Do you have a bride-to-be that’s not into the crazy, night out on the town Bachelorette party? Still looking for a way to spoil her before her big day and make her feel loved? How about throwing a pool party bash with the girls or even a “Sunday Funday” get together with both sides of the wedding party and other close friends. My sister wasn’t super keen on a wild evening, so we decided to have a pool party gathering with all the bridesmaids, groomsmen, their significant others, and friends. I’m sharing some of the items I purchased for her because (in my opinion) it’s extremely important that the bride feels special; not just on her special day, but in the months leading up to her “I Do” moment as well.
Many of these items are not only perfect for a hot, summer day in the sun, but as pre-wedding gifts as well. So whether you’re prepping for a typical bachelorette party, wedding shower, or laid back shindig — here are some gifts don’t want to pass up.
Bridal Hair Ties.
First off, in the midst of wedding preparation, Etsy has become my new best friend. To the point where I downloaded the app on my phone and have both my debit and credit card linked to it (handy, but deadly). There’s so many products to choose from with customizable items to ensure your bride will absolutely love them. I ordered these hair ties from Two Lil Pumpkins’ shop on Etsy that read, “To have and to Hold Your Hair Back.” Seriously, how cute is that?! SHOP HERE: (Only $5) Bridal Hair Ties from Two Lil PumpkinsA “Future Mrs.” and/or Mrs. Customized Item(s).
This customizable, embroidered floppy hat was purchased from Magnolia Stitch Design on Etsy (I’m telling you, it’s as easy as Etsy). It’s sturdy, the brim flexes with how the bride wants the brim to lya, and it’s absolutely adorable. I would highly recommend this item as a fun pool party present for the bride or a honeymoon gift, it’s chic and gives her a chance to show off her new name. P.S. I’m more of a baseball cap girl myself and there’s plenty of “Mrs.” washed out caps and yet again, customizable Mrs. ones to choose from on Etsy! (Here’s my favorite: Future Mrs. Cap from Little Brownn Suitcase)A “Future Mrs.” Sash.
There’s countless cheap, chintzy sashes that read “Bachelorette” or “Last Fling Before the Ring,” it’s been done. Try ordering a custom sash that has a classier saying across it or perhaps her name! Check some out here: Lauren Lash Designs LLCMatching Bridal Party Tank Tops.
Nothing screams “BRIDAL PARTY” like matching outfits. Lately, the whole LBD for the bridesmaids and a classic white dress for the bride has been all the rage when women take to the town for a fun night out. SHOP HERE: Party Gift Store on EtsyBridal Floaties.
It’s no surprise that Target is a dangerous vortex…
You go in there on a mission, with a few items in mind (consciously repeating them to yourself) and walk out with six items you didn’t need and one of the things that you actually intended on buying. You’re lying to yourself if you just said that has never happened to you. Thankfully, I came across this fabulous diamond ring floatie and small drink floaties while searching online and ordered them for in-store pick-up. So naturally and thankfully I avoided the countless distractions that would have consumed my attention had I walked through the actual store to pick them up. Needless to say, the large tube is perfect for that bride-to-be in your life and it’s only $19.99, SHOP IT HERE: Big Mouth Giant Bling Ring Pool Float.
Surprisingly, the Big Mouth Bling Ring Beverage Boats were much sturdier than initially expected. Also, they’re too cute and suitable for the occassion not to purchase.
