Bridesmaids' presents! But first, I am one lucky girl: I have a lot of family and a lot of dear friends. As a 7-time-bridesmaid myself, I know how fun and how special it is to be a bridesmaid. My maids included family and bffs: I had 5 bridesmaids and 10 honorary bridesmaids. My 5 bridesmaids included my two sisters, Ale's sister, Ale's cousin, and my childhood best friend. My 10 honorary bridesmaids included my college bffs, my post-college bffs, and my law school bffs. Now ... here really come the bridesmaid presents!!! The gifts: pearls, a pashmina, and Lilllllly!
Christine and Anne from On A String handmade gorgie pearl necklaces and oh la la did the bridesmaids wear it well (pictures to come)!!! As you know, I am a HUGE fan of On A String. These girlies are living the dream and make s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g pieces. If you are ever in Charlotte, I insist you visit their darrrrrrling shop!!! In addition to the necklaces, the bridesmaids received pashminas (blue, pink, and green) and the best book ever: Essentially Lilly!
Oh, and my littlest friend: our sweet flower girl!!! I gifted her This Little Piggy Went to Prada, a flower headband, a cardigan, and a bracelet. And she thought Christmas had come and gone! In 50 years, my hope is that our wedding party will still be the fabric that brings the color to our lives!!! They mean so much to us now and I cannot imagine life without them then. Chin chin maids!!! Xoxo-BLC
