Wedding Wednesday ~ The Perfect Gift for Your Bridesmaids

A New York Love Affair

Finding the perfect gift for your bridesmaids can be harder than it seems. I actually spent weeks hemming and hawing about what to get my gals. At one point I probably had ten tabs open with items from several different sites, in hopes of putting together a fantastic and meaningful gift.

Logistics was where things got complicated for me. I was fully preparing to ship a bunch of little items from a number of different vendors to my mom’s house, then wrap everything in a presentable way a few days before the wedding. Of course, if there were any issues there wouldn’t be time to rectify them, and considering how much else there was to do that week, it was not a great plan…

Then, I had a moment of clarity while scrolling through my Instagram feed. What if I opted for a beautifully designed, all-in-one gift box? I immediately reached out to Marigold & Grey about their design services.

Marigold & Grey was a dream to work with. They have a number of pre-designed gifts for every occasion, and also offer a custom gift design service. I fell in love with their pre-designed “Thank You For Being My Bridesmaid” gift, but was actually able to customize it a little bit for my ‘maids. What I loved about this particular gift box, was that it included a mix of wedding day essentials + goodies to enjoy later.

Matching robes for all the ladies to get ready in was an absolute must. I’ve always been a fan of Plum Pretty Sugar’s dreamy patterns and was so excited to see them as part of the gift box. I opted for their soft and feminine “Oracle” pattern, made of the softest material. It made for the most adorable “getting ready” photos, and will hopefully be a piece they can wear around the house.

In addition to the gift box, I wanted to include a pair of earrings for everyone to wear on the big day. I chose a single crystal drop earring from Kate Spade, something simple and classic that they can hopefully wear again!

For a final personal touch, I hand-wrote notes to each and every one of them. These women are incredible individuals, and it meant so much to me that they were part of such a special day in my life. I’m thankful each and every day for their love and support, and feel lucky to call them friends (and family)!
