Lets talk about something fun, shall we? How about Bridesmaid and Groomsman Gifts? Those are always fun (well, most of the time). I have been in my fair share of weddings and I have gotten some fabulous bridesmaids gifts and, to put it kindly, some not so great gifts.
*These pictures did not come from my photographer and are not as clear. Sorry 'bout that, but you get the idea :)
I said before that I wanted the guys in navy blazers, white shirts, light linen pants, and pink ties. Most everyone had a navy blazer that matched and a white shirt but the boys all bought a pair of the same linen pants in lieu of renting a tux. We picked out a Vineyard Vines tie that I adored but we didn't feel like we could ask each groomsmen to purchase a $75 tie on top of the pants. Solution? The Beau gave the ties as groomsman gifts and I think everyone really liked them. I know I did! The Beau and his groomsman wore pink with beach-chairs and my dad and his dad both wore the green with beach-chairs. Here is a little snippet from the VV website ...
The groomsmen were super good sports ... they were not allowed to sit down once they put on their pants because we couldn't have that linen wrinkled!
Oh my, I almost forgot the best part of the b-maids gift --the presentation, of course! I had the pj's wrapped in personalized paper that said "To my bridesmaids! All my love, Belle" ... but it said my real name. The paper was pink with a white font and it was precious. If you are interested in the personalized paper let me know!
This was the best picture I could get my hands on tonight, I am still in a hotel room. The gifts are stacked up and surrounded by our welcome bags. I will talk about those next week!
I would love to hear about your fave b-maid and groomsman gifts!
