There’s nothing more special than those ladies who will stand by your side as you say, “I Do” to the man of your dreams. They’ve been with you through thick and thin and for all of those years of friendship, the least you can do is say “thank you” for all of the ups and the downs and the tears and the laughter. And while Bridal Showers are typically focused on the bride, we have a fun, new idea for you:

Sponsored with love by WeddingForward

Some bridal showers are big and some bridal showers are small. Some bridal showers only include closest family and some include extended family and friends. And you know what's so great? There's no right or wrong way to do it.

But what I do know, is that it's a time for the bride to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. This day is celebrating YOU. And even better...you don't even have to plan it! Pretty cool, huh? I mean, you're busy planning your wedding so this is one day to just let it go and let everyone else do the work for you.

Today we will celebrate YOU.

Bali Lace N' Smooth Body Briefer

Whether you're looking for a gorgeous, lace bridal undergarment for your wedding day or something to bring with you on the honeymoon, this affordable lace bridal bodysuit is totally stunning (and totally comfy too!). The soft and breathable stretch provides firm control as it shapes and smooths your tummy, waist and derriere and the softly-lined underwire cups provide shapely support. Oh yeah, and did I mention how gorgeous it is?? See for yourself! Shop Bali Lace Shapewear by clicking the link below!


RingHero Ring Storage

The RingHero keeps your rings safe and protects them from sweat, damage and theft. Wearing your rings in an environment where they could come in contact with hard surfaces -- weight lifting, yoga, running, biking, golf, boxing, gardening, house work, doing the dishes, swimming, showering -- could bend your ring, loosening the settings and eventually causing your precious stones to fall out. So this super soft, wearable ring storage bracelet is the perfect accessory for when you're working out, swimming, traveling or for every day wear.

Since we will be enjoying a lot of beach time this summer, this is the perfect accessory for me!

ZOYA Nail Polish

This Zoya spring nail polish color trio provieds the perfect colors for this spring and summer. Oh yeah, and great color choices for the bridal shower, bachelorette party and just every day wear showing off that new bling you've got! Zoya is a Big10 free breathable formula free of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Dibutl, Toluene, Camphor, TPHP, Parabens, Xylene, Ethyl, Tosylamide, Lead. Zoya’s award winning color is the healthier choice of fashion and one of the best choices of pregnant and health conscious women worldwide. And I'm thinking that Abby color is my new Spring fave!
