See below for some of Tara’s favorite gifts for bridesmaids, groomsmen and the couple to be married just in time for this wedding season.

Gifts for the Bridesmaids:

Dress up your bridesmaids favorite bottle of wine and or champagne. These wine bags are even cuter if you embroider their name or monogram on them.
Custom embroidered cocktail napkins – always the perfect, easy gift.
Your bridesmaids will love this no-fuss, elegant entertaining set.
Give your bridesmaids a staple accessory. This clutch is a “summer fabulous” and ready to be worn!
Another great bridesmaid gift find. Amazing cuff bracelet that is for any season. I want one NOW!
Love this soft blue linen scarf and it could even be a great match to go along with the bridesmaid dress.
Same linen scarf as above, only in pink. Linen in the summer is great to wear during the reception and to have for everyday afterwards!
Gifts for the Groomsmen:
Now those are some good looking ice-cubes – a groomsman gift any man can’t refuse. I want these to put in my glass of scotch!
Everyone needs a notepad and this one looks good on your desk too! A great groomsman gift.
Charleston’s magazine treasure, The Southern’s Handbook. It is GOOD!
Monogram these handkerchiefs for a groomsman gift!
A stylish and still masculine hammered glass decanter to polish up your bar.
What man would not adore these cufflinks? And they usually all need a little style added to their wardrobe anyway!
Gifts to give the Bride and Groom:
This marble cutting board is a great gift for the bride and groom. A classic entertaining piece they will have for a lifetime.
A set of these glasses engraved would make me VERY happy to receive!
A couple more tips from Tara…
Invite your bridesmaids and groomsmen to be part of your wedding with a personal note written by you.
A cute handwritten note for your bridesmaids.
An old-fashion hand-written note for your groomsmen.
And, need to dress up the wedding party?!
I love the design of this long dress. It’s young and fun and would make for a very pretty bridesmaids’ dress, not to mention, pretty wedding pictures!
Why not? This bow tie gives your tux a face-lift and is handmade from guinea fowl feathers. The whole crew will look polished and wedding picture perfect!
Happy wedding planning,
