It's Handmade Review

It’s Handmade started when they spotted a gap in the market for beautiful personalised jewellery designed for Mummies and babies. So born were their ‘Mummy and Me’ sets. Stylish matching bracelets and engraved charms, that Mummy and baby can love forever.

It didn’t take It’s Handmade long to realise that it wasn’t just Mummy and Me sets that people wanted but also personalised gifts for other occasions. Christenings, Fathers Day, births, Weddings and birthdays.

My It’s Handmade Review

it's handmade review

I was sent out a beautiful Mummy and Me set, to have a look at. I wasn’t disappointed the chunky hearts lovingly engraved with the words I had asked for. The chunky hearts were set onto pale pink elasticated bracelets. Easily adjustable to fit even the smallest of wrists. I wouldn’t hesitate into buy one for a gift.

My only tiny criticism is, although they arrive beautifully wrapped in tissue paper I would have loved to see a little gift box. You are able to add on the option of the gift box to go with your order, so if like me you love a gift that is beautifully wrapped you can.

These bracelets are lovely. I think they would make a wonderful gift for your wedding party, or any gift really. We are now in a time of personalised gifting, so It’s Handmade is the best place to start looking for the perfect gift. My daughter loves her bracelet, she hasn’t taken it off since she was given it.

 

*Thank you It’s Handmade for sending me out a beautiful Mummy and Me set, in exchange for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

 

Choosing your bridesmaids

choosing your bridesmaids

Choosing your bridesmaids isn’t always an easy decision. Sisters, soon to be sister-in-laws, best friends, childhood friends, nieces, cousins… ┬áthe list is endless. Oh and don’t forget the person who you think will be offended if you don’t pick them.

choosing your bridesmaidsYour bridesmaids should be there to help you with your wedding plans. They should help arrange the hen party, be there to help you choose your wedding dress, attend dress fittings, make-up trials, hair trials. They need to have an honest opinion and a positive outlook on your wedding. The last thing you need is negativity surrounding your day.

Choosing your bridesmaids

You also need to decided how many bridesmaids you would like within your party, and give the title of ‘Maid of Honour’. Don’t forget, for each bridesmaid you have comes with added cost to your day. Dresses, makeup, hair, jewellery, thank you gifts. It’s quite common now that a bridesmaid will often pay for elements of their own outfit, shoes or hair. Some brides now get their bridesmaid to do their own makeup, to save on the cost. I even have a friend who had six bridesmaids, each paid for their whole outfit.

choosing your bridesmaids

When I got married I only had my Sister, I wanted to pay for everything for her. Her dress, shoes, beauty treatments and a lovely gift. She did in fact do her own makeup, more because she didn’t want someone else doing it and not getting it right. I also knew that if I added anymore to my bridal party that I would offend a couple of my long term close friends. Which I didn’t want. Plus, we honestly didn’t have the money to do it for everyone. Instead we included them in the ceremony by giving readings.

choosing your bridesmaids

So once you have chosen your bridal party, be it one, two or ten bridesmaids, now comes the fun part of asking them. It has become increasingly popular to use a personalised gift to ask. A bottle of wine, a nice card or a little gift. Etsy have some lovely ideas.

However you choose to ask your bridesmaids, make sure you choose people you love and want to be a part of your special day.
