A new bride? Congrats! You are probably going off the rails with lists, responsibilities, ideas, and high blood pressure. Being prepared can save you a lot of stress and grief later and we want to lend a hand, that’s why we made this list of essential things for you to purchase beforehand so there won't be any last-minute mess-up.
A few months before the wedding is when brides start making lists. All these things need to be in it: jewelry, a robe, Jacket or wrap, an extra set of skin color lingerie, flats (you can't do everything in heels!), makeup bag (with make-up remover), emergency kit (have painkillers in there too!), a first-aid kit (must have band-aids), snacks bag with lots of chocolate and a bottle of water with a straw (you'll thank us later).
Bride entourage essentials!
As a bride, you'll also have to buy a lot of things for your bridesmaids. Special gifts and favors are obvious but there are also more things to think about. Extra phone charges, food and water, bridesmaid's bouquet, matching shawls (if you are going for matching outfits), mini steamer, stain remover, toiletries bag (with tissues, wipes, deodorant, perfume, nail file, bobby pins, and at least one travel size mirror), a pair of scissors and of course a bottle of bubbly!
Whether you hire a professional wedding planner or sure your venue will take care of everything it’s better to have a few things on your list just in case. Welcome sign, a notepad and pen, a guestbook, envelopes (for tips), thank you cards, confetti, backdrop and a Flower girl basket. Make sure you know who oversees the big things like aisle runner, altar backdrop, wedding cake, flower arrangement, etc. before adding/taking them off your list.
We all agree that the wedding dress is number one on any future bride's shopping list. Let us help you find the one, in the most relaxed vibe, and lots of fun! Click here to book a fitting today and say yes to your dream dress.
