Bride Tribe Must-HavesWords by Lauren Ertl
Your bride tribe has been with you not only through life but now through your destination wedding planning process–which we know can have its ups and downs. Needless to say, your tribe deserves some pampering too! Here are some items we think you should consider giving as a “thank you” to them for being by your side through it all.
Carve Designs, known for their swim and beachwear, teamed up with LOVE Reusable Bags to build pouches and totes that are not only beach-friendly but that are also made with 100% recycled plastic. The Earth and your bride tribe will love you for these!
We suggest you use Carve Designs’ adorable Sophia Shoulder Tote as the “gift bag” for the rest of the goodies. Beyond your W-Day, your bride tribe will be able to use this eco-friendly tote for days at the beach/pool, groceries, etc.
The Parkside Reversible Pouch is the first item you’ll want to throw in the Sophia Shoulder Tote because it’s much more than just a pouch. No bride likes a messy dressing room on their wedding day–besides you have much more important things to think about than keeping things tidy. The Parkside Pouch is the solution to keeping everyone’s makeup, hairbrushes, etc contained. After your special day, your bride tribe can use these reversible, leak-proof, wet/dry bags for packing wet swimsuits after a day on the water.
Next up is an item quickly gaining popularity in the world of women’s fashion, and it’s not hard to see why. Smash+Tess rompers are made with sustainable rayon from a bamboo and cotton blend that’s been proven to stand the test of time and retain its shape and overwhelming softness when treated well. Smash+Tess has even created rompers specifically for you and your bride tribe to get ready for your special day in (we see adorable getting ready pics in your future!) The Bridal Packages offered have you choose your bridal romper in white and then select the color and style you’d like for your bridesmaids. Purchase 3 or more bridesmaids’ rompers and get 15% off your bridal package at checkout, or get 6 or more for 20% off.
Finish out your bride tribe gift bags with beauty essentials, things like bobby pins, mini deodorant, safety pins, etc. Or, just slip a Minimergency Kit for Bridesmaids by Pinch Provisions in there. These little kits are chock-full of 21 little essentials to save your bridesmaids from fashion faux pas on the wedding day.
The best part about the items we’ve included above is that they can be utilized by your tribe long after you say “I do.”
