With this bride stuff in your bag, you will be able to get through any problem without worrying too much.
Investing in a wedding planner journal is always a wise choice as it allows you to keep things organized. Buy a wedding planner and customize it with your favorite quote or maybe your name and start listing all the things that you need to get done.
Usually wedding planners have pages like budget pages to have an idea about how much you can actually spend, monthly checklists, and monthly to-do lists, several vendor pages so that you can keep a track of how much you are spending on stationery, your wedding dress, bridal party, venue, cake, florist, photography and music, seating charts, bridal shower pages, bachelorette party pages, honeymoon pages to plan your trip, as well as pages for notes and vows.
Taking care of payments and keeping track of various lists are not easy tasks. Such a wedding planner will allow you to stay on top of things and make sure that your big day goes off without any errors.
If you are planning to have a summer wedding, then you will definitely need this! A stainless steel bridal cup usually keeps drinks cold for about 24 hours and therefore it is perfect for a warm day.
But the cup also keeps drinks hot for 24 hours and that is great especially when you need to run errands early in the morning and you need your coffee. There are bridal cups that come in solid colors, while some can be customized with your name.
At the end of a hectic day, you will want to unwind and relax. Mrs. T-shirt is a really cute bride stuff and it is very comfortable. There are different types of these Mrs. T-shirt available and you can pick one that suits you the best.
As a bride, you should definitely have some fun, but aesthetic items instead of the normal, boring ones. So, ditch those steel hangers and get yourself a customized hanger, which has a colored wire bent to spell your name! Etsy has a few of these hangers which are designed with flowers and they have the wedding date engraved.
Bachelorette parties are fun and you are supposed to get all dressed up. Putting a pretty veil that has "bride to be" printed in foil lettering, over your dress is really cool. These veils are usually short and white or ivory but you can choose a colored veil that goes with your outfit.
Robes are very important as they protect your dress and lingerie while you get your makeup done. But, instead of the heavy ones, you can opt for a prettier robe that will not only serve its purpose but also look good.
So get a knee-length robe to wear while you get your hair and makeup done. Kennedy Blue has a range of rayon cotton robes with floral designs that do not slip off like stain robes and are extremely comfortable.
A medium size tote bag is always a great purchase. Tote bags are not only convenient, but they are also sturdy and can hold quite a few items without breaking or splitting. With a pretty bridal tote, you will, therefore, be able to throw in all the essentials, especially if you are on the go or you are in a hurry.
Jeans jackets are classic and they look great when thrown over a tee or even a short dress. But you might wonder if they are elegant enough for a party before your wedding. Well, since you can get your jacket personalized, you can wear it to your bridal party or even on your honeymoon.
Before the wedding, you will probably be spending a few extra hours trying to get into shape and a soft, comfortable t-shirt is a great option for those workouts. These workout tees are usually made of pure cotton and therefore they absorb sweat and do not get uncomfortable when you wear them for a longer period of time in the gym or even outdoors. You can have them personalized to make them even more fun and quirky.
On the days leading up to the wedding, your bridesmaids and you can have a lot of fun, especially during the bridal shower. And one of the things that you can do, is get matching ponytail holders and put up your hair when you go around town!
These ponytail holders are really cute and they come in different colors. They will prove to be statement hair accessories for you and your friends.
You can never have enough delicate jeweler and a rose gold plated Wifey necklace is really sweet and perfect for your wedding day. These necklaces are elegant and come in different lengths with a charm attached to the chain.
The charm is usually personalized to spell “wifey” or even “bride-to-be” if you want to wear it to your bachelorette.
