With spring wedding season right around the corner, my inbox and DMs are beginning to fill with questions revolving around two wedding-related topics in particular: attire and gifting. Since these are two of my favorite subjects and I have a soft spot in my heart for weddings, I’ll be sharing a handful of posts on these topics over the coming weeks! This first post is for my spring bride readers who are wrapping up the last few items on their to-do lists and eagerly counting down to their special days at the time they’re reading this.
When I think back on the last few weeks before my own wedding, choosing the perfect gifts for my bridesmaids was one of my top priorities. While your wedding is ultimately about you and your partner getting married, it is a special day for the many people who love and support you on your journey as well. Asking someone to stand by you as a bridesmaid is the first way to honor them and the role they’ve played in your lives, but that admittedly comes with its own responsibilities and expectations (joyful as those things may be). A meaningful gift, on the other hand, is all about them–thanking them, expressing how much you value them, and showing them love through something selected especially for them. My favorite types of bridesmaids gifts fall into a handful of categories, which I’ve listed below. My best tip: rather than opting for the exact same gift for all the women in your bridal party, I love the idea of selecting an individual gift for each person from the same category, or choosing a type of gift that can be personalized for each person. Let these ideas be a starting point for selecting a thank you gift to make each of your bridesmaids feel known, loved, and appreciated during this memorable time in your life!
Jewelry: select a unique piece for each bridesmaid that reflects her personality
Accessories: choose a different accessory for each girl, inspired by her personal style
Monogrammed Gifts: mark any of these sweet selections with her individual monogram
Something Cozy: match each girl with a cozy gift in her favorite color
