I had three bridesmaids: my sister, my sister-in-law, and one of my oldest and best friends. One was all about telling me the truth and squelching bridezilla tendencies, one was an amazingly calm + happy influence, and one was all about having fun. The exact combination a bride needs. Before the wedding rehearsal, we enjoyed Afternoon Tea together, and I gave them their gifts.
Tote bags: I got this cute idea from luella & june. See the inspiration here.
