Inspiration Board : personalized wedding gifts

Posted by

Two very special friends got married last month. Super Crafter Blake, and Stylist Extraordinaire Liz. Both a week apart from each other, both to Australian men, here in New York, and I was lucky enough to be part of both celebrations. Obviously I wanted to give something special, something personal, but then again they have wedding registries for a reason ... it's what the couples really want, no ?! Funny enough they both registered for Fog Linen pieces at Brookfarm General store. Now that I could get for them ... and personalize it too ! So I took their invitations as inspiration for an idea for a small embroidered embellishment on their chosen linens. I hope it will make them  happy, as they'll now have what they asked for, with just that little bit of extra love.

  • Love the idea of peronalised wedding pressie - the more personal the better.I was thinking about a similar thing recently and a friend pointed me in the direction of a great little company which designs and hand-finishes gorgeous convex mirrors. They've a gift service so you can buy the mirror (and you get a presentation gift box) and the couple can choose the finish/colour. Was brilliant and my friends absolutely adore it (I would never have chosen teal colour!). The company was called Omelo Mirrors ( Couldn't recommend highly enough if you're looking for a unique wedding gift!
