First, I'm really sorry for my english, but i really need an advice from you girls.
I'm maid of honour for my best friend wedding. I'm also a event planner in some europen country where pre-wedding parties aren't so popular like in US, but i like to export new trends and ideas partly beacuse it's my job, and partly beacuse i love idea of celebrating every important situation in life.
So i would like that my bestie have "full wedding experience", and what is the better ocassion to create girls party then day of shopping a wedding dress.
I think in the morning all bridesmaids and our bride would go to wedding shops, i would like to create "wedding shopping dress kit". What should i add to it? I think about some home made snack(granola bar, mini salad etc.), water, mini champagne, painkillers, bobby pins, hair brush, diy signs for bridesmaid("yes", "no", "say yes to the dress", "next" etc.). What else?
And second problem is what theme should this party has? After the shopping i want to make lunch. I'm a good cook, and my diy decoration skill are also ok, so i think i can manage. I will arrange everything in the morning and then only invite girl.
But i don't know what theme use? I think about disney movies(princesses and all), parisian, fashion, but i'm affraid it will be to sweet for our brides, who likes girlly things but not so much like i do. I don't want to overwhelm her.
Then i think about chesee and wine tasting party(she loves wine), but i'm affraid this is "too distant" for such femine party.
I need something on the middle. She likes nature(but it's to cold for picnic
), fantasy, games(LOL), books, art, beauty(she is nails-freak), but she is also a "cold" buisness women, in prive she is casual(don't like too "fancy" and "expencive" places).
