 percent of the service. You may provide this tip yourself if you’re paying for all of your bridesmaids’ services, or include a tip in the total that they each owe so they can make sure to have enough cash on hand.

Getty

Delivery and Rental Staff: Talk to your vendors about how many people they’ll have on site for your wedding day, then plan to tip $10 to $20 per person.

Getty

Wedding Planner, Baker, Stationer, and Florist: As business owners, these pros won’t be expecting a tip. However, if you really loved their work or felt they went above and beyond, consider putting cash or a check in the mail after the wedding, along with a thank-you card (especially because your planner is the only one of these vendors you’ll probably see on your wedding day). If your planner brought an assistant who did great work, be sure to send over a tip for her or him as well!

Amazon can even handle your wedding flowers. They'll arrange pre-made bouquet, wreaths, and centerpieces, or you can have flowers shipped wholesale so you can DIY your decor. A package of 30 hydrangea stems costs $3.79 per pound on Amazon.

And that takes care of most of the big things — all that's left is food, alcohol, and music. In a pinch, Amazon has a restaurant delivery service, and alcohol delivery is available in a few cities so far via Prime Now (it's a safe bet that more cities will be added soon).

SURPRISINGLY, AMERICAN BRIDES DIDN'T ALWAYS WEAR WHITE.

THROUGH THE 19TH CENTURY, WOMEN IN THE US SIMPLY WORE WHAT THEY CONSIDERED THEIR BEST DRESS, AS WHITE CLOTH WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO CLEAN BY HAND AND WAS RESERVED FOR THE WEALTHY.

TODAY, WHITE IS A GO-TO HUE FOR BRIDES AROUND THE WORLD.

While Amazon lets you book services like landscaping and plumbing through its site, it doesn't yet have DJs or bands for hire, so you're on your own when it comes to music.

Even so, there are a stunning amount of wedding products and services available, and for cheaper than you'd find at traditional wedding sites or stores. While that may not be great news for the boutique wedding industry, it sure is good for couples looking to get married on the cheap.
