If I didn’t know better, I’d say the traditional second anniversary gift (cotton) was chosen with Southerners in mind! There are SO many ways to get creative with this gift suggestion, and today we’re sharing a few of our favorites below…

A cozy blanket for cuddling on the sofa. We love this heirloom-quality one from Brahms Mount.
A painting from a Southern artist. Canvases are made from cotton! A few of our favorite Southerners: Blakely Made, Sally King Benedict, Michelle Armas, and Britt Bass Turner.
A bow tie in a spring color. Our favorites are from our collection with High Cotton Ties.
A cotton boll wreath. For your front door or kitchen!
Cotton notecards. With or without monogram – your choice! (But we still think it’s fun to get excited about seeing your new-ish last name :))
A new sheet set for your bed. Go with a fun pattern like the gems from Southern favorite Biscuit!
His and hers aprons. We love the classic, understated styles from Heirloomed.

What do you think, friends? Any suggestions to add to our list? I’d love to hear!!

Celebrating your first wedding anniversary? See our gift suggestions here!

    I really like the idea of a painting. I’ve found some artists that will make a collage painting from pictures of details of your wedding. It’s a nice alternative if portraits aren’t your style.

    A nice monogrammed robe (maybe coordinating his and hers) is also a nice splurge, for all those Sunday mornings spent lounging around.

After 7+ years of writing about, dreaming about, and scheming about Southern weddings, they still don’t get old to me! I’m constantly energized by the thoughtful, creative ways y’all incorporate your stories and what matters most to you into your wedding day details, and by our vendor community, who is always finding new ways to put unique twists on Southern staples. This wedding inspiration by The Willetts and Brianne McMullan is a perfect example. My favorite part? The subtle Atlanta nods they mixed into their vibrant Palm Beach meets Regency aesthetic. Lots of inspiration to pull from here for spring, summer, and even winter weddings!

From the team: We are so excited to share this beautiful styled shoot, showcasing a glam, colorful, and truly Southern style! An incredible team of vendors came together to showcase South Florida, Palm Beach infused details. Our inspiration came from the trend of adding bold color and bright patterns to a blank background. Even though the Hollywood Regency style became popular in the 1930’s, there’s a huge rebirth of the vibrant style today which we thought could (and should!) be translated into upcoming weddings! Incorporating details like the peach tones, actual peach fruit, and a modern background added touches of Atlanta to the theme. Our delicate, bright and metallic details brought this beautiful shoot together!

    This color palette is so unique! It’s versatile all year round and may or may not be my new website inspiration.
