Wedding Wednesdays | Virginia is for Lovers Gift Bag Ideas

Almost two years ago, my best friend asked me to marry him on the steps of the Virginia state capitol. Soon, I was in full-blown planning mode dreaming up the details of our perfect, very Virginia wedding. Every detail of our wedding had a distinctly Virginia flavor to it, from my bachelorette party in Charlottesville to our rehearsal dinner at the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond to our wedding favors — yellow grits from Byrd Mill in Ashland. It was a “Very Virginia Wedding” indeed! (You can read more about our big day by clicking here and here!)

View More: is something special about being able to weave in the heritage and culture you so love into your wedding day. My husband and I are both from Virginia, so we knew from the beginning we wanted a taste of the Commonwealth at every junction. And, I know I am not the only Virginia girl who wanted her wedding to reflect where she grew up.

That’s why I am loving the newly revamped Virginia is for Lovers Gift Shop as THE resource for gift bag items for your out-of-town guests.Here are a few of my favorite Virginia is for Lovers themed gifts for your wedding guests — and a few bonus lovely, very Virginia guests I know they’re going to love.
