When interviewing bride Laine, she told me that one of her favorite photos from the day was of her and her bridesmaids getting ready. They all donned Julianna Rae silk robes (a gift from Laine) that matched the soft silver tone of the wedding accents.
The girls got ready at the country retreat of the bride and groom's friend (and the one who set them up), and while together enjoyed a light lunch, mimosas, and lots of chamomile tea (to calm the bride's nerves). For some reason, U2 was the only thing Laine wanted to listen to, and because he loves his daughter, Laine's dad showed up with a big steamer to prep everyone's dresses while they were in hair and makeup. Her dad still found time to perfect his notes for the toast at the reception, too.
So, what are you and your bridesmaids doing the morning of your wedding? Are you all wearing something that coordinates? Any ideas for what music you'll play? The time goes fast, but it's special and another fun thing to personalize.
