Just say Yes: Allude Wedding Gift Guide for Couples and Guests
Which dress? The white or the nude-coloured high-heels? Should you wear your hair up or down? Weddings may be the most beautiful things in the world, but when it comes to planning one’s outfit, the upcoming event can put you in despair weeks in advance. As if choosing your outfit wasn’t challenging enough, there’s also the question of the perfect wedding gift. Sleepless nights and eye-bags? Forget about it! Allude’s gift guide ideas will not only make the bride radiant with happiness but also ourselves. Finally we can easily make up for lost beauty sleep until the big day has arrived.
Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Mule
For most people this is just some pretty shoe. For fans of Miranda, Samantha, Carrie and Charlotte it is the shoe par excellence. Instead of putting a ring on Carrie’s finger, Mr. Big in “Sex and the City: The Movie” simply uses one of her Hangisi pumps to propose. So in future we no longer need to put on a pink tutu for the ultimate Carrie Bradshaw feel. The special feature of the flat version: the mules are not only quite comfortable, but a perfect match for jeans and dresses alike.
Allude Cashmere Refresher
To ensure your love for your cashmere sweater will be ever lasting, it needs a bit of tender loving care. For example, in the form of the Allude Refresher, developed in collaboration with Speick Naturkosmetik. The gentle spray with lavender oil will quickly freshen up your favourite pieces between washes. The handy spray is particularly useful on travels. Simply spray some of it on the hotel linens, and the pleasant fragrance will give any room the feel of “home sweet home”.
“Hammershøi” vase by Kähler
The long-established Danish company Kähler has been known for fine ceramics from the North since 1889. To this day, 175 years after its founding, tradition and craftsmanship are held in high regard, and all pieces are still made by hand – yet they are anything but old-fashioned. With its classic shape, subtle lines and modern pastel colour, the vase “Hammershøi” is the perfect answer to the question of which is the right vase for the bridal bouquet after the celebration.
Macaroons from Ladurée
A trip to Paris just isn’t complete without a visit to one of the cafés of the hip French bakery Ladurée. Those who can’t make it to France, however, don’t have to wait. Simply order the delicious macaroons in the online shop and have them delivered to your home. Our favourite flavours: salted butter caramel, pistachio, orange blossom and rose petal. It’s best to order two boxes at once. The risk is simply too high that you won’t be able to resist the temptation of the deliciously bright confections and end up without a wedding present.
Jo Malon Nectarine Blossom & Honey Wild Rose Cologne (Bridal Lace Collection)
Hardly anything is associated more with a special event than a fragrance. So why not match the right scent to the big event? The British luxury company Jo Malone was inspired to create an exclusive bridal collection. The flask for the cologne “Nectarine Blossom & Honey”, which smells of spring flowers, acacia honey, and fruity nectarine, is wrapped in delicate lace.
Allude Cashmere Dress
What the little black dress is for women, this dress from Allude is for little girls. Made of fine cashmere in a combination of flat knit and waffle stitch pattern, and embellished with a decorative button band, it fits every occasion and event. Thanks to its A-line shape, the dress is as comfortable as a sweater, but looks as elegant as Mama’s version. As a wedding gift it could also become a perfect lifesaver in case of a mishap involving the wedding cake. Post your mother/dautghter looks to Instagram and link to @allude_cashmere.
