GIFTS FOR YOUR WONDERFUL BRIDESMAIDS

           
Loli's Creations on Etsy
      Stunning ! That is what I would call these great looking clutches for your bridesmaids. A great deal of time & love go into seeking out gifts for bridesmaids. Here are some suggestions for you with links under each photo.
 Last week we worked at a wedding and our thoughtful
bride gave her maids & both Moms beautiful satin robes to relax in while having their hair and makeup done.


David's Bridal

Jewelry is a wonderful & practical gift that your bridesmaids can make use of for many future occasions.


Earrings and bracelet from The Left Bank Chicago
Pinch Provisions


Since many or all of your ladies may be spending the pre-wedding evening in a hotel this is a fantastic gift ! 
It contains an amazing array of items (21) including double sided tape, extra wedding bands and a mending kit.

If you have only one bridesmaid and you would like to splurge, give her a gift certificate to an elegant spa or a set of crystal champagne glasses. 
When I was a Maid of Honor for one of my best friends she gave me one of the best presents I've ever received...a leather bound edition of Lord of The Rings.
Happy Wedding !

2015 Engagement Ring Trends

A true highlight in your lives...Your engagement day ! Although many will prefer a classic setting and
stone, some women would like the newest and most trendy of engagement rings. I personally love the rose gold, since it is reminicent of antique jewelry. The twisted band design is also very elegant !
                                                               
Beautiful !

Fall 2014 & Spring 2015 Bridal Gown Trends

        The Fall of 2014 and Spring 2015 are incredibly elegant and exquisite for Brides.
Extraordinary detailed backs with sheer panels & lace, Draped backs reminiscent of 1940s' gowns, jeweled necklines, pearled embroidery and more. Another deja vu are scooped 50s' necklines ..so classic! Oh and two more fashion details: long feminine lace sleeves and large graceful bows a la Yves St. Laurent.
