Bridesmaids do a lot of work when it comes to getting a wedding in gear. Show your bridal party some appreciation with a special gift.
Everyone involved in a wedding tends to fuss over the bride and groom more than anyone, but it is all those involved, especially in the bridal party, that help bring everything together. They help plan the events, the maid of honor takes on a load of organizing and making sure the bride does not drive herself crazy, and all together they make sure that the entire party has as much fun before and during the big day. So how does a bride thank her best gals? While there are plenty of ways to thank them through little gestures over your future years as continued friends, little bridesmaids gifts just prior to or just after the wedding make a great reminder as well.
When it comes to thinking of gifts, especially ones that express thanks and gratitude, it is best to be as personal and specific as possible. If you’re planning a gift for the entire bridal party, then a themed gift makes a great choice. Whether it is directly tied into the wedding itself, especially if the event had a theme or overall motif, or is more of an inside joke related to secret shenanigans shared during the bachelorette or bridal shower, these sorts of gifts really bring the entire group together and make you all feel more connected and special. This can be a nice scrapbook of events, a random gag that references an inside joke that only you and your gals will get, another post wedding party to commemorate the event and the memories shared, these sorts of all encompassing gifts help you all create new memories for you all to cherish and really consider special.
Another gift, especially for a party comprised of many different but many important people to you, is to make completely personalized gifts. You can choose to find person specific items that show exactly how much you care about each individual, or you can mix the previous idea with a more personalized one by getting your bridesmaids charm bracelets. With charm bracelets, you can start each girl off with a charm or two that is specific to them as a person and/or to your relationship with that person. These little gifts are not only meaningful but useful when it comes to accessorizing as well!
Gifts don’t have to be specific to each individual in order to be appreciated. There are other great options that can appeal to your group of bridesmaids. They’ve already spent money on their bridesmaid dresses, so give them clutch purses or necklaces to compliment their look. Try to pick neutral colored bags and jewelry so that they can use it with many outfits in the future. Another nice option is a scarf or shawl that they can use if it’s an outdoor wedding and might be a little chilly.
No matter what you choose, you and your party will never forget the process from beginning to end and will be thankful they got to spend such a special day with you and make it all possible.

A beach wedding means tropical weather and soothing atmospheres. Why not mirror the venue in your choice of bridal accessories?
Destination weddings can be a lot of fun, whether you’re planning one, enjoying one and getting everything prepped for one. These sorts of venues allow for some guidance as well as fun when it comes to curating the decor. You know that a beach theme is the way to go but there is still a lot of room for experimentation and personality to work within this style. There are some basics you can use as guidance when it comes to accessorizing for your beach wedding to help get you started.
One of the more obvious and beautiful beach motifs are seashells. These gorgeous natural finds are pearlescent and unique and can be worked into your overall wedding theme quite easily. When it comes to accessories, you can simply use seashell inspired items. Clasps, rhinestone studded hairclips, accents, and charms can all be used in necklaces, dress accents, rouche clasps, rings, hair accessories etc. But you don’t always have to go with the obvious. Jewelry and accessories featuring mother of pearl insets, gems, tile mosaic designs, and seashell inspired swirls can all be used as well. Also, think of combining a bit of everything in order to embody the theme as a concept as well as a design. Use mother of pearl earrings, paired with a seashell clasp at the gathering of your bridal skirt with a swirling ring or necklace. Mixing and matching all of these little elements can be classy and creative while still giving off that beachy feel.
Don’t forget about the ocean as well! That sparkling cerulean makes a great accent color and can be used in many ways. Ribbon, lace, gem accents, makeup and shoes can all exhibit the look and feel of the soothing ocean waves. Accent your wedding gown with blue lace or gem insets, wear sapphire or similarly colored jewels in your bridal accessories, or even use small blue accents in your hair. Whatever fits your fancy, there are plenty of ways to add a little bit of color into your wedding repertoire. If you want to go for an even more subtle look, you can bring out the neutral tones of the sand by using rich, creamy beiges and browns instead.
There are plenty of beach-themed accessory ideas you can work with but these are some of the easiest. They can be easily incorporated into your wedding day look without overpowering any traditional styles and can easily adapt to more modern styles as well.

Don’t forget to accessorize on your big day! Here are some unique clutches to add some character to your wedding ensemble.
Every bride seems to be preoccupied with her wedding dress, above most all things, when it comes to planning her wedding. It will be, after all, the focal point considering the bride is one of the two special people being honored on such a wonderful and meaningful day. And while the dress is important, of course, you can’t forget all of your other accessories! Though they may not be as important for the ceremony, they absolutely do become important when it comes to the reception. The reception will be all about feasting and dancing and celebrating, so why not glam up a little? And not to mention, you’ll want to have some of your essentials on hand, so why not accessorize with a unique bridal clutch?
Clutch purses are always elegant, no matter what style or look you happen to be going for, and they are more than perfect for your wedding. Even the most traditional and timeless dress can be accented with a unique clutch. For instance, a pure white satin rhinestone clutch with embellished enclosure would work wonderfully. It would also look great alongside a more vintage inspired or retro gown. The appearance of this bag hearkens back to a more romantic time that suits both dresses rather well. If you have a more modern dress, then an updated clutch would do well. Consider something like a black and white basket weave hard box clutch for a gown of sleeker design. This bag suits a more modern look in both its use of pattern as well as its black and white color scheme. Black and white is always classy but has just as much appeal to edgier looks, as well.
Don’t forget about destination weddings, either. Where your reception will take place can have just as much influence on your choice of accessories as your choice of gown. If you’re headed to warmer climates to celebrate your vows, then a mother of pearl hard box will suit a beachier scene perfectly. The mother of pearl insets reflect the seashells of the beach and can be used with more modern dresses as well, especially considering its geometric pattern. If you’re headed to a swanky, candle-lit venue then a pearl embellished one ring knuckle duster will do the trick. Working well with both classic and timeless pieces, this bag is glitzy yet elegant all at once.
Remember, while your dress may be the focus of your wedding ensemble, the accessories do just as much to complete the outfit!

We all know the rhyme. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Incorporating something blue into your wedding look can be a challenge. A fun way to add the color is with a clutch purse. A blue clutch fulfills two needs at once. You’ll be able to check the rhyme off your to do list and have a place to store all your essentials for the big day.
A great choice is the royal blue satin hard clutch purse. It’s a fantastic combination of elegance and style. The cinched fabric at the center compliments dresses with gathered fabric or pick ups. This bag can be a nice addition to simpler styled dresses as well. Not to mention the vertical rhinestone stud panel which adds the glamor that every bride wants on her special day.
The optional chain strap also makes this clutch a great addition to your wardrobe. So after the big day you can wear it for an evening out and be reminded of the great memories of your wedding.
