Summer brides are here!! Everywhere I look, I see either a bachelorette party in progress, a bustling bride running last minute errands or a beautiful lady in her embelished mound of fluff & toule on her S P E C I A L day.
Case in point, my sister tied the knot recently. Of course we had to celebrate her BIG day with the traditional bachelorette party.
However, not going with the traditional broo-haha’s, my sis asked for a more subdued weekend with the girls.
And that is exactly what she got. The girls took a road trip, stayed at a moderate hotel and the main focus was shopping and good food. Girls weekends are hard to top.
Being the maid of honor, I had to get this bride-to-be a FAB bachelorette gift bag. My journey in stores & on-line only led me to a path of cheesy, cheesy, CHEESY novelty items I’d be embarrassed to show my papa!
My inner Martha (she comes out every now & then) surfaced and tada…my sweet & simple bridal token was created. Here are a few ideas on how to create yours if you need a little inspiration:
1.) The most important part: The BAG!
I chose a solid pink color to match my sister’s wedding theme, spruced it with polka dot tissue & found an initial letter at Michael’s craft store of her soon to be last name
2.) Fill your fun-filled with BAG with items that compliment a wedding & are useful to the B r i d e.
A list of goodies to fill your Bride’s bag:
*Bride tank top
*Bridal Sleeping Mask
*Thank you cards for her to write as a new BRIDE
*Fun pens to use to write those t.h.a.n.k you cards!
*Bride & Groom “how well do you know each other” game to play on Honeymoon
*Cosmetic quilted bag that has BRIDE monogrammed on the front
*His & Hers Luggage Tags
*Candy the Bride likes to snack on for the trip
(Note: For our girl trip, we all bought matching pajamas to wear on our trip. Who knew that one little detail would be so much fun!)
With these special touches in your gift bag, the BRIDE will be flattered you thought of all the little details!
