Congrats, you’re engaged!! Surely, you’re well on your way to planning the wedding of your dreams. We know how difficult and stressful it can be to plan a wedding. Even though your wedding planning is amazing it’s important to have a stellar wedding party to help as well! Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are your closest and most-trusted group of friends and family members. They will know exactly how to help ensure your big day goes off without a hitch! Because they’ve been supporting you and celebrating with you for months, they deserve a special thank you to show your appreciation. Designer Weddings has a few awesome gift ideas to properly thank the wedding party:
Flannels for the girls:
If you’re getting married this winter, consider gifting your bridesmaids comfortable flannels to get ready in. This will offer you and your girls the cutest, coziest photos while getting ready for your special day. Not only is this flannel the perfect look to make your memories in, it’s actually useful too! All of your girls will be able to keep their hair and makeup perfectly intact with the button down style of this top.
Gifts for a destination wedding:
These gift ideas will be fun and useful for the wedding party if you’re planning a destination wedding. If you’re heading to a sunny location, then gift everyone in the wedding party high-quality sunglasses to wear all week. We’re not talking the cheap sunglasses you can purchase by the hundreds for every wedding guest as a favor. These sunglasses are fashionable and will become everyone’s new go-to pair! Another option to get the party started before you even get your plane is a cooler for everyone. Coolers are useful no matter what your destination is, but especially perfect for a day of golf, on the beach or by the pool. Then, your friends will have something that will be utilized at outdoor events for years to come.
Gift baskets for everyone:
Gift baskets are a great option for the whole wedding party! Of course, you can take the liberty to get as creative as you’d like with this. If you’re a lover of DIY crafts, head to Pinterest to get ideas for gift baskets, perfectly curated for all of your friends and family! This will make an awesome and fun date night for you and your fiancé in the midst of wedding planning. However, if you’re not as crafty, then pick a gourmet basket filled with all kinds of treats. No matter if they have a sweet tooth or are more of a savory person, both your bridesmaids and groomsmen will be excited to receive this!
If you want to give your guys and gals a timeless gift, then head to your local jeweller. Designer Weddings suggests picking out a simple, dainty necklace for the girls and cufflinks for the guys. These are gifts that can be worn on your big day, so your wedding party doesn’t have to worry about these small details. Add a handwritten thank you note, recognizing each person for something they did in these months of planning. Let them know that they made your wedding unforgettable!
