If you know someone getting married soon, then you’re going to LOVE today’s post! Wedding season is just around the corner, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ideas for non traditional bridal shower gifts for the bride-to-be in your life! If you don’t have any upcoming weddings or bridals showers in the near future make sure to pin this baby for future reference!

Before I share my picks, I want to share a little background on why I’m so excited about this post. 5 years ago if you were to ask me what my dream job was, I would have immediately answered “wedding planner”. That dream hasn’t changed entirely, but fast forward to present day and here I am with a blog! One of my favorite parts about this blogging journey is having a creative outlet to share my ideas without the wedding planner lifestyle. I’m a strong believer it’s possible to have it all in life and make all your dreams come true!

Now enough about me, let’s get to talking about the future brides! 🙂

Unique Bridal Shower Gifts the Bride Will Love:

1. Personalized Mrs. Sequin Floppy Hat! If these aren’t the cutest, most perfect beach honeymoon accessory than I don’t know what is!? If you are looking to take the customization to the next level, check this hat out where you can customize the hat to say “Mrs. __” to show her new name. I’m so obsessed with these hats, I can’t wait to order one for my next bridal shower!

3.Monogram necklace with the bride’s new initials is a great idea for the jewelry lover!  The bride is changing her name, help her announce it proudly to the world with this necklace. If she is not a jewelry lover, these monogrammed pillow shams or towel sets are a great personal touch to the newlywed’s home. As a monogram guide, make sure to monogram the first initial of the couple’s last name in the middle and each of their first initial on either side. Example: Andrew & Taylor Howell = AHT

4. A great gift that’ll be used on her actual wedding day is a personalized wedding hanger with the bride’s new last name! I gave my friend Shauna one for her wedding and I’m glad I did. It made for such a beautiful, yet personal way to photograph her dress before she put it on 🙂

5.Help the new couple celebrate all their future firsts with this fun and creative wedding milestone gift basket! All you need to put this gift together is the couple’s favorite wine, order the custom labels and arrange in a basket for a gorgeous presentation.

6.The wedding day goes by astonishingly fast, help the bride and her hubby look forward to a honeymoon as fabulous as their big day! It’s best to find out their honeymoon plans and plan out a gift accordingly. Scuba driving trip, a fancy candlelit dinner on the beach or a couple massage can all be fantastic ideas! If the couple has registered for a honey fund account, an online registry where they pick and choose this could be a great place to start.

7.Mariposa always makes for a beautiful and classic bridal shower gift for the bride that loves to entertain. I love this seashell platterthis pineapple tray & this monogrammed ice bucket.


I would love to hear about your go-to bridal shower gifts!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

With love & sequins, Tess
