Hi, loves! Emma here. The other day I stumbled upon these bridesmaids shot glasses over at My Sister’s Boutique and had to share them with you. Seriously, I’ve never seen such adorably painted shot glasses before. These are hand-painted with amazing attention to detail. I looked further and found groomsmen shot glasses, too. Now your entire wedding party can open these as a wedding day gift and toast to your celebration! I’m crazy about this idea. We love these shot glasses so much, we’ve hand-picked them as today’s handmade-a-day wedding find. You have to take a look!
