These pieces would make cute gift ideas for the bride and bridesmaids who loves all things rustic or country. Today we’re sharing two mason jar bracelets and a necklace from Ellen B Keepsakes, a petite pair of earrings we spotted at Obsessories, and a darling mason jar jewelry dish by Zinnia Designs.

These Bridesmaid Sweatpants Make an Awesome Gift for Weddings

Bridesmaid Sweatpants

by sister9designs

When it comes to getting ready for your wedding, what will you wear? If you want your bridesmaids to be just as cute and cozy as you, these name sweatpants are the answer! While we adore these shirts and these incredibly soft robes, sweatpants are a favorite new idea for getting ready. And it’s easy to see why! Sweatpants are cozy. Comfy. Lounge-ready. Spa-ready. You can customize the letter color, so you can easily coordinate with your wedding or her favorite shade. Plus, since these sweatpants are personalized with their names instead of “Bridesmaid”, they are more versatile. Your girls will love to wear their sweatpants while getting ready before the wedding, and again before date night, en route to yoga, while unwinding with a glass of wine, or just to lounge around at home on a lazy Sunday morning.

So, when we saw these handcrafted wedding dress sashes over at The Storied Sash and saw how completely unique they were, we knew you would be as crazy over them as we are! Find out what makes these sashes completely one-of-a-kind, unlike anything we’ve seen yet for weddings!
