3 Fabulous Gift Ideas for your Bridal Party

Wondering what to get the lovely ladies that will be standing by your side on your wedding day? I want to share & introduce you to one of my new vendor friends, Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique that can help you find the perfect gift for your gals.

Here are a couple of ideas to start the search:

Dazzling Duo

As I mentioned, they are new friend as I always love meeting new vendors & sharing them with our clients, so when they graciously asked me to pick a sample of my very own to have my name & initials on it, I of course said yes, please!

I was very impressed with the packaging box. It had my name beautifully scripted on the front then when I opened it to see the sparkly tumbler {who doesn’t love a little sparkle with their favorite beverage} and comfy floral robe both initialed with the first letter of my name. I was in heaven with all the prettiness!

Being that purple & silver are my favorite colors, I chose those for both the robe & vinyl colors. You can choose from an array of colors they have to offer that fits your style & personality. I love using the tumbler with my morning to-go ice coffee & the lovely box is sitting pretty in my office. I’m waiting for the warmer weather to sport my robe!

Now, onto a few others that I thought would be great ideas.

Vintage Leather Journal

This would be the perfect gift for the writer in your life. What’s impressive about this journal is that it can be personalized on both sides with the specific details of your bridesmaid {or anyone else for that matter} and comes in a beautifully crafted wooden box.

Precious Pearl

Want something simple to go with their dress and that they can have forever to remember the day? This necklace just may be your answer!

The delicate pearl necklace comes with an engraved initial pendant that they will treasure for years to come.

They have so many other options that you can choose from based on the personalities of your gals! Hope this helps in giving you some inspiration for your gals!

5 Creative Ways To Put More “YOU” Into Your Wedding

Happy Tuesday!

There’s more snow on the way for New England today and I’m a rare one since I’m loving it all! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend with your sweetie! Did you get engaged?! Woo Hoo…Congrats!

Let the planning begin and here are a few tips to put a little “YOU” into your wedding.

1. Table Names
A great way to make your tables stand out from the rest is to change the traditional table numbers to something that is uniquely yours. For example, are you a fan of reading, use your favorite book titles and/or authors. Or, if you both like to travel, how about the different places you’ve been too? Are you a wine lover, use the many different types of wines. 
Check out this image from The Mountain Millers Dream Wedding that shows a special place this couple visited.

Or, how about these for the book lover…

2. Shoes
Nowadays, it’s all about the shoes! And, what a fabulous way to change it up. Your shoes could be you’re wedding colors instead of matching the white/ivory of your dress. For example, if your favorite color is purple & you’re wedding colors happen to be plum or eggplant, than picture a pair of gorgeous purple shoes peaking out from under your pretty dress!  

Thanks to my friends over at Black Thumb Studio for the picture of my pretty shoes.

Need your ‘something blue’ that everyone can see. Check out this stunning image from Milton Gil Photography. {FYI…there is music on this website, so turn your volume down if your at work.}

I couldn’t resist this one from Niki Rossi Photography. I LOVE the different colored shoes and the flowers matching them!

If heels aren’t your thing, wear sneakers, flip flops or even cowboy boots! The sky is the limit!

3. Centerpieces

Flowers are definitely the most popular centerpieces, but if you don’t want flowers to be the main focus of the table, add something that you both love. Going back to the suggestion of book titles/authors being your table names, you could have old books as your centerpiece with candles/tea lights surrounding them. To add a little more flair, you could add a couple of bud vases {tall or short} in between the candles/tea lights.

If you’re a sports fan, especially a Boston one, use some memorabilia from any of the 4 Boston teams! Check out this one from Marrero Events for our Boston Red Sox!

4. Music
Music is certainly a great way to personalize your wedding and not just with your ceremony or first dance. When you’re being introduced into your reception for the first time, have something that represents you both. For example, one of my clients’ families both came from New York, the bride’s grandmother was a huge Sinatra fan, so to pay tribute to both their backgrounds and her grandmother, they entered into the reception with “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra. Are you huge Patriots fan? “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff would be right up your alley!
5. Signature Cocktail or Coffee Blend
Last, and definitely not the least, is to have a signature cocktail or coffee blend designed specifically for you’re wedding day. For your signature cocktail, take you’re wedding colors, a favorite or seasonal drink that flows or resembles your overall theme.

Thanks to Daisies & Pearls Merry Making for this great idea.

If you’re not a cocktail kind of person, but love coffee or tea, create a coffee or tea blend {yes, there is a place that does just that…The Cozy Tea Cart!} that is uniquely yours.

I hope these tips gave you some inspiration on how to add a little more “YOU” into you’re wedding.

Handpainted Glasses by Danni

Happy Monday!

I hope all the Dad’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day yesterday, I know I sure did with my dad & awesome father in law!

Anyway, on to some of the exciting things I want to share with you. Who doesn’t love something handmade or hand painted? I certainly do, since I can’t draw or paint to save my life! I have no problem admitting that I’m envious of the people who can do either.

So, when my friend/old job contact, Jocelyn told me about her sister in law, Danielle, I knew I had to meet her. After the virtual intro, I set up a meeting with Danielle to discuss how we can work together to get her talents into the wedding world. We met at my favorite Massachusetts/New Hampshire Starbucks to chat. After chatting & enjoying a yummy Double Chocolate Chip frappuccino, I decided to have her make me a few different types of glasses. That way, when my clients are looking for unique, personalized gifts, so I can immediately show these beauties to them.

What I forgot was, I had her make me a wine glass with my logo on it….

She literally captured all the details of my logo! I was beyond excited when I saw it and I can’t wait to have my first glass of wine in it! 🙂

Sorry, was so excited about it, that I couldn’t wait to share it! Now, check out the others she created…

Of course, I had to have her create one for my other favorite kind of cocktail…

And, I couldn’t forget about those handsome guys & beer drinkers….

Isn’t her talent amazing! Want her to create something beautiful for you’re wedding? Send her an email here to get something unique made! Just don’t forget to tell her I sent you!
~Cheers!
