We hope y’all had a very merry Christmas, and that we might be welcoming some brand-new fiancées to this column! If that sounds like you, be sure to visit our Newly Engaged page, and check back in a few weeks for our best tips for starting wedding planning on the right foot.
Today, we’re honoring the gals who will be at your side throughout your engagement–the ones who have likely stood by you for many years, and will for many to come!
Bridesmaids deserve some extra sugar for the role they play in your wedding and throughout your life, and we love these sweet embroidered handkerchiefs as a way to make them feel special. Wrap the hankies around their bouquets on the morning of your wedding, and then be sure they take them home at the end of the night! Try hunting for a vintage design to suit each gal’s personality (we’d look at Etsy, flea markets, or thrift stores), or purchase new for a matched set. Embroider each with their monogram or name in a favorite color or a hue that coordinates with your wedding palette.
Big hugs to Charleston photographer Jennifer Bearden for sharing this sweet photo! For more bridesmaid ideas, come visit us at SouthernWeddings.com. And tell us: What are you gifting your gals, or, if you’re married, what did you gift them? We always love hearing new suggestions!
