Utterly Unique Wedding Guest Book

Ohmigosh, I just love this idea! Imagine your wedding guest book turned into wall art. You really need to click through on this one to see what I'm talking about. 

You Look Sensational Makeup Bag

From our own Gold and Silver collection, comes this pretty makeup bag that will remind the bride every morning: "You Look Sensational!" Laser-printed on canvas, this bag comes in your choice of gold or silver lettering, and the bag comes in natural (shown here, black or white).

Misty Petal Sash

Exclusive to BHLDN, this gorgeous satin sash combines silk flowers, glass beads and crystals for a luxe look. BHLDN shows it as a wedding dress sash, of course, but it also looks incredible on a glamorous pair of wide-legged silk pants.

Bride Tote Bag

Your fave bride is gonna love this heavy-duty tote bag. Imagine it filled with her phone, wallet, wedding planner, stationery samples, fabric samples, and more. Be sure to scroll down on the tote bag page, to see all five Bride tote bag designs! (Plus we have coordinating gifts for each member of the bridal party.)

Wedding Gift Card Holder

Placed on a table at the reception, near the guest book, this pretty mailbox makes it easy for guests to know where to leave envelopes for the bride and groom. The mailbox even comes with a monogram of the couple's last name!

Savita Clutch

Nothing says "glamorous night out" like a petite, pearl-covered clutch. This beauty by St. Xavier will hold the bride's iPhone, lipstick, and tissue pack. All the essentials!

With space for 600 signatures, this elegant wedding guest book offers layers of satin petals, which create the look of flowers. The design, by Ivy Lane at JC Penney, is called Water Lily. You can find coordinating products in this line, such as the matching Water Lily pen holder, flower girl basket, and ring bearer pillow.

Coffee Mugs for the Bride


This pretty mug comes from our Italian Garden Collection (which has a growing number of coordinating products for the whole bridal party. The mug comes with black trim (as shown here) or simple white ceramic. We'll be adding more mugs soon, so you might want to pin this image and return later.

Another wedding guest book. This one is bound in hardwood, with the phrase "Ever After" laser-etched on the front. This would be perfect for a rustic or boho wedding. This guest book also comes with the phrase "Mr. and Mrs."
