Our rehearsal dinner was tonight, so I can finally share my bridesmaid and mother of the bride/mother of the groom gifts!
A few months ago, I shared the Handmade Bridesmaid Clutches I made for the girls (and what I filled them with), but in addition to the clutches, I made them bracelets to wear to the wedding. They have Swarovski crystals, pearls and glass beads in our wedding colors of coral and navy.
I also purchased these starfish necklaces for them to wear as well. I created the box inserts in Photoshop- they say “thank you for standing by my side on my wedding day” and I placed them inside jewelry boxes that I decorated with a starfish stamp.
I placed the bracelet in an organza bag, and then placed the bracelet, necklace and clutch into a box, wrapped it with blue paper and raffia, and placed a thank you tag (with a starfish!) on it.
For the mothers, I have to say, I was stumped. I finally decided to make them each a necklace- my moms is on the left, it is a drop necklace with an infinity symbol and her box insert reads “Thank you mom for your infinite love”. For the mother of the groom, I made a metal stamped necklace with our wedding date on it. Both moms got starfish charms in going with the theme of the wedding.
The guys all got engraved pocket watches from Things Remembered, which I wrapped with the tie we want them to wear on the big day.
All in all, the gifts were a huge hit, and now we’re counting down the hours until the big day!
