When you think wedding gifts, you think registries, hand mixers and the good china. But, the bride and groom aren’t only ones that should be showered with nice things on their wedding day, bridal parties deserve a gift just as much as the couple. Now hear me out! While couples aren’t required to get their bridal parties presents, maybe they should be. More than likely, your wedding party has lent a hand and more than a few hours to your big day (and the many event days leading up to it), and thank you gifts are a thoughtful way to show gratitude.

Now don’t take this to mean that you have to go out buy the most expensive gift you can find, more than likely your bridal party will love any token of appreciation. You can even make your gifts, but this may be more trouble than it’s worth depending on your wedding timeline. If you’re unsure of what to look for during your gift search, keep in mind these two questions: Is it thoughtful (Does this make sense for the person I’m buying it for)? and Is it practical (Will they be able to use this gift on or after my wedding day)? If you can answer yes to either or both of these questions, then you’ve got a great gift!

Need some inspiration? Well, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite gifts for everyone on your wedding party shopping list and wouldn’t mind being in more than a few of these lucky bridal parties, just sayin'.

 

Gifts For Each Other

Some couples choose to exchange gifts on the day of their wedding. Be it something to wear on the big day or a tear-jerking letter, it’s a great way to set the tone and share a moment before the ceremony. These gifts can be given during the first look or exchanged via bridesmaid and groomsmen while the couple gets ready.

Parents

Parent gifts are a an opportunity to thank your parents and in-laws for all they’ve done for you. Not just with wedding planning or chipping in financially, but for getting you this far in life. Plus, they are responsible for raising your favorite person and that’s definitely something to be thankful for. And though, this is directed towards parents, this can be applied to found/chosen families or anyone one who’s played a big role in your life.
