Wedding 101: Surprising your bride tribe!

Words by Blushing Confetti’s Creative Director and Founder, Ellen Powell.

As a bride-to-be, inviting your besties to stand by your side as you say “I do” plays a significant role in the lead up to your wedding.

This is your chance to essentially ‘propose’ to your nearest and dearest for the all-important responsibilities of Bridesmaid and Maid of Honor, so you absolutely want to execute with perfection and do it in a way they’ll remember forever.

Though despite the sky being the limit for what you gift and how, you want to do it without breaking the bank and going too OTT.

Blushing Confetti’s Creative Director and Founder Ellen Powell said her range of personalised bridal boxes have performed exceptionally well since launching to the market in October last year.

“Being a cheeky stationery brand offering luxe wedding products at affordable prices, we fell in love with the concept of pulling together a personalised gift hamper for each person in your bride tribe,” Ellen said.

“A thoughtful hamper of wedding essentials ahead of the big day is something they won’t forget – from personalised pajamas and a mini bottle of champagne to a sweet card or candle, these items can all be delivered in a unique keepsake box for your bestie to hold onto forever.

“If you’re unsure where to even begin, check out our round-up of gift inspiration we’re obsessing over right now that is super modern, unique and sophisticated.”

  1. A thoughtful card

We can’t get enough of all things rose-gold foiled right now, and we know brides are too! Blushing Confetti’s foiled ‘Will you be my Bridesmaid’ cards are the perfect way to ask your leading ladies in style, thoughtfully left blank inside to allow room for words from your own heart. You could even personalise the card with a short friendship poem that reflects you and your best gal’s unique friendship (whether that be with something sweet, funny or deep and meaningful!) for an extra special touch.

Because everyone loves PJs. You’ve likely seen these sported by brides and their maids in the pre-ceremony photos that have no doubt flooded your Instagram feeds, but we just love the idea of being all being matchy-matchy as you’re preparing for the big day! Plus, having something personalised is always super special and your bestie will be able to love and use this for years to come, making it a really fun and practical gift.

We love Peter Alexander’s super cute pink satin PJ set – a great option for the Queensland heat, or Cotton On’s luxe plush gown for the winter weddings, which is basically as soft as any fancy hotel robe without the hefty price tag! Both are customisable with your choice of embroidery.

We are celebrating after all! For something sweet and small, you can pick up four mini bottles of sparkling for under $25 from most bottle shops, making it an affordable and cute addition to any bridal gift hamper.

retail for $6.23 per bottle at Dan Murphy’s.

4. Bridal Boxes

With a selection of sweet little gifts to send to your best gals, you’ll need something equally as beautiful to package it all up, and Blushing Confetti’s luxe bridal boxes are the perfect solution! The gorgeous and affordable gift boxes ooze a luxurious feel and come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes to suit every bride tribe. To top it all off, we think you can’t go wrong pairing a cute gift box with a mix of pink and rose gold confetti!

Blushing Confetti’s bridal gift boxes start from $25.

The team at Blushing Confetti are beyond excited to help bring bride tribe (and groom squad!) proposals to life with gifts that wow! To view the full range of Blushing Confetti’s wedding stationery, head to today.
