It is obvious the bride and groom are the center of a wedding. But, it’s always nice for a couple to bestow their bridal party with tokens of their love and appreciation. It can get tough trying to find just the right gift, but local designers are creating items bridal parties, families and all in between will love.

            Two items from local designer Ellen Macomber (Ellen Macomber Fine Art and Textiles) are fresh options for your bridal party. This cotton canvas city map handbag is a practical and creative item any maid or matron will love. Get one of the colors that complements their bridesmaid dress or put it in a gift bag when you ask them to stand next to you on your Big Day. Grab your clutch, fill it with wedding day essentials and you’re good to go.

For the groomsmen, Macomber offers a 100 percent organic silk pocket square that also features a New Orleans map. Our favorite is the white and blue style and would flawlessly complete the look of a dark navy blue or black suit.

Both of these gifts show city pride in a chic, fashionable way and are an excellent choice to remember a NOLA wedding for years to come.
