Bridesmaids’ Luncheon

I am so excited
because this is my first post to write being an actual wife…so that means the
name of my blog finally makes since! Yay! Now I am actually a little duck wife!

 I am not writing about the wedding quite
yet…BUT we are down to wedding business! There was a lot of fun stuff that
happened leading up to the wedding- like my bridesmaids’ luncheon. So I’m so
excited to tell you about it and show you all our fun pictures. PLUS I gave
them some goodies, and wanted to share with you what they are in case we have
any brides out there looking for bridesmaids’ gifts.
Let’s get started…
I had been thinking
for months about what I wanted to give my bridesmaids. These girls are so
special to me so it had to be great, it had to meaningful, it had to be
personal, but I also wanted it to be something that could come in handy on the
big day. And I feel like I finally made some decisions that made all of those
things possible.
I knew we would be
taking a million pictures while getting ready, so why not give them something
cute to wear? Also, this wedding was a full day event for them so it had to be
comfy. I found the perfect solution. As soon as I opened the package I fell in
love with them, and as soon as the girls opened theirs, they did too. They made
for the CUTEST pictures! I gave them pink ones and I wore blue for my
“something blue”. 

When it comes to my
bridesmaids, I have got some serious coffee drinkers
on my hands. And a long
wedding day means a lot of coffee. These mugs are precious and what I really
love about them is they come with so many different sayings. So each one I
picked I knew exactly which girl would get it. And they LOVED seeing which ones
everybody got and got the biggest kick out of how perfectly they suited
everyone. I even have a Mrs. Fancy Pants and JL got a Mr. Handsome;)

Sweet Kelsea sent me
one of her leather pouches a few months ago and I use it ALL. THE. TIME. It’s
the perfect size to throw in a purse or bag and I carry my many lipsticks in
it. So, I immediately knew I wanted to give my special ladies one of the bags
to carry their things in on the wedding day. I went with silver bags to make it
a little dressier for the wedding. AND GUESS WHAT! I got their initials on

(She doesn’t have these exact ones up on her site, but I’ve linked a very similar one!)

Rebecca carries
ALLTHEWIRE at Duck and Dressing, so when the founders heard about the wedding
they wanted to send us all little pretties. Their jewelry is hand-stamped, so
it can be as personal as you want it…perfect. At first we talked about putting
all the girls’ initials on the necklaces and cuffs, but I wanted to do
something even more special. So we decided to go with fun names…like nicknames,
inside jokes, or instagram names. They LOVED it. Especially Rebecca’s saying
“Leauxla’s Mom”. (Leauxla aka her Frenchie…check her out on insta haha). Tori
and Deseree also wanted to do something special for me and both my mom and Mrs.
Korie. So they sent us necklaces with our wedding dates stamped on in roman
numerals. LOVE!

And if you are loving
the sound of these awesome gifts and want to order your bridesmaids, friends,
(or yourself haha) something from LOVE OPHELIA or ALLTHEWIRE, I have a surprise
for you! Promo codes whoop whoop!

ALLTHEWIRE: 15% off all products with the code: littleduckwife at checkout

Now to the luncheon
We decided to throw a
luncheon to honor my sweet bridesmaids- Kelly, Sadie, Rebecca, Bella, Brighton,
and Linda Claire. Yes 4 out of the 6 are mine and JL’s sisters, but its super convenient
when your sister and husband’s sisters are already your best friends! Some of
my new family was sweet enough to host the luncheon and they did the BEST job. The
decorations were precious and there was a wall full of pictures that made it so
All of the
bridesmaids showed up looking adorable in their Sherri Hill dresses. (Shout-out
to Mrs. Sherri for the dresses!) We went with a really girly floral theme that
kind of went with the flower theme of the wedding, and it made it that much
more fun. Our flower girls were invited too, along with John Luke’s cousins who
sang in the wedding. Plus we had everyone’s mom, our grandmothers, and
great-grandmother Jo. We had quite a crew that we fit into that upstairs
room…not to mention the actual camera “crew” haha.
But it was SO. MUCH.
FUN. Everyone was talking and laughing and telling stories and taking pictures
and there was even some dancing happening with the little girls.
Thank you to everyone
who was involved in that day in any way. It’s a day I’ll never forget.
