This year I was beyond ecstatic and completely humbled when asked (well, I wasn’t really given a choice, but I would’ve said yes regardless ; ) by one of my best friends (Erica) to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding.

The week before our planned dress-shopping excursion, the other bridesmaids and I, my other best friend (Dominique) and a close mutual friend of the bride (Hannah), put our heads together and came up with this super cute and 100% useful bride-to-be gift idea!

Bride-To-Be Gift Idea

It’s a KICKOFF TO WEDDING PLANNING tote bag!  Each of us purchased various items and placed them in this adorable tote bag.  Some of the items included:

  • Post-it notes
  • Highlighters
  • Pens
  • iTunes giftcard (for wedding planning apps)
  • Paper Clips
  • To-go scissors (they came with a cute cover)
  • Washi tape
  • Sticky tabs (those cute tabs that you can put wherever)
  • A notepad
  • Monogrammed stationary (cards and envelopes)
  • Wedding magazines
  • Bottle of champagne
  • Shadow box picture frame of the 4 of us girls (for keepsakes from all the wedding planning activities)
  • Chapstick (because we can’t have a bride with chapped lips!)
  • Gum/Mints (Or bad breath either for that matter!)

Other items to include:

  • Cute binder (possibly even pre-decorated!)
  • Dividers
  • Pack of clear sheet covers

After we put all of the items in this cute tote bag (that we had also purchased as part of the gift) I stuffed it with tissue paper and created those cute tags.

So guess what?!  Although my tags were custom-made by yours-truly, I have redesigned them just to share with you!  Check them out!
