Sorry if I'm going a little crazy with the bridal posts, but 'tis the season, and I'm so excited, I'm WEDDING my pants. :) Whether you're attending one, being in one, helping plan one, or just crashing one this summer, I gotcher back when it comes the soon-to-be Mrs. ;)
Weddings are the best. You get to a front row seat to watch your friend enjoy one of the happiest days of her life—meanwhile, YOU get to celebrate all day (CAKE!), drink fancy drinks (ALCOHOL!), have flowers stuck onto you, and hang out with the rest of wedding party all day.
And by the time the heels get thrown on the table as a centerpiece, you've become best friends with all the groomsmen's dates, botched your speech (and sought reassurance from everyone at the bar), did the Cotton-Eyed Joe jig with the bride's dad, and then you go home with bubbles in your purse and all the peanut remnants from the snack bar in your hand (and about 25% in your bra—damn strapless dresses).
For me, wedding season starts this weekend. My next 5 Saturdays look like: Wedding, Wedding, Wedding, Shower, Wedding, and then a 2-week break till we start again. I eat this stuff up.
The only downside to a summer this heavy with nuptials is the fact that they do a slicknumber on your wallet. My bank account seems to have taken a Mike-Tyson-caliber hit lately because of all the dresses, gifts, and trips. So in honor of all the upcoming weddings, I thought I'd share with you a few ideas to help save you a few. Below you'll find some pretty little bridal gifts I've found that are under fifty bucks. :)
Psssst: I didn't link them in the caption in this post, but if you want to check out
any of the products, just click on the pictures. (That's right; my site's gettin' fancy.) :)
Hope this helped you find something worthy of that bride-to-be. After this weekend, I'll have a shiny, new, non-selfie post on bridal makeup! Keep your eyes peeled!
