There's a lot of things on Pinterest that I fell in love with, but knew were made by a professional. Sure they're on Pinterest, but, as we've discussed before, not everything on Pinterest was done by the person who pinned it. So don't let it intimidate you. Don't feel like you have to DIY your entire wedding. That's ridiculous and time consuming and will make you absolutely hate the wedding planning process.
But the things you can do, absolutely do them yourself. Like these bridesmaid manicure gift bags that I put together in a grand total of 45 seconds (and that includes snapping two photos too).
DIY Bridesmaid Manicure Gift Bags
What You'll Need:
- Colored nail polish
- Clear nail polish
- Nail file
- Trial-size nail polish remover
- Cotton balls
- Organza bag
- Trial-size body lotion
What You'll Do:
- Put everything in the bag. Close it.
That's it. One step. It's crazy how simple this is. You really could go crazy and design personalized labels for the lotion and nail polish remover, but I don't really recommend it. The point of this is that it looks awesome and is quick and easy. Anything you do to complicate it will take away from it being quick and easy.
You could, however, spend a little time picking the polish. You could either buy the color that you would like the girls to wear (which, honestly, sounds a little too bridezilla-y to me) or you could buy the color that matches the bridesmaids' dresses. It'll be a nice way to remember the wedding and their dress every time they wear the polish.
