Custom Bridesmaid Gifts for Ivory & Blue Greenwich, Connecticut Wedding

Posted by: Jamie Kutchman | Founder

We believe something blue isn’t just meant for the bride-to-be, which is why we decided to break tradition with these custom bridesmaid gift boxes! The wedding party and guests were feting the bride and groom in Greenwich, Connecticut. With a wedding in such a classic destination, we knew we wanted to keep the bride’s ivory and blue palette at the center of the gift design. It’s safe to say we love the results just as much as the bride’s best girls!

We started the design by choosing the packaging. White hat boxes served as the perfect base, and every member of the Marigold & Grey team loved how the timeless navy ribbon popped against the white box. The bride presented this gifting suite to her bridesmaids to thank them, which is why we also included a “thank you for being my bridesmaid” gift tag designed by Just Write Studios to complete the outer look.

Inside each hatbox, we carefully placed three pieces sure to make each bridesmaid feel pampered. A watercolor sleep mask by Plum Pretty Sugar was sure to catch each ‘maid’s eye the moment she opened her box! We envisioned the ladies wearing their masks the night before the wedding to ensure they enjoyed a great night’s sleep.

A mask wasn’t the only piece included! Next to the mask was a Turkish-T towel. The navy and blue stripes are a classic, and we know the bridesmaids will use these for months and years to come! The custom suite was complete with a beautiful note from the bride written on botanical stationery.

All of the pieces in these custom bridesmaid gifts felt luxurious and completely feminine at the same time, which is why we know each bridesmaid will treasure her gift and use it for years to come!

7 Tips for Creating Bridesmaid Gifts Your Bridal Party will Love

Posted by: Jamie Kutchman | Founder

The bond between the bride and her bridesmaids is a special one which is why we love creating unique bridal party gifts for our wedding clients. While we do a lot of “will you be my bridesmaid” gifts, we also love to design gifts for bridesmaid luncheons and bridal party appreciation gifts to be presented on the wedding day. So many possibilities! Today we’re sharing our top seven things to consider when designing gifts for your bride tribe…

Packaging They Can Use Again & Again:

Whether we’re designing a custom gift or putting together a piece from our Pre-Designed Collection, we always think of packaging first! We frequently turn to our tried and true seagrass baskets, crates, totes, and hatboxes because each will undoubtedly be used again and again by your bridal party long after your wedding is over. They key is wrapping up the contents in a piece the recipient can’t imagine tossing aside!

Mirror the Wedding’s Color Palette:

Mirroring the color palette of the wedding is key when designing any wedding gift, and it’s especially important when gifting your bridesmaids. This theory is perfect to use when asking your bridesmaids to be in your wedding because it acts as a sneak peek into what they can expect. Not to mention, if you’re presenting your gifts just before your wedding day, your girlfriends will love that each piece coordinates with their bridesmaid dresses!

A Piece to Wear on the Wedding Day:

Your getting-ready photos are some of the ones you will all treasure for years to come. With this in mind, it’s always so fun when everyone is wearing a coordinating piece they can also wear at home post-fete. Plum Pretty Sugar robes are on of our go-to pieces because the colors and patterns are timeless and lovely.

Lasting Keepsake:

Although many of the pieces your squad will receive in their custom bridesmaid gifts can be reused, there’s something so special about a lasting keepsake. We love including beautiful Turkish-T towels! These are perfect as a new luxury item in your bathroom, but we also love bringing them along to picnics and the beach year round.

Spa Ready Item:

Getting ready for your wedding should feel like a day at the spa for everyone! Hair and makeup with your best friends – what could be better? Luxurious creams always provide a wonderful hint at what to expect, and we also adore Plum Pretty Sugar’s sleep masks. There are few things more important before an exciting day than a great night’s rest.

Something Personalized:

Every bridesmaid loves seeing her name in print so make sure to include a personalized piece! We love turning to calligraphers to carefully write each bridesmaids’ name on gift tags and hangers. Perfect to use for wedding dress photos and for her favorite piece at home.

Honor Your Wedding’s Location: 

With each gift we design, we always recommend including a salty snack or something sweet that can only be found in the area surrounding your wedding venue. Locals will think it’s fun to discover something they know and love well, and visitors will get to try something you adore. Another fun piece to use to honor your wedding’s location is a custom sketch of your venue!
