I am so happy to be celebrating one of my dear friends today at her bridal shower! I’ve known Ashley for almost 5 years now and I’m so happy to finally see her and her fiance create their very own happily ever after.
I’m usually a big proponent of the “Please-Buy-From-The-Registry-That’s-What-It’s-There-For” movement, but for anyone that I consider close, I always throw in a little extra something. Sometimes it’s graphic design help for their invitations & paper goods, sometimes it’s help with planning the actual wedding. But for those that don’t need my services, I buy somethin’ fun.
Here’s a guide to some gifts that are perfect for the Bride-to-Be:
#1 – Kate Spade New York Darling Point Mr. and Mrs. Highball Glasses, Set of 2
#2 – Reasons I Want to Marry You Journal
#3 – Hanky Panky ‘I Do’ Swarovski Crystal Original Rise Thong
#4 – Hanky Panky Hipster – Bride Cheeky
#5 – Cardtorial ‘Ever After’ Wood Cover Wedding Guest Book
#6 – Wanderlust + Co “Mrs.” Necklace
#7 – Kate Spade New York ‘say Yes – Mrs’ Stud Earrings
#8 – Wedding Belles Travel Passport Holder – Because being the bride doesn’t stop after the wedding is over… it carries on through the Honeymoon too!
#9 – Kate Spade New York ‘his & Hers’ Crystal Beer Glasses (Set Of 2)
#10 – Mud Pie Chelsea Initial Tote – I received a monogrammed tote at my bridal shower and I used it everyday when I went to the beach on my Honeymoon. It was one of the most practical gifts I received and I absolutely loved having my new last name on it.
#11 – kate spade new york Gold-Tone “Happily Ever After” Bridal Idiom Bangle Bracelet – This bangle also comes in a Bridesmaid’s version that is PERFECT for a bridal party gift!
#12 – In Bloom by Jonquil ‘For the Bride’ Robe
Fun fact: My maiden-name initials came out to be MRS so I always ALWAYS wanted the earrings and/or the necklace because I have always been and now will continue to be a “Mrs.”… but I never did receive them. :'( I might just buy them now myself because… why not? Haha!
