Virginia Inspired Wedding Gifts

Oh, Dominion State, we love you. We love your beaches, your mountains, your fields, and all of your cities. Today's post is all about home state (or adopted home state) pride! Many couples find their spouses here, many of us grew up here, and so many find their ways somewhere in this beautiful state of ours. When you have a connection, your love for your hometown is very likely to creep up in your wedding day somewhere. If you're a Virginian by heart or by relationship, then these goodies are going to swell up your heart or even cause a tickle in your throat as you dream of dogwood trees and bright red cardinals. From tote bags to calligraphy signs to accessories for your ladies, there's a little something for every gal and guy to show off why Virginia really is for lovers!

Whether due to college or the military, Virginia welcomes all sorts of folks from everywhere... and we hear over and over that because of their moves, these ladies and gents have met their one and onlys!

Custom Virginia-Stamped Coaster Wedding Favors

-- get the goods --

If you're an HGTV fanatic, then you'll know the word "travertine" and associate it immediately with quality! That's what these little coaster wedding favors are! We are obsessed with that these literally will be practical and used after the wedding day because we know how some wedding favors get left behind. Naturally absorbent and completely custom, the possibilities are endless and totally perfect for destination weddings and intimate weddings. (Even the little heart can be placed wherever but of course, we're a little more partial to Hampton Roads!)
