Summertime is upon us, ladies. It’s a time of sunshine, pool days, popsicles, and of course, wedding planning. Anywhere your day takes you, you’re going to need a pair of sunglasses to protect your lovely eyes. This pair of Classic Malibu sunglasses is Ray-Ban-inspired, and the perfect accessory for a bride on the go. They provide 100% UVA and UVB protection and feature your new title, “Bride” in a modern font with a nice little heart for extra pizazz. Show them off at the beach during your bachelorette party or honeymoon, when you’re out cake tasting, or any other situation where the sun is shining bright.
Psst: Not a lot of sun where you are? Your glasses are also the perfect bride-to-be selfie accessory…just sayin.
Need a way to keep track of the date AND get excited for the big day? Enter your new 100-Day Wedding Calendar from Creative Countdown. It’s filled with entries that are fun, creative, and helpful like wedding tips, advice, and humor to take the edge off of planning-related stress. Each entry also has a line at the bottom for you to fill in the date. Tear off a new page every day to count down to and get inspired for your special day.
Psst: Save your favorite pages from your countdown calendar as a keepsake, or even put them in a wedding time capsule.
Aromatherapy has been used to improve psychological and physical well-being for thousands of years. Lavender has been shown to improve sleep and calm anxiety. Peppermint has been shown to reduce headache and joint pain, improve focus, and like lavender, reduce stress. Oh, did we mention that you now have an essential oil roller that’s infused with both of them? Roll some on after a long day of work or wedding planning. You can dab some on your tired feet to reinvigorate them, or even put a small dab under your nose to inhale its revitalizing aroma.
Did You Know? We have a Pamper Me gift box that is filled with more goodies to make you feel like a queen at a spa. Fluffy socks, candles, and even more invigorating aromas await you…
Sealing those leftover bottles of wedding wine just got a little easier and a lot more efficient. These “Bride” and “Groom” reusable silicone caps from Capabunga will preserve your wedding wine so you can portion it out over time. Not only are they an adorable black and white motif, with your new titles displayed, but they are designed to be liquid-tight, so you can rest the bottles on their sides, either on your counter or in the refrigerator.
Heads Up: Please make sure you are using your Capabunga caps on non-effervescent wines only. For sparkling wines, head over to Capabunga.com and order CapaBubbles wine caps.
Ladies, if you’re like us, you know that putting on your eyeliner can sometimes be a chore. Be a Bombshell Cosmetics offers makeup for every woman that is not only versatile but also easy to use. This liquid eyeliner, in color “Onyx”, is the answer to troublesome pencils and gel cakes. The felt tip marker style of the eyeliner makes doing your eyes as easy as doodling in your favorite adult coloring book. Run a thin line on your top lid when you’re out planning during the day or make a thicker line on the top and bottom lids for a well-deserved date night look. You can even use it for a bolder bachelorette look.
Pro Tip: Store your eyeliner vertically, with the tip facing down to get the most ink out of your pen.
If you have been with us for a little while, then you know how amazing Kate Aspen's gifts and favors are. Well, you are in for another treat with this set of fifty heart-shaped gold-foil-lined wish cards. Wish cards are a way for your wedding guests to bestow upon you their wisdom, advice, or even jokes on your special day. Just grab a medium or large-sized decorative jar, some pens or sharpies, and your wish cards, and place them on the welcome table at your reception. After the wedding, you and your spouse can look through them as you revel in the memory of the best day of your life. Alternatively, you can pull one card from the jar each day for a special daily treat.
JSYK: You can always head over to KateAspen.com to order more sets of wish cards if you have more than fifty guests and your jar holds more than fifty cards.
