As a busy bride or groom, you’re probably looking for ways to make planning and preparing for your wedding a little easier. One stop shopping for your wedding party gifts can help save time during the months leading up to your big day. Instead of searching for individual gifts for each bridesmaid and groomsman, choose a gift that every member of your wedding party will enjoy. The best wedding party gifts are always the ones that you and your future husband or wife put thought into, not how much you spend or who else receives the gift.
Treat Your Party to a Nice Night Out
After your wedding and honeymoon, take your wedding party out for dinner, drinks and maybe even a concert or baseball game. Giving yourself some breathing room after your big day will let you focus on your friends for the evening without worrying about other planning details.
Help with your Wedding Party’s Expenses
Being by your side as you tie the knot can be expensive for your wedding party. Instead of an unrelated gift, support your bridesmaids and groomsmen by covering the cost of their dresses and suits, shoes or hotel rooms.
Donate to a Charity
If your wedding party is as civic-minded as you are, choose a charity you all love to donate to in your party’s names.
Give Them Day-Of Accessories
If there’s a small piece of jewelry or other accessory you’d like each member of the wedding party to wear to your wedding, gift it to them. Necklaces or bracelets are perfect for the girls, while the guys wear matching watches or cufflinks.
For a warm-weather ceremony, treat your party to sunglasses. Choose one style for bridesmaids and another for groomsmen for a gift that’s easy to check off the list but still seems personalized. Matching sunglasses make for an awesome photo op, especially for beach weddings.
Don’t forget to include your flower girl and ring bearer in these gifts so they can match too!
Personalize Each Wedding Party Gift
Make a uniform wedding gift seem more special with personalization. Lots of items can be personalized. Travel accessories like luggage tags, passport covers and toiletry bags are both pretty and practical. Or, choose a classic gift like drinkware, including pint glasses, wine glasses, water bottles and tumblers.
