A wedding day is a big event not only for the happy couple but also their loved ones. Think about those who have supported you both in the run up to the big day. Although your wedding is all about the love you share with your partner, there’s no doubt that the day wouldn’t be the same if not for your friends and family, so what better time to recognise them?
It’s likely that your Bridal Party will have been by your side for a long time prior to the day and gifting a timeless piece of jewellery is a heartfelt way to say ‘thank you’.
Have a read through this short guide to get some gift ideas for your bridal party that will show them how cherished they are.
For the maid of honour
Your maid of honour is likely to be someone who’s known you for a long time, probably even longer than your fiancé and your wedding day offers you the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to your friend. Consider something classic like a necklace, but add a personal touch by having the piece engraved with an inside joke or meaningful quote. With this gift, it’s important to consider the style preferences of your maid of honour so that you choose something special that they will wear often and treasure forever.
For the bridesmaids
For your bridesmaids, consider something classic that every member of the group would love to wear, like a bracelet or necklace. You can then choose to personalise the pieces by having them engraved with an initial or, if budget allows, set with a gemstone. Consider matching the stone with the colour scheme of the day, that way the piece will become a precious aide memoir of the day forever more.
For the flower girls
If you’ve chosen to have a flower girl on your special day, it’s a lovely touch to include them in the gift giving. Consider something sparkly or perhaps enamelled with the colour scheme of the day. A pendant or charm here makes the perfect choice for a flower girl so that they don’t outgrow the gift and can wear it forever. Perhaps consider something floral by design that recognises the role they’ve played in your big day?
For the mother of the bride
Among other things, a wedding is a celebration of unity and the recognition that the family tree is adding another branch. This will be an emotive day for all, not least the mother of the bride, why not spend a moment thanking her by gifting some truly classic, and never out of style, pearl earrings.
For the Groomsmen
Let’s not forget to also hear it for the boys by thanking the Groomsmen . Perhaps a chunky silver bracelet? A truly classic and easy to wear gift that also carries the option to be engraved with an inside joke, initial or simple message of thanks.
Your wedding really is the perfect opportunity to let those in your bridal party know how much you love and appreciate them and really, at its core, what more is a wedding than a celebration of love?
