many holiday events to get ready for.
idea is to focus on things we give thanks for, including our

in fall colors and leaves also using colorful autumn flower
arrangements. Ask the bride what her favorite flowers are of the season.
Have the bridesmaids discuss what they give thanks for, focusing on the
friendship of the bride-to-be, which is special. Have all the
bridesmaids write them down for a keepsake book, which will be a great
gift for the bride-to-be! It is always fun to play
shower games and spread them out during the party.
Fall is also a great time to throw
bachelorette party since the weather is more cool and venues are
more open and reasonable. In this economic time, we suggest using
bachelorette party fun for your supplies since they have the lowest
prices, no sales tax and offer free shipping while always placing a free
gift in your order.
If you are the
honor you can tie in the season of thanks in the
honor speech. Just make sure to give yourself enough time to write!
In this economy, go in together with other bridesmaids on the
shower gift as there are great deals out there. Check out some pretty fall
dresses and start early so you have time during this fall season to
alter or make sure the bridal store gets it right. Accent the
with cute items that are fall related. It is also a great time to give
during the Thanksgiving bridesmaid season so donate to one of your
favorite charities if you have the funds as there are many in need.
Happy Thanksgiving to all (even for those outside of the US).
