You love your Bridesmaids. They are your besties. Your girls. Lifelong friends. They are the ones who have brought you coffee during your long nights of studying for exams. They were there for the tears during the break up of Mr. Wrong. They are a part of all your AMAZING nights out. Every one of your great stories start with them being around. After all that they have done for you, how are you ever going to show how much they mean to you on your wedding day? With the perfect gift, of course.
Ashryla Boutique, based out of Martensville, has exactly what you have been looking for in a bridesmaid gift. Something unique and classic all at the same time. Tammy, the owner, creates handmade leather clutches and shave kits. Her work is beautiful! They make great keepsake gifts for your bridal party, and other special family members. Gift items for your groomsmen (shave kits) are also available. Custom orders are welcome, and she offers the option to personalize your order.
Sask Ever After: What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
Tammy Leonew: I love hearing from brides that the bridal party loved their clutches (or other gift item), and hearing the positive comments they received throughout the wedding day about them!
SEA: What inspired you to be involved with brides and their wedding parties?
TL: My inspiration came from one of my lovely customers… I worked with her to design a set of matching clutches for her New Year’s Eve wedding. I realized there was a niche in the market that I could fill, and now nearly all of my orders are for weddings.
SEA: What advice would you give to a bride when choosing gifts for her bridesmaids?
TL: Whenever possible, try to have a look at some samples in person to ensure a quality product. Look for a vendor with good communication and customer service to make your experience a positive one.
SEA: Why should a bride consider something from Ashryla Boutique as a gift for her girls?
TL: Your bridal party will appreciate the sentiment behind a gift that’s been custom made for them, and can even include a personal message. It’s something they can use on your special day as well as for years to come. What a great way to say thank you… not only for being part of your wedding, but for their special place in your life.
SEA: What are the most memorable set of clutches that you have made for a wedding party?
TL: My favorite wedding was my sister’s! I made clutches for her bridesmaids, and I was one of them.
SEA: Wedding day trends that you are hoping for this year?
TL: I’m really loving some of the soft colors right now, like cream and blush, as well as gold accents!
SEA: Anything else you’d like to share?
TL: My business has grown so much just from word of mouth, so I’d like to thank all my customers for spreading the word. I’m also very excited to be a featured vendor in the May issue of Hitched Bridal Magazine.
