Avery Custom Designs

In the last month or so before our wedding we naturally were finalizing some of the last minute details. I started thinking about what gifts I wanted to give my bridesmaids, got those items ordered, we selected the flower girl basket, placed that order and we started looking at ring bearer boxes and discussing the mothers gifts and the groomsmen gifts. 



We decided on a box for the ring bearer to carry rather than the traditional pillow because we loved the look, we loved the idea of a nice wooden box that would also be a keepsake for us for years to come. We are much more likely to use and display a wooden box than a fluffy lacy ribbon adorned pillow. Our wedding was October 4th, early fall and we had a elegant shabby chic wedding planned. We were bringing a lot of outdoor elements into our wedding and our reception and so a wooden box was fitting. After a lot of online browsing I found myself quite disappointed. The boxes I saw were very small and looked more like an arts and crafts project than the type of box I was hopping to find. Still certain a box was what I wanted I narrowed it down to a couple I could live with and I showed them to James for an opinion on which to buy and he said "I can make our ring box". Even better!!!!! 

He came up with a beautiful design and went to work. He is so meticulous and works on anything he does with precision. He spent several nights working on our box, he used two different woods and placed four light wood pieces on the top, he said, to represent the four of us. It is the most perfect and most beautiful ring box I have ever seen!

By the time he had finished he decided he would also make the gift boxes for his groomsmen and gift boxes for our mothers. We gave the groomsmen their tie for the wedding beautifully accompanied by a custom wooden gift box. Our mothers received an embroidered hankie in their wooden gift boxes.
