Will you be my Bridesmaid?


Your love popped the question, and now it is time for you to pop the question to closest friends!

Whether you choose to have bridesmaids or not, there are still a select number of people {maybe, “honorary guests”} you want to make feel a little extra special in celebrating with you on your wedding day.


Some brides view wedding party gifts, or bridesmaids gifts, as a tit-for-tat gift in return for them footing the bill for their dresses, shoes, plane tickets, etc., but it’s more than that; it is important to show your ‘maids how much you love and appreciate them being there for you on your big day and the months leading up to it. After all, these are some of the most cherished people in your life!

There are so many sweet ways to asks your besties to be a Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor in your wedding, but we wanted to share a few of our favorites with you!


Bridal Boxes are so IN right now and are super customizable to your wedding theme!


For the DIY Bride:

How much fun is it to choose all the fun things that represents your wedding and compile them into a cute little box?!

Some contents that make us swoon:

-Bath Bombs

-Champagne or Wine {Duh!}

-Nail Polish {the perfect color to match your theme}

-Confetti Poppers

-Chambong {maybe a hint for the bachelorette party – Yay!}

-Face Mask



-A Handwritten Letter


Of course, you don’t have to include all of these items if you choose not to, but any of these wrapped with love will surely make your soon-to-be Bridesmaids feel loved!


For the not-so-DIY bride or the Busy Bee Bride, there are several companies who would LOVE to make your boxes for you!

This OneHope Bridesmaid Crate is one of our favorites!


One Hope is a Napa Valley-based company that impacts the world with sparkling brut (and other charming products) to make the world a better place. When you purchase wine, you are helping shelter animals find forever homes, trees are being planted, meals are being provided to help stop childhood hunger, and many more! Specifically, for every Bridesmaid Crate you purchase, OneHope provides ten meals to children in need.

You can choose the customization of the box(s) you would like to send and then they are delivered straight to your bridesmaids’ doors, or to your door for you to personally distribute.


Here is a list of other companies who make Bridesmaid Boxes:

– Teak and Twine

– Simone LeBlanc

– A Signature Welcome

– Wish and Pink


Besides Bridal Boxes, you can always send a beautiful hand-written note, ask while doing something you both love together {like shopping, or sipping coffee at your favorite cafe!} or take your bridesmaid-to-be to brunch and pop the question while popping a bottle of champagne!

However you decide to ask, it is a sweet gesture and will sure to be the start of a fun planning process and ultimately a celebration for the books!

Feature Friday::Pastel Rosemary Beach Wedding

It’s our first Feature Friday post on our new blog, hooray! Meredith + Beau’s Rosemary Beach wedding has received a lot of love and we are thrilled to share it with you. It was featured first with the lovely ladies over at Southern Weddings. You have to read her story and all the posts over on the Southern Weddings blog. Make sure you grab a tissue because the proposal will get you. Not only was this beautiful wedding featured on their blog, but a few images were used in the current issue. Go pick up your copy on newsstands now!   Then, about a month ago, Style Pretty decided it was so gorgeous that they wanted to share it as well. Meredith was such a sweet bride, so sweet in fact, that she and her new husband decided to move here and she is now one of our associate coordinators. Can you believe it? We feel so lucky to have her on our team! She had a great vision for her wedding and with her amazing team of vendors it was flawlessly executed. Images by Lauren Kinsey.
