How to Pick Bridal Party Gifts for Bridesmaids

You are probably doing a million things for your wedding, but here’s something important you shouldn’t forget: choosing bridal party gifts for your bridesmaids. A thoughtful gift for your closest and dearest girlfriends should serve two purposes: it should be a token of appreciation for their time and efforts and it should also be a memento worth keeping as a reminder of your big day. Overwhelmed by the choices? Here are two tips to keep in mind before you start shopping.

1. Get the gifts at least a month before the wedding (ideally earlier).
The last thing you’ll want to do is to stress out about bridal party gifts a week before your wedding. Procrastinating is an absolute no-no. Your gifts should be thoughtful---not rushed. So in the months leading up to the big day, keep an eye out for possible items. You can always go online and visit the websites of leading bridal party gift suppliers if you don’t have time to actually visit the shops. Online shopping is fantastic; it allows you to see more choices in a very short amount of time. You can also quickly compare prices on the internet.

2. Figure out how much you can afford to spend.
At the end of the day, it’s really the thought that counts. You can’t spend more than your budget allows. If you don’t have a lot of financial leeway, the best route is to have something personalised. Even simple glassware will look extremely elegant when engraved with a special message or even the name of your recipient, for instance.

Consider spending a bit more money on the gift for your maid or matron of honour, since she is probably doing the brunt of the work—from coordinating the bridal shower to organising the bachelorette party. She is going the extra mile for you, so go ahead and give her something more lavish.
