FANCY GETAWAY

If you really, really want to treat your girls, why not plan a pre-wedding vacation to relax and spend time with your besties? Consider it a sort of bridesmaids honeymoon. Cambria’s gorgeous Italy trip is all the convincing we need.

CALLIGRAPHY CLASS

Do something for your girls that they’ll be able to use beyond your wedding! We’re big fans of calligraphy classes around these parts, especially Laura Hooper’s lovely workshop. And bonus? You could even recruit your ‘maids after to help with your wedding invitations!

DRESS SHOPPING

This seems like a no-brainer, but you’ll definitely want at least a couple of your girls with you when dress shopping. You might already know exactly what you want, but having a second opinion is always a good idea! And trust us, they’ll SO appreciate being included on their bridesmaids dress selection.
