Bridesmaid Gift Inspiration featuring The Everyday Co. & Whim Events photographed by Tiffany Von
When Natalie, co-owner of Whim Events, and I reconnected last year at a local event a spark was lit and ever since we've been dying to share how you can show your bridesmaids just how much they mean to you. When Jake and I got married (featured on Style Me Pretty) we made handkerchiefs for our entire bridal party with their initial hand-stitched. The gents kept them in their tuxes (handy for anyone who might need to wipe a tear . . . or two) and girls had them in-hand for those inevitable tears that happen at almost anytime in the day. Natalie loved this idea so much, she knew our custom linen handkerchiefs would be a perfect "thank you gift" for her client's bridesmaids and pair beautifully with their gorgeous bouquets.
The Everyday Handkerchief makes the perfect personalized keepsake. Handmade with just the right amount of detail with the option to let us hand-stitch a single initial or full monogram, our newest product is the perfect gift for anyone in your wedding party. Don't forget about mom, dad, grandma and your officiant. Choose from any of our fabrics and finish colors here then present it with a thoughtful note. We had ours hand-lettered by the talented Li Ward.
In this beautiful styled shoot at The Ames Hotel we share how special our custom handkerchiefs are! With the help from our friends Li Ward (calligraphy), Bella Bridesmaids Boston (Bridesmaids Dresses; Monique Lhuillier Fall 2016), Flair (Bride's Dress & Accessories), Amanda McCarthy Beauty (makeup) and Luxxie Boston (silk robes), we're so excited to tell the story of that special friendship and bond with your girlfriends on your wedding day.
Tears of joy welcomed. Just make sure you have your Everyday Hanky with you!
From Natalie of Whim Events, "This season, we have noticed a major shift in bridal party “gifting.” More and more couples are asking our team to source beautiful, sentimental gifts to ensure their wedding party feels appreciated and loved. We designed and planned this shoot with the thoughtful and purposeful bride in mind. This vision for this shoot was to create an unforgettable bridesmaid experience and a way for the bride to artfully thank her girlfriends for their years of companionship and devotion. Set in the luxurious bridal suite of the Ames Hotel Boston, we designed a day-of setting to reflect what every bride and her maids should experience – a relaxing and joyful day, prepping in a airy and beautiful environment while receiving the ultimate pampering. And with that comes the emotional moment for every bride; thanking her best friends with the most thoughtful and heartfelt keepsakes."
