Choosing your bridal essentials

Your wedding is one of the biggest milestones you’ll celebrate in life. Some have spent their whole lives planning for this moment. No matter where you are in the wedding planning process, don’t forget about the details. Let your personality shine and customize the look, colors, and style to what you and your fiance stand for together. Gather all the intimate essentials that hold dear, sentimental value to you.

Get your grandmother’s brooch out and add it to your bridal bouquet, wear your father’s favorite color, have your fiance’s name stitched into your wedding dress. These are the key heirlooms you don’t want to forget. They add so much more meaning to your wedding day. 

Be sure to replace your plastic hanger with a custom-made hanger – something that will enhance and show off your bridal gown. It can have simple ribbons for elegance or have “Bride-to-Be” written on it. 

Have an emergency kit with the essentials: hair spray, hairpins, medicine, sewing kit, super glue, scissors, deodorant, mints, sunscreen, lipstick. You never know when you’ll need it! Keep it handing with your maid of honor. 

Get detailed! From the invitations to the table numbers, go full out. Put in the thought where it counts. Divide the tasks between you and your fiance and decide together. Use each other’s strengths and give each other options. Make sure your vendors are a good fit for you, your vision, and style. You only want the best team serving you. 

Wedding Hashtags

Lastly, get on the wedding hashtag game. It’s all about creating the buzz and keeping your wedding memories organized. Start using it anytime you post or share anything wedding related, whether it’s saying yes to the dress, a picture of the two of you on the beach, or your bridal shower, hashtag it!

Here are a few links to help you get your creative juices flowing:

Free Wedding Hashtag Generator – Simple and to the point. You only need to type in your names.

Wedding-Wire Hashtag Generator – By far the most detailed with at least a dozen questions to fill out.

Wedding Mix Generator– Put in your names and date, and select a fun, classic or offbeat option.
