Wedding Gifts For Bridal Party

Aug 17, 2007
As a thank you to the wedding bridal party for taking part in your special day it is customary for the bride and groom to purchase gifts.

Gifts are normally purchased for each person in your bridal party. Purchasing gifts online from wedding gift companies can be a great time-saver. If you want to buy your gifts personally then it will mean hitting the shops. Remember to set yourself a realistic budget and stick to it. Try not to let the emotions of the upcoming event compel you to overspend.

Write a list of those in your wedding party for whom you need to purchase. Purchase gift-wrap, although many stores will gift-wrap the presents for you. This will also save you some time.

Do your shopping early - Do not leave your gift buying expeditions until too late. You will be under enough stress besides worrying about gifts.

Depending on your budget, these gifts can be anything from token gifts to expensive jewellery and gadgets for the groomsmen.

Here are a few ideas to help you decide on your wedding gifts:

Bridesmaids - Ideal choices for the ladies in the bridal party are perfume and pieces of jewellery, like necklaces, bracelets earrings etc. Mementoes such as engraved champagne or wines glasses are nice as a reminder of the special day.

If your sister happens to be your bridesmaid there are beautiful statues from 'Willow Tree' called 'Sisters'. I purchased one for my own sister, who was my chief bridesmaid, and she was touched!

Best-man/Groomsmen - There are dainty personalized wedding party gifts in the form of cufflinks available for the men in your bridal party from from online stores like confetti.co.uk. These are the perfect gift. Aftershave or gift vouchers from the high street are also a firm favorite. Men in the wedding party are much easier to buy for.

Page-boy/Flower-girl - Purchasing wedding gifts for the younger members of the party should not be too much of a chore. Depending on their ages, gifts can range from novelty toys to gadgets for the boys and jewellery for the girls.

Mother of the bride and groom - It is customary to present a bouquet of flowers to the respective mothers on the day of your wedding. These tokens can be purchased from your wedding florist. You may also offer a bouquet to the grandmothers of the bride and groom to involve them in your special day.

Wedding gifts are traditionally offered at the close of the best-mans' speech. Try not to forget!

Remember though, wedding bridal gifts should only be offered if affordable and is not compulsory. A simple thank you card or a kind word to your party on the day of your wedding can be just as touching and appreciative than a gift itself.

Your wedding day, your choice!
