Wedding gown shopping can be a grueling process. Something so dainty and beautiful can easily go downhill trying to schedule appointments, gather five bridesmaids, a mother and a future mother-in-law – and that’s before the shopping even begins. I had toyed with the idea of Wedding Dress Shopping Survival Kits, but luckily for me (and my shopping induced panic attacks) we only visited one boutique on Saturday.
There are two things you should know about my sister.
1) She is a memento collector through and through.
2) She is the most indecisive person I have ever met.
Fears emerged that she might get too many opinions because of the size of our group (6 bridesmaids, a mother and a mother-in-law). With this in mind, I knew I needed to create something to commemorate the special day.
Thus emerged the Wedding Gown Goodie Bags
I designed a “score card” for each guest. Here, they wrote down their favorite gown and notes about their likes, dislikes and questions.
At the post-boutique cocktail brunch we used the cards to discuss our thoughts.
The best part? Jenn now has personalized cards for her scrapbook!
Wedding dress shopping is a hard day for the bride and guests alike. Each gift bag also included a poem created for each person: the bride, the mother of the bride, the future mother-in-law and the bridesmaids. Placed on a piece of decorated cardstock, the poems act as a token for each guest as well.
