- Wedding: October 2008
I’m thinking of putting together Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts that consist of a clutch, a scarf, either earrings or a necklace to wear the day of the wedding (in gold), a little set of gold bangles to wear the day of the wedding (maybe three or so tied together with a cute little ribbon) Sole Mates, maybe some nail polish, and a sincere letter to each girl.
NOTE: The only portion of these gifts that they’ll wear the day of is the jewellery. The gift as a whole is NOT supposed to compliment my wedding colors, but more to provide them with some tokens of my appreciation that they can use after wards. It’s too much trouble to try to find stuff I like in my wedding colors.
Do you like this scarf? I like this one a lot, but would only buy it in black. I don’t so much like super bright colors like the yellow and aqua. I think the black one is a great waredrobe staple, and I can see the girls getting lots of use out of this one. Opinions please!!
And, do you like this clutch? Or does it look super handmade/cheap/you prob wouldn’t use it?
And finally, I planned on finding large set of gold bangles and splitting them up into little bundles of 3 or 5 bangles and then tying them with a ribbon so each girl also has a delicate gold touch on their wrists. Earrings I’m considering would maybe look like this:
Haven’t decided on a necklace, but it would compliment this.
Note: I’ll be giving earrings to girls with necklines that wouldn’t compliment necklaces, and I’ll be giving necklaces to a couple of girls to compliment the necklines of their dresses (and my cousin who doesn’t have her ears pierced). Each girl has chosen their own spiced wine colored J.Crew dress.
Opinions MUCH appreciated! I’ve got to start ordering stuff…
