Bridesmaid and Wedding Party Gift Ideas
Your wedding party plays both an emotional and tactical role in your wedding when it comes to the planning and to the celebrating! Let’s face it, you couldn’t do it without them and you wouldn’t want to. Think about the endless scheduling that goes into this role, from the bridal shower, to the bachelor party, the rehearsal dinner and the list goes on! These party members are working hard. They didn’t just agree to have the title of “best man” or “maid of honor” they agreed to a big role! Besides planning, these special people go beyond their roles and listen to the almost newlyweds complain about their horrible mother-in-laws to be! I mean, they’re practically holding the show together! Your wedding party members truly deserve a little credit for all of this and you can make them feel special with even the simplest gestures. Give them some love and show your wedding party just how much you appreciate them.
- Plan a special outing: Treat your wedding party to a day that has nothing to do with planning. You could do a spa day, a concert, anything, really. You’ll both enjoy the break and it’s a great way to spend quality time together.
- Give a meaningful gift: It could be a book of favorite photos, some playful cuff links or a piece of jewelry engraved with something special. And don’t underestimate the power of a really heartfelt note.
- Give them a shout out: If you’re planning a speech, show your wedding party some love, tell a funny story from the planning process or publicly thank someone who really saved the day.
I promise, your wedding party will appreciate the appreciation and it will make you feel just as good!
