Four Threads Shop - Best Sellers

Fashion, LifestyleVeronica Arrieta7 Comments

I haven't really talked about the Four Threads Shop since I launched at the end of July, so I wanted to give you an update. I'm so proud to say that in just 3 short months I've sold out four times and keep having to restock (can I get an amen!!). Y'all have no idea how much of an answered prayer this is, and couldn't have done any of it without your support. I've learned so much by opening this shop - everything from getting the inventory, shipping, pricing items, margins, etc. I purchase all the inventory and then ship it out from our house, so a big thanks to my husband for not going nuts with all this stuff laying around our house 24/7! 

I designed the tees, mugs, and hand-make each gold sequin hanger to order. I want to be as transparent with you so wanted to share the items that are killing it and the some that haven't does as well.

Unbeknownst to me, the Wifey and Hubby Mugs haven't done as well as I predicted, which was (and still is) super shocking to me. I designed and bought them thinking they would be the first to go, but boy was I wrong! Don't get me wrong, they are selling but slowly. 

The best sellers are the Chloe Earrings, Lily Tear Drop Earrings, Wifey Tees and Gold Sequins Hangers. Like really...I can't seem to keep these on the shelves. I keep having to restock, which is so incredible! I've realized that a lot of brides are buying the jewelry in bulk for their bridesmaids, which is awesome!

Thank you again for all of your support - it literally means the world to me. If you have any questions, please email me (veronica@thefourthreads.com) or leave a comment below.  

6 Things No One Tells You About Your Wedding

6 Things No One Tells You About Your Wedding Day | Four Threads

You've put so much thought into every detail when planning your wedding -- from the exact flowers to the chargers on the table. But even the most organized weddings have something that goes wrong. Here are six things that no one tells you about your wedding. 

1. Someone close to you will let you down....whether it's a family member, bridesmaid, or close friend. My advice to you is to talk through it, don't let it ruin any friendships or relationships. You have to remember that your emotions are running really high during this time, and you don't want to say or do anything that you'll later regret. 

2. Someone will have a conflict and have to cancel a week (or less) before the big day. Yes, it sucks and is super annoying because your seating arrangements are finalized, but no one will notice if their table is missing two people. There's no point giving yourself a bigger headache of rearranging seating at this point -- just let is go! 

3. You probably won't eat much of the yummy food that you've been picking out for months. So make sure you stuff your face during your caterer tasting (just kidding...well kinda!!). Not only will your guests will be coming up to congratulate you both during dinner, but you will want to walk around and see everyone. I recommend telling your caterer to seat and feed you a little before your guests. For example, during our wedding the staff came and tapped us on the shoulder to let us know that each meal was coming and for us to sit down. Lucky for us we were able to get a few bites in without being interrupted. 

4. Things will go wrong...but no one else will know besides you. The florist might show up with flowers different that you discussed, your photographer might be late, and you may end up pinning your dress because the bustle broke. But that is all OK. These are all the little things that don't matter -- what matters is this new life you're celebrating with your now husband, family and friends.

5. Have a designated person to hold your envelopes. This may sound strange and I hate to even say this, but moral of the story is you have gifts (aka: money) floating around on your wedding day in envelopes. And you don't necessarily know everyone running around to make your day special. Have a family member or someone you trust be the envelope holder. For our wedding, we had a custom made money bag that a family member latched onto all night! 

6. Post wedding blues are real. Don't let anyone tell you they aren't. The day after your wedding is still happy time, but you'll feel a sense of sadness because all the excitement is over. And I would be lying if I told you that months down the road it would all be OK, because seeing all the weddings on social media make me want to relive the whole thing over and over again (Or maybe it's just me?!?).

Do you have any other tips that no one tells you about your wedding day? I'd love to read them in the comments below.

Everyone tells you that your wedding day is the best days of your life; but are they saying that it's all downhill from there? Don't get me wrong, my wedding day was an amazing day that I'll cherish forever. But once the pretty white dress is off and the flowers go away...the reality of marriage starts to sink in. 

I didn't think I could love him (my husband) more that I did on our wedding day. I was wrong. It's hasn't even been a full year yet and I fall more and more in love with him.

So to a bride on her wedding day, I would say cherish every second - take a step back with your now husband and take in everything you've been planning for so long. Don't worry about the details because they don't matter. And know that the love and commitment you've made to each other will only grow stronger.
