I am definitely a *classic* bride. The words "simple" and "elegant" are the words driving my vision for the day.

While I'm not planning on including all wedding traditions on my wedding day, the traditions I have chosen to include are very important to me. One such tradition is having bridesmaids. I have chosen three long-term friends and my sister to be my bridesmaids and including them is of utmost importance to me. As an example of this, I had more ideas about bridesmaid dresses than I did about my own wedding dress! I have also spent a lot of time thinking about the perfect gifts to give these lovely ladies to thank them for supporting me not only in preparation for my wedding, but also throughout my whole life.

The 4 designers featured in this giveaway all have excellent offerings, specifically for bridesmaid gifts. Here are my favourite items for bridesmaid gifts:

From SweetSugarBeet: I love the large cosmetic bag in "Park Fountains" design. I think it would be great to present other gift items inside this lovely bag; that way you have a extra gorgeous gift bag AND the bridesmaids have something in which to carry their wedding-day cosmetics while travelling from the getting-ready location to the ceremony to the venue (and for many trips thereafter).

From Mrsdstahl's custom cards: What better way to ask someone to be in your wedding party, or to thank them for being part of your special day, than a personalized, handmade card? These cards are awesome! I love them all, but I particularly enjoy the "made to order bridesmaid cards" in silver/grey.

From Silvermoon: I love pearls, and it just so happens that 3 of my 4 bridesmaids (plus me!) have June birthdays - and pearls are the birthstone for June! Not only will these pieces have extra special significance for the June babies, but they also fit with the simple and elegant theme of the wedding. My bridesmaids will be wearing a silvery-grey dress and I think pearls will be the perfect accessory. I think giving each of them a "sterling silver and freshwater pearl necklace" in the marquis drop is a fantastic idea. I am confident that these beautiful pieces of jewelry will be worn for many special occasions.

From Bathgasm: I think it's great to give some sort of spa/relaxing item as a way to say "thanks for going through this stressful day with me." The "4 ounce lavender bath bomb fizzy" is great because lavender is a particularly soothing fragrance, and I'm sure that my bridesmaids would love to totally relax after the big wedding weekend (which means a weekend of travel for all of them).

So - that's it! Those are the pieces that I think would be great to give my bridesmaids as a way of thanking them for all they do for me.

i would consider myself a relaxed type of bride. i am a young mother so the last thing i need is for something to be too overdone and stressful. simple yet unique, but not too difficult. i am getting married in october of this year.. and i just know that anything i could win would really help. My fiance and i are living off of one income and are struggling very hard to make it. I am a stay at home mom..and i want nothing more than to marry my fiance and live happily ever after with our daughter!! :o)

From the stores:

1) Gothic Rose (Amy Butler) - Small Cosmetic Bag by Sweet Sugar Beet - It's small and perfect for any emergency kit I dream up.

2) June Bride Filagree Bridal Necklace by Silvermoon crafts - I'm planning to wear a simple, knee-length purple dress, so this would definitely stand out.

3) 4 Ounce Honey Almond Bath Bomb Fizzy by Bathgasm - I'd get a ton of these so my friends could relax after flying in to visit!

4) Summer Picnic Sentiments Set by mrsdstahl - They're just cute. There, I said it.

I am most definitely an alternative bride. Right now my fiance and I are working together on creating essentially a weekend reunion for our friends, because we're excited to share it all with them. They're flying in from all over, so we're renting a house. A bunch of people are joining the two of us on baking and cooking, there's talk of a late-night sci-fi movie marathon, and we're holding the event during a major gaming convention. On top of that, instead of having a traditional wedding party we're hoping to have four friends run the ceremony as the executive board of a Robert's Rules of Order-style meeting. We ran a club together in college, so that makes more sense to us for such an important event.

We want to shout 'ni!' at some point. Maybe we'll also use kazoos. And devil ducks toys. I'm pondering ice cream sundaes instead of cake, and my fiance wants to bake cinnamon rolls for everyone. We even figured out how to use miniature terrariums for a scavenger hunt. It'll be fun.

Haha, well from all the bridal magazines I get, I always fill out the "What type of bride are you" quizzes. I always get either modern or trendy. :)

SweetSugarBeet: I love that red pop daisy bag the best. Cute!

MrsDstahl: I like the groovy greetings card.

SilverMoonCrafts: That sterling silver and yellow opal necklace is gorgeous.

Bathgasm: I'd love to try that fizzy scrub with shea butter.

The Garden Grown Thank you cards by Mrsdstahl are very sweet!!

Bathgasm has many great Bathbombs..Love the shop name and love the"Erotic"bombs too. The Halloween Bath Bomb Fizzy Triple Pack - One 3oz Jack O Lantern, One 2oz Ghost, and One 4oz Candy Corn is perfect for a Halloween wedding;)

I enjoyed checking out all of these shops..Thank you;)

I definitely fall into the 'Classic' bride category. Simple elegance, sophistication and tradition are words that outline my wedding planning.

I love Sweet Sugar Beet's blue and white floral cosmetic bag. I have decided on a light blue color theme and the bag would make a perfect bridesmaid gift and wedding day staple.

Along those same lines, Mrsdstahl has gorgeous invitations, the 'Modern Twist to a Classic Style' with the blue theme and elegant bow are by far my favorite item on her site.

Silvermoon's sterling silver freshwater pearl and peruvian blue opal bracelet is breathtaking. Again this would make a beautiful bridesmaid accessory and gift.

Bathgasm's Fizzy Scrub in Bonnet Blue, Warm Vanilla Sugar is the perfect item for the Classic bride to relax and pamper herself.

I enjoyed viewing the four stores and definitely plan to make some purchases in the near future.

Thank you,
Courtney
