For my bridal shower my mom ordered me custom cake forks and toasting flutes on Etsy. I love little details like this and thought it was a special touch. I plan to take them out every year on our anniversary. We actually used the forks a few days after our wedding for our dating anniversary. Another special gift we received for our engagement was a cake knife and serving set. At first I didn’t think much of it, but later realized what a great gift it was. It was one of those special items I wanted to have for my wedding day and it was checked off my list almost immediately. I think any of this items are great gifts.
Our cake topper was rose gold to compliment the flowers and bridesmaids details. It was inexpensive and I thought it was so pretty. It was made from a light weight wood. You could still see the wood texture through the paint.
Instead of a guest book I opted for a guestboard and I LOVE it. Although I’m not sure all of our guests signed it think it’s going to be really special piece of decor hanging in our kitchen. I haven’t actually hung many things on my walls, but once I get our wedding photos I will get to it.
For my wedding day/night I used a solid navy Very Bradley Grand Traveler. I got it at an outlet for a really good price with a matching cosmetic bag and curling iron case. Although I don’t use Vera bags every day I love the cosmetic bags and accessories. I used the Vera cosmetic bag for my overnight products and the white ‘bride’ bag from A.C.Moore for my day-of emergency items.
