Sincere apologies for the delayed wedding post. Aaaaand the planning continues. Earlier this week, I was fortunate to meet with the lovely ladies at Kendra Scott, who helped design jewelry for my bridesmaids. I took advantage of the Color Bar, which is an interactive tool where you choose the following:
⇒ Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Rings
⇒ Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Gunmetal
⇒ Tons of colors ranging from rose quartz to ivory pearl to teal magnesite
I really enjoyed feeling part of the process as well as being given an opportunity to provide my input in terms of what I liked and what I thought each of my bridesmaids would like stylistically. With bridal gifts in mind, my ultimate goal was to give items I know the girls will use/wear again. The color bar made it easy to stay within budget, choose the exact style I was envisioning and match the stone color to the dress color + style. Added bonus: there were so many great options for my dress colors – burgundy and blush!
It is easy to go overboard, but remember the girls standing by your side will like anything you pick. Three pieces of criteria I kept in mind were 1) Meaningful and 2) Practicality 3) Budget friendly. Establishing criteria before looking makes the search more fun and much more bearable.
On another note, time is moving incredibly quickly and I’m beginning to feel anxious. There is still a lot to do, but I am confident everything will fall into place the way it’s supposed to. My first bridal shower is next weekend (yay!) and I couldn’t be more excited to gather with all those closest to me and kick off the wedding festivities. Cheers to what’s ahead!
