My brides often come to me for inspiration when it comes to gifting their most special ladies. There is no doubt that brides put a lot of thought into these special gifts, and I always encourage personalizing them as much as possible. Something as simple as finding out your ladies favorite perfume, and gifting them a travel size version to accompany their favorite lip gloss. These are always great add ons to any gift. Other items I love are personalized vintage jewelry boxes, engraved silver bangles, and custom clutch bags.
Which brings me to our vendor highlight this week. Oatmeal Lace Design is a Chicago based company specializing in customized bags of all sizes. Choose a different fabric for each of your ladies, add a custom label, and you have given your ladies a gift that not only they can use come wedding day, but something they will use over and over again post wedding. McKay (owner and creative mind behind the business) is lovely and so easy to work with. We recently purchased custom embroidered aprons for our assitants to easily stash away bridal supplies, scissors, iPhone, twine, safety pins, and so much more. I can't wait to see the final product, and there is no doubt that they will be a god send during set up hours.
