- Wedding: June 2011
This has been a long road. But I finally did it. I have ALMOST completed my bridesmaids gifts. After looking at about a million options I found the first step. And it sounds simple but they turned out amazing!! I found a seller on ebay who does customizations at an amazing price! So I ordered 9 tote bags in my wedding colors. Brown with cream font. I also got to choose the font. I chose a very romantic french script. This seller was so great! She worked with me and added a lot more text very cheap. I have one that says “Nadia” and under that it says “special attendant to the bride” And she didn’t charge me much to add it all!! Most customization people wanted to charge a fortune in the first place then charge another small fortune for extra letters. I was very happy with the outcome of these bags! They look amazing. I will add a picture soon. Here is a link to her store……
I can’t wait to show you all pics 🙂
Well needless to say my next task was much harder! Filling the bags!! What will I put in them??!! I am on a strict budget so I couldn’t go over board…. So I looked and looked and looked and looked……
At first I was going to persanalize the items in each of the bags to each girl. Then I realized that was VERY difficult. I have 8 girls standing and photographer who will be sort of IN the wedding party. She is a good friend and is sad because she is always the photographer and never gets to stand so I am incorporating her into the bridal party as much as I can………. which includes a gift. Soooo I finally decided on …… ROBES…. I know I know very common. But I think I will go to our local Embroidery shop and see what they can do for me. I am really trying to make it personal so they all feel pampered and special. I will also be heading up to bath and body works and filling the remaining space in each girls bag with wonderful pampering items. 🙂 I can’t wait.
It’s aroma therepy. 🙂 I really hope all my girls feel special and pampered on my big day along with me of course! 🙂
