Music to Get Ready to Before you Get Married

Music to Get Ready to Before you Get Married

I was in the bride and bridesmaid’s designated ‘primping’ room the other morning when the girls realized something was missing. Music. “Do you have any?” they asked. Out came my Ipod and we plugged it into the hotel's docking station.

Your Mom's Wedding Dress?

If you really wanted to try and wear that gorgeous wedding gown your mother wore on her day, but it doesn’t fit you right. Don’t worry, go dress shopping with your mom and get your own. After a perfect day trying on a ton of dresses ask her if it would be ok to take parts of her wedding dress to wrap your flowers in. This might seem as a shock to her, but tell her how honored you would be to have it be apart of your special day.  


Soon to be Mrs...............

Want to look adorable when you are getting ready on your wedding day and be ALMOST a Mrs? Sweatsedo's cute tops and bottoms are perfect and comfortable outfits for getting ready at the salon, hotel room or even at your own home. And the zip up tops work great for being able to get in and out of them easily after your hair is looking adorable!
