While most girls dream of their wedding dress or the first dance, I always envisioned the details- the invitations, the cake and how I would ask my bridesmaids. Finding the perfect gift for a friend can be difficult, but finding the perfect gift for eight of your best friends is nearly impossible. That’s why I went with the old fashioned test of what would I want? or what is one of my favorite things? I love giving someone something that I've enjoyed receiving.
One of the first gifts that my finance gave me when we were dating was a dainty gold ring, a love knot. When Charles proposed, I received the prettiest vintage-looking ring box from Ali. It was one of my favorite little details from the engagement weekend and I loved having a safe space for my new ring (although I rarely take it off, I always have my Mrs. Box with me!) When putting together my bridesmaid gifts, I wanted to incorporate a small detail that the girls could wear everyday, but also something special for the wedding. The same dainty gold ring that Charles had given me years earlier was a perfect way to ask my bridesmaids help me tie the knot and I knew the gift wouldn't be complete without a beautiful box!
For Ali and I, our bridesmaid proposals were the foundation of To & From Gifts and one of our favorite gifts to prepare!
