First of all, brides have moved from the traditional bridesmaids’ gifts to one that transcends their big day. The growing trend? To give their bridal party something that provides comfort for the big day and many days to come.

The New Bridal Party Gift Idea

Rated in the top 5 Bridesmaids’ Gift of 2020, the satin robe is the new bridal party craze. Certainly providing your girls with a gift that transcends is important for many reasons, but think about the pictures! Not only do these photograph well, but they provide your bridal party the opportunity to have hair and makeup done without worry of trying to pull something over their head. 

 

As the bride, you have the option to stand out with robes designed with you in mind. From beautiful sheer robes that fall at your feet to something short and cute with “Bride” on the back, you can create memories of your special day in something cute and just for you.

Many brides take this opportunity to personalize their robes with their future names and even do the same for the bridal party. Gone are the days of mirrors and jewelry as the only gift given, brides are giving gifts that keep giving!

 

You can incorporate your color scheme, take into account the different body types of your bridal party, and even mix and match based on personality.

 

Brides have many options, from matching their bridal party to traditional white. You can have your robe reflect your personality or even your wedding dress…you have the ability to be you!

The Westin Annapolis is a lovely venue where Gabby and Brian were married and they were featured on the United With Love blog for their engagement session shot by me. They are official ya’ll, married! Special shoutout to United With Love for featuring their wedding as well. I had the amazing opportunity to not only shoot their engagement but their historically heartfelt traditional black wedding at the glamourous Westin Annapolis Hotel.  This as such a heartfelt wedding with the blush pinks and whites tied with her beautifully laced oval wedding ring. Can we talk about the attire of the couple though,  her dress was nothing short of amazing and his tux was completely dapper.

Enjoy Brian and Gabby’s  special day with me.

It was truly an Intimate Greenery Wedding at District Winery  in Washington, D.C. where Stephen and Jeanne exchanged lifelong vows.

Finally, I’m sharing images from one of my couples who wed in 2019 at the beautiful District Winery Wedding in Washington D.C.

Stephen and Jeanne had a non-traditional yet romantic wedding that was intimate with greenery, whites, and pops of navy at one amazing winery location. I love non-traditional weddings, it allows me to challenge myself to think outside the box and be creative. The bride wore a beautiful lace off the shoulder dress while the groom wore a tailored navy tux with a grey tie to tie all the beautiful colors together. Their details and colors came together beautifully to show the winery’s charm.

United with Love featured this winery wedding. To see it, click here.

The Carnegie Institution for Science is a beautiful historic landmark nestled between Dupont Circle and Logan Circle in the heart of Washington, D.C. Its neoclassical Sixteenth Street façade lends to the grandeur of one of the most prominent thoroughfares in the city. (Source-Wikipedia)

They decided to do a first look, there was no bridal party and it made it much easier to execute this intimate moment.

Mike and Danielle met in college at Arcadia University. Our paths crossed a few times over the years but we didn’t start dating until I was a senior and he was a junior. They have been together for 11 years.
