Bridal Party Gifts

Thanking our bridal party was one thing.  Gifting them each a uniquely designed and crafted token of our appreciation required a bit of time and effort but was also a lovely treat of a project.  Also, as phenomenal people who have drastically shaped our lives for the better, they deserved nothing less.gift designs

Not all of our friends are gamers, but they all have their own distinct passions, and often geeky ones at that.  In keeping with our theme, we selected a symbol for each member of the bridal party based on their loves and interests.  This formed the focal point of the accessories we crafted for them.

For the women (bridesmaids & groomsmaid), we assembled a pair of earrings and matching bracelet.  The symbol also appeared on the handle of each of their bouquets.bridesmaids bouquets

For the groomsmen, we crafted cufflinks with the gamer reference we found most fitting for each of them.  For all the accessories, the main pieces are clear or black acrylic; laser-etching the designs into the protective coating meant selectively peeling this back created an ideal “mask” for the gold spraypaint, leaving clean and crisp edges.
