How to Be the Most
Prepared Bridesmaid in the
Wedding Party

Although late spring and early summer are typically dubbed as wedding season, fall continues to be a popular season for both indoor and outdoor nuptials. Whether you’re attending as a guest or gearing up for your bridesmaid debut, it’s likely you have an autumn ceremony on the calendar in the next few weeks.

Our Wholesale Sales Coordinator (and current Miss Northeast Indiana, nbd) Madi is one of the most organized people we know, so it’s no surprise she shines as a bridesmaid. We chatted with Madi to get her top tips for wedding weekend and how to be the most prepared bridesmaid in the bridal party.

favorite travel bag: iconic convertible travel bag


“Every bridesmaid needs a bridal emergency kit — in here I’ll put jewelry, band-aids, tissues, hair-ties, bobby pins, anything you might need last minute on the big day.”


“The Iconic Blush and Brush Case is my favorite because I can store my make-up, brushes and hair supplies.”



“My favorite part of the Iconic Convertible Garment Bag is that is actually converts into a duffel. I can store all of my clothes [in the zippered compartment below] and they don’t get wrinkled!”


“We all know we’re not going to be wearing heels during the reception, so you pack your flats in [the Ditty Bag], tighten the string and you’re ready to go!”
