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.
Modern weddings can carry on for days and feature multiple events, including the post-wedding brunch. This delightful event is more than an occasion for drinking mimosas and eating eggs Benedict: It's a stress-free occasion that takes place the day after the wedding when the newlyweds have experienced some much-deserved rest. The post-wedding brunch allows for out-of-town guests to say a longer goodbye and it ensures that everyone can discuss what they loved about the wedding.
So, what's a bride to wear to wear to the post-wedding brunch? We love a post-wedding brunch dress that's casual, fresh and lovely. We prefer ivory or white, whether it is a solid white or a white backdrop that features a delicate floral print. White keeps the bridal theme going, but it can have many incarnations, from a breezy sundress to to an elegant lace dress to a lightweight dress featuring embroidery. Here, we've made a list of gorgeous brunch dresses from Anthropologie, ASOS and Nordstrom. They range from casual to sophisticated, and any one will keep you chic during your post-nuptial bliss.
Amid the tumult of wedding preparations, there is someone who always keeps a cool head: Mom. Whether she's your mom or your future mother-in-law, she's been there since the beginning for you guys, offering her love and support. So, now's the time to gift her with a treasure she'll always cherish. Traditionally given at the rehearsal dinner or the morning of the wedding, gifts for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom should be substantial, but they don't have to be exorbitant. We've rounded up a list of gifts that cost $50 or less that are unique and memorable: Some are sentimental, others are practical and a couple are glamorous; choose which one best reflects your special lady's personality. We shopped at Uncommon Goods, Williams-Sonoma, Nordstrom and more for these thoughtful keepsakes. No doubt, you'll find something she'll love from this creative assortment!
It's time for the bridal shower, that celebratory event during which ladies "ooh" and "ahh" over the dessert bar, the fabulous décor and, most of all, the gifts. There's such fun to be had in watching a much-loved bride and her best gals bestow new goodies to help feather her nest. If you want to bypass the wedding registry, do so with an amazing gift that will leave her in awe. Plus, sometimes the bride leaves something necessary (think: a new tea kettle!) off her registry simply because she doesn't know she needs it. Trust us: She needs one of these chic items. So stop stressing about finding the perfect wedding gift because we found them for you at West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie and more.
A man's watch plays many roles: It has to fit his wardrobe, look fashionable and, above all, be functional. Having an array of options is great, but sorting through them is the tricky part.
