Known for: A thoughtfully curated collection of clothing, home goods and fun gifts that are as unique as the bride herself.

Words of wisdom: "The best bridesmaids' gifts are unique and personalized for the reciever. It should be pretty, but if it's functional , too - even better," says Renee Boyd, product manager of the new BHLDN Seattle, a store within downtown Seattle's Anthropologie. "A vintage handkerchief with her monogram on it is truly one of a kind. A floral print robe not only looks great in getting-ready photos, but she's sure to wear it long after the wedding. Wedding-day accessories are also a lovely gift, especially when you select different pieces for each bridesmaid to help customize their look."
