Thoughtful Gifts for Your Wedding Party
If your wedding is coming up and you’ve been planning like crazy for months, you may not have had time to sit down and think what to gift your wedding party. Giving gifts to your wedding party is a great way to thank them for being key players from the moment they said, “yes!” to being in your wedding! I’ve put together a few thoughtful presents to give to your bridesmaids and groomsmen, even some that can be put together last minute!
Accessories that can be worn during the ceremony or for photos, and then again after the wedding is always a great option! By giving a gift that keeps giving, it shows that you are thinking of your loved ones and that you want them to have a gift that they can use more than once, not just a thing that they will feel they have to hang on to.
Jewelry for your bridesmaids is a classy and classic gift; give them earrings or a necklace to be worn for your wedding. Choosing simple pieces like stud or hoop earrings and a dainty necklace in a metal like gold or silver will be timeless for your wedding and will offer your ladies jewelry options for years to come! Another option is getting jewelry that doesn’t need to be worn for your wedding. While it may take more shopping around time, you can get a bit more personal by simply gifting a piece you know your girls will love.
Bring together the bridesmaids and groomsmen with a gift like sunglasses! This is a fun and casual gift that will be great for your wedding photos and a way to bring everyone together.
You may be surprised that bulk ordering sunglasses can save you money and time. You can order gender neutral frames that will tie together your whole party and you do this all in the comfort of your own home. It’s that simple!
A unique and thoughtful gift for your whole wedding party is gifting an experience. Think spa day, movie tickets, or a restaurant gift card. You can get personal by thinking of what your girls or guys like to do in their spare time. This is another gift that can take less than a day to achieve; order gift cards online for your out-of-town friends and drive around your city and pick up certificates for your local friends. This shows that you put in a lot of thought into their thank you gift, even if it takes you virtually no time to do; there’s nothing wrong with that! A friend got a lovely watch for her friend who was getting married from WatchShopping (https://www.watchshopping.com/ladies.html) they have such a lovely range of watches so I’m told.
If you are a Pinterest queen, show off your creative side by creating personal baskets for your crew. They can be big or small and you can take as much time as you need on them, you are in control! This is another way to show how much you appreciate your wedding party and all they do, because this is a very personal gift. If your MOH is a homebody, may give her an “at-home spa day” basket. Or if one of your groomsmen is a huge movie buff, you can give him a basket filled with candy he can sneak into the theater. The options are truly endless here, and this is something that you your fiancé can do together – think of it as a fun date night!
Thoughtful gifts for your wedding party are necessary. The bridesmaids and groomsmen do so much for you and your fiancé. However, it doesn’t have to take a big chunk out of your wedding planning.
Make sure you give them something they are genuinely excited about and says, “thank you!”
