Step 1: Choose a Theme

First things first, let’s set the mood for your bridesmaid proposal. Think of a theme that resonates with your personality and wedding vision. Whether it’s boho chic or classic elegance, let your theme set the tone for your bridesmaid proposal boxes. If you’re planning to have a destination wedding, you can include gifts that match the location. (We have an entire collection of Tropical Gifts.) Have a color scheme in mind?

Step 3: Fill it with Bridal Party Essentials

No proposal box is complete without a few gifts to make it wow. Get your girls excited for the wedding by including essential items they can use on the big day. Gift them matching robes & slippers that they can wear while getting ready. Or surprise them with fun shirts and glasses to wear during the bachelorette party.

2024 Wedding Trend Predictions

With the new year, comes new trends and we can’t wait to see what wedding trends emerge this year. Picture this: content creators turning “I Do” into Insta-gold, private ceremonies for a more intimate affair, and a groovy trip back to the 70s. Join us as we spill the tea on what we think more couples will do for their weddings in 2024. Ready for the deets on these wedding trend predictions? Let’s dive in!

Wedding Content Creators

The first wedding trend, one that was taking everyone by storm in 2023, is wedding content creators. We saw social media content creators niche down and offer their services to brides on their wedding day. With all the excitement and eagerness of getting married, you might not remember to film that video clip for a TikTok trend that you wanted to do. Having a personal content creator on your wedding day solves that pain point. They capture all the fun and candid moments throughout your big day so you can stay off your phone and stay present in the moment. You don’t have to be an influencer to want to share your wedding moments on IG or TikTok. Hiring a wedding content creator is a different way to capture candid, unforgettable moments on your big day.

(If you’re on a tight budget and can’t afford another vendor, you could ask that tech-savvy friend of yours to be in charge. Perhaps you have a junior bridesmaid who knows all the TikTok trends and dances.)

70s-Inspired Aesthetics

Get ready to throw it back to the days of disco balls and flower power! According to Pinterest Predicts, the 70s are making a comeback in bridal aesthetics. Bringing back bohemian florals, flowy sleeves, and a whole lot of groovy vibes. Brides in 2024 are saying yes to the free-spirited, laid-back feels of the 70s, turning their weddings into a nostalgic dance of love. Wedding color palettes will incorporate more mustard yellows, burnt oranges, and earthy browns. Dance floors will be transformed into a funky disco where the couple and guests can boogie the night away. 2024 is all about timeless love and a whole lot of retro charm.

Digital Guest Books

Out with the pen and paper, in with digital memories! Digital guest books are the new wedding trend, letting guests leave messages, photos, and even videos for the couple to look back on. It allows guests to better capture their energy while celebrating the newlywed. A popular alternative are Polaroid guestbooks where guests snap a photo with a Polaroid camera. Now the concept has been entirely digitalized with QR codes that allow guests to upload photos straight from their phone. Sites like Guestpix or Kulu, make it easy for your guests to share their images, no app required. We think more couples will place these QR codes throughout their reception so guests can share their photos with ease.

Private Ceremony

Another wedding trend that we predict for 2024, is more couples opting for a private ceremony before their grand celebration. Private ceremonies allow couples to exchange vows in a setting that truly resonates with their love story. It allows the couple to have a heartfelt moment without the pressure of adhering to traditional norms. Whether it’s a secluded garden, a beach at sunset, or the comfort of home, private ceremonies offer the flexibility to choose a location that holds sentimental value. After the intimate “I Dos” they can celebrate with the rest of their friends and family at the reception.

Pearls & Bows

Lastly, we think classic elegance will get a modern twist with pearls and bows stealing the spotlight. Pearls, the OG symbol of sophistication, are continuing to make a comeback in bridal accessories and decor. Paired with whimsical bows, it’s a combo that adds a touch of romance and charm to the wedding scene. Nothing says romance quite like a beautifully tied bow. From delicate bows accentuating the back of a wedding dress to oversized bows adorning chairs or floral arrangements. It’s traditional but with a modern twist.

Alright, wedding trendsetters, get ready to say “I Do” in style in 2024! From digital guest books to pearls & bows bringing classic charm, it’s a year of bridal trends that’ll make your heart race. Stay tuned as we share how to turn your wedding dreams into reality!

A Unique Wedding Day Task For Your Bridesmaids: Instagram Story Takeover

Lauren Giraldo and her husband walking down the street in a white dress, performing their wedding day task.

Weddings can be a whirlwind of tasks and responsibilities that are necessary to make the day perfect. When you’re busy getting ready to walk down the aisle, it’s easy to forget to capture the candid and goofy moments with your loved ones. While professional photographers and videographers ensure magazine-worthy shots, they might miss the real chaos and shenanigans that happen behind the scenes. A fun way to capture those candid moments on your wedding day is to have your bridesmaids do an Instagram Story Takeover!

Recently, we saw Instagram Influencer, @laurengiraldo, completely hand over her Instagram account to one of her besties during her wedding! Throughout the day, her friends uploaded lighthearted pictures and videos. Everyone following Lauren, including family members that couldn’t attend, were able to still feel like they were there. Plus, the Instagram story takeover was a unique way to capture the days events that gave the bride and groom a different perspective to remember their big day.

Wedding Day Task: Maid of Media

Ready to make your wedding day unforgettable on Insta?📸 First, pick a friend who is Instagram-savy and appoint them as your Maid of Media. They’ll be in charge of capturing behind-the-scenes content of the entire wedding weekend. Creating stories on Instagram is simple, so there are really no instructions needed! Just give them a heads-up if there are certain things that are off-limits and to ask guests for permission before sharing candid snaps. All that’s left to do is log them into your Instagram account and let them post away. You’ll feel like a real IG Influencer knowing that your special day is virtually being shared to all your loved ones, whether they’re there in person or cheering you on from afar!

Take inspiration from @laurengiraldo, who had her best friends handle her Instagram Stories throughout her destination wedding in Columbia. Everyone following Lauren, including loved ones that couldn’t attend, watched her getting ready in the bridal suite with her bridesmaids, applying her wedding day accessories, and eventually celebrating her new title as Mrs. Lago. The content was full of smiles, cheering, and joyous tears that, by the end, had everyone reaching for a tissue.

Pro Tips for Instagram Stories:

To help your friends with the Wedding Day Instagram Takeover, we’ve put together a few social media tips that you can share with your Maid Of Media.

  • Start the takeover by letting your followers know that you’ll be handing over the phone to your Maid of Media for an IG takeover. Show it with a video story for a personal touch!
  • Use one hashtag that encapsulates the day throughout your stories.
    ex: #________isgettingmarried, #mrandmrs________, #________inlove, etc.
  • Have your bridesmaids film the day before (or days leading up to) the wedding. Capture videos and pictures of everyone arriving and any fun pre-wedding events like the welcome lunch or rehearsal dinner.
  • Add a countdown button 12hrs before on Instragram stories to notify the audience when the wedding starts!
  • Instagram lets you save your stories in a special bubble called “Highlights” on your profile. You can save all your wedding day stories there so people can continue to enjoy the content even after the 24-hour stories disappear!
  • Pass the phone to each bridesmaid and ask which part of the day they are looking forward to the most. 
  • Have the bridal party and guests take a selfie video and leave a surprise message for the bride & groom.
  • Try utilizing captions, polls, stickers, and gifs, to spice up your stories and engage with your followers.

Let The Instagram Party Begin

There you have it! Planning an Instagram Story Takeover for your wedding is the ultimate recipe for fun and unforgettable memories! Let your bridesmaids work their magic, capturing all the candid craziness and heartwarming moments. Your special day will be an Insta-hit, and your friends and family, near or far, can join in on the special day.

So, go ahead and snap, post, and celebrate like never before. It’s time to make your wedding an epic story worth sharing! Make sure to tag @weddingfavorites so we can “be there” with you too.

Boho Bridal Shower Idea

We love all things boho-inspired & our bride Adriana did not disappoint with her bridal shower decor! We were so honored that she incorporated our pieces on her special day, especially since she’s been with us since her bridesmaid proposals. Now, we’re sharing a closer look of her backyard bridal shower to give you some decoration inspo!

Theme & Decor

A rustic wooden backdrop that included an “Almost Mrs.” sign, created by @_mikbydesign, was the first thing guests saw when entering. It made the perfect photo-op for guests to take pictures with the bride-to-be. In addition, the bridal shower incorporated warm neutral tones, unique textures, and mixed florals paired with cushions and balloons to tie the theme together. Throughout the event, subtle signage adorned the entrance, gift table, and mimosa bar.

Seating & Florals 

Guests were able to enjoy each other’s company while being seated around a long white table decorated with rustic decor. Starting off, the decorative plates and beautiful floral arrangements by @prettylilthingslb, made the perfect table setting for the special occasion. A mixture of fresh and dried flower arrangements, which sat along the table, further enhanced the boho decorations. Ultimately, our favorite touch was the large wicker chair at the head of the table for the bride-to-be. It was a gorgeous addition to the shower, and very on-trend for the theme. 

Drinks & Food

Bridal showers aren’t complete without the sweet treats! Adriana had such a yummy dessert table that had a little something for everyone. From donuts to mini-tiramisus, @riassweetsandcatering stole the show with their intricate desserts. They even made a personalized charcuterie board that spelled out “Future Mrs Alvarez” in cheese! All the desserts were displayed on various wooden boards surrounded by eucalyptus stems which complimented the boho theme. Together with the hors-d’oeuvres was a Bubbly Bar station where guests could create their own mimosas with a mixture of fruits & juices.

Bride-To-Be OOTD

You can’t forget about the bride! Adriana was wearing a white two-piece outfit with matching heels for a stylish bride-to-be look! She accessorized her look with our Bride Headband and Personalized Veil. In addition, she threw on our Personalized Fringe Jacket with her new last name. She slayed the look, to say the least. 😍

If you decide to incorporate our pieces in your bridal shower, make sure to tag us on Instagram! We love seeing our products in action. Again, congrats to the lovely couple Mr. & Mrs. Alvarez and thank you to Adriana & her photographer @lizztinphoto for letting us feature her bridal shower. 

How to Fold Round Towels

Start off your summer bachelorette with the cutest Personalized Round Towels for your entire bridal party! Pair them with our Custom Kraft Labels for the perfect welcome favor. It’ll be a memorable and practical gift your girls will never forget.

Our folded Round Towels are our signature look and we’re here to let you in on all the details! Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to achieve our rolled towels look.

1. Lay your towel out on a flat surface. Make sure to smooth out any creases.

2. Fold the towel in half making sure that you can still see the print/design of your towel.

3. Fold the towel in half again.

4. Flip your towel over so the fringe side is down.

5. Begin rolling your towel. We suggest going slow to make sure you have a tight roll.

6. Now that you have your rolled towel, you can add your Towel Label

7. Once applied you can add the rolled towel to the rest of your bachelorette goodies!

This is a simple way to give our towels a super chic look! Make sure to tag us if you try to recreate this look with your towels!
