Bridesmaid Orientation

I love to plan & organize, so "bridesmaid orientation" truly was a fitting title for this event! 
We had such a lovely afternoon together at Pinkitzel...enjoy the pics! :) 

Each bridesmaid had a personalized box waiting for her (check here for more info on the boxes).

The girls got to take home their bridesmaid dresses! (Francesca's Collections)

My mom did an AMAZING job with the decor...makes me even more excited for my wedding day!

I really do have the sweetest - and prettiest - friends/bridesmaids!

I love creating things that bring a smile to someone's face! :)

The boxes were filled with a few surprises!

My future sister-in-law lives out of town, but thanks to technology she could still be with us! :)

My favorite part of the boxes was the little "info packet" I made to put inside...

I was blown away by the staff at Pinkitzel...they went above and beyond to make this day so special!

I put a framed picture of me and each of the girls in the boxes!

My amazing MOH & best friend, Katie!


My mom and future mother-in-law joined us as well! What a beautiful group of girls! :)

Last, but not least, my amazing fianc√©! He came to take pictures and say "hi" to all the girls... 
He really is the BEST!!! :)

Thanks for continuing on this wedding journey with us! 
Feel free to invite other friends to join in on the fun! :)
Thanks for reading & supporting!

  7. Love your site (found you through Fash Boulveard)!! Those are gorgeous dresses...I saw that on Francesca's site just the other day. Ha! Cute idea for bridesmaid dresses instead of an ugly satin thing noone will ever wear again.

    1. Awesome! I was so shocked to see my feature on Fash Boulevard and have been so grateful for all the new people that have found their way over here! :) I'm in love with those bridesmaids dresses and had the same logic you're thinking of -- why spend money on a dress you can never wear again??? Thanks so much for following along! :)
