Why Give Your Bridal Party Gifts (And What to Get Them)

Is your big day coming up? First of all, congratulations! Getting married is such an exciting and wonderful time.

But there’s so much to do in preparation for this special day - the dress, the guests, the food, the decor.

While you have already chosen the important people in your life to stand with you as a bridal party as you say your “I Do’s”, it’s important to show them how thankful you are for their love and support.

It’s tradition to give the members of your bridal party a sort of gift as a token of appreciation, but choosing the perfect gift can be a stressful ordeal.

Since you don’t need any more stress leading up to your big day, here are ten amazing gifts you should consider giving to your bridal party:

Why You Should Give Your Bridal Party Gifts

Even though bridal party gifts are important to show your appreciation, you may be wondering if they are necessary at all - especially if you are throwing a budget-conscious wedding.

The short answer is yes, you should give your bridal party members a gift. These are the people that are helping you prepare for the big day and deserve some recognition for their efforts and support.

Don’t feel that you have to break the bank on gifts. Whether you can spend $20 or $100 on each bridesmaid, the gesture and thought are more important than the dollar amount.

Think about how much you can afford to spend on bridal party gifts and then divide that amount by the number of bridesmaids. This will give you a good starting point when choosing the perfect gift.

When To Give Your Bridal Party Their Gifts

You can make the bridal party gift-giving even more special by choosing the right time to give your bridesmaids their gifts.

Consider giving your gifts during your bridal shower. While you are receiving your gifts, it’s a beautiful gesture to turn the attention to the members of your bridal party.

If you wish to be more discreet, you can pass along the gifts during your bachelorette party or any day leading up to the wedding.

1. Personalized Tumblers

Tumblers of any kind are a perfect gift for your bridal party - they are useful and can be customized in a variety of ways.

Whether you choose a personalized yeti tumbler or custom wine tumbler, have it engraved with your bridesmaid’s name or a simple image that showcases her personality.

2. Custom Stainless Steel Mug

If the friends in your bridal party are coffee or tea drinkers, why not gift them a beautiful stainless steel travel mug?

Again, have it personalized with their name or something that suits their taste. 

3. Spa Gift Certificate

Whether you want your bridal party to enjoy a spa afternoon as a group or simply wish for your closest friends to relax when they choose, a spa gift certificate is a great choice for a bridal party gift.

Think about including enough to cover services such as a manicure, pedicure, facial, or massage.

5. Personalized Charcuterie Boards

From dinner parties to simply relaxing at home, charcuterie boards have become all the rage when it comes to serving delicious and beautifully displayed finger foods!

You can have their family name laser engraved onto the board, the date of your wedding, or a simple image that encapsulated their style and personality.
