PARTY OR FOR GUESTS TO SHOP FOR A BRIDAL SHOWER

by Tami Zachman

I guess I'm going to talk about two different shopping situations for the bride and Bridal Party and the Brides guests at bridal showers.

Let's start with the bride shopping for her bridesmaids, helpers, mother and mother in law to be. In Peoria we have some amazing little local shops and small mall shops.

We have some amazing local shops that are very eclectic and if your looking for
something to add to that note you send to your prospective bridesmaid,
Will you be my bouquet carrying, dress bustling, Champagne drinking, dance floor
dazzling Bachelorette parting bridesmaid?

Here are some great local shops to check out, Relics on Adamsnear McCluggage bridge, the owner Debi is always getting in interesting and different items that you can use as anembellishment when you ask your bridesmaids to be a part of your wedding, and also items you can use for gifts for your bridal party.

The same would be said for Lost and Found in Peoria Heights off of Prospect Road.

Cydís who is KNOWN for her incredible food, but also carries items that would work for
your bridal party.

For small mall shops, depending on your style, you have Moondancer, and Brighton.

Moondancer is for that easy going earthy bride, and Brighton is for the traditional bride.
Both places have beautiful jewelry and accessories for your bridal party gifts whether
they are worn during the ceremony or just a special gift fit for each bridesmaid.

Now for the Bridal showers, I think that any of the above shops would have great ideas for a different type of bridal gift. But.......... donít forget these shops. At Grand Prairie is
Soma, some of the most comfortable, beautiful lingerie) they even have private parties
for groups , called ìGet Gorgeous Partiesî where you receive 10% off of your entire
purchase and help from their famous Fit Stylist experts, this is fun, you can try on the
items and share the experience with your friends.

If you are interested in Somaís Get Gorgeous Parties, call 309-691-2930

Please also don't forget the famous Victoria's Secrets

at Northwoods Mall, where we all know they also have incredible lingerie. Brighton, you would not believe the beautiful jewelry they have that would look gorgeous on a bride or her bridesmaids. From Crystals to Pearls they have a large selection to pick from please give them a call as they do private events for brides also.
There are many great places to shop for bridal party gifts and bridal shower gifts, these are just a few that have caught my eye recently. So if you are looking about for these type of items please visit these great shops.
SO FOR NOW, STAY CALM AND GET MARRIED

SIDE NOTE - THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF MANY SHOPS IN PEORIA, THERE ARE
ALSO THE STORES WHERE THE BRIDE AND GROOM HAVE A BRIDAL
REGISTRY SO DON'T FORGET THESE PLACES TOO!
