Groomsman Essentials:

Scotch cordials

Craving something smooth and exhilarating? These scotch-infused, dark chocolate cordials are the perfect combination of boozy and tasty. Atelier 

Liquor bottle opener 

Let’s get this party started! Make sure you don’t forget a bottle opener, especially for the best man writing his speech last-minute. High Street Station at the Indie House


This Ember & Valor comb will ensure you’re well-groomed for the big day and that the groom is, too. Atelier 

Beard balm

Everyone knows you’re fresh, but this will help you feel like it, too. Give your beard the love it deserves with Ember & Valor beard balm. Atelier 


Don’t let the bride cry without the groom having a handkerchief handy. The best way to prepare for the happy tears is to tuck some cloth napkins in his pocket. These soft, reusable tissues are practical, soft and convenient so you won’t have to lug around a box of Kleenexes. Annie Em’s At Home


Bridesmaid Necessities:

Pearl clips

A bride should stand out and feel beautiful on her wedding day; these clips do that exactly. They are simple, yet classy enough for any bride to rock and function as a great small gift for a bride on her wedding day. Mollie Paperie

Lavender essential oil

When nerves are high and everything seems tense, have lavender essential oil on hand to run behind the palms of hands or on the back of the neck. BLOOM

Champagne sugar cubes

These luxe mini champagne sugar cubes are the perfect treat for a pre-wedding brunch with your best gals or literally the sweetest start to any toast. These featured flavors are strawberry and arcadia orange. BLOOM


A signature pair of earrings is one of the most important staples for a bride on her wedding day. These are elegant and light in a way that will tie everything together for her big day. Atelier

Lip Balm

There will never be a more important day for the bride to take care of her lips. Her (and your!) cracked lips will thank you for remembering to stick this lip balm in your wedding essentials bag. BLOOM


The bride’s hands are about to held and treasured by the person she’ll spend the rest of her life with. Make sure they are soft and glowy by giving her some Field and Flower perfume lotion. Atelier 


This glossy, reusable plate is a thoughtful gesture to give to the bride to use for anniversary cake or an alternative wedding guest book. It is multi-purposeful and a true treasure. Annie Em’s At Home
