I have known both Ashley and Mike for about seven years now and I could not imagine a couple more perfect for each other. They and their families are easily some of my favorite people on the planet and I am so excited to be a part of this celebration.PicMonkey Collage

Ashley asked her bridesmaids to be a part of their big day by giving each of us a custom made candle from Bordeaux Mountain Candle Co. on Etsy. (Prior to writing this post I tried to pull the shop up on line but it looks like they may no longer be open, I will keep you all updated if I find any new info.) The candles had the most amazing packaging I have ever seen on an etsy purchase (not that I have a lot of experience) vscocam-photo-1They came in these really nice boxes with lots of tissue paper and crinkle paper to keep everything safe. The boxes were branded very well and they even came with a handy little gift label.

Ashley said the lady she worked with to make these was so friendly and helpful and was willing to make the custom labels however Ash wanted them. They turned out great. I may have to find a way to keep putting new candles in this adorable glass.


These candles not only smell amazing but are such a cute and personalized gift for the bridesmaids. I am absolutely in love with my candle. I am always torn weather to light it or not. I love it so much I want to burn it but at the same time I don’t want to use it all up. Does anyone else ever run into this dilemma? It seems to be a common conflict for me.

I love the creativity that went into this thoughtful gift and would definitely recommend something like this for anyone looking to give an awesome personalized gift.
