Brides: have you picked out bridesmaid gifts yet? Not sure where to start? You’ve come to the right place! I (Emma here!) love these charming initial necklaces spotted over at The Merriweather Council, one of the best bridesmaid gift ideas for 2014. These bridal party necklaces are hand-embroidered with your choice of fabric pattern and color (and thread color, too). You can coordinate with your wedding palette or pick unique combinations for each bridesmaid. To inspire you, we’ve hand-picked a few of our favorite initial necklaces from the shop. PLUS, we’re giving away a HUGE prize pack of initial necklaces to one lucky Emmaline Bride reader in our newest wedding giveaway! Let’s begin, shall we?

Initial Necklaces

If you could pick out any of these initial necklaces, which one would it be? My favorites from the collection are the polka-dotted ones. I would pick the lime green and white polka dot necklace or the coral pink (second from right, below). Oh, and with an E of course.

I love the initial necklaces with the hand-embroidered heart next to the initial, too, like this one (far right, below).
