Party Mode Part I and II for my baby girl's 1st Birthday Party (in 5 weeks) has been successful! I decided to take a break this week from party planning and will continue next week with Part III.
This week one of my dear friends has been on my heart. I love my Maria so very much and she is getting married in 3 weeks! I am really excited to see this beautiful woman tie the knot with such a great guy! I know that she must excited too, because tomorrow marks her wedding month. I also know that every bride wants to be prepared as much as possible for the BIG day! I wanted to do all that I could to help my girl out. I decided to make her a "Bride Emergency Kit!" Before I started this project I came up with the name of kit, " Always a Bridesmaid but today A Bride Emergency Kit!" The Bride-to-be is a friend to MANY and has been a bridesmaid in PLENTY of weddings. It takes more than 2 hands to count all the weddings in which she has wore a bridesmaid dress. One of those weddings was mine!
Recycled Nordstroms Gift Box
Dollar Spot(Target) Card Making Kit
Two sided tape
Below is what the emergency kit will provide for any OMG moments on the big day!
Got list of things from pinterest:
1. BAND-AIDS: Fix the ring bearer’s boo boo or a bridesmaid’s blister. 2. BREATH MINTS: Chewing gum doesn’t look good on anybody. 3. CLEAR NAIL POLISH: Stop that run in your stockings…or the MOB’s stockings, anyway. 4. BOBBY PINS: Dancing messes up your up-do. 5. TISSUES: Daddy’s little girl is getting married! 6. DEODORANT: Someone’s gonna need it. 7. WHITE NAIL POLISH: *If the bride has a french manicure. If not, pack their color. 8. LOTION: No ashy elbows or knees in those pictures, ladies! 9. ASPIRIN: It’s gonna be a looooong day. 10. COMPACT MIRROR: For quick touch-ups. 11. HAIR SPRAY: Can someone say, “Flyaways?” 12. ANTACID: See #9. 13. DRINKING STRAWS: Sip drinks without messing up your lipstick. 14. LINT ROLLER: The boys will probably need this…and not a single one of them will bring one. 15. SNACKS: For Heaven’s sake please don’t forget to eat! 16. EYE DROPS: See #12. 17. SAFETY PINS: Last-minute fix to any misbehaving outfits or boutonnieres! 18. STAIN REMOVER: If the worst should happen, BE READY. 19. WATER: Make sure everyone stays hydrated. It’s best for pics AND the next morning :) 20. STATIC GUARD: Especially with light fabrics like chiffon, this is a must! 21. SEWING KIT: Emergency button repair.
Last year I was in a wedding with my dear friend and I witnessed her wearing yet ANOTHER pretty bridesmaid dress. This year, this month, and in three weeks I will witness her wearing a beautiful white wedding gown and standing next to her handsome groom!
