When our pal Meredith (of Regas New York –and Thread Said–fame) told us about her friends’ company Navy & Lavender, we just had to share with you. Why, you ask? Well, you know how, when attending an out-of-town wedding, by the time you finally arrive at the hotel, you are a bit tired, a bit hungry, a bit disoriented? And you know how there is but one thing that can put you fully back on the excited-for-the-wedding track? Yes, folks, we are taking about The Welcome Bag here. We know we aren’t the only ones who immediately tear into the bag to see what kind of goodies lay ahead for us, both in the bag itself and the weekend ahead.
That said, we always wondered how, with everything else going on, the bride and groom manage to throw this bag together. It is probably one of the more fun things on the wedding to-do list, but definitely not as important or necessary as, say, choosing your flowers or finding the perfect band. And that, my friends, is why we needed to share Navy & Lavender with you: The girls over there will not only put together these bags for you, but they will do it well, customizing each and every ‘Welcome Tote‘ to fit the wedding locale, theme and guest.
So, brides-to-be, we think you should consider this as one thing checked off that long to-do list of yours.
