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!

We often see a lot of designs, posts, print spreads, and inspo boards on what to wear for your wedding day, but we don’t want to forget all of the fashion fun you can have for your rehearsal dinner.  Today, we are sharing just a few of our favorite rehearsal dinner looks for your shopping inspiration.  Above, one of our most “liked” looks comes from our bride who married at her parents… And, for her rehearsal dinner, she sported Brandon Maxwell pants, a Remy Brook top, and statement earrings. Loving the pant look, and hope more brides consider it…

Speaking of a pant look, this bride (who is an interior designer) designed her own crop top/palazzo pant look and had it custom made for her. To add some personality and flip up the more bridal look that she was going to wear the next day, she sported some side braids…

This beachy bride went for a pretty in pink look for the welcome party night of her wedding weekend. So into the pink dress idea, both for other parties and actual wedding days!

Of course, the little white dress look is still a fave… Shorter, a different hemline, or profile are what many brides are opting for.

Of course, not to forget the gentlemen, a recent article in the New York Times discussed the trend of getting away from traditional tuxedos. We love to see a different look, and one of the most popular for us due to our Southern and coastal locations, is a white dinner jacket.

Navy tuxedos with varying styles of bowties are a big hit right now. We like this look for a groom who may be a little nervous to step too far out of the box, and navy is so classic it works for all seasons and locations.  And, ditching a tuxedo all together for shades of grey suits is a great look also… Happy dressing and happy weddings!
