So every now and then I get really excited and want to shout out to the world “I’m getting hitched!!” and wish I had a “Future Mrs.” or “Bride to be” hoodie or cap, even just to wear at home
Have any of you worn anything like that and where did you get it?

Yeah I have a few things from various places. I say do it while you can b/c when else are you ever going to be a “bride to be?”

Wow, mods work quickly here! I posted in “Beehive” because I didn’t see this section, that’s so awesome that ya’ll are so active 🙂
@Swiss Miss to Bee: Where did you go? I don’t know what to get…

I didn’t get any of the Bride to Be stuff, but I’m not really into things like that. I’ve never even owned an item of college clothing.
PS – I was the one who moved it.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Good catch! 🙂 I went to my post history to see where it went, LOL! I don’t really have a lot of stuff either…I made a hoodie with my name and state on the back but that’s about it…no state, sports, college anything like that…
I don’t think I’d actually wear it out (no one really cares if I’m getting hitched) but I’m thinking maybe a hoodie for home…

I am not really into this stuff, so I kept going back and forth with it. I ended up getting black hoodies and blue tank tops from Joanns and rhinestone bride and bridesmaid iron on transfers; on sale and with coupons. They were pretty inexpensive that way. I am going to iron on the words to the tank tops and embroider our initials on the hoodie. I thought the hoodie would get more wear being black and with just the initials. The tanks were really cheap, so if we only get one wear out of them, it will still pay for itself.

Heehee…this caught my eye. For some reason, I want to get a tank or hoodie that says “bride” or “the future Mrs.___”. I am SO not into those types of things usually. I am almost 39 and wonder if it’s too immature for me to get something like that?

@Birdie Love: I am older than you and I am doing it. I say go for it, if you want. You will never ever get another opportunity 🙂

They have them at Michael’s here. I’m not into that stuff (if you watch Bridezillas, you’ll notice that almost every single one of them sports those things, so I started associating them with spoiled, immature bridezillas even though I know not everyone who wears that stuff fits that mold) so I’m not wearing it. I’m also in my thirties, and think that stuff is more for younger brides. Hasn’t stopped my mom from trying to get me to buy it, though. 😉
I don’t think it’s the same as a college sweatshirt at all. It’s more like wearing a “new homeowner” or a “pregnant” sweatshirt.

I wanted to get something but just never got to it. And just over a month away, I have bigger things & expenses to worry about that I don’t think I’ll end up getting anything 😛 I do think they’re cute tho!

I went to Old Navy and brought a black track suit when they were on sale for $8 each. I am getting ‘Mrs. ___________ 1-1-11’ embroidered on the back of the jacket to wear to the airport when we leave for the honeymoon. (My cousin has an embroidery machine and will charge me a few bucks to do this.) I am getting Mrs. _________ 1-1-11 because I will always be Mrs. ________ and my anniversary will always be on 1-1-11.

I love stuff like this, and some may raise their eyebrows and say it’s “tacky” but I don’t mind being called a dork. You can find some great phrases and designs on the CafePress website.

I have a t-shirt that says “kiss the bride” from VS that I received at my bachelorette party and I have a tote bag that says “here comes the bride on it”
I wore the t-shirt to brunch after the bachelorette party and the night before the wedding. I used the tote bag on my wedding day. It was fun, but I would not use these items for day to day wear outside the house!

@Birdie Love: I’m 44 and considering it!! I say go for it and enjoy being a bride to the fullest!!
