Let’s be real, most of your bridesmaids already know they’re going to be in your wedding. But you still have to ask and they have to agree. Being a bridesmaid is no easy task and you’re going to need those girls to help you get your shit together before the wedding. So why not do it in a fun, personal way?
I wanted to gift them something for being a part of my wedding that they could also wear on my wedding day. I figured providing these Badgley Mischka Tampa embellished heels was just one less thing they would have to worry about buying before the wedding! It was important to me I gave them a pair that would be both great for the wedding (& dressy enough since we are doing black tie) and one they could get more use out of for future formal events. I love that they will also be able to dress these down with a pair of boyfriend jeans or a skirt & t-shirt — now I need a pair!
I can’t take full credit though….I got this idea from my sister and her bridesmaids loved it, so I decided to do the same and put my own twist on it. She used Badgley Mischka for gifting her bridesmaids as well and once I saw the selection it was a no brainer. I fell in love with the Tampa embellished heel and I think my girls did to — everyone said YES! Once I received them, I literally gasped while unwrapping them. They’re even more stunning in person, but I mean what woman doesn’t love a pair of sparkly heels?
I love to DIY and get crafty, pretty much any opportunity I get. It’s a way to add personal touches and assures you that you’re not going to find the same thing on the shelf in a store. I went to hobby lobby for all of my paper crafts to make the cards. I tried to get fancy with it by layering different textures, but a simple card would do as well.
It’s even more personal when you make the cards from scratch and come up with the words yourself. I stole part of this poem from something I saw on Pinterest and tweaked the words to be more my style. I also changed up the wording for my Matron of Honor and my future Sister in Law to make theirs a little more special.
A huge thank you to Badgley Mischka for providing my bridesmaids with the most stunning shoes. I know they all can’t wait to wear them on my special day!
