There are lots of accessories that a bride considers as part of her overall wedding day look. While the obvious choices are shoes, veil, jewelry, and bouquet, a bride is also going to need a purse for a few essentials and a clutch is a classic and stylish choice. And, stylish is precisely what you’ll find with the multitude of offerings at Angee W.
Founded in 2009 by mother-daughter team, Angee & Vincci, this talented duo uses jewelry, feathers, lace, floral adornments and more, to bring together their exquisite creations. You can even customize the lining of each clutch with your engagement photo or another special image as well as having an embroidered message placed inside (which would make for a memorable bridesmaid gift). Each clutch would make for a fashionable finishing touch to the entire bridal party look so be sure to check out their entire collection!

When I saw these customized bow tie flasks from The Hair of the Dog I thought they’d make a fantastically fun gift for the groomsmen! All flasks are stainless steel and can be personalized with names, dates, initials, etc. You can even select a different background color to coordinate with your wedding colors.
And, if you don’t want to leave the bridesmaids out, not to worry, there are custom flasks for the bridal party, too. Even the bride and groom, if that’s how they want to roll!
There are a slew of styles and colors so finding the perfect fit to commemorate the day shouldn’t be too difficult. Keeping the groomsmen from needing a little “hair of the dog” the day of the wedding? That may require a little more effort.
Your bridesmaids and maid of honor have all done so much for you. Chances are they have watched you glow when you found the dress, cry when your dream venue was all booked and you had to find a back up, and labor over whether you wanted to go with navy or cobalt blue for their dresses. Give them a gift that shows them how much you appreciate them, and how much you value their presence in your life. Giving them something permanent, like a nice piece of jewelry, signifies that you see these relationships as significant and long-lasting.

Try a simple heart pendant…
For those of you who haven’t yet purchased your bridesmaid gifts, you may want to consider indivdualized gift baskets. Fill the baskets with each woman’s favorite things, such as candy, bath products, and beverages. Also nice to include is a book tailored to their interests, such as the following:
For the vegetarian: Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating. Mark Bittman outlines issues with the food and agri-business industries in America. Encouraging a more plant-based diet and organic lifestyle, Bittman’s writing is extremely approachable and informative.
For the history buff: Encylopedia of the Exquisite. The author, Jessica Kerwin Jenkins, explores the history of all things whimsy and great, such as champagne, red lipstick, and ambrosia. This book is…
This is going to be a bit embarrassing to admit but currently I am at a coffee shop working and I have three (yes, three) bags with me. My purse, of course, my computer bag and then a reusable bag filled with bits and bobs for errands I need to run. And as I look around, dear readers, I see I’m not the only one – all of us ladies look like we’re going on extended vacations to Starbucks. I’m thinking, we like our bags.
I’m a big believer that all you need is the right accessories to take your outfit from cute to Wowza! – an interesting headpiece, a killer pair of heels, a sentimental cocktail ring, or, in the case of Bagatelles&co, a retro-inspired purse.
Designed by a French textile designer living in London, Bagatelle’s line is handmade from vintage silks, tie silk and brocade remnant so each edition is limited, making for a unique bridesmaid gift or bridal purse that not everyone else will be sporting. And Rym will further personalize the purses with custom messages sewn in (think your wedding date, a sweet message to your bridesmaid, or even, just the word “love”).
