Working at Martha Stewart Weddings means stumbling upon incredible bridal finds every single day. So, each week, one of our editors will spotlight a few of their current obsessions—from a cool stationer to a fresh new baker to an under-the-radar wedding-dress designer to must-have accessories for your rehearsal dinner—to hopefully help inspire your own wedding day. This week, Assistant Digital Producer Taysha Murtaugh reveals what she's loving now.
Being in my mid-20s means that my friends are starting to walk down the aisle, so I'm always on the lookout for fresh, exciting, and affordable ways to help them celebrate their upcoming big day.
Pinrose Petal Packs
How do I love these scented sachets from Pinrose? Let me count the ways … Each pack contains a perfect dose of perfume, which can be layered to create a completely unique scent. You can even take an online quiz to "unlock your personalized scent style"—so fun! Gift as bachelorette party favors or stocking stuffers—but be sure to keep some for yourself. These little lifesavers are my new solution to the TSA liquids law, meaning you can now fly to that destination wedding with a few favorite fragrances in tow (25 petals for $30).

Pineapple Shot Glasses
Here's a whimsical way to toast at the bachelorette party! Get a silver, copper, or gold pineapple-shaped shot glass (set of 2 for $29) or tumbler ($29) for each of the girls—or maybe just one large pineapple tumbler ($99) for the bride-to-be. Cheers!

For Love & Lemons Lingerie
I've always had a hard time finding beautiful, wallet-friendly gifts for lingerie showers—at least until I stumbled upon For Love & Lemons. Your bestie will love their collection of sweet and sexy "skivvies," including bralettes, panties, and sets, and you'll love the price tag: Most pieces are under $100!

Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo
I've been searching for a good dry shampoo, so I was psyched when I heard that Living Proof, one of my go-to haircare brands, developed a formula that soaks up dirt, oil, and sweat, leaving a super-fresh scent. And with a 1.8-ounce option ($12), I can stow a bottle in my carry-on when traveling to friends' wedding events—so important!

A New Way to Say "BFF"
We know you love your best friend, but it wouldn't be too bad to join Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's circle, right? Compare your friendship to theirs and pay your maid of honor the highest compliment ever with this funny print ($16).

Confession: I totally put this on my holiday wish list, and this may or may not be my way of dropping a hint (hi, Mom!). Drilled with constellations based on a Swiss calendar from the 1900s, the brass bracelets would make fun bridesmaid accessories that are both uniform and personalized, whether you're into astrology or not ($50).

These super cool notebooks will give your newly engaged friend a pretty place to start the wedding planning … or you know, the bachelorette party scrapbook. Either way ($22.95).
