15 Things You Can’t Forget On Your Big Day!

As you wake up the day of your big event, you are excited and eager to get the day rolling. You wake up, have breakfast, then maybe go get your hair and makeup done. Before you know it, the day is gone and your event is starting in an hour! As you pull up to your event, you realize you need a fresh coat of lipstick, but you left it at home! BUT rather than having someone run back and get it or going the day without it, you luckily packed an extra lipstick your Emergency Day-Of Kit. Not only can this kit come in handy for you, but you could be a life-saver for someone else. No matter what kind of event you’re throwing, keeping an Emergency Day-Of Kit will save you from the little things that are  needed, but somehow always forgotten:

  1. Band-aids
  2. A neutral lipstick
  3. Makeup wipes
  4. Chapstick
  5. A sewing kit
  6. mattifying powder and a mini brush
  7. mints/gum
  8. mini deoderant
  9. bobby pins
  10. a pen
  11. a sharpie

Tis’ The Season For Your Holiday Party!

While you may think decoration options are limited, there are plenty of ways to deck the halls!

The Blue Dress: A Story

It was about three weeks until my friend’s big day, and I was probably the least prepared bridesmaid in the history of weddings. I had not gone on a diet, I didn’t have a date, I had no idea what my hair and makeup was supposed to look like, I had no clue what to get my friend as a wedding gift, but most importantly I didn’t have a dress. I know all you brides-to-be are having a heart attack reading this because you know how stressful that situation can be, but let me break it down. First of all, I never seemed to have the money to buy a dress. Every paycheck I get goes to bills, groceries, and (more often than you’d think) birthday gifts. On top of that, the wedding was Game of Thrones themed, so my friend wanted the dress to be long, flowy, and an impossible-to-find-in-stores shade of blue. I’ve gone to every department store and boutique I know of, and although I did find the color I needed, I couldn’t find the perfect style. So at this point, I was on every website trying to find a dress that’s not only in the steel blue color my friend requested, but a dress that would be here on time.

I met my friend (we’ll call her Brenda) my freshman year of college. Me and my two best friends from my hometown ended up going to college together. The three of us met Brenda at an event for all the freshman who lived on campus. After the event, my two friends and I stayed up until dawn talking with all our new friends we’d made (including Brenda). That night was a start to a beautiful friendship. The rest of our freshman year flew by in a blur of long nights and Whataburger runs. Now, just a few years later, Brenda was getting married and me and my two friends didn’t have dresses.

In my defense, my friend didn’t really start talking about the dresses until about a month or two before the wedding. She’s a very relaxed, laid-back girl who told us we could pick the style as long as it was that particular shade of blue, long, flowy, and here by the wedding date. I’m lucky she didn’t kill me for waiting so long to get a dress—Brenda is probably the nicest, understanding person I know and I admire her for that. But that’s not an excuse and I definitely shouldn’t have waited so long. She even gave us a website to rent the exact dress she wanted–but because I waited so long, the website indicated that I was not able to deliver the dress on time.

I spent days looking online for a dress, and it probably would have gotten to me on time if I didn’t take days to decide on one. I kept going back to that website Brenda suggested. I decided to reach out to them to see if by a miracle they could help me out. Sure enough, after an email to customer service, I was introduced to a woman, Kristina, via email. She was able to help me out, give me suggestions on styles similar to what I (or rather Brenda) had in mind, and she even let me know upfront that I should order the dress ASAP so it would definitely be delivered to me on time. I don’t know what I would have done without their help!
