Choosing Your Bridesmaids

Choosing bridesmaids

You’re engaged!  Congratulations!  Now let’s get on that wedding party game.

Choosing your bridesmaids can feel overwhelming.  Maybe you have so many girlfriends that you can’t even wrap around your head around who you’ll bridesmaids will be! We’re here to give you a breakdown on how to effectively choose your top girls.  Choosing your bridesmaids is a monumental part for your big day!  After all, these are the girls that will be standing by your side from the beginning up until you’re marrying the love of your life.  They need to be relationship with meaning behind them.  You’re not just choosing someone to fill an empty spot!  So, first step- brainstorming your wishlist of attendants.  Do you have a sister?  Does your fiance have a sister?  It’s common courtesy to include your fiance’s sister, unless she tells you not to!  Now, let’s work down your list of friends.  Who is your oldest friend?  Are y’all still close?  Is she Maid Of Honor status?  If yes- great!  If no- add her on as a bridesmaid!  Any other close family members (cousins, aunts, etc.) Consider bringing them on to stand by you as you say your ‘I Do’s’.  Who was the first person you called when you got engaged?  Was it a newer best friend (co-worker, roommate, etc.) If yes- bridesmaid status!!

 

There really is no limit to how many bridesmaids you can have, but again, keep in mind that this is a huge day for you.  You want the very best and supportive people standing by your side!  Whether it’s two bridesmaids or 10 bridesmaids, make sure that each gal you pick has a meaningful relationship with you!  The girls you don’t choose as bridesmaids can always be readers, house party or ushers!  They all hold important roles as well and would still be considered ‘Wedding Party’ status!

 

Happy Planning!

Hello and welcome to Wednesday!

Days like today remind us how great it is to live in such a beautiful place.  We’re so grateful to be in such a awesome industry with such awesome friends!

As many of ya’ll know, Platinum is expanding and opening up our first branch in Denver, Colorado!  We are so excited and have been busy planning every detail to make this big launch one for the books!  One thing that’s been on our mind is office design!  We’re crazy about awesome office interiors and a good work environment.

We’ve put together a Pinterest board revolving around office design inspiration!  Check it out and enjoy!

'Latvian interior and product designer Anna Butele created a very creative office space for her interior design office in Riga, Latvia' I could easily get loads of work done in a room like this. Very smart, clean and sophisticated. The colours are relaxing too... Love it

Love the idea of a desk facing outward, even in a small space. Also a big gorgeous monitor. Maybe someday, in a different place! :)
