What to Pack in your Carry-On Bag

Taking a vacation soon or within the next few months? If that’s the case, then it’s time to start planning your packing situation! Sure, depending on the estimated duration of your trip, you’ll want to pack accordingly — especially items that you’ll need to have a comfortable vacation! Not sure what that entails? Here are some carry-on essentials you’ll need:

Cell Phone Charger

One of the most essential items to bring with you is your cell phone charger. Of course, you could always purchase one in the hotel lobby — and if you’re lucky, your room will have one — but sometimes that’s not always the case.

When doing this, it’s important to bring two chargers, if you can. Indeed, one will do — but if you happen to lose it (or leave it behind), then you’ll always have another charger for backup. If you’re not looking to break the bank, then you can purchase phone chargers at your local dollar store for a reasonable price!

Medication Essentials

Another big item that most travelers forget to bring are medications. From a headache-relieving medication to indigestion pills, you should bring what you need for those “just in case” moments. Indeed, you don’t want to bring the entire bottle with you — so it would be best to either purchase some travel-sized versions or make your own travel case.

To create a travel case for your medication, you’ll want to get a waterproof container, preferably something with a lid. This will not only be the best way to keep your pills safe, but it will keep them all in one place — instead of rolling around in your bag.

A Toothbrush

Curious as to what is the most forgotten item in a traveler’s bags? Ah, yes: a toothbrush! The most essential of hygiene items is usually the first one to not make the list of packing essentials, unintentionally. If you’re looking for the best way not to forget this staple, then you can always purchase one a backup brush at the airport.

If you’re not sure where you can find one at the airport, ask around! Typically, most airports have an essentials store  — you know, for those that forgot to bring their essentials with them (hello, toothbrush). Think that you’ll forget that toothbrush? You can certainly call the front desk at your hotel, asking for them to place one in your room, before your arrival!

How to Find Bridesmaid Dresses for Cheap

Fact: sometimes the quest to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses can be daunting. Sure, you could pick exactly what you’d like — but then the price tag may be too big for one gown. However, don’t lose hope: there are many affordable (and beautiful) options for bridesmaids dresses!

Check Clearance

One of the most overlooked sections at any dress shop is the clearance section. Believe it or not, it’s possible to find some incredible gowns at a fraction of the cost. If you’re lucky, sometimes you can find more than one of the same dress, in different sizes, for one bulk price (buying them altogether).

Change it Up

Another way to score one of the best deals on your bridesmaid gowns is to go for something nontraditional. Of course, you can still have your bridesmaids in dresses — but you can even opt for skirts, or even suits if you’re set on changing up the “wedding game.” Not only will this make your wedding incredibly unique, but it will be the best one your friends will ever attend!

Opt for an Old Dress

Believe it or not, another fabulous way to score a deal on bridesmaid dresses is to use something that all of your gals have: a simple black dress! No matter what the style of the dress may be, this will be the perfect way to let your ladies wear something they feel comfortable wearing while looking fabulous on the big day! You’ll love the contrast of the different dresses as your gals walk down the aisle!

Ask for a Budget

Still stuck on finding the best dresses for your ladies? Just ask them how much they’re willing to spend! When doing this, it will give you a specific budget to work with — which will make your dress hunt much more simplistic, rather than complicated. Additionally, you might be able to find some gorgeous gowns online for a great price to accommodate all budgets!

Go Thrifting

Seeking some unique, beautiful gowns for a fraction of the price? Try visiting a thrift store! Not only will this be one of the best ways to find dresses that will work for your ladies, but you’ll be surprised at the stunning vintage finds that you’ll discover!

Looking for beautiful bridesmaids dresses for your favorite ladies? Stop by our Village Bridal & Boutique (attached to Dynasty Limousine) today! You’ll be amazed at the incredible gowns you can find, at wonderful prices!

How to Ask Someone to be Your Bridesmaid

When it comes to asking one of your girlfriends to be your bridesmaid, the task can seem a bit overwhelming at times. Of course, you could ask them to be by your side on the big day — but that’s not as fun as giving them a gift or making a bridesmaid proposal! Need some inspiration? Here are some ways to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids on your wedding day:

Send a “Survival Kit”

One of the best ways to ask your friend to be your bridesmaid is to send her a care package or “survival kit” for the big day. Believe it or not, this will be one the best, yet personalized ways to ask. Of course, the kit doesn’t have to be extravagant — but it can be if you’d like it to.

To start, get a plain cardboard box that’s perfect for shipping. You don’t want to give away any hints before they open the package. Therefore plain will work best. From there, you can place either some packing peanuts or tissue paper confetti inside. Next, put some fun “essentials” in there for the big day, such as wine bottle opener and possibly a personalized wine glass, too.

Once that’s complete, you can place a card on top, asking the big question. Your gal pal will be so thrilled when she receives this fun, bridesmaid proposal at her front door (and we guarantee she’ll say yes)!

Host a Dinner Party

Another way to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids is to host a dinner party. Whether it’s in your home or you go out to a restaurant, the possibilities are endless and entirely up to you! Once everyone arrives, you can start with drinks, followed by appetizers. In between the “apps” and main course, that’s when you can break the news that you want everyone to be your bridesmaid!

If you’re looking to go the extra step, then you can get a little present for each, place it in a box under their chair and ask them to all open these “mysterious” gifts all at once. The look on their faces will be priceless — and the experience will be cherished for the years to come!

Record a Video

Notice that baby gender reveal parties are a big hit across social media? Take a note from these grand parties and record a video, naming those who will be your bridesmaids! Don’t be afraid to get creative — because the possibilities are utterly endless!

If you’re looking for the best idea, you can record yourself asking your friends and create a video montage of the moments! It will surely be a treasured keepsake, for sure!
