Stell and Jon tied the knot on a chilly November day two years ago. We served hot coffee from Starbucks, of course, since that is where they became engaged (see their flash mob proposal here). Guests warmed up by the roaring fire outside while awaiting the ceremony held on Jon’s mother’s front porch. My favorite part of their mingling hour as guests arrived was the guest book. Guests signed puzzle pieces that, once put together, revealed a photo of the bride and groom. It was so fun watching everyone piece the puzzle together!
Having trouble finding the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen? Below are some of my favorite ideas to spoil your maids and men. Make sure to pin your favs!
For your monogram crazy girlfriends, a customized bag is the way to go. Whether that is a tote or a makeup bag, you can get great buys on sites like Marley Lilly and, of course, Etsy. Another great option if your gals love bags is a clutch. One of my favorite clutch designers is Oatmeal and Lace.
Jewelry is another great gift for your maids. Whether it is a bracelet, necklace, or a set of earrings, give them something they can wear on the day of your wedding and in the future for special occasions. Swell Caroline has some great options.
Fellas are often hard to buy for. They don’t care as much about accessories as much as we do. One of my favorite go-to gifts are cuff links. You can have them engraved or coordinate them to their personalities. Another great option for guys with an old soul (or a love for vintage) is a pocket watch. Lastly, any alcohol themed gift is going to be a hit. I love these customized flasks and engraved bourbon barrels.
