Southern Living June 2016 all pages

We love a good throwback for inspiration, so here is one of our favorite photo shoots from recent years- for Southern Living Magazine, how to “Throw a Porch Party”.  I wanted to share all of the details with you in case you are still needing inspiration for your Memorial Day weekend. I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.

Let’s talk gifts for you gals today, ladies. We have recently found ourselves more and more helping our brides curate gifts for their hostesses, mothers, and bridesmaids, so we thought we would share some of what we are seeing these days.  Jewelry is still a mainstay, but more and more ladies are taking a step away from things like pearls (even though they are having a moment) and trying out statement pieces that of course your girls will want to wear again. Places like BaubleBar, JCrew, and locally Croghan’s Jewel Box are great reliables sure to always have options. Of course embroidered handkerchiefs are perfection for a sweet little something that the girls can keep forever, use at all of the weddings, and possibly pass down one day.

Pj’s and Robes are always popular too. Love this concept of photos of the bride and her maids together getting ready for the day and of course looking fantastic while doing so. Most of our clients treat their ladies to the hair and make up services on the wedding day, so these are a sweet little something for them to take home with them that compliment that. Our favorites are from Lake Pajamas, Plum Pretty Sugar, and Kim + Ono.

Some additions to this could be some super sweet slippers like the ones Birdies has come out with, or try some customized ones available on Etsy or Amazon.

Loved our bride’s idea for a private yoga sesh before the getting ready process, which included personalized yoga mats.

Some other ideas include: Customized beach hats and Turkish towels (perfect for a bachelorette weekend or destination wedding), or custom clutch purses..

With Mother’s Day on Sunday, we would be remiss if we didn’t do an ode to all of our lovely mothers of the bride… We are so lucky to work with such wonderful women and wish them all a very happy Mother’s Day!
