My college roommate is getting married in September. She and I have been through a lot together – she hid in the corner of our room in the sorority house when Mr. B and I had our first window chat (he lived in the Fraternity next door to mine – story here). I edited every single paper she ever wrote in college. She picked me up from numerous Greek sporting events that ended in sprained ankles. I held her hand through a few college heartbreaks and she held my hair through a few college nights. I’m very excited for her wedding.
So anyway, I know that Brie’s favorite wedding gift to give is champagne flutes. She loves to give a couple something to toast special events with. In general I choose to play it safe and go off a couple’s registry, but when you’ve lived with someone for four years, I think it’s okay to be creative. So I took my knowledge of Brie’s favorite gift to giveand personalized it. I found an Etsy seller who does hand etching and custom ordered flutes with Brie and Brian’s soon-to-be monogram and their wedding date.
I was super impressed with the glasses when they arrived – would absolutely recommend this Etsy seller.
They’re very excited about their 9-10-11 wedding date – so I definitely wanted to include it in their gift.
I enclosed a note for the happy couple:
And wrapped the whole thing up in my favorite way – in brown paper pacakges tied up with string. These are a few of my favorite thiiings!
Any great wedding or shower gift ideas you’ve seen recently?
