our favorite things {for the bride}

Between the many brides that come into Fleur de Lis, all of us having been brides within the past 4 years and the many weddings we’ve attended {or planned} throughout the years – we’ve seen our fair share of showers gifts and bridal gifts for the soon-to-be Mrs. We’ve compiled a collection of our favorite things {for the bride} that she is guaranteed to LOVE.

1. One-year subscription to Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, $12: With DIY ideas, etiquette and beautiful wedding inspiration from Martha herself {and her panel of amazing experts} – this gift will keep on giving every time it arrives in the mail box. If you want a more frequent magazine subscription, TheKnot and BRIDES are good options too.

2. Wedding Organizer, Russell + Hazel, $37.50 {originally $75}: This organizing set will help brides stay organized and on top of all the details for her wedding day. Set includes a signature binder, planning notebook, organized adhesive note set, sheet protectors, 2 business card pages, 10 81/2×11 pages and 5 multi-format pages. Free Downloadable templates, such as wedding timelines, budget worksheets, checklists, music worksheets, floor plans, day-of wedding checklists, etc, available here.

3. Engagement Bracelet, Kathryn Giarratano, $50: Give a lovely bride a beautiful reminder of her wedding and engagement with her “something blue” and sparkly wrapped around her wrist. Kathryn creates one-of-a-kind jewelry for all occasions, but we are gaga for her sweet engagement bracelet. You can order through Kathryn’s retailers {including Fleur de Lis}, or e-mail Kathryn directly at kathryngiarratano@gmail.com for special orders.

4. Customized Bridal Hanger, Suspended Moments, $25-$27: We are in LOVE with this personal gift that will be the picture perfect shot on her wedding day {as the hanger holds THE wedding dress}, but also a reminder of her wedding day and her new journey as a Mrs. {hanging in the closet every day after she says, “I do”}. Match the wedding colors, or stick with a wooden hanger – either way – this gift will have a bride feeling very special. A bonus – Dawn, the shop’s owner and creator, is SO wonderful to work with.

5. The Bridessentials Kit by Ms. and Mrs., sold online and at Fleur de Lis, $28: A survival kit for the big day is essential for any bride. Kit includes brush with mirror, hairspray, safety and bobby pins, earring backs, blotting tissues, emery board, clear nail polish and remover, mending kit, scissors, double-sided tape, stain and static remover, pain reliever, antacid, breath freshener, floss, deodorant towelette, bandages, tampon, super glue, extra wedding bands, and a “something blue” heart-shaped crystal.
