While I’m a big believer in sticking to a registry (they registered for it because it’s what they want!) when it comes to selecting wedding gifts for a couple, I also love surprising the bride with a little something just for her. With so many engagements and weddings on the calendar, I’ve been stocking up on these kinds of things lately. The good news is that I haven’t had any trouble finding good options. Kate Spade has some the most adorable options, and I’ve also looked to Bhldn, too. and A few of my favorite things to gift the bride-to-be: a pretty jewelry dish where she can keep her new ring, a coffee-table book full of wedding inspiration, and a Smythson notebook. If you’re going for functional, the best thing you can give her is stationery monogrammed or something fun. She’ll be writing so many thank-you notes that she’ll certainly need plenty of those.

(Side note: Speaking of weddings… this dress is absolutely perfect for spring I do’s!)
