Meet a Wedding Vendor in Boulder, CO: ForTheMaids (5)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with jewelery designer Auri Penner of ForTheMaids, based in Boulder, Colorado! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Hello! My name is Auri and my husband Andrew and I opened our For The Maids jewelry shop about 3 years ago. We were just graduating from college when we decided that we wanted to start our own business. I had just recently taken up jewelry-making as a hobby — learning from YouTube tutorials and experimenting with craft store beads. I had another jewelry shop called Powder & Jade (which is still alive and kicking!) and I noticed I got several requests for bridesmaid jewelry. Around the same time, one of my friends from high school asked if I could make some earrings for her bridesmaids for her upcoming wedding. Needless to say, we recognized the need for customizable bridesmaid jewelry that could be given as a gift and so For the Maids was born!

This diverse collection of elegant and on-trend wedding websites comes to us from Riley & Grey. Such beautiful work! Here’s Marissa, founder of Riley & Grey, to tell us more:

I think what we’re most excited about with the new collection is that we captured some really popular and traditional wedding themes, but in a new way. For example, we get tons of requests for vineyard themes. That’s a tricky one, because there are only so many ways you can draw a wine bottle and grapes.

I like the gourmet still-life approach we took because it’s also something you can’t really do on paper, so it’s perfect for your website. And it really brings in the foodie element that most vineyard weddings have too. Another example is the bohemian theme. I’m really proud of the way our team managed to take something like tie dye, which can get really cheese-y, really fast and elevate it so that it could even work for a black-tie boho wedding. Beach is another theme where the umbrella and sand toy imagery that comes to mind first isn’t really what people want for their wedding. I think the subtle waves in our Surf design get people excited for a beach destination without overwhelming the wedding’s brand.

Meet a Wedding Vendor in Stamford, CT: Groovy Groomsmen Gifts (3)

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Chris Bajda  of Groovy Groomsmen Gifts, based in Stamford, Connecticut. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Mike and I are two brothers, both ex athletes with families.   We both love being part of a team and always wanted to do something together.  So about 4 years ago, we launched Groovy Groomsmen Gifts, a comprehensive one stop shop that gives grooms all the gift options they’ll need and some really good content around important things to think about as a groom approaches what is one of the biggest days of their lives.  We often see the groomsmen gift giving component overlooked given there is a whirl of other wedding details out there, but ultimately, are the flowers more important than how you appreciate some of the most important people in your life?

Winter weddings are as rare and beautiful as a snow-white unicorn.
