Gift Ideas: Your Best Friend’s Engagement

So, you just got off of the phone with one of your best friends and she shared some thrilling news with you- she’s engaged! Although you congratulated her profusely, you still want to get her a little something to let her know how happy for her you are. This is freakin’ marriage, after all! Here at Rhinestone Sash, we totally know the feeling! And we’ve come up with a few different small gift ideas for you to give your newly-engaged bestie.

 

Wedding Magazines with champagne. If your bestie is anything like us, we bet that she’s already itching to start planning! Help her begin by giving her a few wedding magazines- along with a bottle of bubbly. Nothing will make her more excited for what’s to come than browsing bridal mags and sipping champs!

Ring Holder. A ring holder is a thoughtful gift for a new bride-to-be, as in all the hoopla of her engagement she likely won’t think to pick one out for herself. Rather than waiting until the wedding shower to see if she receives one, give her piece of mind for her showers to come!

Bride to be goodies. Now that she’s officially a Soon-to-be-Mrs., your bestie is probably freaking out (in the best way possible!). Share in her giddy celebration by ordering her a tank with a Future Mrs. tank or Bride can cooler!

Handwritten note. Although the art of handwritten communication can seem at times to be in danger of being lost, occasions such as these are wonderful opportunities to break out your stationary! Think outside the box when writing your note, and avoid conventional congratulations by reminiscing on when you first met the bride, when you were first introduced to the couple, a happy memory the three of you share, or some advice or more personal well-wishes for your friend!

Take her to brunch. One of the best gifts that you can give to a new bride is an opportunity to gush about her newly pending nuptials. She’ll appreciate a listening ear, and it will mean a lot to her that you are interested to hear all the details of both the engagement and the planning process that she’s about to embark on!

Offer your skills. If you have specific skills that could be helpful to the wedding planning or event itself, feel free to offer them! Letting the bride know early on that you’re willing to help out in whatever specific way that you are is a sweet gesture that will take some of the weight off of her shoulders!

 

 

Gift Ideas: 21st Birthday

If you have a bestie or loved one who’s twenty-first birthday is coming up, we’ve got you covered on the perfect gift for her! Now that she’s finally able to buy a bottle of wine and order a drink at the bar, she’ll love these sweet and fun gift ideas!

 

  1. Decorated Wine Glass. If your birthday girl is classy and loves nothing more than a nice glass of wine with dinner, then decorating a wine glass for her is a fabulous gift option! Personalize it with her monogram, favorite colors, cute patterns, and more!
  2. Hangover Relief Kit. If your birthday girl is a party animal who will certainly give shutting the bar down her best shot, prep her for the inevitable hangover the morning after with a hangover relief kit! Decorate it super cutely and include essentials like asprin, Gatorade or Pedialyte, makeup wipes, Emergen-C, breath mints, and an energy bar.
  3. Birthday Sash. Before your birthday girl hits the bar, make sure she’s decked out in a 21st birthday sash so that everyone knows it’s her big night! Bonus points if she scores a few free shots out of her cute sash!
  4. Nice Bottle of Alcohol. If your birthday girl is a little more low-key, but knows what she likes to drink already, opting for a nice bottle of her favorite type of alcohol is a terrific and thoughtful gift.
  5. Cocktail Recipe Book. If your birthday girl is a burgeoning Martha Stewart, introduce her to the glamorous world of cocktails with a mixology book. She’ll love discovering new recipes and playing bartender!
  6. 21 Shirt. If your birthday girl is the type to celebrate her birthday for an entire week or month, gifting her a shirt that lets everyone know that she’s finally 21 is the perfect option! She’ll love the extra attention she gets!
  7. “Open When…” Envelopes. If your birthday girl isn’t much of a drinker but you still want to get her something special, make her some “Open When” letters. Include options like “…You’re sad, …You miss me, …Something wonderful happened, and then write letters that correspond with each situation! It’s a gift that she’ll cherish for years to come.
  8. Wooden Letter with Photographs. If you’re the crafty type but want to stray from decorating flasks, wine glasses, or other alcohol –related presents, picking out a large wooden letter in the shape of the birthday girl’s initial is a great gift. Decorate it with photographs from your favorite memories, glitter, and write a sweet note on the back!
  9. Cocktail Shaker. A cocktail shaker is a thoughtful and practical gift that the birthday girl is sure to get a ton of use out of as the years go by. She’ll feel like an adult when she opens up this gift without a doubt!
  10. Cute Flask. Although the birthday girl might finally be 21, that doesn’t mean she can take alcohol wherever she goes! If you know she’ll want to take it on the sly (say camping, for example!) then give her a flask! You can decorate it yourself, get one engraved, or just find one with a cute pattern- either way, it’s going to be a big hit!

 

Summer Bachelorette Party Essentials

With wedding season nearing it’s peak, the amount of Bachelorette parties being planned and executed all around us is anything but surprising! Since the worst thing that can happen at a Bachelorette party is a bout of unpreparedness, we’ve come up with a list of absolute summer Bachelorette Party essentials. Read on, pack up, and check at least one thing off your list!

Since you’re probably going to be juggling lots of cute guy’s phone numbers (as long as you aren’t the bride!) and free drinks, you’ll definitely need to keep your hands free. Who wants to be schlepping around all of their belongings in the hot sunshine! Def not us! And that’s why one of the most important things you’ll need for a summer Bachelorette Party is a cute tote to keep all of your things in one place and make them super easy to carry.

Hanging outside in the sunshine with your besties will be a total blast, but spending too long in a bikini can only mean one thing- a sunburn. Prevent one by making sure you pack extra sunscreen! If your bachelorette party takes you somewhere where outside alcohol isn’t allowed in, don’t let it cramp your style! There are tons of cool flasks designed as tubes of sunscreen nowadays- we think they’re pretty clever and the perfect addition to your party!

If you can bring outside alcohol to your party, or you’re planning on purchasing alcohol at your party location, don’t forget to bring your bride and bridesmaid can cozies! They’re super cute and will keep your drink cold while making sure that your hand doesn’t freeze from your icy beverages. Win-win, if you ask us!

Last but not least, don’t forget your swimsuit and towel! Even if you don’t plan on going swimming, you never know when you might be able to snag a few hours of tanning time to help your bronze before the wedding…

We love the idea of having a summer Bachelorette Party- have fun with yours!

Should You Have a Bachelorette Party For Your Second Marriage?

TEE0FLYWBRD-2TWith second marriages becoming more and more common with each passing year, it is more than likely that you know someone who has or will eventually be remarried! While the bride may not be ready for the amount of attention that she had at her first wedding, there’s no reason not to celebrate this happy, exciting occasion. After speaking with her about her hopes and expectations for the upcoming festivities, you might find that she would like to have some sort of party to celebrate her impending nuptials with her close friends. However, she might be hoping for something slightly more low-key. This is completely understandable, and it is totally possible to honor her wishes while still having some fun before her special day. Below are some fun ideas for a bachelorette party for a second marriage. After all, at the end of the day, a bachelorette party is simply a celebration among friends thrown to celebrate the upcoming wedding date of a woman. In other words, it’s really just another excuse to get together for a fun time with friends and loved ones!

Dinner Cruise. A sunset dinner cruise is a glamorous and fun upgrade to a traditional bachelorette party. Toasting to your girlfriend’s future happiness with champagne will only be more memorable when it happens on the water and against a beautiful sunset backdrop!

Murder Mystery Dinner. The mother of all wine nights. Hosting a murder mystery dinner is a fun and entertaining way to celebrate a second-time bachelorette. Consider theming the night eighties wedding, haunted mansion, or roaring twenties and purchasing costumes from Goodwill to really get into the event!

Girls Weekend/Getaway. Instead of hitting Vegas, take the approaching wedding as an opportunity to jet off somewhere like Palm Springs, Charleston, or Napa for a fun and relaxing getaway. Explore the shopping, try out restaurants, sip your favorite wines and enjoy some much needed girl time!

Spa Day/Treatments. What better way to honor the bride than to spend a day or afternoon pampering her (and yourselves!)? Heading to a spa is a guaranteed way to make the bride forget about her wedding stresses. Just because it’s her second wedding doesn’t mean that the planning isn’t still straining!

Wine Tasting. Wine Tasting for a second bachelorette party is especially fun, because you’ll actually be able to afford the wines you try this time around. With a more refined palate, sampling the different kinds will be enjoyable, and made only more enjoyable that you’ll be sipping with your besties by your side.

Joint Bridal Party/Groomsmen. Having a joint party/shower for the groom and bride together is an excellent way to kick off the celebrating. This is an especially great option if neither the bride nor groom feels the need to go too crazy, and are really just looking forward to the day that they finally become man and wife!

Brunch. If your bride isn’t the type to make a big fuss about her wedding, but you still want to celebrate with her, grab a few of her closest friends and schedule a nice brunch. Cheers-ing to her wedding doesn’t have to be a big or splashy occasion; it can be as simple as great food, great friends, and great bubbly!

Cooking Class/Party. Since the bride and groom may already have the china and other traditional items that the couple would register for prior to the wedding, attending a cooking class would be a useful yet fun celebration!
