Our Bridal Party: Attire & Bridal Party Gifts!

My wedding dreams were made of burgundy and navy. With the few photos that our photographer has released, I know all of my Pinterest dreams came true. The colors looked amazing on our wedding day. I am so happy with how everything came together!

When picking our bridal party’s attire, I was very mindful of cost.  For my bridesmaids, I wanted beautiful, yet affordable dresses that all of my girls would feel comfortable in. Two of my bridesmaids were pregnant for our wedding, so I wanted to make sure they loved the fit of the dress too. My bridesmaids wore dressed by Bill Levkoff from his #Levkoff line in the color ‘wine’ with nude shoes of their choice. The waist line and shape of this dress was so flattering. I thought all of my ‘maids looked beautiful!

For jewelry, the girls wore rose gold, including the beautiful tear drop earrings I purchased for them on Etsy. As gifts, I also bought them a rose gold Michael Kors makeup bag {similar here}, floral monogram robes and hangers. I saved money making the hangers myself. I bought wood hangers at HomeGoods and name decals from Etsy. I also purchased monogram robes for myself in white and my mom in navy {to match her dress}. My mom wore the most beautiful navy dress from Bloomingdales. I thought she looked stunning! From the second she tried it on, I knew it was the dress for her!

My flower girl wore an ivory and champagne dress from Etsy to compliment my dress. It was affordable and shipped quickly. For gifts, I got her a keepsake hanky to save for her wedding day, a hanger, a matching monogram robe, a pearl hair clip and a flower girl t-shirt for her to change into after the reception.

My groom and his groomsmen wore navy Alfani Suits – these suits were an awesome purchase! I always knew I didn’t want the guys to wear a tux and I’ll never understand why anyone rents suits. Both suit and tux rentals are costly and oftentimes more expensive than buying a suit. All of the guys in the wedding bought the suits online during a really good Macy’s sale. They purchased both the pants and jacket for about $150. All of them had great things to say about the suit itself and everyone at the wedding agreed they looked super sharp! The father of the groom wore a matching suit in class fit and my dad wore a medium grey suit from Joseph A. Bank {similar here}. We asked all of the guys to wear medium brown shoes and belts {Mike’s are linked}. As gifts we bought them white dress shirts, socks and ties.

My groom enjoys local craft breweries, so we stuck with a craft beer them  for the rest of the groomsmen gifts. We got them bottle openers from Greenport Brewery, Montauk Brewery Long Sleeve Tees {another groom favorite} and a beer glass from Great South Bay Brewery. The best man is a coffee lover, so we gave him a  Nespresso machine. We love ours, so we thought he would love one too!
