As many of you know, Chris and I are in the beginning stages of planning our wedding, which has included me dress shopping! We have not picked out any of the "big things" yet, like venues, but we have little pieces that we have been picking up here and there to get off to a good start!
Throughout this post, I am going to share with you some of our favorite pieces we have picked up thus far. If anyone out there has any suggestions for places to shop for wedding decorations or to register, then leave those ideas in the comments below. I appreciate everyone's involvement and well wishes!
#1: Bridal Shirt
A must have for any new bride is a bridal shirt. Whether it be a tee or tank, a tee with a saying like "Bride" or "Fiance" or "From Ms. to Mrs." every bride should have one. It is a cute little nod to your exciting event coming up, as well as this exciting time in your life. Plus, you can style these tanks and tees so many ways, especially with leather jackets going into the fall!
#2: Wedding Planning Notebook
I have an obsession with anything related to stationary from cute pens to sticky notes to notebooks. However, whether you have a stationary obsession like me or not, it is crucial to have a notebook to write down all of your important dates, inspirational ideas, and to do lists. This notebook will be your wedding bible as you go throughout the process, even if you are in just the beginning stages like me. Style points for one that is white, says "Bride," or is an actual wedding planner!
#3: Advice Cards
Like I stated in the beginning, Chris and I have only started to plan, so we have not picked out a venue yet. So, we are just picking out little pieces here and there, such as these white and gold advice cards. I love these, since it is a great way to connect with your guests and to have a little memento for you and your significant other to take home and read through the next day.
#4: Card Holder
This adorable card holder is something that, again, connects you with your guests. It is a convenient way for guests to drop their car/gift off and then enjoy the party. Also, the saying on the holder is adorable and truly emulates the love that is present during a wedding! And, can you believe I found it at Jewel?!
