Gifts, gifts and more gifts people! ‘Tis the season, and we are not talking about Christmas, dear readers (although hooray for that happening soon, too), but engagement season, of course. Seems that popping the question over the silly season is the most common time to do so, and why not eh? Pop a bottle of champagne while you’re at it, and peruse our website for all the answers you shall need. Where to start? Do yourself a favour and check out our Directory for recommend vendors and DO NOT MISS our Top 30 Bridal Boutiques & Designers to Follow on Instagram – it is truly a must, if we don’t say so ourselves.
But back to this post, friends. It has been compiled so you have easy gifts on hand to spoil yourself, your bridal party and heck, even your guests (shout out to the amazing Starlight Children’s Foundation for their wedding favours you’ll find below). This is also a goodie if you’re attending weddings, too, but now we sound like we’re tooting our own horn a little don’t we?
Scroll down for loads of ideas, including accessories (like the bling above from Amélie George and below from Krystle Knight Jewellery), shoes for you and your gal pals (by Forever Soles – adorned with beaded flowers, no less), beauty prods (to ace that base – glowing skin is a must on your big day), and some finishing touches to boot, from fragrances to hats, handbags and hair clips. There’s even a touch of delish whiskey and tasty tea you can now find at one of our fave bridal concept stores, Mrs Fray (ACT), perfect to calm your nerves or gift to encourage a little time out. Phew!
You’ll see we’ve also gone and highlighted a few brands we highly recommend for the men in your life. Expect chic details from M.J. Bale, suiting from Oscar Hunt Tailors and a one-of-a-kind signet ring from Cushla Whiting. Oh, and don’t miss the luxe (and lovely) plates by the talented Sara Sidari and vases (plus so many more ideas) from our friends over at The Wedding Nest, who are doing gift registries a little differently.
Lastly (but definitely not least), if you’re planning a summer wedding, or to make a weekend of it, a get ready swimsuit, or polkadot three-piece (including a matching bucket hat) has never been more necessary.
