Make your girls feel special with a meaningful present
Your bridesmaids play a crucial role in your wedding, so show your appreciation with fun and thoughtful gifts that are sure to make them feel special.
Your bridesmaids put a lot of effort into your wedding day; from organising a fantastic hen do and helping you choose the perfect dress, to providing a shoulder to cry on when it all gets too much and, of course, being there to accompany you down the aisle on your big day. A thoughtful gift is the perfect way to show your appreciation for your girls’ love and support, and there are some great ideas out there.
Jewellery is always a great gift, particularly when it can double up as something that can be worn on the wedding day itself. There are loads of great jewellery gift options out there, from simple monogram necklaces to sparkly diamond earrings and charm bracelets with a wedding-themed charm – choose something that’s meaningful and that you know your bridesmaids will love.
Personalisation is always a good way to go if you’re looking for a thoughtful gift. Fluffy robes or silky kimonos with your girls’ names embroidered on them are sure to go down well, and they also have the added bonus of looking great in your getting ready photographs. If you’re not keen on robes, how about some cute monogrammed PJ short sets?
A photo says a thousand words, as the old saying goes, so present your bridesmaids with a special photo in a beautiful frame that they can treasure as a permanent memento of your friendship and your big day. Choose a favourite snap from the hen do, a photo of you all getting ready on the big day itself, or maybe a professional shot of you all in your finery at Crondon’s wedding venue.
If you can’t decide on a present, why not make goodie bags and treat your maids to a selection of gifts? It’s totally up to you what you include in the bags, but chocolates, jewellery, pamper products, make up, wine charms, and bottles of bubbly would all work really well. To make the gifts extra special, present them in a stylish tote bag personalised with each girl’s name.
Rest and relaxation
After all that hard work, your best girls deserve a little rest and relaxation so why not treat them to a spa day or relaxing beauty treatment? If your budget won’t stretch that far you could always opt for a DIY version. A luxurious spa kit with fancy bath salts, a face mask, silky body lotion, a nail file, nail polish and an invigorating foot scrub, is an effective (and budget-friendly) way to make your maids feel pampered and appreciated.
Say it with words
Sometimes the best gifts are the simplest ones, and a heartfelt message can go a long way. Purchasing each of your bridesmaids a pretty notebook and writing a personalised thank you letter inside will mean so much more than a standard gift, and will provide them with a special, personal memento that they are sure to treasure forever.
Thanking your bridesmaids for all their support doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. A fun and creative gift that has thought and meaning behind it will ensure that the most important girls in your life feel loved and appreciated. It will also give them a permanent reminder of your special day.
