- Wedding: June 2013
Today’s project: Assembling gift boxes for my 6 beautiful Bridesmaids!
Our gift-giving budget is less than huge, so I really had to get creative with my Bridesmaid gifts. In our circle, you traditionally give your maids a piece of jewelery to wear on the day of the wedding… and that’s pretty much it! I wanted to throw in a few extras, but didn’t have a lot to spend, so I had to do some searching! This is what I came up with…
Inside the box is:
An Ivory Lace Shawl – (“To keep you warm”)
Lifesavers – (“That’s You”)
‘Chocolate’ Notepad – (“To take note of all of the things I will owe you for after the wedding”)
Lillac Candle (they will be carrying handpicked lillacs) – (“To remind you of the day’s sweet smell”)
Polka Dot Tissues – (“For your Happy Tears”)
Necklaces (Maids will be wearing mismatched dresses) – (“To Make my Maids Match”)
Note Card (It says “1 Carrot, but I wish it was of the diamond variety”) – I will write a nice note in these closer to the wedding when I can add details about the Jack and Jill, Shower, and Bachelorette!
Here are the necklaces – I ordered them from Etsy, and then added the little mint bead.
Here is my DIY invitation suite so you can get an idea of the overall theme of the wedding:
I cannot say enough positive things about my girls. They are so thoughful, kind, and supportive! I can’t wait to share the day with them!
