Behind every bride is a bevy of bridesmaids—sisters, cousins, best friends, college roommates—at the ready to regulate an unwieldy veil, blot renegade lipstick, and keep tissues tucked away for a chance of tears.
If anyone deserves a gift of thanks before the big day, it’s certainly them. Here is Vogue’s top picks for the top ladies in your life. 🙂
Fresh’s collection of their best-selling perfumes is now mini-sized and just right for layering to create a custom scent. Just because everyone is in the same dress doesn’t mean they have to smell the same, too.
Designed to match any dress, nail genius Essie’s Wedding Collection: six perfect polishes, from soft pinks to flattering neutrals.
Essie Wedding Collection, $48
For discreet touch-ups, a classic—and refillable—powder compact is an elegant and practical gift. Estée Lauder’s classic gilded compacts and Guerlain’s Deco-ish Météorites are the perfect size for any evening bag. They’re so chic, we bet they will make an appearance even without a makeup meltdown. For a more personal touch, be sure to request monogram engraving, available at select Lauder counters.

For a bouquet that lasts, Vera Wang has partnered with candle queen Laura Slatkin to create a new collection of candles delicately scented with lily of the valley, gardenia, and damask rose. And once the wick has burned, the silver-plated Unity vessel transforms into a keepsake vase—perfect for flowers, makeup brushes, cotton balls. . . .
