TO BRIDESMAID GIFT OR NOT TO BRIDESMAID GIFT?

Enlight1707.jpg

We’ve noticed this trend among our L’ezu brides that demands brides shower their bridesmaids with cute gifts to show their appreciation for them being a part of their special day. We pulled a Carrie Bradshaw and “couldn’t help but wonder” if this was really necessary, so we went online shopping. On the hunt for cute gift ideas, we came across this personalized Bridesmaid gifts website, so we thought we’d give a few of the products a spin.

Design me a stainless steel tumbler to keep my liquids cold but make it L’ezu? We’re sold. Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique nailed it! Not only does our drink stay hot or cold in this bottle for up to 6 hours, but now we have a super cute, on brand accessory keeping us hydrated while we work at the office. No need for a coaster, the metal tumbler doesn’t leave any condensation. To be honest, we’re loving our L’ezu bottle, but you can get it personalized however you like! I think our enthusiasm for this bridesmaid gifts stems from it’s true usefulness to the receiver.

How cute is this black denim pouch with gold detailing? It can double as a makeup bag for a quick touchup at a wedding, or even as simple as throwing your phone and wallet in on the go. At L’ezu, we’re most likely use it for some quick fix needle and thread, buttons for any wedding mishaps we may encounter.

These are just some of the cute things we tried out, but there are 300+ items available to personalize and gift on the Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique website. Our take on bridesmaid gifts is that if you feel compelled to do so, make sure they’re useful for after the wedding, because these certainly are!

BIG ISLAND HAWAII WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT

Surprise! After our first collaboration with Sky and Reef Photography's Tara Morenfeld we just had to do it again. We couldn't think of a more beautiful location to feature our gowns than Hawaii. We'll have more details to update you with coming up, but for now we couldn't wait another second to share these incredible shots!

JACLYN + SAM

One of our sweetest L'ezu brides, Jaclyn, has shared her gorgeous wedding photos with us and we simply couldn't help but share them right away! This California wedding managed to look extremely professional and well put together, while maintaining an element of DIY and a personal touch we could only dream of replicating. Just ask Jaclyn about her baked goods: every member in her close family contributed by making their favorite cookie recipes! We wanted to capture Jaclyn's free spiritedness and effervescence in her wedding gown by giving her a flowing skirt line, subtle beading, and a plunging detailed neck line. Congratulations Jaclyn and Sam!

KELTIE + RYAN

We are so excited to share this truly special gown and even more special bride. Keltie knew she wanted to incorporate a vibrant blue into her wedding, and we were more than happy to take the risk and make it a gorgeous part of her gown. Add the magnificent backdrop of the historic post office in Washington D.C. and you've got the perfect blend of modern and classic. Congratulations Keltie and Ryan!

ELISA + KENNY

We may sound like a broken record, but we can't help but gush over our L'ezu bride Elisa's beautiful bohemian wedding. We aren't the only ones who feel this way, as she was featured on the cover of January's 'Destination, I Do" magazine! We are so thrilled to be included in this editorial but mostly proud that we could help create the dress that captured Elisa's imagination! Check out her story below along with the links to her wonderful vendors.

CARLY + ALEX

Our lovely bride Carly had one of our favorite weddings of all time. An artist and designer herself, she worked with us at L'ezu to create her unique, stunning gown. She also handpicked the florals at the flower district and her vision created this magical wedding that has left us awestruck. We can't help but brag and show you these gorgeous pictures!

RIA + ALLEN WEDDING

We were struck by the simplistic beauty of Ria and Allen’s special day. The understated dress we made for Ria was just the right touch for her courthouse ceremony but also shone beautifully at her lovely reception. Congratulations Ria and Allen! You were a pleasure to work with!

This desert wedding is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Our perfect bride Melissa married Edward in a heart shaped strapless gown with lace appliqué. We loved the blue tones of her lovely bridesmaids, as well as the stunning photography by Michael Segal. Congratulations Melissa and Edward!
