Choosing your Bridesmaid Gifts

Your bridesmaids are an important part of your wedding. They’re your people, the closest of the close, the inner circle, the BFF squad. Not only do they stand with you on one of the most important days of your life, but they also invest a great deal of time, money and effort into making sure your day is the best day that it can be. 

Getting them a gift is non-negotiable. Budget this in at the beginning. It’s important, and shouldn’t be an afterthought. When it comes to picking out gifts for them, there are two ways to go about it. The first, is that each girl gets the same gift. Jewelry and/or handbags are quite common.

This is a great idea for a group that is super close. Having something that is the same (with minor variances) will make them feel forever part of the tribe. If this sounds like your “I do” crew, consider splurging for something a little more personal and a lot more permanent. Your sisters are forever, right? They are the anchors that keep you grounded. Together you have unbreakable hearts. (Or something like that.)

The second school of thought is to shop for each one like it’s their birthday. This allows you to be sentimental and choose something personal and appropriate for each girl. 

Whatever you choose, don’t cheap out. You don’t have to spend as much as they did on their dresses, but make sure that you put thought and effort into their gifts. And don’t forget the card. A personal note to each girl acknowledging what they mean to you individually is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Write brilliant prose and make those girls cry big ugly tears!

The Perfect Gift for your Bridal BFFs

Your day wouldn’t be complete without your best friends. These girls are your squad. They have seen you at your worst (and likely have the video to prove it) and have got your back through thick and thin. The group of you are goals for all others.

A standard gift for them just simply won’t do. Get creative, get personal, and show them what they mean to you.

Like a personalized keepsake.
