Wedding Wednesday Glitter Edition

Maybe I never grew up and am still stuck in third grade art class, but I haven’t found a time when glitter doesn’t bring me joy. Its cute, its fun, and I’m happy to tell you that it is showing up everywhere. Glitter is so versatile that it can either give your event a fun splash of color or be the perfect influence of the elegance you hope to show. There are so many ways to incorporate glitter into your big day, whether it be in small details or large pieces. Dress up champagne glasses, give your flower girl some flare, or save it for the send-off. Regardless of how you choose to display your glitz and glam, know that’s it’s the perfect way to catch your guests’ eye.

Gifts For Your Gal- Get Local!

Regardless of who you are or where you’re from, you are surrounded by sweet treats, fresh ideas, and a store or two that are locally owned. It’s time to step away from the jewelry stores and online shopping, and instead venture out to see what treasures you can get your girl from the store next door. Locally owned businesses tend to go the extra mile and your girl is sure to notice. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.

Bridal Miracle Kit

In just a few short weeks, my beautiful best friend will be marrying the love of her life and just in the nick of time… I think that is finally starting to set in for her. She can’t help herself from worrying about travel plans for guests, last minute décor, and the idea that somehow everything will end up a mess when they finally go to say, “I do.” When she’s in those times of need, I try to remind her that regardless of what happens, she will still walk away the happiest person from that night. What she doesn’t know is that I’m putting together a kit of things to prevent the little catastrophes from taking over her focus on her big day, in order for her to be able to enjoy everything that does go right. If your friend is in need of a bride miracle kit, don’t forget these few items to save the day.

  • Sustenance- a girl’s gotta eat, and chances are the bride is not too focused on that right now. Pack some granola bars, trail mix, or even a cup of goldfish to make sure she is snacking and keeping up her strength
  • Water- Keep your bride hydrated. Chances are she’ll need it when the music comes on and the new couple takes to the dance floor. Make sure she knows you’ll be there to hold her dress when she needs it
  • Sewing kit with extra safety pins- we may not know how to use it, but if the need arises we’ll be prepared! Any loose thread, last minute hemming, or detail falling apart will be no match against her prepared bridesmaids
  • Tylenol, blister treatment, and eye drops- I want to make sure she not only looks the best, but also feels in tip top shape as well
  • Tissues- Yes for her, but mostly for me. Seeing her walk down the aisle and into her future will have me needing a Kleenex or two. Chances are, I’ll also have to pass one to the groom :)

There are so many cute ways to package these and customize them for the bride! Include her wedding colors, pictures of the two of you from the past, and even encouraging notes to get her through the day!

Beach Gift and Date Ideas

Hey, fellas! In need of the perfect gift? I have a simple equation to help you out. For starters, the perfect gift = the perfect date. Here is the simple solution to get it all in one place.

1 beach bag + 1 matching towel + 2 lunches all packed in a picnic basket = 1 Happy girl.

Let your girl enjoy some quality time with you relaxing and basking in the sunshine. Put on some tunes in the car, roll the windows down, and drive to the nearest beach to enjoy the gifts of not only a new tan, but of some time well spent.
