Google+ Southern Weddings V6: Surcees - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Although the word “surcees” tends to baffle our Northern friends (as well as a good handful of Southerners!), we’re sure y’all aren’t strangers to the concept: a gift given unexpectedly or for no reason. In the land of hospitality, we hate showing up to events empty handed and relish the opportunity to give someone the perfect present. From sweet wedding favors to darling newlywed gifts, our V6 surcees include something from everyone!

Chalkboards: Rowan’s Room

With Christmas right around the corner, we think these options would be perfect for newlyweds! We also suggest flipping through the surcees section of V6 for wedding favor and gift bag ideas–I think guests would love receiving a state-inspired candle in a welcome bag. P.S. You can win your own monogrammed wreath in one of our 12 Days of Christmas giveaways here!

Row 1: Horseshoe: Sycamore Hill , Horseshoe frame: Two’s Company; Row 2: Seed packets: Visualingual; Row 3: Candles: Archipelago, Monogrammed wreath: Laurel Creek Wreaths

We love these gifts for your gals! From bridesmaid bouquet ribbons to necklaces engraved with a loved one’s handwriting, these options couldn’t be sweeter.

Row 1: Monogrammed bouquet ribbons: Oatmeal Lace, Monogrammed hair bows: E. Olsen Designs; Row 2: Handwriting necklace: Surfing Silver, Louisiana necklace: Love & Gold, Monogrammed charm necklace: Mark & Graham, Austin necklace: Brevity, Monogrammed boot socks: Memento

Men can be notoriously tricky to shop for, but we think any Southern gent, from your groom to your dad, would appreciate these dapper accessories.

Row 1: Father handkerchief: Forage, Initial handkerchief: Mark & Graham; Row 2: Bullet shell cuff links: Oruaka, Cotton pod boutonnieres: Which Goose

It’s probably no surprise that the most fun surcees to receive and photograph are the edible ones! We loved getting these tasty treats in our office, and of course, sampling them afterwards.

Pound cakes, clockwise from top left: Savannah’s Candy Kitchen, Three Brothers Bakery, Two Belles Southern Pound Cakes, Nonnie Wallers Traditional Southern, Two Belles Southern Pound Cakes, Janie’s Cakes, Three Brothers Bakery, Savannah’s Candy Kitchen; Lollipops: Gourmet flavors from Boss Girls Inc., Farm animals and Texas shapes from Melville Candy Company; Big Spoon Roasters Peanut Pecan butter and Emily G’s Jam of Love: Bourbon and Boots; Chocolate: Olive and Sinclair; Cookies: State flowers: Maggie Austin Cake, Farm animals: Southern Sugar Bakery, States: Snickety Snacks, Monograms: Sweet Goosie Girl

Goodies for the home and kitchen are always wonderful gifts, and we love these choices for their Southern flair and overall prettiness. That sums up how we choose all of our surcees quite well, as a matter of fact!
