Wedding planning is a daunting task, but I am going to take you all through my journey as I plan so that hopefully you can learn a bit about the process as I plan for my big day. Today’s post is the first in what I’m sure will be many installments of bridal and wedding related posts in the coming year. Right now, I’d love to tell you about some awesome Bridal must-have’s that I have recently discovered and am loving! Read on to see more, because I have some awesome specials and promo codes to offer you lovely brides to be!

Badgley Mischka Bridal Footwear and JEWEL Line
Badgley Mischka has long been a crowd favorite for wedding shoes. A lot of my girlfriends who have already gotten married have worn Badgley Mischka shoes on their big day, and its pretty easy to see why. These shoes look like they are fit for a princess. I chose the “Dawn” style from the Bridal footwear line (pictured lower) and the “Hayden” from the Jewel Line (pictured on top). Both of these pairs of shoes are absolutely exquisite, and actually pretty comfortable. The great thing is that both lines have plenty of styles and heel heights to choose from, so even if you don’t want a high heel, they also have amazing lower heels and flats that would be amazing as well. I know they are going to look amazing with whatever dress I choose and will make for some gorgeous pictures! Small, beautiful details even on your shoes really add up to make you feel super special on your big day.

Crane Stationery: William Arthur Wedding Collection The Studio Collection
Another bridal must have is without a doubt your “save the date” and wedding invitations. These two items are a really great way to not only show off you and your fiance’s personality as a couple but set the tone for your wedding’s overall theme by subtly hinting to your guests of what to expect from your ceremony and reception. I love the samples I received from William Arthur. Each sample is so elegant and refined. They have such a beautiful feel to them and give off a very luxurious air. Finding the right wedding invitation for you can be really daunting, as there are just so many options out there. One way to make the decision process easier is to go in person so you can experience for yourself the invitations first hand, rather than just looking at images online. You can find a William Arthur retailer near you here.

I especially loved the Cityscape Suite, such a chic touch to put this skyline inside the envelope. It would be perfect for a modern style wedding in an urban setting!
European Wax Center
Getting smooth and hair free is definitely another bridal must have. Whether its your legs, bikini, eyebrows, or under arms, if you want to be hair-free on your big day and for your honeymoon, waxing is such a great option because it lasts so much longer than shaving every day. European Wax Center is fantastic for helping you with all your hair removal needs because they have waxing specialists to help you with all your waxing needs. I feel so much more confident and comfortable when I’ve got smooth skin. Not only is European Wax Center a great place to go for their waxing services, they also make some great products for you to maintain your smooth skin at home. Their Smooth Me Ingrown Hair Serum is seriously a lifesaver: nobody likes having ingrown hairs, and they look terrible. You can use it once a day as a preventative measure, or twice a day to help cure current breakouts. Their Renew Me Restoring Serum is also ah-mazing. Its not only great after waxing, but everyday to help calm and restore skin, and helps with irritation and redness. Planning a wedding is stressful, but this stuff really helps keep my face glowing and replenished while I deal with all of life’s other stresses.

Maps by A. Jaffe
Getting married is a huge moment in a person’s life, and these memories deserve to be commemorated in special ways. A. Jaffe creates beautiful personalized necklaces that help you do just that. You can pick any location in the world that has special meaning to you and have the map of that location engraved on the pendant, with a small diamond to mark the exact spot. I chose the location where my fiance and I got engaged. This necklace is absolutely stunning and it is something I will wear for the rest of my life that will always remind me of that life changing moment. You also have the option to engrave a custom message or a second map on the flip side. If you’re not getting married, these also make great gifts for your loved ones and special memories that you share.

As much fun as going to a department store and using that little gun to add stuff to your registry probably is, it is both time-consuming and not very convenient. Zola is an online registry site that lets you create your registry anywhere, anytime from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. I love this because I don’t know when I will be able to go and set up my registry in the traditional way, and Zola lets me add items to my registry while I’m on the go. My fiance can also contribute to this as well, which is fantastic. I’ve got my heart set on this pink Kitchen Aid mixer while he is all about the Parachute bedding. Honestly, this has been the most fun aspect of wedding planning so far, is planning out our future home as a married couple. Get started on your Zola registry here!
If there’s one fashion-ism I firmly believe in, its that when you have pretty undergarments on, it makes you feel that much more confident and sexy. This is definitely something you want to feel on your wedding day, and picking up some fun bridal lingerie to wear on your big day and for your honeymoon is a great idea. Hanky Panky has been a long-time favorite underwear brand of mine for their beautiful details and their comfort. The design of their thongs are so flattering and the best part about them is that they don’t give you any of the dreaded VPL…aka “visible panty lines.” This particular style is called the Mrs. Low Rise thong, and I love the little blue jewel embellishments on it.

Algenist Make-Up Setting Spray
One issue that I have been having a lot lately is getting my makeup to stay put all day long. Nothing is more annoying than realizing halfway through your day that you need to reapply your makeup. This is the last thing you want on your big day, so I was thrilled to get to try this setting spray from Algenist. I love how easy it is to use, you just spray it in a sort of Z motion across your face. It is so hydrating and it really does help my makeup stay put throughout the day while also hydrating my skin. Its a great product to keep on hand and give yourself a spritz later in the day as you need a refresh for your skin as well.
You can check out Algenist here. Make sure to use code BABBLEBOX15 at checkout from now until June 30th for 15% off sitewide!
Thanks so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed all these awesome products and I provided you a little wedding inspiration!
