Being a bridesmaid is no small task. Likewise, neither is finding the perfect gift that makes your bride tribe feel appreciated and special. We have all been given that gift that sits in the proverbial ‘gift closet’ and never again gets touched after the big day. So look no further, a&bé is here to help you find a gift that not only will last, but will also make your girls look fab on the big day!
While robes and monogrammed goodies are great in the short-term, lets talk about jewelry and headvines. It's easy as a bride to get caught up in completing your ensemble and have the bridesmaids’ look as a afterthought, but what if you could take care of both in one fell swoop? At a&bé we offer accessories appointments but you may not realize they don’t have to be just for you! Imagine going in with your best gals, sipping champagne and finding your veil as well as all of your bridesmaids’ earrings. Not only will your friends love the quality time spent with you but they will look stunning in those hard earned wedding photos.
When thinking about gifting bridal accessories think about four things:
1. Your wedding look and how you want your bridesmaids to accent you
2. Your bridesmaid’s personalities and style: Do they have pierced ears? Do you know your Maid of Honor hates bracelets?
3. How your bridesmaids are wearing their hair: this could determine the type of earring, necklace or head-vine that would be most appropriate.
4. The versatility of the gift: think about how your bridesmaid could wear/use her gift after the big day. (i.e. a belt that could also be an awesome headband)
Remember that the reason these gals are to be a part of your day is because they have been a big part of your life, don’t forget to show them some love!
