Tip for Tuesday

 Today I'm sharing a few ideas for brides.  I don't know if this is a benefit to any of you, but I thought they were cute ideas, so I'm sharing them!  :)

This first one is something I received from a bride I helped to give a shower for.  She brought along these cute gifts for the ladies that gave the shower.
 The tag says: Thank you for being a part of this beautiful day.

 And in the bag, was a Beautiful Day lotion, from Bath and Bodyworks.  Isn't that cute?  I thought it was a very thoughtful thing to do.

This next thing is something Heather did for her bridesmaids.

She ordered these cute tote bags, put in a necklace she had made to go with the dresses they were wearing, some soft comfy socks, a pretty candle, and then added this cute poem and the things mentioned in it.

This survival kit was 
made just to say

I'm thrilled you're beside me 
on my special day.

There's chocolate to give you
that sugar high,

and a package of tissues
in case you should cry.

Lip gloss to help you
take care of your smile,

If a nail should break,
I've included a file.

There is Shout if you
happen to spill on your dress,

and Lifesavers to keep
your breath minty fresh.

There's Aleve and Tums
if you start to feel ill,

 and band-aids to help
you tackle high heels.

I've put everything into
this handy pack,

just so you know that
this bride has your back!

This kit was created so
that you can see,

just how much you mean
to this bride -to-be!

Here's the tote bag all filled up.  The bridesmaids liked them!

Ohhhhhhhhhh what a wonderful idea!!! I bought each of my bridesmaids pink alabaster ring boxes and put in a quarter and a note (back than we had pay phones, remember?). Thank you Mari. Blessings

Really cute ideas! I love it! Both of my daughters are married, so we have gone through that, but these fun gifts would be great for other occasions as well. Thanks for sharing.

This is precious and I must say, very refreshing. Each of my daughters has served as a bridesmaid in at least one wedding where the bride was a true Bridezilla. Making unreasonable demands, flying off the handle at the slightest thing, and in general taking temporary leave of her senses. Not only did it not honor the Lord, but it made the entire process so difficult and it was unnecessary because if everyone could just stop and take a deep breath and smile, and remember to be kind and considerate, most issues will resolve themselves. Anyway, these are not only great ideas but they speak of brides who realize that just about everyone is doing something for them, for free, to make the wedding a success, and they should be sensitive to the needs of others. Heather's idea is wonderful and I'm going to make a note of it should I ever (please God) need it! xoxo

Both are really cute ideas, but the one that Heather made for her attendants brought tears to my eyes as I read the note she included for them. What a sweetheart of a daughter you have, Mari! But then I know she has a sweetheart of a mom. :)
