On Saturday I had a little 'trying on tea' for my bridesmaids. It was lovely to have them all together and to see how their outfits look. I couldn't let them leave without something delicious and one of my dear bridesmaids made a retro inspired tart.
For each of them I bought drawstring bags to use for their accessories and put a little thank you gift inside.
I really want them to feel like themselves and be comfortable on the wedding day and so I had Danka of Black Butterfly make skirts. I bought tops and had pumps made...so that the day won't feel so long in heels! I think they are all quite happy with this! Long gone are the days of perfectly matched bridesmaids with uncomfortable, scratchy dresses (that they can never wear again). Enter the pretty, happy bridesmaid who isn't cursing you mid-ceremony for making her look like a cream puff from the 80's.
Thank you bridesmaids for being so lovely!
