So in case you don’t follow me on social media or missed my post from a few weeks ago, James’ sister Danielle got engaged! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Danielle for the three years I’ve been dating her brother and consider her a close friend of mine. This past weekend she actually asked me to be her bridesmaid, which makes me even more excited for her next-fall nuptials. All this wedding buzz has me browsing Pinterest and wedding blogs for fun ideas, gowns I think she would look good in and bachelorette party ideas. So prepare for the occasional wedding-themed post on here over the next year.
First up- engagement gifts. While some couples throw extravagant engagement parties to celebrate, others keep it more low-key. Either way, if your BFF, cousin or co-worker gets engaged, the nice thing to do is get her a small gift. Whether it’s something small like a bridal magazine (to help inspire them with wedding ideas) or a custom piece of “mrs” jewelry, they’re sure to appreciate it. My favorites are below- including a lovely picture frame with your favorite photo of the couple and the perfect ring holder.
