Wedding season is here! Whether you’re attending a wedding or two this year as a guest, part of a wedding party, or walking down the aisle yourself, finding the right personal touches can help to make the big day all the more special. Here, we’ve handpicked a few wedding gifts and wedding day essentials for everyone and, as always, we encourage those who can to come in-store or contact us if you’re looking for more ideas, have special requests, or need to travel a distance to visit us! We’re a small shop so we might not always have all items in stock, but we’ll always have another suggestion up our sleeves in a pinch!
