Hi.

The Bridesmaid Box

The Bridesmaid Box

Working in the wedding industry is essentially, as you can imagine, just one unending bombardment of beautiful, tear-jerking, sparkly, heartfelt loveliness. Be it stunning wedding suppliers, emotional love stories or grand gestures of supreme kindness, there’s always something guaranteed to make you smile (and cry. And more often than not both).

Imagine, then, our sob-studded joy when we found out three of our absolute favourite suppliers had collaborated, thanks to meeting through And So To Wed! Ecstatic texts were quickly exchanged, emojis abounded, and had I not been working extremely hard, prosecco would have been poured. It’s a product we’re particularly happy to see launch, and we want to share it with you guys immediately.

Behold, the luxury Bridesmaid Box from Suzanne Oddy Design, featuring some luscious goodies from ASTW supplier Savon Claire and scrumptiousness from the lovely Tiptree. This box is a specially curated pamper night gift set full of indulgent treats, perfect for a bridesmaid who you know is just going to excel at her exciting duties. Think of it as a pat on the back, but less formal and aggressive, and more like the world’s biggest, most grateful squishy cuddle, with just the right amount of sentiment in it.

I’ve extolled my love for the Bridesmaid Box before (in fact, it was one of my maiden blog posts for the wonderful And So To Wed), and this captures it brilliantly. Sumptuously presented in a snap shut box and thick satin ribbon, and nestled cosily in shredded wood, the set contains Savon Claire’s amazing Himalayan Pink Crystal Mineral Soak, and a Champagne Citrus hand poured candle, alongside Tiptree Salted Caramel Spread. (Spread? Who will leave this round long enough to spread it on anything? Just grab me a spoon, and leave me to Soak. For years.) Suzanne’s trademark woodwork provides the finishing touches, with an engraved heart keepsake personalised with the name of your choice, and a luxury greetings card printed with your own message on the front. This makes it an ideal way to ask your nearest and dearest to be your bridesmaids.

If you’ve already asked your bridesmaids to step up to the plate, however, there’s a veritable multitiude of other uses for these boxes – as we’d hate for you to miss out. Give them to your besties on your wedding day as the perfect 'thank you' for all they have done; buy a box for your Valentine; or just send it to someone to let them know you’re thinking of them. With custom designs and colours available, we’re really struggling to restrain ourselves from buying ten immediately for all the wonderful ladies in our lives.

Three world-class suppliers, a set so attractive it actually hurts to not own it, and a way to spread the love via the world’s best medium: heartfelt gift giving. This collaboration couldn’t be any better –thank you so much for setting our hearts alight, Suzanne Oddy, Tiptree and  Savon Claire! Get yours here!

It’s also worth noting that both Suzanne Oddy DesignSavon Claire and Tiptree have lots of other wonderful wedding-related offerings that may pique your interest – check out their websites to see what else they could do for your big day!
