Say “I Do” with Sunnies

Now that summer has begun so has the craziness of wedding season! Being a previous summer bride myself, I completely understand how overwhelming it can be at times. Take a deep breath, remember your day will be perfect no matter what, and sit back while we help cross something off your to-do-list.

So it’s close to the big day, and you’re stressing about what to get your bridal party. Trust us, we get it. You want the perfect gift for those special people in your lives that you’ve deemed worthy enough to stand next to you as you say “I do.” These people have seen you at your best and your worst and you want to give them something to show your gratitude (especially if you’ve been a bridezilla).

Show your besties you love them by outfitting them with a hot new pair of shades! Not only will they be in awe of your great taste and superb gift giving abilities, but they’ll be even happier this is a gift they can use for years to come. Plus, they make a great prop to use in wedding pictures. My hubby gave his groomsmen a pair for our beach wedding last July and they were a huge hit!

Get in on the gift-giving fun with some of these great frame options. Give your girls a little bling with these Esprit frames from Charmant, add a dash of color to their life with Lucky Brand’s “Auora” from REM Eyewear, or class it up with a chic pair of Jessica Simpson sunnies from Colors In Optics. Your groomsmen will be grinning from ear to ear in a pair of bold blue bollé shades from Bushnell Performance Optics, classic Foster Grant wayfarers from FGX, or sporty, retro aviators from VonZipper.

While you may not be a blushing bride or gleeful groom this summer, chances are you’re probably attending at least one wedding. For a cute honeymoon gift, give the happy couple bride and groom sunglass cases so they can carry their shades in cute, newlywed style. This set from Astucci’s Endless Love collection is just right!
