Ok... Don't judge me. We all have been there. Especially during the pandemic, we were for lack of better words ADDICTED to Amazon. If you were one of the chosen few to remain sober, during those times, than you are one of the lucky ones.
When I got married Amazon was my best friend. It got so bad that the carrier and I were on first name basis. I would ask him about his day and vice versa. I would leave snacks on my porch and he would happily oblige. I can admit I had a true shopping problem during the pandemic, but that's for another blog post...lol
In this blog post you will find the items that made my wedding day run so much smoother.
The Knot Ultimate Wedding Planner & Organizer
This planner is GOLD! The Knot Ultimate Planner has detailed timelines, money saving tips, how to choose your wedding vendors and so much more. My favorite part about this binder is the comparing vendor section. It has several questions that you should be asking each one of your vendors. Just to make sure you are choosing the correct one.
Another thing I enjoyed was the wedding registry guide. I had absolutely no clue what to include on our wedding website, but the binder guided me along in showing me what to include.
This one can double as a bridesmaids gift for your gal pals and a way for you to be comfortable while you get ready, for your day. The robes I selected came in a set of 8. which was great, because it allowed me to buy bulk, but also save money at the same time. We all know that when planning a wedding things can add up pretty fast.
A lot of the bridal jewelry you see in some of the most expensive bridal shops you can find on Amazon. Take my word for it! I used to work at a bridal shop and we would mark up earrings at almost 50-90%. One day I decided to google the same earrings I seen at David's Bridal. Low and behold they were online for more than 20% less than the advertised price. You can imagine how shook I was, but also happy. Amazon has beautiful veils, garters, jewelry and other items that will make you look beautiful for your special day...at an affordable price.
Bridal emergency kit
One of my previous weddings, is when I had a bride that no matter what she did everything went wrong. She fell and bumped her head. She ripped her gown. Her mother-in- law had a large cut on her finger, so blood got on her dress(and it was noticeable) You name it, it happened. The flower girl even had an allergic reaction to peanut butter pastries .
Majority of the accidents that happend on her wedding day could have been resolved if only she would have had an Emergency kit .
A proper emergency kit should have
Printed copy of the wedding day timeline
Small snacks (like granola bars or crackers)
Nail polish & remover
Clear nail polish
Tampons or pads
Toothbrush & toothpaste
Portable phone charger
and other various items. You can even create your own.
We all have to go, but on your wedding day you don't want to struggle. The bridal buddy was designed for you to go to the bathroom, but keep your dress clean. You don't need 3-4 people helping you, when you can help yourself. It's super easy to use, all you have to do is slip in and roll up your dress. The Buddy even comes in Plus size! If you are worried that it still might not fit, they even make it for little people as well. Can I get a OH YEA!!
