Ah, Summer. The season for travel, hanging with your girls and outdoor weddings! Summer is one of my favorite seasons because of all the possibilities it may bring! But…It’s also the season for hot days, spf and sweat.
And no one is typically a fan of those things, aren’t they?
And through all the heat and wedding bliss, the people who will be by your side the most through all the craziness will be your squad, AKA, your bridal party! I may not be able to block those seriously hot sun rays, but I do have a list of things to help save the day! No matter if your wedding or reception is outdoors, or if you just happen to be saying “I do” in a really hot state, make sure you and your girls are taken care of this summer by following my summer bridal party gift guide!
Would it even be a bridal party gift guide if I didn’t include Advil? One bottle of this stuff on your wedding day and you’ll be ready for whatever the day will bring (or the day after 😉). From periods, to headaches to hangovers, this is my #1 on any list of wedding day prep! My tip: get an extra bottle for your partner and their wedding party, trust me, you’ll thank me later!
2. Liquid IV
From the scorching sun, to all the adult drinks at the wedding, make sure your squad is hydrated with Liquid IV! No matter if you’re feeling dehydrated from the sun, tired from all the wedding activities or if you had one (or two… or three) too many drinks, this really is the perfect pick-me-up. Pair it with the advil and your besties will be feeling better in no time!
3. Shout Wipes
Most bridal party gifts include a mini travel sewing kit, and as much as I love them, spills and messes can happen and those sewing kits don’t prepare you for that. From food, to drinks, to makeup, shout wipes are the perfect little addition to bridal party gifts to prevent any funny stains on your wedding day! Think of it like a little, on demand dry cleaner in your hands!
4. Makeup Wipes
Now, I know you may be thinking “Aren’t makeup wipes a given for your bridal party?” and although you’re correct, makeup remover wipes are often one of the most forgotten items in the packing process! Do your squad a favor by getting these small, travel size packs. They fit in nearly any size purse or clutch and they’re definitely useful the morning after some hard wedding partying.
These are for your emotional besties that won’t have the opportunity to use their makeup wipes, because they already have happy tears rolling down their face! Tissues are always go-to staple for any bridal party gift bag! Plus, they’re nice to have on hand, just in case someone else may need some.
It’s a wedding, love is in the air, so make sure you have your squads back by making sure they have fresh breath! From tic tacs, to breath spray, to Listerine strips, these are small and easy ways to make sure your wedding party is ready for any close encounters they may have. Plus, these products keep them from using gum, so if you don’t want to see any photos of your wedding guests smackin’ away, those are great substitutes.
I may not be able to protect you all from the suns heat, but this little guy will definitely help you from breaking out in a sweat! Don’t worry about loud, big and obnoxious fans to keep everyone cool! This fan is only slightly larger than your phone and creates very little noise! Perfect for that one friend that gets a little cranky in the heat (It’s okay, we all have one).
I have even more where that came from! When you book with me, you get all the inside scoop and goodies, including guides like this one!
Stay cool, stay hydrated, but most importantly, stay truly, madly and deeply in love.
Until next time,
