Okay…are you ready for this? I’ve been in 13 different bridal parties. Yep, 27 Dresses is kinda close to my life story. Of all the bridesmaid gifts that I received throughout the years, I still use the following:
One of the robes
One of the wraps (like a pashmina that matched the dress because this bride got married outdoors in a vineyard, and it was forecasted to be cool in the evening – how thoughtful is that?!)
A strand of freshwater pearls.
Those were all great gifts because I think of the special girl that gave them to me when I use each of those items.
Other helpful and much appreciated “gifts”, paying half for an expensive bridesmaid dress; paying for hair and make-up; paying for shoes.
Honestly, I don’t remember the other gifts…(shhhh – don’t tell them)…as a bride, I’m sure you’d want your special ladies to remember the gifts. And, that romper…oh yeah, I’d totally use that over and over again. Adorbs!
