How to Choose Bridesmaid Gifts
Your bridesmaids are your closest female friends, and you’ve chosen them to stand by you at the altar for a reason. Gifts for bridesmaids are usually given either to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids or to thank them for being your bridesmaids.
Bridesmaid proposal gifts can be given any time after your engagement, but keep in mind how much time you have before your wedding so that your friends can get their bridesmaid dresses. Plus, you’ll want them with you when you go wedding dress shopping!
You can also give gifts for bridesmaids at your bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, or even on the day of the ceremony to show your appreciation for them. Bridal party gifts are often a group of matching gifts, but you can get them their own unique personalized bridesmaid gifts too. It’s totally up to you!
Some bride and grooms like to give matching wedding party gifts
to all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen
, usually at the rehearsal dinner or wedding reception. You could each of them a custom glass or small gift set to say “Thank you for being in my wedding!”
