Spring Wedding Guide
January 23, 2023
Spring is just around the corner and so is Wedding season! From shower gifts to best dressed guest outfits, let Mud Pie be your one stop shop for all things wedding. See below for our top picks this wedding season.
Wedding Guest Dresses
Celebrate the newlyweds in style, Spring weddings are the perfect time to wear a bright and fun outfit! When picking out your wedding guest dress, consider the dress code first. Is the occasion casual, semi-formal, or black-tie? For a casual wedding, sundresses are perfect. While for a semi-formal celebration, a cocktail or below the knee dress is common. Lastly for black tie, a floor length gown is required. Be sure to steer clear of any light toned neutral dresses from champagne and cream to gold and tan. Pro Tip: When picking out your dress, make sure it’s not the same color as the bridal party! You can use the invitation as a guide for the colors as well as the vibe of the wedding.

Wedding Gift Ideas
When it comes to gifting we love the 60-20-20 rule! This rule suggests that you allocate 60% of your gifting budget towards the wedding gift while 20% should go towards each of the prewedding events such as a shower or engagement party. Showers are traditionally gift-giving events, so unless stated on the invitation, it is safe to assume you should bring a gift! For the engagement party or engagement shower, the couple most likely does not have a registry yet. We suggest gifting a sentimental or celebratory gift such as champagne flutes or a framed picture of their engagement. Even a set of cake knives and forks to use on the big day makes a great engagement gift! The next party up is the bridal shower, where it is all about the bride! You can not go wrong gifting her items to use during her engagement such as bride earrings or a tote. Initial items as well as gifts for the home make perfect bridal shower gifts. If you are looking for a wedding gift, look no further! Mud Pie’s classic home collections make the perfect gifts. With white details and durable materials, these pieces are sure to last! If your bride-to-be loves to host, a charcuterie board or serving dish set makes the perfect gift. See below for our top gifts this season!
Asking Your Bridesmaids
Calling all brides! If you are asking your girlfriends to be your bridesmaids, we have all the tips and ideas you need. Bridesmaids proposal gifts are very popular and a great way to show your girls you appreciate them and truly want them to be part of your special day. There is no right or wrong way to ask someone to be your bridesmaid, this can be a fun and creative experience! Creating a custom gift for each person in your bridal party is a sweet way to show them you care. We love gifting a beautiful frame with a picture of the two of you and a handwritten note as one option! If you are having a destination wedding, gifting beach towels or sunglasses can be a fun touch. You can never go wrong with a pajama set to wear on the big day or even a cosmetic bag to use to get ready. Can anyone have enough totes? Gifting a tote in your wedding color full of goodies for the bachelorette trip or the big day is a great idea. The options are endless, see our top picks below!
Bachelorette Party Planning
Planning a bachelorette party this year? Whether it is a weekend away at the beach or a road trip to the mountains, these parties are all about creating memories with your friends. Who plans the bachelorette party or trip? The maid of honor typically plans the trip while the choice of destination and ideas of activities is up to the bride-to-be. Weekend goody bags are a great way to welcome all the girls to the destination! Grab a tote and fill it with weekend essentials from water bottles to sunglasses. When planning the itinerary and outfit guide, stick to colors that most people already own in their closet to help keep costs down! Bachelorette party dresses can be colorful and fun. Feel free to accessorize with bright and bold earrings. No matter what season you are planning all the wedding events, Mud Pie has everything you need to make it memorable!
