Brides always ask me where they should get their bridal party gifts. Everything Decorated has the best selection and the owner, Brittany, is amazing! She is so prompt, easy to work with, and keeps your budget in mind when creating the most meaningful, personalized gifts. I recently purchased this IceShaker Tumbler from Everything Decorated and absolutely love it. It’s so much more light weight than my Yeti so it’s easy to hold in one hand. It fits perfectly in my car cup holder too which is a huge bonus for me! It comes in a wide variety of colors but I chose the mint! These tumblers can be customized to match the color palette of any wedding - all of the fonts to choose from are also a fun way to customize! The straw is super heavy duty and when I did the ice test, ice stayed in my cup while leaving it in my car overnight …. It’s summertime in Charleston so I was extra impressed!

How to Make the Most of Your Wedding Day
Your wedding day is going to be the best day of your life, but it’s also going to go by in the blink of an eye! Once you say “I do”, your whole day is going to fly. Of course you’ll have the gorgeous pictures and possibly video to look back on to remember your day, but it’s also important to take a step back and embrace all of the moments that you don’t want to forget. Follow these tips so you can make the most out of your wedding day!
Don’t be afraid to get what you want
This is ultimately your day, so don’t be scared to voice your opinion on what you and your fiancé want for your wedding. Now, definitely don’t take that as a pass to be a bridezilla because you’re getting married, but don’t let anyone else alter your dream. Your parents might be helping you cover some of the finances, but that doesn’t mean they get to control your entire wedding day. To give yourself some extra financial freedom to get what you’ve always hoped for, consider taking out a low-interest personal wedding loan to give your budget some wiggle room. That way, you don’t have to compromise any of the details that are most important to you and your S.O.
While you may want to be on your phone scrolling through social media while you’re getting ready to see what people are posting, but resist the urge. Your wedding day is going to be so heavily photographed that you don’t need your phone for any reason. Hand your phone off to your maid of honor or to your mom and disconnect until the next day. You want to fully be present for every amazing second, so turn the phone off. For other social media dos and don’t on your wedding day, check out this slideshow!
Get ready with your girls
There is nothing better than getting ready with your bridesmaids and your mom the morning of your wedding. There is so much excitement leading up to the moment you’ll see your man, it’s nice to be surrounded by all of your besties and loved ones. Get on-site bridal hair and makeup for everyone in your crew and get pampered like the queens that you are! Turn on some of your favorite tunes, set up a mimosa bar, and dance the nerves away!
Don’t worry about the little details
As much as you want your day to be perfect, something is bound to go wrong. Remember the real reason why all of this planning happened: to celebrate your love for your partner. At the end of the day, that is all that matters. Really. Don’t freak out because your bridesmaid forgot the shoes that everyone was supposed to wear, or the florist didn’t get the flowers there until after the ceremony. Don’t worry if your drunk uncle grabs the mic and gives a speech, or your cousin cried when she didn’t catch the bouquet. All of those possible awkward wedding moments are nothing compared to the fact that you get to marry the love of your life, so keep it in perspective.
Take it all in
With everything going on, you don’t want to forgot to take a second to soak it all in. Before the end of the night, step back with your new spouse and just watch everything around you. Look over at your bridal party screaming at the top of their lungs along with the wedding band. Embrace the special moment of your parents slow dancing to their own wedding song. Smile at the flower girl napping at her table because it’s way past her bedtime. There are so many memories you’ll want to remember, so don’t forget to hold on to them while you can.
Wedding Details You Shouldn’t Overlook
Planning the perfect wedding can seem impossible. With all of the details and preparing that go into wedding prep, it’s not hard to overlook some key elements. We understand that you can get wedding brain fog and forget some details here and there, but there are definitely some aspects you’ll regret if forgotten. Here’s a list of wedding details that are commonly overlooked, but that you should be sure to include when planning your wedding.
Providing directions both before and during your wedding are important, so you don’t get hounded with a bunch of questions on where everything is. When you send your “Save the Date” card to your guests, include a map or some tips on how to find the venue easily. The last thing you’ll want on the morning of your wedding is to be fielding phone calls from your lost guests. Another way to incorporate directions in your wedding is by displaying decorative signs at the venue. This way your guests will know where the bathroom is or how to find their way to the photobooth. This detail will save you time and also create a better experience for your friends and family.
2. Gifs for your parents and new in-laws
After carefully choosing what you want on your wedding gift registry, it’s essential to start thinking about gifts to give both your parents and in-laws. Both parents most likely helped with the costs and planning of the wedding, and giving them a thoughtful gift is a great way to show your gratitude as a couple. There are plenty of thank-you gift ideas for parents that will really make them happy!
3. Bridal getting ready outfits
As you and your bridal party primp and prep for the big day, a fun detail to include are outfits specifically for getting ready. For example, your bridal party can all wear matching robes and you can wear a white robe as your hair and makeup are getting done. This will make for a great photo-op too!
4. Wedding emergency kit
Creating a wedding emergency kit can truly save you from whatever the day throws at you. Whether it’s a stain, a headache, or your makeup begins to run, this kit serves as a quick fix for any potential problems. Including items like deodorant, band-aids, and makeup wipes can really help.
5. Activities for kids
If you decide to have a kid-friendly wedding, you need to make sure you have an agenda of activities to keep them busy. You won’t want a child disrupting your wedding ceremony because he or she couldn’t sit still. Have your ushers hand out coloring books and crayons for the children, and even provide games during the reception for them to play. Having activities planned for the kids at your wedding is a detail nobody will want you to overlook.
6. Having a good beauty routine in advance
Thinking about your beauty routine close to the wedding will be too little too late. You want to get into a good beauty skin care regimen about six months prior to your wedding. This will allow the products to actually show results and prevent any negative skin reactions that can occur when introducing a new skin care product to your routine. Products like activated vitamin C serums, prescription retinoids and eye creams all take time to work and show a noticeable difference in your skin. Be sure to plan your beauty routine ahead of time so that you can have beautiful skin in time for your wedding.
