We thought really long and hard about gifts for our bridal party and parents, and this is what we came up with.
For our parents, we got Jessica Rust family tree platters…at the bottom we had their wedding anniversaries, and one one of the branches, we had ours. We handed them out at the rehearsal dinner and they really enjoyed them!
For the bridesmaids, I collected some of my favorite things from Brooklyn and beyond and tucked them into a Fishes Eddy Brooklyn tote…clockwise from the left: flip and tumble tote, Love coasters from Sesame Letterpress, personalized bowl from Paloma’s Nest, journal from Paper+Cup, and postcards from Simply Photo.
For the groomsmen, Chad bought everyone Faber Castell fountain pens…this black wood finish was really slick. I wouldn’t mind one of these for myself…

Favors: Vosges Chocolates
Vosges has been more than good to me ever since starting Brooklyn Bride, and I couldn’t think of a better favor to give our guests than a pair of their amazing truffles! I was able to use their white favor boxes, and sent them a selection of yellow and green ribbon for them to tie on for me and no extra cost. We also included little Moo card with pictures in and around Brooklyn with a little note from the two of us. They were very accommodating and the truffles were DEE-lish!
1” buttons: Busy Beaver Button Co.
Busy Beaver Button Co. is incredibly easy to work with….I designed the pins according to their template, emailed them over, and had pins less than 2 weeks later! The owner even sent me a sample when I was a little concerned with color matching, but they looked amazing and everyone loved them.

Who knew Brooklyn would smell so good? Developed by a neurologist in Boerum Hill, Eau de Brooklyn started out as a hobby and eventually turned into products like soap and eau de parfum. I happened upon a bottle in DUMBO at Loopy Mango [great store by the way!] and am completely hooked! Great as a gift!

five and a half is a brooklyn based bookmaking and design studio started by Judy Lee. All the journals are lightweight, sustainable, and feature the art of some great photographers and illustrators. I got to see the Bushwick journal while at Cog and Pearl this past weekend, and completely fell in love. Great for gifts!

Deadly Squire makes some great products in even greater fabrics! Pouches, ties, trays, pillows, you name it….they probably have it. Check out their goods at their website or at Rare Device [my source for all things fabulously Brooklyn].
