Hi guys, happy Monday! I’ve had so much fun looking through all of our wedding photos & reliving that day. I wanted to share all about my bridesmaids… how I asked them to be in the wedding, their dresses, hair, & gifts.

When I got engaged in August of last year, I asked my sister to be my maid of honor & each of my best friends to be my bridesmaids with these super cute box sets from Etsy. I loved the confetti, fortune cookies, & little white frames (I put a photo of us together in each one)!

On our wedding day, I gave them ‘thank you’ gifts for being such a huge part of my special day. I got them each a personalized hanger, champagne flute, thank you card, & gift bag from Etsy. I also gave them light pink & white striped robes from Le Rose to wear while getting ready. The specific ones I got aren’t available anymore but Le Rose has so many cute choices!


Last but not least, one of my favorite gifts for the girls were these personalized compact mirrors, from Little Things Favors.

It took me awhile to find a robe I loved until I found  this one  from Nordstrom.

My mom found the cutest little champagne bottles with gold confetti for us to pop & Sarah & Faith’s wonderful moms decorated the bridal suite that morning. They also had mimosas & lunch brought in for all of us. Each of the girls took turns sharing memories & we had so much fun relaxing, sipping mimosas, doing our makeup, & getting ready. I was so overwhelmed, anxious, & stressed leading up to our wedding weekend but that morning I was finally able to relax, enjoy the process of seeing my vision come to life, & have fun getting ready with my girls.

My hairdresser, Karen Hoover, came from Charlotte to do everyone’s hair & she did the most incredible job. I loved the idea of all of the girls having different styles (pony, bun, down, half up) but all having braids & flowers (provided by my florist, LB Floral). They all turned out so amazing & B-E-A-U-T-F-U-L.

I found the girl’s dresses at Brideside, a dress shop in Charlotte where a stylist provides personalized assistance with picking out dresses. I was so excited to pick out my bridesmaids dresses & went there 3-4 times, once with almost every girl, to try on every dress they had! I knew I wanted to have all different dresses in the same color scheme (light pink/blush/buff) & to have a mix of sequins, chiffon, & tulle. Below is what each girl ended up in.

Julie (sis/maid of honor): Jenny Yoo Jules Sleeveless Dress in Rose Gold

This was truly the BEST day of my life & I love sharing these photos with you all. Please comment below if you have any questions about my bridesmaids. Also, in case you missed it, I shared a bunch of wedding photos HERE.
