Calling all Bride-to-be's! Show your gratitude to your bridesmaids and bridesmen in style.
A bridesmaid/bridesman is going to be an incredibly important part of your wedding day. They may be one of your closest friends or a family member and are there to give you moral support throughout the entire wedding process. From hair accessories and jewellery for your bridesmaids to everlasting buttonholes for your bridesmen, you are sure to find something here that they will love.
From the very beginning of the planning process, your bridesmaids/bridesmen can be there to help you make important decisions, such as what colour bridesmaid dresses to choose, what type of favours to give out at the reception, planning the hen party, and more. Then on the morning of the big day, the wedding has arrived and your bridesmaids/bridesmen will be there by your side to help you get ready and stay calm throughout the day.
One of my biggest tips from my own wedding is delegate, delegate delegate! Hopefully part of the reason you may have chosen your particular bridesmaids/bridesmen is being they also happen to be quite organised. Do not let this trait go to waste and ask them to help you with anything you need doing on the wedding day because you definitely won't have time!
I wrote a list out for the bridesmaids/bridesmen and ushers with little tasks e.g. fold the table napkins and lay the tables the night before, meet the wedding suppliers and tell them where they need to be, help seat the guests for the wedding breakfast etc. I also printed out and laminated a running order of the day and gave it to all the bridesmaids and ushers to have on their table and to the wedding suppliers as well.
As well as offering support on the day, they are also there in the lead up to listen to any worries or feelings of anxiety and overwhelm when you're also trying to hold down a job, share housework and try and have a social life!
Bridesmaids/bridesmen are an invaluable part of the wedding process and are your closest confidant and supporter. So, when it comes to picking out the perfect gift for your for them, you will want to choose something as special as they are. Something that tells them just how much you appreciate them and all of the hard work they’ve done to make your long awaited day completely perfect. What better way to show your appreciation than with a unique and thoughtful gift that has been handmade just for them?
I specialise in bespoke handmade accessories that make the ultimate perfect bespoke bridesmaid/bridesman gifts. A perfect way to say thank you. Not only are they personal and meaningful, but they can be customised to suit each bridesmaid/bridesmen's unique style. They can also be crafted to match your stunning accessories too.
From earrings and hairpins to shoe clips and buttonholes, my handmade accessories are sure to make them feel extra special and wonderfully appreciated.
One of the most popular accessories for a bridesmaid's gift are my ceramic flower-style jewellery. They are perfect for adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to their outfit as well as complimenting you, the bride, too.
Whether you choose a statement hairpin or a delicate pair of earrings, ceramic flower jewellery is a timeless and classic choice and a beautiful way to gift a thank you. They are also incredibly versatile custom pieces of jewellery. You can choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns, and shapes to match each of your bridesmaids’ individual personalities.
The process of creating these flowers is a labour of love from my studio in Devon, as each petal and stem is carefully crafted from clay and painted with intricate detail. Not only do these flowers make a beautiful decoration, but they are also a unique, treasured and a timeless work of art that will bring joy for years to come. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even get custom pieces made with your bridesmaids’ favourite colours or even birthstones.
All items are made to order and we start the creative process with a design consultation at my studio or over a video call. I will create a personalised experience tailored to your individual needs.
I will work with you to create a unique design that reflects your unique style and theme. We will discuss materials, colour, shape, and any other design elements you want to incorporate. I can also provide advice on how to use the accessories to best complement your wedding look. You can also order direct from my website. All pieces are thoughtfully made to order for you.
I must also share with you these delightful embroidered pocket squares from Tabitha Textiles. I think these would make fabulous personalised gifts for your bridesman or bridesmaid. She also makes embroidered socks which can have initials, wedding stationary logo or favourite flower - whatever you'd like!
It would be my absolute pleasure to be part of your gifting process, and I would be delighted to be there to inspire you and make your very special day a delightfully accessorised one for you and your bridesmaids/bridesmen. Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss anything, I am always happy to help.
Thank you so much for reading. Congratulations on your up coming wedding and I hope that you will get in touch to start our journey together!
