the girls that stand beside you on your wedding day. the ones who share your first toast of the day over mimosas + pampering. the girls who promise to be by your side on the dance floor. but importantly, the ones who have always been there. and will now be bridesmaids on your big day.
I want “my day” to be as fun for them as it is for me.
a weekender tote for all of their essentials.
a bauble bar statement necklace + stud earrings.
a kate spade best friend bangle.
a colorful jersey knit robe for our morning of pampering.
bright lipstick + nail polish.
the prettiest, sparkly sandals.
a minimergency kit. for just in case.
and a flask. because why not?
being a bridesmaid can be stressful + demanding, make it fun for the girls that mean the most in your life. enjoy the day together.
a pre-wedding discussion, [J] & I had shortly after our engagement was our wedding party. we initially spoke about not having one. we’ve both been in weddings before, and know it’s not just “yes, I’ll wear a fancy outfit & be there on your big day”. it’s requires a larger commitment; both financially + physically. and we were already asking a lot having our wedding out of the country.
“how about a small one?,” I later asked.
the friends who have been there for us through thick + thin. always. we agreed. and decided two each. and this is how I asked ..
custom champagne bottles + flutes and woven bracelets.
I even got my own custom champagne flute.
and our entire wedding party, in whiskey + champagne bottles .. :)
my bridesmaids [kristy + courtney] & my fiance.
I feel so blessed to have them both in my life. they’re gems + mean so much to me. I truly thought I’d have to beg them to pack their bags & come to the dominican republic with us. but they both said “yes” without hesitation. throughout our friendships, I’ve always been able to count on them ..and this time is no different.
never mind that they’re the two people in my life I know will tear up the dance floor with me. and make [J] & I’s “special day” even better.
I can’t freakin’ wait.
