cute french wedding favors and gifts by lanvin

I just found these adorable Frenchy doo-dads from Lanvin and had to share: wouldn’t they make the perfect bridesmaids or shower gift for a French or Paris-themed wedding?  Talk about a wedding favor that won’t end up in the back of the glove compartment! Check out more of the Lanvin Gift Collection here.

Have you had a chance to check out Delphine Manivet’s new Paris wedding shoe collection yet?  Now, everyone knows that I’m a dedicated follower of All Things Manivet - her sublime “Clément” duchesse satin wedding gown is at the tippy-top of my “If I Had To Do It All Again” list.  So when I heard that she was designing a mini-collection for CosmoParis, you know that I had to investigate. The verdict? Fabulous, bien sûr!  Like her wedding gowns, Delphine Manivet’s shoe collection has something to suit every bridal personality- from demure ballerinas to funky high-heeled granny boots- and everything in between. You can take an exclusive peek at the collection until February 15th at Printemps Hausseman, then they’ll be available at CosmoParis boutiques around France.
