For the Bride

There are many duties associated with being a bridesmaid or a maid of honor, such as hosting a bridal shower and purchasing a dress and shoes. Though not necessary, it is a nice gesture to let the bride know that she is special and these times are "all about her." A great way to do this is to give her something that lets everyone know exactly who she is and why you're celebrating. There are many options on the web whether it be clothing, accessories, or small gifts. Here are some of my favourites:

This tank and ones like it can be found on Etsy - for example Pantora Bridal Shop

Off the Market tee is from Kleinfeld's Gift Shop

"Bride" robe is from Victoria's Secret

This "just married" bikini is perfect for the honeymoon and can be found at David's Bridal online

Alternatively, you can get creative and make your own. This way, you can choose something in stores or online that you know the bride likes; perhaps a hoodie from a trusted brand. Many Etsy shops (such as Crystal Factory) will do custom rhinestone iron-on transfers. How about: Future Mrs. Last Name? Or "Just married" for the honeymoon?

Maybe clothing adorned in sequins isn't her thing. Something I have always loved is the idea of a custom hanger, which is such a cute addition for morning-of wedding photos:

This is from Etsy shop BridalWeddingHangers, but they can be found in many shops on Etsy. They can be customised with a name, like the one above, or simply "Bride." I love the addition of the flowers (or other accessories to match her wedding theme/colours).
  • Did you receive anything like this that remains memorable?
