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!
Initial Necklaces for Bridesmaids
These initial necklaces can be personalized with each bridesmaid’s monogram on the front in your choice of thread color. Choose a color which coordinates with your wedding color palette or pick her favorite shade. Inside the locket, sneak a favorite photo of the two of you to make this gift even more meaningful. Don’t forget to include a handwritten note or card telling her how much you appreciate her being a part of your wedding day (and for being a wonderful part of your life).
And the initial fun doesn’t stop there: we’ve spotted some initial cuff links for groomsmen and fathers, too!
