Tag: bridesmaid gift ideas

One of the most frequently asked questions from readers when planning my own wedding was about what I was doing for bridesmaid gifts. Everyone, it seems, is looking for a token that’s sweet, personal, meaningful, aesthetically pleasing, and that bridesmaids will keep, use, and/or treasure — oh yes, and it can’t be too expensive, especially with the size of some bridal parties in the South. That’s a tall order for any surcee to fill! Happily, The Bride’s Maids Shop is stepping in to offer some delightful options.

The Bride’s Maids is a one stop shop featuring specialty bridesmaids gifts and carefully curated gift packages. They aim to lessen the stress surrounding The Great Bridesmaid Gift Hunt by providing high quality, highly personalized presents.

Many of their items are handmade or designed exclusively for their site, which we love! We also love how they’ve sorted their picks into packages, making it easy for brides to personalize without pain. We’ve highlighted a few throughout this post!

Every package includes complimentary gift wrapping and a thank you note card – a huge timesaver that makes it easy for you to pen a heartfelt note to each gal before handing her goodies over. Because truly, letting your best ladies know how much they mean to you (in writing!) is one of the best gifts you can give.

Ready to purchase? The sweet folks at The Bride’s Maids Shop are offering SW readers 15% off their entire order with code SOWED15!

And, since it seems like everyone’s always searching for ideas, we’d love for y’all to chime in: What did you gift your bridesmaids, if anything?

With Lisa’s exciting news still reverberating in our office, engagement rings have been on all of our minds! Even if you’re already married or engaged, like me, I don’t think talking about beautiful sparklies ever gets old. And happily, an engagement ring is NOT your last opportunity to shop for heirloom pieces. Today’s sponsor, REEDS Jewelers, specializes in both engagement pieces and jewelry for your happy life together — the best of both worlds!

Mercy — gorgeous, don’t you think? REEDS Jewelers specializes in Forevermark diamonds, which are extremely rare (less than 1% of stones are eligible for the designation), responsibly sourced, and individually certified and numbered.

The REEDS Signature Diamond collection is based on the company’s family values and also offers a great value to couples. Signature Diamonds are mined, cut, and polished in Canada with complete social and environmental responsibility throughout the process — very reassuring. 100% recycled gold is used in the manufacturing process, and each Signature Diamond over .30 carat is independently graded by GIA.

Already have your engagement ring? REEDS Jewelers is still the place for you! They have some beautiful options for bridesmaid gifts, including Alex and Ani bracelets and Allison & Ivy monogrammed jewelery. Both collections have hundreds of styles to choose from, making it easy to select a meaningful piece for each of your gals. And they offer free shipping with no minimum order — love that!!

Last but certainly not least, REEDS Jewelers has an excellent option for your gift for your groom: a Swiss Army watch. These timepieces are true heirlooms, made to be passed down and treasured for years to come.

The kind folks at REEDS Jewelers are offering a chance to win a $500 gift card to their stores JUST to Southern Weddings readers — click here to be entered! Be sure to like REEDS on Facebook to be eligible to win.

We’re proud to be partnering with this family-owned jeweler, and hope you love them, too! You can find out more about all of their beautiful offerings by visiting their site!

My sixth and final National Stationery Show recap contains some SUPER Southern gems. Let’s get started!

I just about died and went to Southern heaven when I walked into the Belle & Union booth! It was their first time exhibiting, and they sure bowled me over. Expect to see a lot more of this Southern goodness coming at you over the next few months!

Of course, old favorites are always nice to see, too, like our talented friends at Rifle Paper Co! Did I tell you that they designed my future sister in law’s wedding invitations? They did, and they were beautiful!

Up next was May Books, another new one to me. I loved their colorful patterned covers, and their motto – “life is too short for ugly notebooks.” Indeed! These customizable gems would make another great bridesmaid gift.

I was so excited to get to the Fig. 2 Design booth, not only because I love Claudia’s invitations and stationery, but because we had recently been corresponding about a fun collaboration for V5! You’ll have to wait until the fall for the reveal, but it’s goooood!

I loved this sweet little ribbon and gold shimmery backdrop at the Great Lakes Goods booth.

Don’t you love traveling halfway across the country only to meet someone from the next town over? That’s what happened with This Paper Ship, one of my favorite new exhibitors! Their booth was so cute, and I loved that they’re our Chapel Hill neighbors.

I thought this month-by-month watercolor calendar from Fine Day Press was especially beautiful.

As always, Dear Hancock had some beautiful hand-drawn and watercolored cards, but I especially liked their new product, the stand-in peony, which is meant to sit on your desk when you can’t have fresh flowers! Such a sweet idea!

The fill-in card for the year you were married was my favorite design at the Double Bravo booth. Again, such a great frame-able keepsake!

Flywheel Press was showing an assortment of adorable and just plain cool cards. I’m not even sure how those metallic, ombre-looking cards were printed, but they were really neat!

Last but most certainly not least was Rebecca from Wild Ink Press. I loved her sweet + cute greeting cards! Also, her business cards were THE COOLEST.

And that concludes my coverage of the 2012 National Stationery Show! I hoped you enjoyed seeing all the paper goodness that was on display this year. Let’s give one last huge thank you to Cyn Kain, who snapped all of these photos for your viewing pleasure!
