It’s happening. The woman who is my cousin, my friend, and Avery’s godmother is getting hitched next year. She was the person behind the dessert bar for Avery’s dedication and baby shower. She is incredibly talented and is one of the most hardworking people I know. Avery and I happily joined her wedding venue shopping in Augora Hills.
When you drive into the hills, it’s like you’ve entered Santa Barbara wine country. It’s luscious, green, and wonderfully breezy. I strapped Avery into her favorite carrier and we started to walk around the premises. It didn’t take long for her to say, “This is the one!” We were escorted to the bridal suite, where we sat down and begin to work through our somewhat absurd list of 100 questions.
The amateur photographer in me checked out every window in the bridal suite. The gorgeous sunlight peeking through was blissful – now I just need to lose 25lbs before this wedding!
After touring the venue, we decided to head to Los Agaves Mexican Grill for a quick bite to eat. When we arrived at the table, I was greeted by a large wine box with a wine colored ribbon tied around it. After ordering delicious fajitas and a margarita, I sat down with Avery and caved in to my curiosity of what was in the box. I soon discovered a gorgeous bottle of wine with a custom-made tag that said, “Yvette, will you be my bridesmaid?” Of course I said yes! Next to the wine was a lovely nail polish, a custom stemless glass with my name on it, and paint chips in the colors of the wedding.
Ladies, there is no better way than to say, “Will you be bridesmaid?” than with a bottle of wine. Am I right?! These wine boxes are the perfect gift to add some love and uniqueness to your request for bridesmaids! Next on my list is to start planning the most epic bridal shower EVER. More details to come, of course!
