This is a guest post by our adorable friends over at BaubleBar.
From the squee-filled phone calls announcing your betrothal to that unforgettable Champagne-fueled weekend in Vegas, your bridesmaids have been there for you through all the milestones of your engagement. Show your appreciation with bridesmaids’ gifts that they’ll treasure long past the wedding day! Read on for our most creative presents below–we want them all!
Full disclosure: We work at BaubleBar, so we’re always obsessing over our personalized pieces. but, BaubleBar’s newest custom options make one-of-a-kind bridesmaids’ gifts. We especially love these feminine lowercase initial rings by Lala Jewelry. Or, engrave your big day’s social media hashtag on the Freehand Script Twitter-Plate as a quirky memento.
A gorgeous silk robe is the picture of elegance, and a gift that your bridesmaids will don around the house for years. We’re obsessed with Fleur Du Mal’s sophisticated short-sleeved kimono, as well as these homemade floral robes we found on Etsy–especially cute at a destination wedding.
A good bag never goes out of style, and these gorgeous, saturated floral prints by Alexander McQueen and Tory Burch are winners. She’ll think of you every time she whips out her cosmetics bag!
Pamper your bridesmaids with luxurious soaps that they’d never buy for themselves. We can’t stop admiring the printed wrappings of these Tokyo Milk and Tocca soaps. An equally sweet-scented idea is a decadent bubble bath with a precious label, like these adorable bottles from The Soap and Paper Factory.
This was a guest post by our friends over at BaubleBar. It’s the perfect place to get all your bridal and bridesmaids accessories for the big day! Check out their blog, The Post, for more style inspiration and to read our post on 2014′s biggest bridesmaids trends.

We’re starting the week off right with some jaw-dropping prettiness that’s sure to inspire you brides-to-be! The very talented Emily Reiter of Anna Delores Photography has shared her magical images with us yet again, this time as a Kate Spade-inspired styled shoot.
The whimsical emerald and gold decor is simply stunning in the cute, rustic backyard setting. The bride and her bridesmaids are of course impeccably outfitted in preppy-printed knee length frocks. It’s just SO Kate Spade. The groom isn’t looking too shabby either with a fun polka dot tie and suspenders. This is one gorgeous styled shoot you know you can’t miss!
