DIY // Bridesmaid Survival Kits

I’m going to be a bridesmaid!

Bridesmaid Survival Kit

One of my very best friends, and one of MY bridesmaids, Marisa, recently got engaged (yay!), and a week or so after hearing the news, myself and her other bridesmaids received our own pinterest-inspired bridesmaid survival kits. Totally fun and a totally cute idea, right? I thought they were great so I wanted to share them here.

Inside the Bridesmaid Survival Kit

Marisa bought plastic storage boxes and decorated the bottom of them with decorative shelf liner paper cut to size. Glittery silver sticker-letters spell out “Bridesmaid Survial Kit” on the lid of the box. She mentioned to me that she had trouble getting the stickers to stick on their own, so she modge-podged them. She also included a cute “Got the guy, need my girls” card with the box.

Bridesmaid Survival Kit Essentials

Inside the kit are all of the essentials to keep any bridesmaid looking their best on the big day including:

  • lip balm
  • tissues
  • hair elastics
  • calming lavender-scented lotion
  • pain reliever tablets
  • face blotting sheets (to take away any sweaty oily-ness)
  • lint roller
  • nail polish top coat
  • breath mints
  • bobby pins
  • band aid
  • spray-on wrinkle remover
  • hand sanitizer
  • makeup remover wipes
  • vitamin C tablets
  • and a nip of alcohol :)

All the essentials! I loved the kit – and Marisa might be seeing some similar stuff in her bridesmaid gift a few months from now…

Can’t wait to be a bridesmaid next year!



Bridesmaids Dresses

Today is the day I go with my bridesmaids to pick out dresses! Very excited. Lots to think about. My bridal party is relatively small – 3 girlfriends and a flower girl. Some of the dress inspiration:
