Your bridesmaids are your go-to girls, a group comprised of your closest friends and most trusted family members. Even more so, they are the people in your life that you can count on to get stuff done! You know that you need bridesmaids that will organize an unforgettable bachelorette weekend, a dreamy bridal shower and a smooth wedding day. After months of wedding planning together, your big day is finally here and what better way to thank your bridesmaids than presenting them with a thoughtful thank you gift?
Jewelry: A timeless gift
Jewelry will always be a classic gift for your girlfriends. It’s best to keep this piece simple for two reasons – so you know your bridesmaids will want to keep wearing this again and again and to ensure that your girls have accessories to match the theme of your wedding. We love this simple initial necklace because it’s simple, personalized and timeless.
Sunnies and Slides: The day-after look
Offer your hardworking bride tribe some comfort the morning after with stylish sunglasses and slide sandals. Pick out sunglasses for your bridesmaids for them to rock the day after and for years to come! By purchasing high-quality shades with each girl’s style in mind, you know you’ll pick a pair that they love. Make the look complete with cute sandals for them to slide on and head out the door while you hit the road to your honeymoon. Even with all the wedding festivities being over, your bridesmaids will still look the part!
Wine glasses/Tumblers: to get the party started!
We have two awesome ways to tackle this idea to get the party started for you and your girls! If you are the crafty type, head to Pinterest to nail these chalkboard paint wine glasses! Then, each of your bridesmaids can write their name or a quote on the bottom to make them super personalized! However, if you want to avoid a Pinterest Fail then look into purchasing each bridesmaid their own drink tumbler. These are suitable for any type of beverage they want to sip on before your wedding ceremony!
Professional Make Up & Hair: A thoughtful treat
We all know that being a bridesmaid can be costly – the dress, shoes, accessories, bachelorette weekend, bridal shower… the list goes on! Of course, some brides want their girls to look and feel their best, so this may require professional hair and makeup jobs. If you want to save yourself time on shopping (totally OK if you do, wedding planning is so time-consuming!) then gift your girls their hair and makeup! That way, everyone will be able to have the same caliber of style and your bridesmaids won’t have to worry about dishing out more money the day of.
Thank your bridesmaids with one of these many thoughtful gifts. After all, this group of girls has been through it with you during the last few months of wedding planning. What are some thoughtful gifts you’ve seen out there or given to your wedding party? Let us know in the comments below!
