Items for W-Day ComfortWords by Lauren Marshall
Imagine waking up on the day of your destination wedding, looking out over the sea in Greece or at the mountainous vistas in the Rocky Mountains. Take a deep breath, maybe say a prayer and let that feeling sink in. You are getting married today.
Nerves, excitement and all – you’ll need some encouragement and comfort leading up to and on the big day. We’ve recently reviewed a few products that might just be the perfect mixture of good vibes for the wedding and your special day.
Gather All the Inspiration With Fun Goodies from Molly Hatch
Designer of everything from stationery to adorable mugs and more, Molly Hatch’s goal is to “make the familiar new again.” Familiar sayings your mom may have said to you as a child are inscribed on items like coffee cups and luggage tags. These little tributes are sweet reminders of how beautiful this life is and will be exactly what you need to begin your travels to your destination wedding location. Your bridesmaids might also love a cute little message on their luggage tag, travel mug or even laptop case to say “thanks” and something to carry with them to always remember the event.
Sport an Easy, Flawless Floral Dress from Azazie
Of course, reserve your favorite pair of sweat pants and collegiate hoodie for the plane ride to your destination. However, after you get settled in your room, consider changing into this fun, flowy floral red dress! The Secret Garden Dress from Azazie features a v-neckline, adjustable straps, a fitted waistline and a lovely skirt with a flirty slit on the side. The lightweight material makes it the perfect dress for ultimate comfort without compromising style. Maybe even purchase these for your bridesmaids to wear while getting ready instead of the traditional silk robe. Either way, this is an item to be loved and utilized long after your destination wedding.
Kick Chaffing to the Curb With Cute Thigh Bands by Bandelettes
One of the co-founders of Bandelettes suffered with a persistent thigh chafing issue for many years. After discovering she was not alone and that so many others were having to struggle with the discomfort and embarrassment of rubbing thigh skin, it only served to increase their motivation to find a solution. Thus, Bandelettes were born and brides don’t have to sacrifice style for anti-chafing wear on their wedding days. “These thigh bands feature two rows of stay up silicone that hold them in place, even through extended wear, without any need to worry about slipping,” the company says.
These are just a few of the many products to consider taking along for high W-Day spirits and ultimate comfort throughout your trip to say, “I do.” Now, girlfriend, spend a moment reminding yourself that no matter the anxieties of your wedding away, you can take solace in the fact that you will soon be comforted in the arms of your forever-partner.
