Oh, Muffy! A little bird just told us of the latest trend in “themes” for your Big Day – preppy-chic weddings! Since this will be the most important day of your life, you’ll want to make a smart choice in the general direction and ambiance of your event. You don’t have to be an Ivy League graduate to know there is nothing smarter than taking on the traditional style and swagger of Preppy.
A bit conservative
A bit conservative, but updated with a contemporary vibe, today’s preppy is all about plaids, stripes, monograms and privileged, all-American aesthetics. You don’t have to say your wedding vows with an East Coast lock-jaw, but it would be helpful if you at least had the wedding party decked out in classic preppy togs. The bride can wear a classic, just a touch casual wedding gown and the bridesmaids can wear Lilly Pulitzer dresses. The groomsmen will look dapper in khaki pants with navy jackets and collegiate pink-and-green stripe ties.
Remember to include monograms
Remember to include monograms on anything and everything coming in contact with your wedding. Nearly as important in a wedding as the three letters in “I do” are the three little letters in a lady’s monogram. Monogrammed initials add personality and panache on everything form shirtsleeves and cufflinks to table linens and matchbooks – even the bridesmaid gifts should be monogrammed in a perfectly preppy wedding.
Wedding is here to be your official handbook on preppy bridesmaid gifts. One of our all-time favorites, and quite practical too, is to treat the girls to a personalized tote bag personalized tote bagsemblazoned with a personalization. Perfect for hauling primping supplies to the chapel on the wedding weekend and for many outings to come – weekend getaways to the Hamptons, appointments at the spa, sorority reunions at an alma matter.
From tried-and-true preppy totes made in canvas with bright grosgrain ribbon accents to updated and utterly uptown carry-alls, your girls will be thrilled to have these bridesmaid gifts to have and to hold. Don’t forget about your pint-sized wedding assistants; a personalized tote filled with coloring books, puzzles, small toys and treats to keep little hands busy makes a great choice in flower girl gifts.
