Wedding Day Essentials

8 Jul

Tomorrow is my friend’s wedding; the day is finally here! See her shower & bachelorette.

While I already have my makeup essentials packed, there are some other items that I simply cannot forget for the big day.

  • Button-up shirt: avoid messing up your makeup and hair by wearing a button-up shirt that can be easily taken off. No fuss!  I love any of these cute ones from J.Crew: chambray, ikat, checkered.

  • Champagne: a little bubbly will ease the bride’s nerves and her bridal party’s too. Sip some champagne minis with straws; so cute for pictures!
  • Dancing “shoes”: bring along a cute pair of flats or sandals to dance the night away. Perhaps even coordinate with the other bridesmaids with matching flip flops, as Old Navy has them in every color for just $3.
  • Bridesmaid’s Survival Kit: pick up one of these at a local boutique (or purchase here) and don’t worry about any wardrobe malfunctions or if you forget something. From a folding hairbrush, hairspray, bobby pins, nail file, clear nail polish, to a deodorant wipe, mending kit and more, this pouch has it all!


What other essentials are needed for the wedding day?  Oh, and don’t forget your dress and shoes! This checklist has it all.

For the MOH: wedding day checklist

22 Apr

After months of planning, the day of the wedding comes, and you barely slept the night before, because the bride barely slept the night before.  Your mind is racing, tending to the bride, thinking “I hope I didn’t forget anything!”  Fear not, as I stumbled upon this comprehensive check list for the Maid of Honor. A simple *check* and you know you’ve got it all from your MOH speech, tissues, camera, bobby pins, breath mints, and duh, your bridesmaid dress….but how could you forget that?

Check out their Bridesmaid checklist too.

While you’re at it, might as well get yourself a cute little tote to carry all this stuff in….
