Welcome back loves!
As you all probably know by now, I am engaged and I am still freaking out about it! Every girl dreams about their fantasy wedding from a young age and I was no exception. Ever since I was 12, I have known the colors I would want, the season, the style, etc. Literally 12 hours after J popped the question, we were staring at wedding planning binders on the shelf at a Barnes and Nobel in Glendale, AZ.
My first two priorities (after notifying everyone) were
1. a preliminary guest list so we could talk venues
2. our bridal party so I could start Etsy shop stalking cute things to buy all my girls.
In this day and age, I feel like brides can't just simply ask their sisters/friends to be their bridesmaids or maid of honor #thankspinterest. So, I decided to get crafty with it. Now, none of the girls I have chosen live close to me. One is in Massachusetts, the other in Washington, D.C/Tallahassee and the other in Ohio so, I knew that whatever I did would have to be sent away while I anxiously waited their responses.
I browsed through various Etsy shops and countless numbers of pins and came up with this:
Box: hobby lobbyPaints: hobby lobby
Letter Stickers: hobby lobby
Confetti Shreads: hobby lobby
Cardstock for Dress Cards: hobby lobby
'Pearl': hobby lobby
Necklace with Box and Label: Dutch Pearl
Shirts: No Bull Women's Apparel
Ha, of course I couldn't just send these off and wait around for a text "yes" or a boring phone call SO, before sealing the boxes, I slid in a piece of paper that gave them instructions to "facetime the Bride before touching anything else in the box"
|girl, don't kill me.|
Sadly, this was the only reaction facetime I was able to screen shot as the others occurred as I was driving and over a very poor signal but, it's all good! They all replied with an excited "YES!"
Now, since the Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids all got something, we couldn't leave our littles out so, I
We also found a Ring Bearer and Flower Girl book on Amazon so we got those for them as well to explain what their jobs are and to help them get even more excited! And finally, we also got them shirts.
