Your wedding day is thought to be one of the most exciting and memorable days of your life, so sometimes it can take a small army to make sure everything goes perfectly! Your biggest support team during the crazy months of preparation is going to be your bridesmaids and groomsmen, so it’s important to keep them in mind when planning. Thoughtful wedding party gifts can show appreciation for the loved ones who keep you sane until the day you say “I do.” Hopefully, this list of ideas will make your gift giving a little less stressful!
For the Bridesmaids
Your favorite ladies have always been your emotional rock and will continue to be throughout this process, so it’s important to give them something that will truly communicate how much their friendship means to you. Personalized travel bags, matching robes, jewelry, etc. are usually the go-to, but finding a way to incorporate shared memories or inside jokes into your gifts will let each woman know that your friendship is unique and valued.
If you’re feeling creative, a personalized tote filled with ‘spa day’ goodies is a cute (and probably much needed) gift. This DIY bag can be altered to each woman’s specific fragrance/flavor/color preferences, and is the perfect way to unwind after the festivities! If you’re having trouble, Pinterest is always a go-to for inspiration.
For the Groomsmen
Men are almost always tricky to get gifts for, no matter what the occasion might be. Customized groomsmen boxes and alcohol-related gifts are typically the most popular, but there are a number of ways to personalize your gift to make it special for your hubby’s crew! Check out these personalized Pilsner glasses, or treat them to some sophisticated, monogrammed travel bags, or duffle bags.
Matching sunglasses is a unique gift idea that can be fun for the whole wedding party! Not only will they make for some awesome group photos, but they’re also practical and can be used for years to come. Companies like Warby Parker offer bulk ordering for wedding parties, and their simple and affordable process will make this gift one that everyone (and your wallet) will love!
