Bridesmaids' gifts show your bevy of besties how much you appreciate the support they gave you throughout your wedding prep and the big day. These bridesmaids helped you select a wedding dress, offered a shoulder cry on and laughed with you during the long, fun and stressful wedding day. Giving a fabulous bridesmaids gift is a traditional gesture of appreciation. We love bridesmaids gifts that are stylish, useful and possess universal appeal, particularly if they are cushy "extras" that your bridesmaids typically wouldn't have bought for themselves. So don't fret: We've rounded up the coolest bridesmaids gifts, including pieces from Anthropologie, Amazon and ASOS, to give you a list of gifts they will truly love.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
More and more brides are taking the leap and opting to wear a white jumpsuit on their wedding day. The chic look has been championed by celebrity brides including Solange Knowles, in her marriage to video producer Alan Ferguson, and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who, of course, is married to actor George Clooney.
Knowles actually wore three different jumpsuits by French designer Stéphane Rolland during her wedding weekend, beginning with a sexy ivory-toned version she wore while biking to the ceremony at New Orleans' Marigny Opera House. By the wedding's end, she was dancing in the streets to a brass band while wearing her third jumpsuit, with a plunging neckline.
For the Italian civil ceremony that preceded her wedding, Amal Clooney wore what looked like a white jumpsuit, but was actually belted separates, by Stella McCartney. Clooney, who is friends with McCartney, has also worn a one-shoulder jumpsuit with crochet lace and cropped legs by the British designer, as well as a lace burgundy jumpsuit by Giambattista Valli.
A white bridal jumpsuit is a chic dress alternative that is perfect for the style-savvy bride. As Clooney did, the bride can wear a white jumpsuit to her civil wedding for an unexpected look that is destined to impress. She can also wear a jumpsuit to the wedding ceremony to create a memorable look. As another option, she could wear a jumpsuit to her wedding reception, because this wedding-dress alternative is perfect for hitting the dance floor. Freedom is the vibe of a bridal jumpsuit, and we love it.
Shivering on your way to the altar is far from fashionable. Yet it's a surprisingly tall order to find a coverup that's appropriate — and suitably warm — to wear over wedding attire. Given the array of wedding dresses available, from romantic gowns to sassy cocktail numbers, we have found as many bridal coats, capes, stoles and shrugs to pull together your bridal ensemble.
For a sleek and chic look, faux fur is the gold standard. It's a standout for bridal attire for two reasons: It's toasty warm, and it's elegant. And it's a go-to for retro brides who want to bring some vintage luxury to their winter wedding. White fur will keep the look entirely bridal, but you can also choose a color or a natural hue. For the fashion-forward bride, we found a white faux fur moto jacket to rock your nuptials. And a black or white wool capelet lends an Old Hollywood vibe.
Below are some of our favorite winter bridal cover-ups from BHLDN, Boden, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, David's Bridal, Amazon and more. Each style was selected to enhance, not hide, your wedding dress, because the picks are as pretty as your gown. And the best part? Prices start at $28!
Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.
