We all know Victoria Secret is the queen bee when it comes to lingerie.  They definitely do things right!  However, their bridal collection isn’t very extensive, which leaves a lot of possible repeat gifts for that bride to be in your life.  It is fun to receive lingerie as a bridal gift and it is fun to give lingerie.  Some of us may feel intimidated trying to find lingerie stores with the fear of some of them being more geared towards a lady making money off of wearing lingerie.  Fear no more, this is a go to guide in finding lingerie – both locally and on the inter web!

For the Local Lady:

-Meme’s Foundation: http://www.memesfoundations.com/

Deb has made Meme’s a truly special place to find the right undergarment for all different occasions.  You don’t feel lost in overflowing drawers filled with lace, silk and attachments, but instead get a personal customized experience when you walk in the door.  When shopping for your bride to be you may be surprised to find something for yourself as well.  Bras found at Meme’s are unlike any other.  You will find the perfect fit for you and the bride.  Whether you want to show off your wild side or sweet side Meme’s is sure to have just what you are seeking.  Feel free to take a sneak peek at their bridal collection on their website.  There is a separate section dedicated just for the lady in white!

For the Hosting Lady:

-Scotta Intimates: http://www.scottaintimates.com/

This is your go to lingerie stop if you would like to host a lingerie party for any occasion (like a bachelorette party I mentioned in my precious article). http://www.scottaintimates.net/party/ Like other parties it is a great way to see the products in person, learn from an expert and some great perks!  The best news is that they have a great collection of bridal lingerie as well!  http://www.scottaintimates.com/bridal-lingerie/

For the Lacy Racy Lady:

-Yandy: http://www.yandy.com/bridal_lingerie.asp

Lacy, lacy, lacy and racy.  Thinking you or the bride in your life may need a little help to step out of the comfort zone?  Then yandy is your place to get some ideas.  The little numbers on their site are sure to make someone feel special.  A little peek-a-boo here and there may be the best thing that ever happened in your life or at least during someone’s wedding night!

For the Lady with $$$ Taste:

-Journelle: http://www.journelle.com/bridal

Definitely the place to find lingerie at a higher price, they have the concept of wearing something nice every day.  This is the idea to make woman feel lovely inside and out, even if the outside world cannot see it, the woman can feel it!  At their website you can find a great collection of lingerie specifically for the bride as well!  If she has expensive taste and you can afford to spend a lot of money, then this is your place to shop!

Lingerie is a great way to feel sexy and confident.  It can also be a great way to push the boundaries and go beyond your comfort zone.  With this new lingerie you may be acquiring or giving, there are other great uses for it too!  Beauty sessions are a great way to push some boundaries and really give praise to yourself.  It is important, as woman, to care for ourselves and treat ourselves.  Beauty sessions are a great way to do this, but not just for you, the end result can be a great wedding gift for your partner to be by showing off your assets in some lingerie!

“Oh yes, it’s ladies night and the feelings right. Oh yes it’s ladies night…Oh what a night.” That’s right ladies – tonight is your night. It is your night to celebrate the bride and all of her closest lady friends! Although I probably cannot say there will be an appearance by Kool and the Gang to get the party started. (It is probably for the best anyway – ha). However there are many options to jump-start your wedding adventures! Typing in ‘Bachelorette Parties in Grand Rapids’, definitely isn’t helpful at all. That is why I did some digging and came up with a list that I think everyone can like something from!

1. ‘Vegas’ Style

-Casinos are in close enough proximity that you could make a night out of it, or even stay at one for the weekend. Gambling, entertainment and food a plenty can be found at Michigan casinos. This can be a great way to keep everyone in one place to party until the wee hours of the morning!

2. The Sophisticated Lady

-Michigan is full of wineries, almost too many to choose from. Wherever you live, there is most likely a winery within a short drive if you want to check one out for the day. Or there are many options to take a weekend getaway and visit many wineries within close proximity to one another. To really let loose, check out a car service or tour bus to do the driving for your group!

-The same can be said for visiting breweries, if you like a little more hops in your drink than grapes. Breweries are popping up everywhere with websites dedicated to help you figure out some great beer paths to follow as well as designated drivers too!

3. The Artsy Fartsy

-Group painting classes are becoming more and more popular. They are a great way to do something together with your friends, as well as bring home a memory from the event. Take it up a notch and see if you can BYOB. Some of the events even have their own wine to share with the participants.

4. Spicing It Up!

-Grab your girls and head over to Flirt Fitness. They offer private parties that can come with pole dancing lessons, lap dances, strip teases or a combination of all.

-A great way to finish a pole dancing party is to host a party with all the great outfits to wear with your news moves you just learned. Scotta Intimates is a lingerie brand that allows you to host a party (more details to come next month). Take it a step further and add some Pure Romance toys into the mix to really take care of all assets of the wedding night!

5. The Lavender Nose

-Every woman, whether she has had one or not, loves a massage, a facial, a sugar scrub, and relaxation. A great way to celebrate the bride and her best ladies is a trip the spa. This can also be a great way for the bride, her maid or honor, her mother and mother to be, as an extra special thank you with memories or just being together and enjoying one another.41015 102 6 Ideas For Your Next Bachelorette Party

6. The Laid Back Lady

-Grab your girls and have a night in with movies, games, drinks and food.

-Get dropped off in an area where there are many different bars to choose from that you can hop around to (Downtown, East town, Westside, etc)

-A picnic in the park.

-And any other ideas the bride or the bridal party may have. Just remember the day is about celebration and enjoying your best gals!

If there is one thing I’ve learned to love, that’s falling in love with long, voluptuous, sexy and sometimes, drag queen eyelashes.  That courtship began when a dear friend of mine from Artistic Enhancements bound those fantastic things to my eyeballs.  Not only does having long lashes look great in photos, but people notice and you get great compliments for looking pretty.  And who doesn’t love getting compliments for looking pretty? What I love about having eyelash extensions is that it’s low maintenance beauty.  Sure, you have to keep up with them in that you will have to refill them once or twice a month, which is no different than keeping up with your manicure.  What I mean is, you don’ have to put on a lot of makeup, or even wear any at all, and it looks like you just rolled yourself right out of bed looking amazing.

I have worked with Tara and Alexis at Artistic Enhancements over the years  and they are both skilled and talented ladies when it comes to eyelashes, airbrushing, and other aesthetics.  They will be displaying a booth at this year’s Women’s Expo at the Devos Place this month from the 8th-10th.  Be sure to come down and say hi!  And be sure to also Like them on Facebook.
