Bridesmaids are an intregal part of your wedding day- they support you, help you into your gown, make sure your lipstick isn't on your teeth, and (hopefully) help keep you cool, calm and collected. This blog post is dedicated to all the little things that you can give them as a display of your gratitude, love and companionship. But before we get to gifts let us show you some fabulous ideas to ask your 'best girls' to be your 'best maids' in the first place... Part One: {"Will you be my bridesmaid?"} *image by Abbey Scott We wanted to share the adorable way our White Carpet bride, Christine, asked her friends to be her maids. We love the looks on their faces as they read the inside of these vintage inspired cards. These custom accordion books by fellow inWHITE member, Coral Pheasant Stationary and Design are just fab! We love the bold colors and prints- what a fun little thing to slip to your girls during a night out on the town. Plus its so pretty- they'll hold onto it forever! We love a good piece of jewelry- and what better way to ask you girls "will you help me tie the knot?" in style. This bracelet was both found on Pinterest! We couldn't do this post without featuring our latest obsession- handkerchiefs. What a sweet sentiment!  This version, also found on pinterest, would be perfect to send in a sweet little package for your long distance friends. Look at these cards we found on Etsy- so sweet and easy!   Part Two: {Gifts for the Girls} The White dress by the shore is known as the place you are sure to find your gown, mother of the occasion and maids dresses. But did you know we also have a plethora of amazing maids gifts right here on premisis? No need to stress about maids gifts, we have done the thinking for you! Take a look below to see what we have to offer. *image credit: Shades Shutters Photography One Pearl is a fabulous jewelry line which donates 100% of its proceeds to childrens' and educational charities. The pieces are manufactured in Connecticut and a single large pearl represents the message of giving while looking rather chic and fashionable. These bracelets and necklaces can be made in a variety of different colors and customizations, you can even get earrings to match! If you love a gift that will look great and give back then this is it! Solemates are a fabulous treat for a maid in an outdoor wedding. Slip these on your girls' shoes before its time to roll and they will have no problem walking around in even the most saturated of ground. These tiny plastic heel coverings distribute your weight more evenly- providing a 'no-sink' stiletto. We love these things as they have saved many of our shoes and we are thrilled to now be carrying them in the boutique! This would be the 'icing on the cake' to any bridesmaid gift! We are so lucky to share our antique home with  fellow inWHITE member, Beneath the Gown.  Not only can you score the perfect undergarment for your big day and your honeymoon but you can also pick up some great little treats for your maids!  BTG carries the sweetest hanky pankies with jeweled with 'maid' or 'maid of honor', a fabulous frock for getting ready (also with customizable lettering) and the more comfortable little flip flop for before (or after) the vows. Give them at ring at 860.304.7399 to schedule an appointment. One of the most wonderful gifts around- our Bridesmaids Contribution Gift Card. We feel that there is nothing more important than a maid feeling comfortable, confident and pretty in her dress. What better way to facilitate that feeling than by contributing a portion of the cost of each gown to your girls. We will box up these gorgeous gift cards with your designated information on the back and you can present them to your girls -this would be an awesome way to pop the question! Classic, creative and highly customizable- A q u i n n a h jewelry is exclusively carried at The White Dress by the shore and handmade by our very own, Kelley Solomon. We think these lockets are nothing sort of darling for your maids- a precious keepsake for those closest to you. Check out the A q u  i n n a h website for even more spectacular sparkles, you're sure to be inspired and find something perfect for  you and for your maids. Ring us at 860.669.4596 to coordinate a one on one consultation with Kelley.
