Custom Bridesmaid Gifts for New York Fall Wedding // Part 1 of 2

FILED IN: Bridal Party & Groomsmen Gifts

Posted By: Jamie

We love creating custom bridesmaid gifts so much that I've decided to do a bridal party mini-series starting....today! Part One features a recent custom gift design of ours and when you come back for Part Two, you'll get to see the bride (a DC-area family portrait photographer) actually presenting her bridal party with the gifts on her wedding weekend. The girls' reactions are priceless! Not to be a spoiler, but happy tears are definitely involved.

When Dana of Dana Rose Lee Photography contacted me to outsource her custom bridal party gifts, she wanted gifts that complimented her elegant fall aesthetic while also highlighting some very special pieces of original art. Dana's mom, prior to passing away from cancer a number of years ago, was a well-known equestrian artist. Dana wanted to gift each of her bridesmaids an original piece of framed art of her mom's as a way of honoring both her bridesmaids and her Mom on her wedding weekend. As luck would have it, while searching through storage in the months leading up to her wedding, Dana ended up finding the exact number of original pieces in the exact same design allowing each friend to receive the same gift! It was meant to be.

Dana's color palette was navy and merlot so we kept everything very soft and neutral with pops of blue and red to allow the art to take center stage. We opted for natural open-top pine crates, lilac artisan candles, Rosebud Salve in vintage-inspired tins, a deep red pashmina, and an ivory Plum Pretty Sugar robe featuring the prettiest, most delicate lace trim on the bottom of each. The entire bridal party, including Dana, wore the robes while getting ready on wedding day. The bridal party also wore the red pashminas for portraits while we included an extra ivory one for the bride to wear as well!

In addition to custom gift tags in the same pattern as her invitation suite, we also included a small welcome note in each gift crate featuring the same organic motif. The gift tags were personalized with each bridesmaid's name to make the gift even that much more special. Silk merlot ribbon finished everything off.

When Dana came to our gift studio to pick up the crates prior to driving up to New York for her wedding weekend, she was beaming with excitement. It was truly gratifying seeing her reaction as she studied each and every element of the finished gift crates, realizing that her vision had truly come to life. Stay tuned for Part Two later this week where we'll reveal the bridesmaids' reactions as they see the gifts for the very first time. Trust me, you don't want to miss it!
