5 Unique Wedding Party Gifts

As a wedding party member, bridesmaids and groomsmen typically have to shell out quite a chunk of dough to participate in the happiest day of your life. Sure, they may get access to an open bar and choice of chicken or fish, but between rehearsals, writing speeches, throwing bachelor/ette parties and generally making sure their soon-to-be-wed friends and family members don’t lose their sh*t, they put in a lot of work for you.

Here are 5 unique wedding party gifts that will show them how much you appreciate all they do:

1. Artisanal soaps, bath & beauty products

Romantic White, Pink and Grey NOVA 535 Wedding

From the owner Michael S. Novilla

To start, Megan and Matt are deeply in love, and what a cute, adorable couple they make. Getting to know them a bit along the way revealed good people; appreciative and genuine. Megan’s father Marc and I had many conversations along the way, and the more I knew Marc, the further i understood how amazing Megan must be – the apple falling near the tree and all that. Then by extension, Matt must be – and is equally fabulous, because the Zudars are quality top to bottom, and wouldn’t associate with anything less. I was honored to host their wedding here at NOVA 535, kinda the exact reason I went all in and spent 3 LONG years of my life converting a once proud dime store (built 1920) that had been abused over the years, most recently a doggie day care (2005) into what we here in St. Petersburg can proudly call our own world class wedding and event space. A space worthy of the most important day for Matt, Megan and their families. So congratulations and THANKS for trusting team NOVA on your BIG DAY!

How to Create a Hyperlocal St. Pete Wedding

Stressing. Sweating. Stitching. Crying. Yelling. Freaking out. Ah, wedding planning. The epitome of … romance? It doesn’t have to be this way. Shhhh, there, there. We’re here to help. Although some couples still aim for an all-out giant celebration love fest with all the fixins (which is totally cool – who doesn’t love a good party?), wedding trends these days lean more toward intimacy and simplicity. The general wedding population is getting a little greener in product selection, a little leaner in budgeting and is prioritizing originality and customization over bells and whistles. More than local, it’s become Hyperlocal. choose venue NOVA 535 Unique Event Space for your hyperlocal St. Pete wedding

Gray, Yellow and Ivory St. Petersburg, Florida Wedding

From the Owner Michael S. Novilla:

Jeff and Christine are a warm, sweet couple that we truly enjoyed working with. They were detail oriented, responsive and willing to listen and learn from our team. We made a unique beautiful wedding together that fit their vision. These are our favorite kind of clients, couples who know what they want – they have a dream wedding, and trust us to adapt and polish it so it works here in the “real world’. We all worked well together and, well as you’ll see from the lovely photos and smiling faces, everyone was delighted. I always enjoy meeting new couples, and working with them when they understand that we 100% have their best interests at heart.

Wedding Sparkler Exit

After hosting over 1,000 successful weddings and events here at NOVA 535, we know what works well and what doesn’t, and in the same breath we believe in listening much more than talking, so we can truly understand our client’s vision and desires. Because it’s all about our clients and their guests happiness, and if you listen, they will tell you what they really want. And if they trust you to produce it for them, you can make wedding and event magic. And we did!!

Grey and Ivory DIY Wedding – Downtown St Pete Venue

Leonor and Margarito are such warm, fun, friendly couple, obviously deeply in love and smiling and laughing and truly enjoying themselves.

They and several of their friends “warned me” that this was going to be a “Mexican Wedding.” (An obvious fact here that I am not Mexican, so I readied myself for quite a mucho fiesta!)

It was a muy muy bien event, and we all had a delightful time. Even with about 100 kids scurrying about on their various levels of sugar highs, they were surprisingly well behaved.

After my travels throughout Mexico, their wedding just further confirmed that Mexicans, by and large, are lovely people. I just wish I had spent more time studying Español when I was younger! Felicitaciones!
