So, your best mate is getting married, and you couldn’t be happier for her. However, as we know from working with many brides and planning many weddings here at Devine Bride, the lead up to a gal’s big day can sometimes feel a little overwhelming – and at times pretty stressful. There’s lots you can do to help her out as her best pal, including buying her a wedding planner, taking her off to a spa for a little TLC, or simply showing her how much you care by letting her know that you’ll be there by her side, too!
Here’s a sprinkle of inspiration of what to buy your newly engaged BFF…
Whether it’s as a little engagement gift, a birthday present, or just something along the way to treat her!
Wedding Planners (As in stationery!)
The Dream Wedding Planner is available via Amazon from The Caledonia Design Co at £21.99. This luxe organiser is beautifully designed, and covers all aspects of wedding planning so she will feel organised in no time. If you know your bride isn’t the most logical thinker or practical planner, this gift is definitely for her! And even if she is anyway, she’ll still love this!
Amazon currently offer free delivery on this planner – bonus!
Inspiration from the Experts
The Rock My Wedding book is available to buy on Amazon for around £14. Written by Charlotte O’Shea (the founder of the RMW blog), this hardcover keepsake will provide advice and guidance on all planning aspects, and even includes alternative decor ideas. When the going gets tough on the planning front, this lovely book will provide a lovely, joyful and inspirational read for your BFF.
A thoughtful and totally delightful gift for your bride on the run up to her big day, is to subscribe her to a monthly Bride-to-Be box. UK based Blushing Bride do a fabulous box of treasures that will be delivered right to your besties door. For £22 a month, you can sign her up for a monthly rolling subscription that can be cancelled at the drop of a hat. Included in the boxes is a gorgeous variety of useful gifts plus a range of keepsakes for your bride to keep from the planning process. We LOVE this gift idea!
Also take a look at ‘Bride To Be Boxes‘, priced at £18 each.
Sometimes stress creeps in during the wedding planning process. For the most part, it’s a fun and joyful time, however there are moments when everything feels a bit much! Provide your BFF with a luxurious escape by booking into your local spa. A day or even weekend away from the craziness of planning will do your BFF the world of good, and it’s something that the pair of you can enjoy together before she gets hitched. Spa Breaks offer lots of getaway ideas, and often have local last minute deals available too.
Engagement or Wedding Month Gemstone Jewellery
If you prefer something a little more on the sentimental side, then why not indulge your BFF in a piece of gemstone jewellery – something that she will cherish and keep forever. Not on the High Street offer a glorious range of gemstone jewellery, so you can choose your BFF’s engagement month or wedding month as inspiration for your gem choice, and then personalise if you like. We really love this bracelet and necklace, both available from NOTHS.
Lily Lolo is a new British beauty discovery here at Devine Bride. We’ve tried the lipsticks and the nail varnishes, and our verdict is a big thumbs up to this contemporary, cruelty-free, beauty company. They offer ‘Clean Beauty’ and ‘Healthy Skin’ products, only using non-harmful ingredients; this means no parabens, synthetics or nasty chemicals. Your bride will LOVE these products, so why not give her a fresh new look for her wedding, revamp her skin care routine, (coz who wouldn’t want glowing skin on their wedding day right?!), and help her feel a million dollars with a bunch of new, healthy skincare and make-up products.
