When a bride is planning a wedding, the bridal party is usually an integral part of the planning process. The maid of honor and bridesmaids help the bride pick out her dress, narrow down the guest list, and get her ready for the big day. To show your appreciation for the bridal party, it is always nice to give a special gift to each of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. It is especially nice if that gift is functional! Our expert wedding designer Lindsay created these beautiful bridal party tote bags that each member of your wedding party can use for the big day and beyond. You can even fill their totes with extra goodies to personalize their bags!
There are 10 designs of bridal party tote bags to choose between so that you can include every person in your bridal party. The designs read Bride, Groom, Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid, Best Man, Groomsman, Ring Bearer, Flower Girl, and To Have and To Hold. You can use the To Have and To Hold design to create gift bags for people who are not in the bridal party, or you can apply them to the back side of each of the bridal party tote bags. It is all up to you! To use these designs, begin by downloading the PDF below. To iron the designs onto tote bags, you will need to use the mirrored version. With an inkjet printer, print this file directly onto iron-on transfer paper. We used our Canon PIXMA iP8720 Printer for our totes! Once your design is printed, follow the specific instructions included with your transfer paper to apply the design to tote bags. Make sure that you are using a light color of fabric for your bridal party tote bags, otherwise our charcoal grey designs will not show up correctly! I have added a link in the Shop this Project section to the exact tote bags that we used. You will also find the download in a non-mirrored version below. You can use these in any way that you would like! One option is to create your own To Have and To Hold art print to frame in your first home as a married couple. The PIXMA iP8720 can print up to 13 x 19 sized sheets of paper for larger prints!
