Nobody loves putting together a gift basket quite like I do, so when it came to asking my favorite gals to be in our wedding, I decided to go all out! Would y’all expect anything less?! Together, my bridesmaids and I have been through high school, heartbreak, death, babies, adventures and so much more. I wanted to not only tell each of them just how precious they are to me, but also to spoil them with some of my most favorite things! Here’s the breakdown on how I asked my bridesmaids to be in our wedding.
To start, I used my Canon PIXMA printer and 100 pound weight linen cardstock to print out customized cards for each bridesmaid. Inside, along with a note, I included a Polaroid of a special memory of the two of us, printed on my Instax Mini LiPlay printer!
Next, I filled a fair trade Moroccan basket (sourced by Tate + Tiegs, duh!) with six of my favorite beauty products and a bit of sparkle to wear on the wedding day.
Kopari Coconut Melt: one beauty product, endless uses! This coconut melt is perfect as an all-over-moisturizer, cuticle oil, lip balm, makeup remover and much more.
Kai Linen + Room Spray: smells like a warm summer day in Hawaii!
Kai Hand Lotion: for my gals on-the-go, from a nurse to a mamma of three to a lawyer, my bridesmaids are badasses with little time for self care! This luxe hand cream is the perfect product to keep in the car for some mid-day relaxation.
Gorjana Huggie Hoop Earrings: my go-to for delicate, beautiful jewelry at an affordable price! I love how simple and sparkly these Gorjana huggies are.
Coola SPF Sun Silk: this goes on just how it sounds…silky smooth! It’s the perfect base layer before we all get our make-up done on wedding day.
Coola Spray Sunscreen: we’re headed to sunny and HOT Palm Springs for my bachelorette party, so some spray-on SPF was an absolute must!
Coola Makeup Setting Spray: y’all know I love this spray! I’ve been using it for years to set my makeup, and even without makeup, to spray on as a final touch before walking out the door.
