Choosing the perfect gift!

Choosing the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids or bridal party is a wonderful way to show appreciation for their love, support, and involvement in your special day. Perhaps you want to thank them for all of the work they have put into helping you plan your day, listening to you or for just being well.... brilliant. No matter your budget you can gift something special, it’s sure to mean a lot, and be a gesture to show your bridesmaid or maid of honour, just how important to you they are.

wedding gifts for bridal party

1. Personalised Jewellery: A Sparkling Reminder of Your Bond

Gift personalised jewellery pieces like engraved bracelets, monogrammed necklaces, or initial rings. These items not only serve as a beautiful accessory on your wedding day but also as a lasting reminder of your friendship and of the meaningful part they played on your happy day. 

2. Relaxation Kits: Encouraging Self-Care and Relaxation

Create relaxation kits with items like scented candles, bath bombs, luxurious lotions, and soothing teas. This thoughtful gesture encourages your friends to indulge in some well-deserved self-care. Tailor each kit to your friends' preferences in scents, colours, and tastes to make them feel truly special and considered.

3. Matching PJ’s or Robes – Fun and a Perfect Photo Opportunity

Why not add a touch of style to your pre-wedding moments? Imagine surprising your lovely maids in the morning with matching customised dressing gowns, robes, comfy slippers, or cute PJs. Don't forget the junior bridesmaids and flower girls – they can have their very own adorable set too!

These thoughtful gifts won't just make for fabulous getting-ready photos but will also become cherished keepsakes for your bridesmaids.  And guess what? You can join in on the fun too! Treating yourself to a matching robe not only adds a dash of elegance but makes for a win-win situation. You all get something comfy and beautiful to enjoy for years to come. 

4. Customised Keepsakes: Cherishing Memories Together

Gift them customised keepsakes such as photo albums filled with memories, personalised picture frames, or custom-made illustrations of the bridal party. These gifts serve as a heartfelt reminder of the shared experiences and joyous moments.

Incorporate details specific to your friendship or to the wedding itself to make these keepsakes even more meaningful.

5. Experience-Based Gifts: Creating New Memories

Instead of traditional gifts, consider giving an experience, like a spa day, a cooking class, or a wine tasting tour. This not only provides an opportunity for relaxation but also for a lot of fun too. Choose an experience that they’d genuinely enjoy taking into consideration interests or hobbies. Plus if you wanted to, you could gift a shared experience to your whole bridal party, a lovely thank you gift and a chance to all get together again after the wedding too. 

6. Subscription Services: A Gift That Keeps on Giving

A subscription box tailored to their interests – be it books, beauty products, gourmet foods, or wellness – is a gift that keeps on giving. Each month, they'll receive a new surprise, reminding them of your gratitude and friendship. Pick a service that allows for personalisation, ensuring that each delivery brings them joy and excitement.

As many brides and grooms-to-be will know all too well, weddings can be incredibly stressful occasions to organise, but thanks to friends, family and, more specifically, groomsmen and bridesmaids, there is a lot of help that goes into the celebrations, from organising hen dos and stag dos, to on the-day tasks such as helping you into outfits, being available for photographs and standing by your side during your big day and so there’s a lot to say thank you for. The best gifts to give are those that resonate with the individual personalities and preferences of your friends. It's the thought that does truly count! With any of these gift ideas above or using this guide as inspiration you’ll be able to gift something truly special to your wedding party.
