Bridesmaid Gifts Your Girls Will Love
Wedding season is still going strong. Whether you’re getting married, in a wedding or just attending, you’ll more than likely be giving and/or receiving gifts. Picking out the perfect gift that’s both useful and also meaningful can be overwhelming, so I’m here to help! First and foremost, I’m a fan of gifts with meaning. I would so much rather give and receive gifts that have a personal touch, tug on heartstrings and make the recipient feel special.
Kurt and I got married last September and all weekend long, everyone from our wedding planner to our guests commented on what a sweet, loving and joyful community we are surrounded by. We couldn't agree more and that started with our bridal party. We were both intentional about who would stand by our side in the chapel as we committed to forever. Each of our bridesmaids and groomsmen were friends we chose to be witnesses to our marriage and commit to supporting us, loving us and holding us accountable as husband and wife. It wasn't something we took lightly. These people are our squad, the friends we consider family - and we seriously are blessed with the best so we wanted our wedding weekend to reflect that. Our community is so important to us and our marriage won’t be successful without them, so our hope was to direct some of the spotlight on them. An easy way to make sure your squad feels special on your big day is through gifts. Gift giving is one of both of our love languages so it’s our very favorite way to love on our people well.
For the Bridesmaids
Personally, I loved putting together a whole bag full of goodies for my girls. Since our wedding was a destination wedding, I packed a cute beach bag full of things like pajamas, jewelry, turkish towels, champagne and more. Below are some fun ideas for your best girls:
For the Groomsmen
Now that you have the bridesmaids down, help your groom out with gifts for his guys. I loved Kurt’s gift to his groomsmen on our wedding day. He gave personalized leather journals to each groomsman and a personalized leather Bible to his best man. Below are a few other ideas for the guys:
For the Bride & Groom
For the rest of you looking for a gift for the bride & groom, personal and meaningful options are endless! There’s certainly a time and place for picking a gift from the registry, but even then you can add a personal touch. I love the idea of anything personalized with the couple’s wedding date, new last name, wedding verse or coordinates of the ceremony location. Some of my favorite options are below:
