My wedding day is so close which means wedding planning is in full swing! With the larger things checked off our list (wedding dress, venue, photographer, etc.) I’ve been able to dive into the finer details: ways to make my engagement more special, prepping for our first dance, ensuring I will be photo-ready and more. Focusing on these details has really been brought to life with some amazing brands that I have come across and I am so excited to share! Here are 5 brands I recommend looking into when planning special events in your life.
The Ring Boxes is a bridal subscription box that counts down to your wedding date with you. They send you monthly boxes filled with sweet gifts that just make you smile. Every time I open a box from The Ring Boxes I feel like they are just as excited about my wedding as I am. Each box is full of little gifts to make your engagement extra special. Some of the gifts in my boxes have been vow books and pens for Branden and I to write our vows in, a wedding dress bag for transporting my dress, bride balloons and even a garter. The gifts were so personal and made me feel so special. You literally get to unbox wedding happiness every month! Check them out here.
This genius idea saved me $$$ on wedding flowers. Something Borrowed Blooms is a premium silk flower rental company that I instantly fell in love with. Their rent-and-return system makes it so easy to get beautiful flowers for your wedding without the huge price tag. I loved the variety of flowers. I am going for a classic white and greenery look, and they had so many beautiful options for me to choose from. Something Borrowed Blooms had gorgeous bridal bouquets, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and even florals for an arch/decor. The best part is that your flowers stay perfect all day long and are wilt-free! They are a budget-friendly option that also eliminates waste, and I highly recommend checking them out.

On your wedding day you take pictures that you look back on forever, maybe even withyour grandchildren!. Why not look your best? I’ve used Snow teeth whitening so many times and I am always impressed with how quickly I notice a difference in my teeth. Having a bright white smile was something I really wanted for my wedding. I plan on smiling the day away on my wedding day and I want my smile to be brighter than ever. Using the Snow teeth whitening system was so easy and they have guaranteed results. If you have a special day coming up, or just want a boost of confidence, check out Snow here.
A fun way to celebrate your guests is by sharing a glass of wine with them. Whether you are making a wedding toast, sharing a drink at your bachelorette party, or sipping some wine on your honeymoon, raise a glass of Risata! Risata wines are sourced from the finest vineyards in Italy for premium quality that elevates any moment. Try their Sparkling Rose, Scarlet, Raven, Pink Moscato, Red Moscato or everyone’s’ favorite – the Moscato d’Asti. Enjoy deliciously sweet bubbly with their whole lineup of wines that pair perfectly with moments big and small. Check out Risata here.
My first dance with Branden is something I constantly think about. It is a timeless wedding tradition that makes me so excited!t! WheneverI go to a wedding, one of my personal favorite parts is when the newly married couple shares their first dance together. I had thought about taking dance lessons, but I wasn’t sure if I could drag Branden with me! That’s when I was reminded of Show Her Off. Their online dance lessons are the perfect way to learn a few new moves with your partner. They are all pre-recorded so you can go at your own pace. Branden and I have spent a few date nights, from home, learning some new moves and laughing as we figure out the steps. Stayed tuned for how our first dance turns out on November 13th! Check out Show Her Off here.
Being engaged is just SO fun! Planning out these little details has been such a blast and I can’t wait for November 13th when it all comes together. If you have any wedding tips, please share. In the meantime, check out these amazing brands and save this link for when you plan for the special moments in your life.
