Hi loves! Emma here. If you’ve been to many weddings or showers as I have, you may be wondering… are there any cool gift ideas out there? I do love shopping from a good registry, and man-oh-man I love me some Bed Bath & Beyond wandering-with-coffee-in-hand. But sometimes there’s a couples gift so amazing you can’t help but balk tradition and go outside the list. This custom couple illustration is definitely one of those times and your gift recipient won’t own anything like it. That’s why it makes such a great gift for weddings, bridal showers, anniversaries, and even Christmas! You’ll probably like this print so much, you’ll want to add it to your universal registry or even order the version made for wedding invitations. Intrigued? Read on for more!
There’s a problem with tossing petals down the aisle and we’re here to show you the solution: the flower girl wand. Bur first, let me explain. The flower girl typically tosses petals down the aisle ahead of the bride at the ceremony. It’s cute, it looks pretty, and that’s her number one job. Easy, right? Well, it was all unicorns and sunshine until wedding venues began prohibiting it, for a multitude of reasons.
Rose petals, particularly the real kind, are most often selected for tossing because they look best and smell incredible; faux petals are great, too, and they’re super cheap. But what has happened in the past few years is, churches and other places of worship have figured out that couples aren’t cleaning up up after these petals. And when there are multiple weddings occurring in the same space following your ceremony, it can be a pain for venue staff to clean up since they have more important jobs to do (and only a short amount of time to do them).

Now THIS is the prettiest druzy necklace Etsy has to offer! Emma here and, if you’re as crazy over druzy stone jewelry as I am, you’re going to love this find. (What is this stone? Find out here.) We spotted it at Layered + Long, where it is selling like hotcakes. This druzy stone necklace makes a beautiful gift for bridesmaids, as it is available in many different stone colors and chain lengths. I personally love to wear a necklace with a very long length, like 24″ or 20″. You can choose those sizes or go shorter (i.e. 16″ or 17″). You can see the full chart on their website. Check out the druzy necklace Etsy shoppers are going nuts over this holiday + wedding season!
