You’ve been such a bad little blogger recently.
Who knew wedding planning + job + medical treatment would dominate your life so much!
I apologise. Please be assured normal service plus some very exciting developments will resume in the autumn. I’ve been working on some amazing plans for the FTLOH brand while I’ve been away – but wanted to save launching them until I had the proper time to dedicate to them.
In the meanwhile, shall we talk Bridesmaids?!
I’m in the final countdown to my wedding at the moment, and one thing fellow brides have asked me countless times is “what can I get my maids as a thank you gift that’s a bit different?”
Well look no further; I’ve collated my five favourite presents for your special girls on your special day. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration when it comes to showing your besties that they mean the world to you.
- For speeches, handkerchiefs and emergency plasters:
Weddings come with a whole heap of baggage, so what better way to adorn your gals than with one of these beautiful clutch bags from Rewritten Bridesmaids? The non wedding specific slogan also means your girls can use them forever more on nights out – and we all know Prosecco is the ultimate excuse for naughty behaviour!
2. For lip top ups throughout the day:
Weddings come equipped with lots of food and booze. Naturally, that’s why we love them. But it causes havoc with the old lippy. Not to mention all that crying during the speeches and the ceremony. Make sure your girls are on fleek on the go with this super chic compact mirror.
3. For claiming their champagne while off on maid duties:
There is nothing sadder than a stolen gin, or rum, or Prosecco. Make sure your maids never misplace a drink while they are helping you on a toilet run or having their pictures taken. These are an absolute steal and would look nice on any coffee table after the big day.
4. For a special reminder of the day:
If like me you’re a sucker for a scent then what better way to pass on your passion than with a personalised candle? I’m sure all maids would love to take home a special reminder of the day with these hand poured candles by Thornbush Hill which burn beautifully and smell amazing! With a range of scents to choose from you can pick the one that matches your big day the best.
5. For planning the next big event:
KATIE LOXTON MAGICAL MOMENTS NOTEBOOK: £18.50
Right…Who is getting married next?! More weddings, birthdays, baby showers? This calls for more girly planning nights – because that’s really what we do this for isn’t it? Your tribe can be organised and on point with these lovely notebooks from Katie Loxton. Or just use them for day-to-day tasks in the office or at home.
What did you gift or receive as a bride or bridesmaid? Let me know. In the meanwhile I hope these suggestions help!
