#teamwhywedding: Bridesmaid Gifts

I seriously love giving people gifts. I love picking out exactly what I think they'll like and then giving it to them. For my bridesmaids, my best girls, this wasn't any different. I had already given them a mini gift when I asked them to be my bridesmaids, but I wanted to also give them something else that they could use on the wedding day.

I started off by buying embroidered tote bags from The Knot Shop. I purchased them on Black Friday, and they were on super sale! I highly suggest all brides shop for gifts and other things on Black Friday, even if you have to get stuff way ahead of time. I just looked at the selection of bags that The Knot has, and some of them are SO CUTE. I want one.

Like most brides, I was looking forward to getting some photos of all of us getting ready. I knew that I wanted to order some matching robes for us all, and I was lucky to find a good deal on these Lilac Bridesmaids Robes from Laughing Cherries. I think that this makes all of the photos look cohesive, and I know that my sister still uses hers. 

It was so easy for me to order these for each girl, as they ask for size and height. One of my bridesmaids was 9 months pregnant at the time, and they had a maternity robe that fit her perfectly!

For my little sister, I wanted her to have something special to wear on her head. She had been talking about a flower crown for YEARS (yes, I know), but I wanted it to be one that she could keep and wear again if she wanted. I ordered this white and ivory paper flower crown from Kamipapa on Etsy, and it looked perfect. She's even worn it since, so I'm glad I went with paper.

I just love this photo of Caroline. My beautiful girl inside and out!
One of the things that makes me the MOST uncomfortable ever is when my feet hurt. I love wearing sandals, especially to dance and party. I purchased flip flops from Old Navy (similar to these) that had straps on the back, and a couple of the girls changed into them. It wasn't really necessary, but I think it was a nice gesture.

The last thing that I gave my girls were these beautiful bracelets made by my friend Becca at A Jones of All Trades on Etsy. Becca made these bracelets to match the color scheme of the wedding, and they turned out beautiful. The girls all wore them the entire time.

Becca does custom orders, and she will even gift wrap for you! Right now My favorite thing in her shop is the Emily White Statement Necklace. That would be perfect for any bride for a number of different events.

Becca has been so kind, and she's offered my readers a 25% off code! Use the code ALWAYSAL2016 before December 20, 2016, to get the discount! This is a huge savings on beautiful items that make wonderful holiday gifts!

Now it’s your turn to link-up and share your wedding tales. I love reading all about your big day, someone else’s wedding adventures, or anything else wedding related. Nikki and I can’t wait to read all about it!
