sunflower22:  Whenever I see anything like that, I just have to blame Pinterest. I’ve seen so many variations of that on Pinterest that I think it’s become that thing brides look forward to their morning of. It’s just one more thing that makes the day special. A girl I went to HS with just recentyl did this and all of her girls got coffees that said Maid/Matron of Honor or bridesmaid. It’s just another opportunity to feel “special” the morning of so that every single moment from the time you wake up is about the wedding.

sunflower22:  Is it?  I’ve never seen my friends or friends of friends do this.  Now my husband and I went to starbucks after we got married to celebrate (lame I know) but no we didn’t do anything like that.

It’s probably just a pinterest and wedding blog thing vs. what’s actually done (in terms of popularity).

sunflower22:  Starbucks gives you free coffee if you’re the bride so I’m pretty sure that’s why!

I’ve seen this.  It’s called FOMO “fear of missing out”.  One person posts their Starbucks cup picture and then all of their friends feel that they need to have their Starbucks cup picture too.  FOMO.

sunflower22:  i remember seeing some pin on pintrest showing one of these pics and saying that the bride gets a free coffee on her wedding day…maybe that’s what got everyone going on it?

i had the much more “appropriate” wedding morning drink…a mimosa with mango-orange juice. i might have had 3!

starbucks is such a strange thing to me…i feel like for some people (especially where i live), its a status symbol. like oh i’m about to walk into the salon/grocery store/car repair shop/mall…i MUST look important and fabulous with my starbucks in hand!

a white chocolate mocha from starbucks is my ONCE A MONTH treat. and it is always delicious…but at $6.00 after subbing soy milk plus the high calorie content, its a special occasion ๐Ÿ˜‰

sunflower22:  Mine didn’t say ‘Bride’ it had my name on it (I think) – we had starbucks because we figured it was easier to have something light at the salon instead of trying to cram breakfast in to the schedule (I will admit…I kind of wish my cup had said ‘bride’)

I have seen bridal parties drinking Starbucks, but not with “bride” written on it.  I think they just wanted coffee and there are lots of Starbucks addicts out there.  I didn’t sleep at all the night before the wedding.  I was afraid if I started drinking coffee in the morning while getting ready, I would crash by the time the wedding started at 3.  Instead, I planned to wait until later in the reception to get some coffee when it was put out with dessert, however, I was so busy talking to people I never got around to it.  The adryaline was definitely enough to get me through  ๐Ÿ™‚

sunflower22: I am from the Midwest, and I’ve never heard of this being a “thing.” Not something I’ll be participating in.

 AllieLaLa:  Agreed.

As far as I know its not a thing here, either.  We’ll have Cesars.  ๐Ÿ˜› 

I’ve been banned from any non-clear drinks once the dress goes on (I am a klutz).  So I’ll have to get mine in before hair/make up is finished. 

I have to be honest, I don’t like Starbucks coffee.  I’m a coffee addict, but not SB.

I didn’t realize it was a “thing.”  However Darling Husband and I sure did stop at the starbucks before getting into the car to go to the wedding. Our ceremony was a t 10:00 a.m. and we needed the boost. ๐Ÿ™‚

No idea, but I think most starbucks coffee is gross so I didn’t do any of these photos.  The photos don’t bother me though

Never heard of this “thing” and wouldn’t do it even if I had.

Just like other things- personalized hangers, monogrammed robes etc. anything that can have the word “bride” on it gets marketed and sold!
