30 Before April 30 Project 15 Completed!

Friday, March 25, 2011

Through the years, I have had my share of weddings and bridesmaid dresses to wear. I have traveled to Illinois during Thanksgiving weekend. I have lounged on the beach in Maui before and after a wedding ceremony. And I have always made the commitment that if I can't make it to the wedding, you can count on me for the bachelorette party!

Now that the tables are turned and I get to spoil some ladies, I can't help but think of all the amazing places I've been, the unique dresses I've worn and the heartfelt stories that I can't forget! With 14 weddings as a bridesmaid on my resume, I like to think that I'm pretty ready to go with my own festivities! This may be a spoiler alert for our bridesmaids, but here's what we put together:

- Personalized canvas bags from The Knot
- Not-so-pearl necklaces from Forever 21
- Leather travel jewelry boxes from Banana Republic
- Tissue, nail files, snacks and water

And for the wee program attendants, I made these simple totes and will add the headbands that I made, some snacks, not-so-pearl bracelets, and little gifts.
