National Recycling Day

National Recycling Day

National Recycling Day is Sunday, Nov. 15, and on this day we are encouraged to purchase recycled products and to recycle more. Why not celebrate with a special gift from Bliss-On! Use the code RECYCLE2020 and get a free reusable Bliss bag with your purchase.

Bliss-On focuses not only on the highest and best quality products for consumers, but also on continuing to create a more sustainable environment for appreciating and preserving the world.

Bliss-On began its production journey by looking for a sustainable swimwear manufacturer. We ended up using Line Aqua, a high-quality swimwear manufacturer who uses environmentally friendly and sustainable practices.

All of our Bliss-On swimwear is created with premium double-lined ECONYL® recycled fabric. This eco-friendly, Italian stretch fabric is known for its consistent color continuity, lightweight texture, and excellent recovery characteristics. It also is resistant to chlorine, sun creams and oils.

Using recycled fabric is not only sustainable for Bliss-On and the environment, but it also gives brides protection from the sun and the highest quality of swimwear for lasting a lifetime.

Let's work together to save the world. If every single person creates a more environmentally conscious lifestyle, National Recycling Day will be an everyday thing. This is good for the planet—and for us.

Gift ideas for your Mother-in-law

Gift ideas for your Mother-in-law

Gift Ideas for your Mother-in-law 

National Mother-in-Law Day is right around the corner (Sunday, Oct. 25) and what better day to honor the special woman who raised the love of your life. No matter how well you know your mother-in-law, giving the perfect gift is always a little bit tricky.  So we did some research and came up with five gift ideas that might make it easier for you.

Whether your mother-in-law loves a sense of adventure or creativity, there must be something that goes beyond her wildest expectations. Here are some experiences that give her the choice of having a little alone time or with another person (or several).

Five gift ideas every mother-in-law will enjoy!

1. Botanical Garden Membership

If nature of any kind is what your mother-in-law enjoys most, then a membership to a botanical garden is the greatest idea. Not only is it something she can do more than one time, depending on the kind of weather, but the gardens change with the season giving her a new perspective each time. Most botanical gardens additionally offer events that are included with the membership, something she can enjoy with your family (or her friends) as well.

2. Spa Day

There is nothing better than a day of pampering. Your mother-in-law can unwind with a relaxing day at the spa. There are many combination options from facial, massage, manicure, and everything else in between. What better way to feel loved is there than being given the chance for pampering oneself? Items used during her spa day are available for purchase. Another added bonus could be gifting her a basket filled full of spa goodies.

3. Ballroom Dancing Lessons

If your mother-in-law is the life of the party, then this is the gift for her! Ballroom dancing classes are a great way for learning new skills while spending time exercising and making new acquaintances. Between the laughter, bonding and dancing, she will come out of the lessons being the life of the next family gathering, and a better ballroom dancer with any partner.

4. Boat Day Away

Whether it’s for the ocean waves or bright sun, the ocean (or lake) is always on the list of best ways to spend a relaxing day. Charter a boat for your mother-in-law’s day and enjoy the endless fun available with your family. If a boat day is what she wants, pair the experience with the Bliss-On Long Embroidered Cover-Up. It features a mesh fabric with delicate edging, giving her beautiful attire for viewing a sunset on the water.  In this robe, she is sure to shine in the photos for the memory book.  

5. Theatre Tickets

Let your mother-in-law explore the theatre scene in your city. Whether you get one performance or an entire season, both high schools and performing art centers have great productions available for the public. Make sure you get a set of tickets so she can bring a friend or spouse to enjoy the evening. 

You are bound to delight your mother-in-law, or future mother-in-law, with any of these gift ideas, which can also be birthday or holiday gifts. Show her how much you care about her and are excited to officially be a part of her family.

We'd love to hear your ideas on thoughtful gifts for a mother-in-law. Let us know by commenting below.

Planning The Ultimate Destination Wedding - 10 Tips Every Bride Needs!

Planning The Ultimate Destination Wedding - 10 Tips Every Bride Needs!

Whether you are headed to a snowcapped mountaintop or a sandy beach oasis, there is something special about getting married at a dream destination. Planning the ultimate destination wedding has its challenges, but we have compiled 10 tips that will make your arrival a smooth ride.

Before flying across the country or abroad to marry the love of your life, follow these important tips to help you achieve an unforgettable wedding destination for saying, “I do.”  

tips for planning a destination wedding.

10 Tips For Planning the Ultimate Destination Wedding:

Tip 1: Envision your Destination

To enjoy your special day to the fullest, envision the type of day you hope to have. If you like to spend long days in the sun, think tropical. If you envisioned something more intimate, think California wine country. It is important to consider how easy it is to travel to your chosen wedding destination, especially for older relatives, and whether the destination has all the resources you might need on your special day.

Tip 2: Research Marriage Requirements

Regulations vary in different countries and even different states. Especially when tying the knot in another country, there are different “residency requirements” where you must reside in the country for a period of time before getting married. Check with your venue, as they probably have steps to facilitate this process.  If this is the case, you may consider a civil ceremony before your wedding day.  Last but certainly not least, get your passport.  If you already have a passport just double check to make sure it doesn't expire anytime soon.  If you don't have one, start the process now so it is one less thing on your future to do list.  

Tip 3: Notify Guests in Advance

If a destination wedding is in your plans, consider telling bridesmaids before you ask them to stand by your side. It will allow them to plan accordingly or decline if unable to attend. Send save-the-date cards at least 6-8 months in advance. It's normal for some guests to be unable to attend your big day. Don't let that discourage you, but giving them enough advance notice will help them plan.

Tip 4: Dress the Part

The destination and its climate are two of the most important things when picking wedding attire. If it’s dry weather or very humid, it is important to consider it all when picking a fabric and even how your hair and makeup will be done. Be considerate of guests, explain the weather and give a heads-up for appropriate shoes. If the floor is difficult to walk in heels on,, you may way to buy heel protectors to keep them from sinking in surfaces. If you are headed to a beach or luxury resort, be sure to browse our new bridal swimwear and accessories line

Tip 5: Hire a Wedding Planner

Although you may want to partake in every step of the planning, it is important to hire a planner for dealing with logistics and last-minute changes that may happen, as they will facilitate things on your behalf. You may want to bring a planner from home, but it is important that they have experience with your chosen destination as they may have to make decisions from miles away. A local planner connected with the venue is another alternative.

Tip 6: Visit the Location

Venues are completely different in person than in pictures, so taking at least one trip to the destination is important for making sure it is what you are dreaming about. Take pictures, and consider back-ups for rain or when the sun goes down if the ceremony is outside. It is quite different to discuss details in person, but if time doesn’t allow it, video calls are just as important. If you decide on a wedding planner, they might know more information they can relay for helping you make decisions. Plus, you get a bonus trip out of if!

Tip 7: Vet Vendors

Read as much information and reviews on vendors as you can, and call their references. If your wedding planner is from the destination, they might have referrals for some local talent as you’re going to need caterers, florists and photographers. You may also bring this talent from your hometown, but it is important to consider their transportation and lodging.

Tip 8: Avoid Busy Destinations and Seasons

If your wedding destination is a busy one, consider other events that may happen in your venue throughout the time you will be there. For a more intimate time, peak season and school vacation periods may be times to avoid.

Tip 9: Wedding Day Transportation

If guests are staying in a separate hotel or if the venue is not located within the hotel, you may want to set up a shuttle service for guests traveling to and from the wedding. This makes it easier on guests for getting around a destination they are not familiar with and eliminates parking issues for multiple cars.

Tip 10: Give Guests the Inside Scoop

Communicating as much information as you can to wedding guests is important, especially for those coming from out of town. If the budget allows, be hospitable with welcome boxes and include maps, activities to do in town, and maybe even the itinerary of the wedding. Showcasing what to do in the area may allow guests to discover something different in a city they have not visited before.

These tips are the perfect start to the destination wedding of your dreams. If you’re looking for the perfect getaway destination for your bachelorette weekend or honeymoon retreat, check out our previous blog post on 10 relaxing spa resorts.

The ultimate blend of beach fun and luxurious fun is in The Hamptons of Long Island, New York. Made up of a cluster of hamlets and villages on Long Island's South Fork, The Hamptons has long been a summer playground for the rich and famous but the lovely beaches, surfing and fishing attract the not so famous, too.

Miami is known to be a melting pot filled with different cultures, food, and music. There are many firsts to do in Miami, like spending the day on a boat with a mimosa-filled brunch. There is nothing better than beachfront fun. Don’t forget the night scene is never ending so bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to spend your night dancing away.

3. Santa Monica, California

Although Santa Monica is best known for the beautiful Santa Monica pier and the local attractions, there are many wellness-focused activities to be done as well. Enjoy the poolside to relax and spend quality time with your bridesmaids. The restaurants here are known for their amazing food and over-the-top drinks.  The beach is a great place to soak in the sun and enjoy some yoga, we can feel ourselves relaxing just thinking about it.  

4. Napa Valley, California


If you’re dreaming of a more relaxed bachelorette party, then Napa Valley is the place for you. Visit wine country if you and your bridesmaids want to become wine connoisseurs or simply taken in the countryside. There are wine tours through different vineyards for the ultimate bachelorette experience. This is the place for a relaxing escape with gorgeous views, wonderul wines and most importantly your best friends by your side.

5. San Juan, Puerto Rico

The Caribbean sun is unmatched, and you don’t have to leave the United States to enjoy it. San Juan, Puerto Rico, is equally filled with sunshine and parties. The tropical cocktails make it the perfect destination for a bachelorette spot, and the sea breeze a place to rejuvenate. It is not only known for its blue beaches but also its picturesque rainforest, mountains, and soothing water.

6. New York City, New York

The city that never sleeps is on this list for many reasons. If you’re looking for an electric and modern sight for you and your bridesmaids, NYC is the place to be. While it’s filled with fabulous lights in the city, it is also filled with history and culture.You and your ladies can tour the city, see a broadway show and dine at the best restaurants in the world.  

7. New Orleans, Louisiana

There is something extraordinarily rich about everything that New Orleans offers, from fried beignets to jazz-filled streets. Enjoy the magic in the historic French Quarter filled with modern fun and stunning architecture for the best Instagram pictures. For the more adventurous, take a walking ghost tour, or maybe a tour of the cemetery and visit voodoo queen Marie Laveau's grave!

They have been by your side through the good times, the not-so-great breakups, and moments of pure joy. Best friends, sisters, and now bridesmaids! Show your bridesmaids just how special they are by spoiling them a little! Who doesn’t love to be spoiled? 

You’ve spent your life forming bonds with these special ladies that would one day stand by your side on your big day. Your wedding day bliss will be everything you imagined and more because of these lovely ladies.

Throwing you that unforgettable bachelorette party, showering you with gifts—they have been there every step of the way to your wedding day! Don’t forget to show them just how much you appreciate them. Here are a few ideas on how you can express to your bridesmaids just how special they are!

5 Ways to Spoil Your Bridal Party:

1. Ask them to be a bridesmaid in a unique way – Putting together a perfect bridesmaid proposal box is the first step, making your bridesmaids feel special and excited about being a part of your big day. Whether by incorporating personalized stem-less wine glasses, customized robes, or a confetti popper just for fun, you can’t go wrong with a box full of your bridesmaids' favorite things. 

2. Give each bridesmaid a special gift – Odds are your ladies planned you an epic bachelorette night out or maybe even a getaway! Plan to surprise them with a special gift upon arrival. Customize it to the weekend and if you are beachside or plan on hitting up the spa, consider giving them all matching Bliss-On Sarongs for the spa or hanging out poolside. Matching bachelorettes makes for some great insta-worthy moments!

3. Plan a relaxing spa day – Who doesn’t enjoy a day of pampering and relaxation, especially with all the stress of wedding planning? A spa day is an easy and fun way of bonding with your bride tribe, while also enjoying that mani-pedi, facial, and some bubbly. Most spas offer exclusive bridal party packages and let’s be honest, no one can turn down a day of being pampered. 

4. Beach Trip! Make sure to plan your bachelorette party beach or poolside! That way you can all relax on the beach or poolside and have some fun in the sun. Make it extra special and surprise them with matching cover-ups. Bliss-On lace cover-ups don’t have to just be for the bride! However, if you want to stand out, grab yourself the Anna paired with the Blooms Bridal Belts and our Long Beautifully Scalloped Lace Bridal Cover-up. Then you can pick a shorter lace coverup for them, or grab them matching ones in a different color than yours.
5. Host a "Let’s be Friends" brunch – This one is for the entire bridal party! Plan a brunch for the entire bridal party for getting to know each other. Create even more wedding memories over mimosas and pancakes. This is a great way for the wedding party to get to know each other if they don’t already, or catching up if they do.

Getting married goes beyond the "I Do’s" and the preparation. Pampering, and celebrations before and after are all part of the lasting memories. Make sure your leading ladies know how much you appreciate their love and support. Like we said, who doesn’t love being spoiled a little?
