As a former bride-to-be and a bridesmaid on many occasions, I (Emma here!) know things can get pretty chaotic leading up to the big day. The least of your worries should be bridal party attire… but it seems that sizes, swatches, fittings, and even shoe color can cause unnecessary craziness before the big day. Instead, stay organized with the essential bridesmaid card – hand-painted + printed onto high quality cardstock by the lovely Loft Life Press – and your entire bridal party can stay in the loop with dress swatches, shoe photos, and appointments in one convenient spot. What does this mean for you? This means you’ll eliminate additional craziness in the weeks leading up to the big day. Plus, you won’t have to vaguely explain the difference between ‘aqua’ and ‘turquoise’ on the phone with a bridesmaid across the country… she’ll have the exact dress swatch right at her fingertips. Read on to see this cleverly crafted card after the jump!
