I owe you an apology! What a fair-weather bee I have been! I’m sorry that I disappeared on you there, as life got a little crazy in Tiramisu land, but if you’ll allow me, I’m back for good now. Well, at least for the next two weeks until the wedding- uh- HOLY CRAP did I just say two weeks? I better get down to business then… and since I was a bad little bee I brought some gifts with me for my return. Unfortunately they’re for my bridesmaids, but I thought you might like to see them anyway.
*Beautiful bridesmaids! Here is where you run away from the computer screen!*
I had so much fun shopping for the seven most fabulous friends and sisters in my life… here’s what they’ll be opening up the night before our wedding…
Blue Topaz Earrings
SandySimone custom made these gorgeous and delicate blue topaz and sterling silver earrings. She was great to work with, gave me a discount for an order of seven, and packaged these earrings beautifully.
Blue Beaded Necklaces
I am pretty impressed with the quality and softness of these, seeing that I got them on ebay, and they weren’t very expensive. And as it’s damn near impossible to judge the color online, it’s a miracle that they match the bridesmaids heels exactly.
I’ve been a bridesmaid twice, and both times was given flip flops as a gift to change into at the reception. Totally appreciated, and made me a way more fun friend on the dancefloor. I thought I’d do the same for my friends.
Sheila D Bags
Personalized Gocco’ed Notecards
Mini Photo Albums
Yet another fabulous etsy find. I purchased these from etsy seller smbriones. They’re reconstructed from larger photo albums, and I’ve filled them with a few pictures of my bridesmaids and me.
Their final gift is that we’re paying for half of the cost of our bridal party’s lodging for the weekend at the home we’re renting for our reception (it’s a separate rental from the lawn). We wish we could swing the whole thing, but we hope they’ll appreciate us meeting them halfway! It’s a cool old house with a lot of character, but the best part is that we’ll get to spend a little extra time with them by having them all together there.
Next up- flower girl gifts!
