Choosing Bridesmaid Gifts | Wedding Guide

Of all the things that made up my wedding, I probably had the most fun choosing my bridesmaid gifts. Which makes sense when you know that I’m a serial gifter. I love spending hours looking for the perfect item, and the satisfaction that comes with finally finding it. In the end I probably spent several weeks choosing bridesmaid gifts. But I had set myself some pretty strict criteria to adhere to…

Choosing Bridesmaid Gifts

I didn’t have a massive budget for my bridesmaid gifts, as I’d chosen to also pay for their dresses and accommodation. That said, I wasn’t about to compromise. I still wanted to choose some special gifts that they could use again, whilst still marking the day.

The ‘Initial Necklaces’ were great as I was able to have them personalised, and they came in a selection of precious metals – luckily for me all my bridesmaids wore silver. The make-up for my Maid of Honour wasn’t an issue; she was already using Haloscope, and wanted to try out Lash Slick & Boy Brow – easy! Finally the hair pins and dressing gowns brought everyone’s outfits together – both before and during the wedding – and were a little reminder of the day.

My main takeaway from choosing my bridesmaid gifts has to be personalisation. Everyone has a different style and personality, so it was important to me that I took this into consideration, rather than buying a blanket gift for several people. I’d suggest anyone buying gifts for their bridesmaids take the time to look, and don’t just buy something because you think you have to (i.e tradition etc).

OOTD: Hear Me Roar!

Top – Sugar & Style | Trousers – Uniqlo | Shoes – New Look | Bag* – Heritage & Harlequin

Yesterday saw the sun rear it’s head again, and shine down on us. It was the perfect chance to take a long walk around Stoke Newington. So I quickly threw something light and casual on, and grabbed some cute accessories. No one wants to be wearing layers of clothes when they go walking. Yet I still wanted to look bright and colourful.
You may have guessed the point, and main focus of this outfit. Yes, my new bag from Disaster Designs was calling to be taken out. I love yellow, tiger print, and I love clutches that can be turned into shoulder bags. So as you may have guessed, I can’t get enough of this little beauty. It’s pretty awesome. I matched the yellow of the bag with the neon flecks in my top from Sugar & Style. When paired with my Uniqlo jean trouser leggings, it’s an easy Spring look. I did realise though that I need some light coloured comfortable shoes. 99% of my shoes are black, so I only have myself to blame. I think white sneakers would have perfected this.
Unfortunately I forgot where I bought the headband from.
I bought it last year at the Spirit of Summer fair, and I can’t remember who from, sorry!

Teeny Tiny Haul: Lisa Angel

You may remember my last post on Lisa Angel.
Well since then the brand has been growing and growing.
I’m always so proud to see local brands do well, so it means a lot to me.
I’ve known the brand since they first started up, which was quite a while ago.
My friend who works for them was kind enough to send me a couple of items recently.
I’m a big fan of rose gold lately, and after my rings from Whistles turned sour I needed some new ones.
I was lucky enough to spot these rose gold stack rings on the website, which were exactly what I wanted.
I thought the little ‘Live, Love, Dance, Sing’ motifs written around the individual rings was a lovely touch.
I’ll probably be wearing these altogether as a set, as I like to overindulge like that.
The second item was this beautifully petite semi-precious Lapis necklace.
A lot of the semi-precious jewellery I own are statement pieces, which means I don’t really layer them.
That may sound odd but I’ve been after something delicate, that I could layer with other necklaces.
Lapis is probably one of my favourite stones for this as the deep blue really stands out, especially against gold.
This may soon become my ‘go-to’ everyday necklace.
I had a lot of fun photographing these as the times and packaging were so cute.
Can I just be a jewellery photographer now please?!
