It has been quite awhile since my friend Angela won The 400th Comment Contest and I owed her a prize! Since all my crafting supplies are still packed away in boxes, I used the fact that Angela is getting married in September to inspire what her prize would become. I have made these kits before for soon-to-be brides, so it worked out perfectly that Angela made the 400th comment on My Color Coded Life.
I found everything I needed to make this Bridal Survival Kit at Target. I mean seriously – what CAN’T you find at Target?
I bought a small blue make-up bag. I think it’s important that the bag not be too bulky. This is something the Maid-of Honor can just throw in a tote (maybe the one that has the bridal slippers or flats) or the limo and it won’t take up too much room. I only buy GENERIC items that specific brands do not matter. On her wedding day, a bride is going to want the specific products that she uses. The products I included are ones that it doesn’t matter what specific brand they are. What’s in this kit: tissues, bobby pins, first aid kit, Altoids, Tide-To-Go pen, nail file, Colgate whispers, chapstick and deodorant. I know what you are going to say – deodorant? That is something she will want her own brand of. True, but this small deodorant is for her legs!! What??!! Yes – a little bridal tip – especially if you are getting married in the summer and have a big long dress – put some deodorant on your thighs. Just trust me on this one!
Here is a note I attached to the gift reminding the bride of her own items that she should add to this kit. I also included a small happy sign – after all the planning and perhaps stress, hopefully the bride will relax, have a fun day, and BE HAPPY!
I put the prize in a yellow bag which I knew was part of Angela’s wedding color scheme.
Congrats to Angela not only on her upcoming wedding – but for making the 400th comment on my blog and winning The 400th Comment Contest! Wondering what other prizes I have given away? Check out the following:
