Bridesmaids Take Note! 

When we spotted Laura Donovan’s beautiful handmade bridesmaid accessories, we fell head over heels.

Personalised jewellery pieces, the prettiest hair pins and beautiful gifts. The best part? They’re all for you bridesmaids!

We know the likelihood is, the couple will choose what you wear on their big day. But it doesn’t hurt to drop a few hints!

Over to Laura

Enough of us! Let’s hear from Laura and see what she has to say about her beautiful collection of bridesmaid accessories and gifts. Here we go…

Personalised Gifts For The Bridesmaids

Forever popular are my personalised bangles and necklaces. I handstamp your bridesmaids’ initials into a sterling silver pebble or a round tag. This is usually accompanied by a gemstone of your choice.  Birthstones are always popular!

These make a lovely gift for the morning of the wedding. Plus they are a beautiful keepsake that can be worn again and again.

Matching Bridesmaid Hair Accessories

Another consideration is the bridesmaids’ hair!  Many brides like to go for a cohesive look with the bridesmaids wearing similar hairstyles and hairpieces.  The bride can then stand out in something slightly different!

Do You Love Floral Details?

My range of floral hair vines work really well for bridesmaids. They are extremely versatile in how they can be worn – see above!

Here I am wearing one of my own creations – that’s me on the left with my three sisters!

I handmade each silk flower on our headpieces, using left over silk and lace from our dresses which Alex (the bride) designed and made along with her amazingly gifted colleagues at Agapé Bridal Boutique.

I also made us each a pair of flower earrings, using the same shapes as in Alex’s hairpiece and I gifted each of us a silver bangle stamped with the words ‘One Quarter’ to represent that we are each one of four sisters.

Are You Looking For Something More Subtle?

If you want to cater to different styles, a great option is hair pins!  I can take motifs from the bride’s hairpiece and use them in a more understated way. I can then tailor the number and size of the pins to your maids’ specific needs.

Some Advice For The Happy Couple From Laura: 

“You will have a plethora of decisions to make in the run up to your wedding. Don’t let the bridesmaids’ accessories be a cause for extra stress – get them sorted early!”
