Getting Ready & Bridesmaid Gifts

Today's Wedding Wednesday post is all about my ladies.  I have the best group of friends in the world, and I am so lucky to have had them by my side throughout my wedding weekend.  They planned an amazing bachelorette party for me, and in turn, I made them get up at 5:30 am for hair and makeup the day of my wedding.  Meanwhile, I hear the guys slept in until 9:30 to leave by 10:30 - haha!

Grace, Mia, and Lauren of Blushing Brides were at our hotel at 6:00 am to start on hair and makeup.  Grace runs a fantastic company and I highly recommend her team to any brides in the Boston area!  

To soften the blow, I obviously had a mimosa bar for my ladies and we had a lot of fun spending time together throughout the morning.

I had given the ladies their presents the night before so that we could all wear them the morning before the wedding.  I had so much fun shopping for my bridesmaids, flower girl, and mom.  I already shared what I gave them when I asked them to be in my bridal party, and I knew that I wanted to keep supporting small businesses through Etsy when I bought their gifts.  I tried to find items that were helpful for the wedding day as well as things they might use again.  Here's what they received at the rehearsal dinner:

Personalized hangers from Passion and Love 
Floral Getting Ready Robes from Comfy Clothing
Tahitian Teal Earrings and Necklaces from Lacy Laura Gray
Plus an American Girl Dress from My Dressed Up Doll with custom matching teal sash

 And then, it was time to put on my dress!

Last, but not least, I did a "first look" with my dad, and we were on our way to the ceremony!

Ruchi at Comfy Clothing was kind enough to send me an extra robe to give away to one of my readers.  While all of the robes my girls received were customized by size and height, this navy robe with teal flowers (style and color 307) is a "standard size" which will fit most women's sizes and will fall to about the knees on girls who are 5' 6."

I was not compensated in any way for this post and purchased all of the items from each of these Etsy shops on my own.  I was simply given an extra robe from Comfy Clothing to help spread the comfyness. :)

We had similar looking robes but from different sellers. I loved getting those for the girls and that I got a different one. It was so much fun! And getting ready is just awesome. These pictures are amazing, as usual!
