Personal touches at weddings aren’t going anywhere in 2019, and including details that give a nod to a couple’s hometown is one of our favorite ways to make the big day feel special. We’ve rounded up a few ideas for gifts to give to the wedding party, guests and each other that include a touch of home.
For the bridesmaids
Weddings are often reunions of friends and family who are spread across states. Gift your girls a personalized mug that shows no matter the distance, your friendship is the real thing. Mugs from June Arbor Designs.
For the groomsmen
Met your groomsmen in college? Bonded with some of them over watching your favorite teams play? Give them a collegiate wallet or money clip that’s equal parts stylish and sentimental. Ole Miss wallet and Mississippi State money clip from Reed’s in Tupelo.
For out-of-town guests
These mini hand-painted wall hangings are like a little piece of Tupelo, and they’re the perfect way to thank your guests who have traveled a long way. TVA sign wall hangings by Ashley Buse from Farmhouse in Tupelo.
For wedding guests
Delicious and personal, you can’t go wrong with custom cookies showing off your favorite local landmark or your Mississippi pride as favors for your wedding guests. Custom cookies by The Cookie Canvas (www.facebook.com/thecookiecanvasms, @thecookiecanvasmississippi)
For the bride and groom
