Bridal gifts you’ll want to buy for yourself

There are so many options for cute bridal gifts out there. T-shirts that say “bride” on them? Yes. A personalized ring holder? Please. Pretty wedding notebooks? Need. More than ever, vendors are letting brides customize all sorts of items with their wedding date or future last name. Gear emblazoned with “bride,” “wifey,” “Mrs.” and “bride-to-be” are all over the place. And it’s seriously irresistible.

There are bridal gift options for every possible wedding event, from an engagement party or bachelorette bash, to a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or the wedding day itself. While we recommend sticking to the registry when you’re gifting for the couple, if you want to treat the bride specifically to something she’ll love (and Instagram repeatedly), here are a few ideas. From swimsuits and PJ sets to luggage and trinket trays, here are a few sweet bridal gifts you’ll love giving… or keeping for yourself.

Get Inspired ~ Alex & William

Married May 27, 2017 

A rustic themed wedding is always popular, but mixed with a little romance it’s perfection!

With an air of free-spirited whimsy paired with a bohemian elegance, Alex’s sexy lace-over-Imperial-Crepe sheath wedding dress from Mira Bridal Couture let her show off her sexy curves while letting her move with ease at their outdoor affair. The details, scalloped lace hem, and on-trend dramatic low back had William wowed! 

Alex ordered rustic wood signage from Paper and Pine Co on Etsy that complimented the specialty furniture rentals from AZCO Rustic Designs & Rentals.

Hanna Overholtzer of Bella Fleur created a breathtaking display of soft floral and greenery garland as the tablescape. Fruitwood wood chiavari chairs complemented the natural surroundings. 

Alex and William entertained their guest during their first dance to Thomas Rhett’s, “Die a Happy Man”. 

“I don’t need no vacation, No fancy destination

Baby, you’re my great escape

We could stay at home, Listen to the radio

Or dance around the fireplace

Baby, I could die a happy man”

What Not to Do At A Wedding!

The official kickoff of wedding season is upon us, so we felt it only right to highlight a few no-nos for those the celebrations ahead. Bottom line: remember that it’s the couple’s big day, and you’re there to offer love, support, and encouragement from beginning to end. Avoid these little (and big!) guest mistakes, and you’ll be sailing smoothly all wedding season long.

DON’T BRING AN UNINVITED PLUS-ONE
Unless your invitation specifically includes a plus-one, don’t show up with a guest on the fly.

POST WITHOUT PERMISSION
When in doubt, pause before you post anything about a wedding to social media, especially  big reveals like the bride in her dress BEFORE the ceremony begins.

FORGET TO RSVP
So much time and effort goes into seating charts and meal planning, so if you plan on attending it’s an absolute must to RSVP.

CAUSE DRAMA
A baby meltdown is understandable, but as a grown-up wedding guest, save the drama for your mama.

MAKE CRITICAL COMMENTS
This is not the time or place to be a Debbie Downer. Remember, if you can’t say anything nice…eat cake and zip your lip.

SHOW UP TOO EARLY
We get it, you’re excited to celebrate. But don’t intrude on private moments before the day officially kicks off.

SHOP WAY OFF THE REGISTRY
Sentimental gifts are always appreciated, but also make sure to respect the time and effort the couple has put into crafting their registry.

WEAR WHITE
This may seem like an old-fashioned rule, but avoiding white at a wedding is still always a good idea.

WALK DOWN THE AISLE
Show up late? Make sure to enter from the sides rather than walk down the aisle.

BE THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Don’t be THAT guest who tries to play “second shooter”. Of course, couples always love extra moments captured but make sure you aren’t getting in the way of the professional photographer.

STAY GLUED TO YOUR PHONE
Make sure to be present and truly celebrate. You can always post your #latergram

TRY TO RUN THE SHOW
Unless specifically asked to be the event planner, leave it to the professionals the couple has hired to let the wedding day run smoothly.

STEAL THE MIC FOR A TOAST
It may seem like a good idea in the moment (especially after a drink or two) but just don’t do it.
