My wedding is now scarily close, and I would love to report that I am in control and on schedule with my to-do lists (yes, lists), and to a point I am, but the remaining tasks make me feel like I still have mountains to conquer before I can say, I do.
I am now though in the process of bringing the details together; I’m painting the decorations, I’m having my final dress fittings, I’m planning my hair and makeup, and amongst other things, I am also looking for gifts and things for my bridesmaids to complete their overall look on the day.
Admittedly, just being invited to a wedding is a privilege and while some may scorn at that, it is. The Bride and Groom have costed you into their big day so while you may complain at having to buy a new outfit, book a hotel and possibly take a day off work, you do fundamentally have to remember that you are valued highly enough to be invited in the first place. So to be asked to be bridesmaid or Maid of Honour (see how I asked my girls here), is truly something to behold.
Of course every wedding is different as will the level of service required by your immediate bridal party, but regardless of whether you have purely employed them to stand next to you looking gorgeous, or whether they have had to take on significant responsibilities in the lead up to the wedding, including the day itself, it’s still a lovely idea to say thank you. My three girls have already got a small collection of goodies coming their way (including their dresses), but for other brides-to-be out there, you might be on the look out for some ideas to treat your bridesmaids and I might have just the thing.
Very recently I was sent this lovely charm bracelet* by the lovely Becky over at The Lifestyle Blogger UK, and I think it would make an ideal gift to treat your girls, or anyone in fact that you think would love this.
I love the assortment of aqua coloured stones, beads and the charms themselves –all completely suitable for a bridesmaid to complete her outfit as well as being something she can enjoy after the wedding to accessorise any outfit. If on the other hand this bracelet isn’t quite suitable or maybe you have several women to please, take a look at the many other pretty items (not just bracelets) in The Lifestyle Blogger UK Store; I defy you not to fill up your basket with other pretty accessories!
Until next time x
