Bridesmaid gifts suggestions on the Huffington Post!

Darling’s Bridesmaid Gifts on Huffington Post Weddings

If I’m dreaming DO NOT wake me! Brideside asked us to co author and create these DIY bridesmaid gifts for an article for Huffington Post on “3 Ways to Pop the Question (To Your Bridesmaids)”. We couldn’t say yes fast enough.  We love a great DIY and we adore the idea of creating unique and special bridesmaid gifts for your girls. After some trial and error we came up with some cute ideas for your girls, no matter what their style.

1) Your style is crafty and vintage.

Pamper your besties with a homemade body scrub and coordinate the scent with your wedding season. Something like pumpkin for fall, lavender for spring, cinnamon for winter, and floral for summer.

2) Your style is glam and flashy.

What better way to celebrate the giving season than showing your gratitude for your best girls by making them a special keepsake — in gold, of course! Celebrities from Blake Lively to Jessica Alba have been sporting the personalized bar necklaces. I wanted to put my own spin on the trend for potential bridesmaid gifts. I found circle pendants that were easy to engrave so your girls can be reminded of you every time they wear it!

3) Your style is clean and polished.

While you’re at home for the holidays, spend time “hanging” with your bridesmaids and give their bridesmaids dresses a little special treatment with a personalized hanger, adorned with a velvet bow. I printed a special message on a standard door hanger tag and added some glitter to give it a little something extra. Your girls will be able to keep this fabulous piece in their closet for a long time after your wedding.
