As the blossoming fruit trees begin unfurling their petals for spring, so too are our happy couples preparing to unfold a beautiful new life together as newly weds. For us, spring is the time of the year for last minute wedding errands, when our shop is bustling with future brides-to-be looking for that perfect last minute bridesmaid gift. We're often asked for suggestions... 'What should I give my bridesmaids? It needs to be precious and unique, but it also needs to be affordable, as I need something of equal worth for each of my bridesmaids.'
It can be tricky finding the perfect gift for your life long besties. They have seen the best and worst of you, and now they're there, standing beside you on your wedding day. With over twenty years of experience, we'd like to share some of our favourite affordable gift ideas for bridesmaids, while showing you how to tailor our jewellery to create something truly unique to them.
The Letter & Heart Bracelet
Our Letter & Heart Bracelet at £64 is a pretty way of giving something of equal worth to all your bridesmaids, while also personalising it to match the first initial of their name. For something specifically unique to them, add an additional charm to each bracelet, choosing from our individual Charms and Talismans, and allude to their favourite animal, their love of nature, or their adventurous temperament. The oak leaf or acorn charms are a beautiful addition to the Letter & Heart Bracelet, as they symbolise new beginnings and growth.
The Compass Star and Ursa Major Necklace
The Small Compass Star Necklace at £39, the Ursa Major constellation necklace at £59, and Compass Star Earrings at £49 are a fitting gift for modern bridesmaid who loves minimal jewellery. The Compass Star design is based on the North Star drawings found in a traditional compass. As one of the brightest stars in the sky, the North Star has acted as a guiding star throughout history. The Ursa Major Necklace has a similar meaning, as the constellation is a navigational pointer towards the north star. This design would make a subtle, yet meaningful gift for a bridesmaid who has helped guide you through the important decisions in your life.
The Seahorses Friendship Necklace
Seahorses create strong bonds, and these two beautifully detailed Sterling Silver seahorse charms on a pretty Sterling Silver chain can symbolise friendship or a happy partnership. This nature inspired necklace would be a charming gift to for a bridesmaid, particularly if you share a love of marine wildlife! We many beautiful combinations of jewellery which feature the seahorse design. View our Seahorse jewellery.
Gifts for an Art Deco or twenties themed wedding
For a set of jewellery to match your Art Deco twenties inspired wedding, Yasmin Everley's Typography collection makes a eye catching and tasteful bridesmaid accessory. In this series of pendants, rings and ear studs the Latin alphabet has been taken and combined it with Jazz Age motifs to create pieces that could be chosen as much for for the initials they represent as for the shape they form. A set of matching Love Necklace's on your trio of bridesmaids would look fabulous! Or give each bridesmaid a necklace, or set of earrings featuring the initial of their first name.
