So I bought some cute Thirty One bags for my bridesmaids and had their names embroidered on them. My plan is to fill these bags with all kinds of goodies but I need your help For ideas!! My wedding is about and hour and a half away from our hometown so I wanted to fill them with useful things and some things they can keep. We will be away starting the day before my wedding and also the night before so we aren’t driving the day of my wedding. Some ideas I have so far:
travel makeup remover wipes
Travel size lotion
Aleve (you know….in case of a hangover 😉 )
i plan to go to Sephora to see what I can find
i got some cute Thirty One nail files with my purchase so those will go in too
what else could I put in there for my girls?!?
((this isn’t their bridesmaid gift…my gift to them is a spa day with wine and snacks the day before my wedding. They all agreed that they would enjoy that but I guess this is part of it))

@KJA00: How about a pretty little candle in a tin, that seems like it would go well. Or a small bag of chocolates, or caramels from somewhere nice..

In my girls bags, I put a little bridesmaid kit with this poem. It had tons of little useful things.

I got these for my girls for the bachelorette party and they loved them and so do I! I think these would be great for the bags! She worked with me and let me pick out my own fabrics so they all had a different one. You can also personalize them. I got 9 sets unpersonalized for $54!

Some things they may have forgotten to pack, i.e., toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, elastic hair thingies…..

If I was someone’s bridesmaid it would epic to get some Lush products, some hair grips, a little bottle of their favourite drink and mini mixer. A little mirror. Some chocolate.

@KJA00: I did this too, and put in same kind of stuff but also put in fast flats – ballet shoes that are stored really easily in a small purse for when the high heels start to hurt 🙂 A pair for each girl
band aids – same reason as the shoes
bobby pins or cute hair clip
pen with the girls name on it
fun make up

- Wedding: May 2014 - Smithfield Center
I found a store on Etsy that does personalized compact mirrors that were pretty cute.
Also saw some personalized lip balm that were not only cute but inexpensive as well!
Word of caution – robes can get pretty pricey so look around a lot before you buy them!

A card reminding them that they are really lucky to have a friend as awesome as you, and that they should feel really honoured you deign to suffer their inadequacy. I totally think it will make them love you more. Honest.
