objective:

We were so excited when Charlotte hired us to design a comprehensive gifting suite for her wedding to include bachelorette weekend gifts, bridal party appreciation gifts, groomsmen appreciation gifts, and wedding welcome gifts. After enjoying an amazing bachelorette weekend in Napa planned by her entire bridal party, by the time the wedding rolled around, Charlotte wanted to make sure they felt just as pampered and loved as she did throughout her entire planning process. This meant creating luxe bridal party gifts to be enjoyed by her bridesmaids on the weekend of the wedding.

approach:

In order to help Charlotte celebrate the most important women in her life, we designed gifts that were full of nods to their wedding aesthetic (ivory and merlot) all while combining treats to be enjoyed while getting ready on wedding day as well as keepsakes that the girls could take home with them and be reminded of Charlotte’s friendship long after the wedding was over. We knew the presentation had to be special so we arranged for custom-made ivory hat boxes and instead of the traditional rope handles, we removed those and instead strung them with deluxe satin ribbon in the most beautiful shade of gold. Then we added the softest sets of boyfriend-style sleep shirts and paired them with ivory UGG slippers featuring the cutest ivory pom poms. Next, we curated a small grouping of treats to be enjoyed together including fresh croissants and bubbly. For an additional keepsake, we selected floral-scented candles, also in ivory, along with a set of gold foil matchboxes. Last but not least, we had custom notes created with a personalized message from Charlotte to each one of her bridesmaids. We also featured each bridesmaids’ name on matching ivory gift tags as a final personal touch!

from the bride: 

"Thank you so much for making all the gifts so perfect! Our bridal party loved their gifts, we gave them last night and everyone loved them! Thank you again for all the hard work and love put into these. It really shows!"
