Be My Bridesmaid Balloon Kit

by petite25

ABOUT

A fun way to ask that special girl in your life to stand by your side— with a secret message in a balloon. When she pops the balloon (with the safety pin) your message as well as a burst of confetti will fill the air. Great for bridal showers, favors or revealing a secret message. A definite BURST of fun to get the party started!

Set includes: gift box, balloon filled with confetti, gift tag, Pop Me! tag adhered to the box, your message and satin ribbon. The message will read: “It’s my turn to ‘pop’ the question. Will you be my …?”

Cute Bridesmaid Dress Hangers

We’ve shared some awesome dress hangers for the bride in the past, but today we’re sharing a cute gift idea for bridesmaids: you guessed it, personalized dress hangers! These are a fun way to snap a getting ready photo before the wedding with your dresses all hanging in a row. Bridesmaids will love them because they’ll have a keepsake hanger to use on a favorite dress for years to come. We spotted these at Deighan Design.

Beach Wedding Rings for Bridesmaids Gifts

Are you planning a beach themed wedding? This post is for you! Be sure to subscribe for posts straight to your inbox.

Hi, lovelies! If you’re planning a wedding on the beach this summer, there’s one themed gift that bridesmaids will enjoy for years to come. We spotted these beach wedding rings over at The Manerovs, maker of insanely gorgeous handmade (and hand-sculpted) jewelry. Their stacking rings are some of my favorites, especially their sea-inspired finds resembling coral, seashells, and starfish. There are even some gorgeous raw gemstones. These beach wedding rings would make wonderful gifts for your bridesmaids this season, and don’t forget a little something blue or sea-inspired for yourself, too.

Beach Wedding Rings

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be this entire stacking set. Take a look at that raw gemstone — it’s gorgeous.

Why Glassware Makes an Obviously Awesome Gift

Looking for personalized glassware gifts? You’ll love what we’ve rounded up today! Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss a thing!

I drink lots of coffee everyday, usually out of my trusty ol’ personalized E mug and that is a fact. And I love the heck out of that thing. I think it cost a total of $3 on an end-cap at Target and Andrew picked it up for me one day. You see, there’s got to be a science behind it because people love to drink out of personalized glassware. People adore mugs with quirky sayings, like telling everyone your coffee is on fleek or that you do these three things everyday. Some people need a visual reminder to, you know, get their sh!t done and to respect the hustle. You see, people go nuts over glasses with caricatures of themselves and pop culture tie-ins, like telling everyone you drink more coffee than a Gilmore, or stayed up late to watch Fallon and his EW! segment. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re a little bit Ron Swanson and hate talking to people about things. And that’s okay because not everyone is a morning person and it’s important to keep your priorities straight.

And it’s not just coffee mugs, you guys: it seems even champagne tastes better when sipped out of a personalized glass.

That’s because in some weird way, we like our personalized glassware. It shows off our personalities. It gives us a little giggle in the morning when all you want to do is lay in bed and stay warm. And if you love personalized glassware gifts like I do, then you’ll love today’s post because I wrote it just for you. Here are some personalized glassware gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Let’s get started, shall we?

Personalized Glassware Gifts

First of all, personalized glassware gifts are the greatest because:

1. People will USE THEM.

Nothing is worse than a gift they can never, ever use, and

2. They will find them quirky and fun.

Especially if you go digging and find something personalized that you just know they’ll get a kick out of.

How to Plan a Gatsby Wedding: Part 1 – Bridesmaids

Want to plan a Gatsby wedding? We’ll help you with our new series, How to Plan a Gatsby Wedding, kicking off the fun with some bridesmaids dresses. Check them out below. Be sure to join the list so you don’t miss the other upcoming four posts on this series.

Are you dreaming of a Gatsby-inspired wedding, but you have no idea where to start? You’ve come to the right place! We’re sharing part one of this fun new series launching today. We’re starting with bridesmaid dresses so you can get an idea of different colors and styles, handpicked from retro / mod style expert, ModCloth. Remember: when you pick a bridesmaid dress, it doesn’t have to look like a typical bridesmaid dress. Attire that your girls can wear again is a plus — and many of these dresses are more affordable than your “typical” bridesmaid dresses. You don’t have to outfit each bridesmaid in the same style, either: pick a favorite hue and let your girls select dresses that are similar, but unique in neckline, fit, or style.

We’re focusing on 1920s era dresses today, given that it is a Gatsby wedding theme. In this style, you’ll find fringe, sparkles, and unique necklines. Take a look at some of our suggested dresses and tell us what you think!

Spring and summer are right around the corner, which means lazy days on the beach are finally on the way! If you’re planning a bachelorette bash at the beach, you’ll love this DIY bridesmaid beach bag gift idea. We’ve pieced together our favorite essentials for your girls including an essential tote bag, sunnies, flip flops, an adorable sun hat, beauty products, and more. Enjoy!

DIY Bridesmaid Beach Bag

What’s in the Bag

Tote Bag

We love this new canvas tote with aqua stripes. It has enough room for her swimsuit, towel, change of clothes, and everything you see here. By Thirty One Gifts, where you can get it embroidered, too.

LOVE Bracelet

This gold jewelry piece is simple and oh-so-sweet. It’s the perfect everyday bracelet she can wear to the beach — and beyond. By Ava Hope Designs.

Embroidered Towels

She can lay out in style on her own personalized beach towel. These are by Memento.

Bridesmaid Sunglasses

These fun bridesmaid sunglasses can be worn on the beach + at the wedding! Spotted here.

Flip Flops

These aren’t just ANY old flip flops. They have custom sayings that leave your mark in the sand! Our fave for this bag? “Follow me, bring wine”. There are more available, too! By Sand Imprint Sandals.

Floppy Sun Hat

I’m ordering this one stat. If you need a floppy hat (I mean, really, who doesn’t?) then this is one that’s inexpensive AND adorable. Spotted here.

Beauty Products

Fill a wristlet (we spotted the one shown from Thirty One Gifts) with some favorite beauty products, like nail polish, a stick of sunblock, waterproof mascara (this one is from Pürminerals), and her all-in-one makeup solution in a compact form (also from PürMinerals.com). The lip balm is ultra-nourishing and essential because, hot pink. From Maybelline.

Book to Read

And, last but not least, throw in a book she can read on the beach. I recommend Yes Please, but that’s because Amy Poehler is my spirit animal. Yours might be Tina Fey, in which case this would be an awesome choice. Or Mindy Kaling’s book which was so funny I laughed out loud (and I was sort of bummed when I finished reading it). Another favorite? This book by Ellen Degeneres. Pick any book she’d like (but we recommend something funny and entertaining). I mean, a dramatic book is just a little too serious for a relaxing bach weekend, ya know?

♥ | ♥ | ♥

She’ll L O V E this gift. Promise. I know I would!
