Happy Wedding Wednesday you guys,

I hope you had a great week so far. Mine wasn´t too bad but Monday hit me like a steel freight train (to quote James Morrison) and I still don´t know why. But let´s give it a rest and have a look at one of my last Wedding Wednesday posts (the last 4 are already in draft). 

As I planned out the timeline for the day I wanted to make sure that there would be enough time to get ready and enjoy a few single moments of laughing and sipping some bubbly and getting wedding ready with my bridesmaids. I think this has kept me as calm as I was (I almost was a little shocked that I wasn´t more nervous) cause there was no pressure at all. Everybody was happy and nice and everythink worked out just the way we talked about it. We took lots of picutres while getting ready and it honestly was a blast almost like our bachelorette weekend a few months earlier. 

So for makeup (view the full post on my wedding makeup here) we did it on our own and our hair was made by a local hair dresser. After we all got back our photographer came and started taking picutures of the dresses, the jewelry and all the little things we would have forgotten to tell here. She really was such a sweetie. Kept track of the time and understood everything I wanted. This also helped a lot cause you only get ready once on your wedding day and I wanted a bunch of pictures with my girls so badly. I think we now have more than expected, so check.

The bridesmaids dresses are from Asos and I think they where really happy with them. I totally loved the top with sequins all over and the tulle skirt. But most important was that they have most of their dresses in three lenghts. Normal, petite and long. We needed two in a normal size and one in long so this could have ended really disappointing going shopping. So we gave it a shoot and ordered about 6 dresses from their bridesmaids selection and went with this one right away. 

If you are in need of bridesmaid dresses be sure to check their selection as they have so many different colors, lenghts and sizes and also a huge maternity section.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Wedding Wednesday – what to put into the bridesmaids boxes….

Will you be my bridesmaid cards My bridal shower / box Nanu Nana / excelsior amazon / pink sheets amazon / bridesmaids gown Asos / Yankee Candle Wedding Day amazon / No Ops pouches Douglas / engraved champagne glasses amazon / Freixenet rose mini amazon / Lindt pralines amazon


Hi guys,

you all know by now that we are getting MARRIED and it is still so unreal to me. A huge factor and help every bride are the bridesmaids. Whether you have 1 or 20 bridesmaids they are supposed to help you, to give you advice and to stand by your side when it comes to deciding elementary wedding questions.

I have three bridesmaids. My two best friends I have known for several years now and Florian´s sister who has also become such a good and close friend.

I made a package for each of them going along with a “Will you be my bridesmaid?” card I have found at the My Bridal Shower internet shop. 

I got the boxes (only available in stores) in creme in the largest size they had from nanu-nana. A store with decoration items you can also find online. I stuffed the boxes with excelsior. Not the normal one for moving. I got a way softer material so it wouldn´t scratch a thing. To cover everything before the cap of the box was coming on top I got this pink tissue also from amazon – matched the theme pretty well.

But let´s get to the goodies. I got a personalized champagne glass for each of them with has their name engraved. Of course I had to add some bubbly too, cause how bad would be an empty glass? To round up the fabulous taste of the Freixenet rose champagne I also got small boxes with all the classic chocolate pralines from Lindt I enjoy so much. They also came in a gorgeous matching pink shade.

Why not gifting a good smelling box? I figured the easiest way to pull that off would be by adding a Yankee Candle since the fragrances are insane intense and this small candle really is enough for the size of the box. Also it says Wedding Day and I already do have the big jar of it.

The pink bridesmaid gowns had to be a part of the box and maybe they are also the main part but since I got myself a white bride robe I wanted to get my bridesmaids the matching pink ones. We can all wear them while getting ready. 

And last but not least is the cutest thing I have seen in such a long time. I also had this product in my a monthly favorites post many month ago. A tiny beauty bag from NoOps. These are just the cutest and you would be surprised as much as you would be impressed how much different stuff this little case holds (a headband, 4 bobby pins, a nailfile, clear nail polish, three towelettes, a lip balm, blotting papers, tooth sticks, make-up remover wipes, a mini sewing set and two buttons). Unbelievable right!!!!
What did you gift your bridesmaids and would you have any other ideas ?
