Everyone loves a traditional wedding registry that includes every essential accoutrement for feathering a newlywed nest. That said, some wedding guests choose to take some creative leeway by gifting the newlyweds with uber-special personalized gifts. We have curated such gifts in our fantastic list by including personalized gifts for couples that further style or functionality — or both. So commemorate the couple's big day with these one-of-a-kind items from Neiman Marcus, Uncommon Goods, Shutterfly and more.
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.
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.
Here's the thing about your wedding day makeup: It's going to look incredible. And aside from maybe the heavy powder and false lashes, you're going to want to replicate and incorporate what the makeup artist did into your daily (or evening) routine. So, when you do your beauty run-through, work with your stylist to find out the exact products and colors she's using or go online and choose them together. A pretty eyeshadow palette can take a bride from her wedding day, to the evening reception, the honeymoon, and all the way to her first anniversary celebration (and beyond!). Here, we've chosen some of our favorite bridal eyeshadow palettes from Sephora, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more.
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.
