Hi, loves! One of the best bridesmaid gifts you can give is a personalized one, since it is made just for her. One of the easiest (and most functional) gifts you can give are initial necklaces for bridesmaids. There are dozens of beautiful designs out there, but lately we’ve been swooning over the collection at Palomaria because they’re so insanely unique. These necklaces are handmade, customized with each bridesmaid’s initial, and are even created in any color palette you choose. This means you can coordinate the necklaces with the season in which you’re tying the knot, her favorite colors, or your wedding color palette. To show you just how lovely they are, I’ve gathered up a few of my personal favorites from the shop. Which one do you like best? I’m really digging the style above, as well as the purple flower necklaces you’ll see later in this post. Read on to see them all!

5 Wedding Registry Gifts for Coffee Lovers

Hi, lovelies! Emma here. If you’ve been following me on Twitter for some time now, you’re more than aware how much I love coffee. There’s a quote I heard once that I find absolutely true: “There’s a time and a place for decaf. The time is never and the place is in the trash.” Haha. I couldn’t agree more. Now that I’m pregnant (in the home stretch now!), I haven’t been able to partake in my favorite beverage, but once Baby Boy is here I’m going right back to it. Anyway, all this coffee talk has made me think about your wedding registry and how, if you love coffee like me, you should definitely add coffee themed gifts to your list. We’re sharing our five favorite gifts for coffee lovers with you today in the hopes it helps you with your own wedding registry — or helps a friend pick out the best gifts for coffee lovers!

Personalized Jewelry for Mom on your Wedding Day

by georgie designs

Picture it: it’s your wedding day, your mom has just helped you put on your gown, placed your veil perfectly, and she’s admiring you in the mirror (while wiping away a few tears). Now is the perfect time to give her a gift to say thank you for all she has done to help you plan this perfect day — but most of all, for always being there for you. Your wedding day is emotionally charged for her, as she realizes you’re no longer her little girl. That’s why we know a special gift is something to remind her that now you’re a wife, but you’ll always be her daughter. Today we’re sharing a few personalized jewelry gifts for mom on your wedding day we know she’ll appreciate and treasure forever. Read on to see what we’ve spotted over at Georgie Designs, one of our favorite go-to places for personalized, sentimental jewelry gifts. Enjoy!

“Ring Bearer Gift Ideas?” – Ask Emmaline

It’s time for a new Ask Emmaline question! This question was sent in to us from bride-to-be, Brianna. She asks,

I have asked my god brother to be my ring bearer, which is a little non-traditional because he will be 13 at the time of the wedding. But, he is super excited to participate! I’ve gotten gifts for pretty much everyone in the wedding party already, but I am totally stumped when it comes to him. Any ideas? Thanks!”

First of all, that’s awesome your god brother is so excited to be a part of your day! When it comes to a preteen or teenage ring bearer, the gift-giving rules change quite a bit. The sheriff badges, mini baseball bats, and coloring books or toys don’t exactly apply. You’ll want to give him a gift that makes him feel more grown-up like the groomsmen, but age-appropriate, too. I’ve consulted Andrew on this one because, well, he’s a guy and I am not. I tossed some ideas around with him and then he gave me his take on what he’d like to get if he was in your god brother’s shoes. So, here’s what we decided on together that we know will make him smile!

These Initial Necklaces for Bridesmaids Make Great Gifts

When you’re looking for the perfect bridesmaid or groomsmen gift, how can you be sure it’s something they don’t already own? Our answer: go handmade — and get it personalized. A personalized item with the recipient’s name or initial on it makes a more meaningful gift, as well as one they’ll be sure to use for years to come. Rather than something that simply states “bridesmaid” or “groomsmen”, which is short-lived just around and on the wedding day, something with their name or initial will be enjoyed for a longer period of time. We spotted these initial necklaces for bridesmaids, initial cuff links for groomsmen, and a variety of personalized handkerchiefs and pocket squares to complete the look from Aristocrafts as a few examples. These gifts are handmade in a studio with two hands, not mass-produced like countless others out there. These particular locket necklaces and cuff links go well with any theme, but they pair especially well with vintage inspired weddings. Ready to take a look? Let’s go!

We found a perfect handmade gift for bridesmaids they’re sure to use again: wine glasses! These painted bridesmaid glasses make a great gift for sipping champagne, wine or her favorite cocktail on the wedding day and beyond. Uncork a bottle of champagne for mimosas while getting ready and present to your girls in these custom painted bridesmaid glasses. Throughout the ceremony, use the glasses for toasting, at the head table and afterward as a special keepsake gift with her name and picture painted onto it.
