How Bride’s Show Appreciation to Their Bridal Party

When a bride asks her friends and family members to be a part of her wedding she knows that this means asking her friends and family to make a personal sacrifice of time and usually money in order to support her on her wedding day by taking part in the ceremony and/or the reception.  So it is customary for the bride to show her appreciation for their love and support by giving them a special gift of some kind at the Rehearsal Dinner or shortly before her wedding day. This gift does not have to be expensive but it does need to be a gift from her heart.

Personalized Tote Is A Great Bridesmaid Gift

As the bride contemplates what kind of gift she should bestow upon her bridal party she will find that there are literally 1,000 of items available that would be the perfect gift.  Many wedding retailers offer gifts that can be personalized with names or a monogram making the bridal party gift a treasured keepsake long after the wedding is over.  Such personalized items might include the following:

Personalized Silver Keepsake Box

  • Personalized tote bag  – which can be used to bring the bridesmaids accessories to the wedding ceremony location
  • Personalized Cell Phone Case – the bridal party will always remember the bride’s wedding day every time they make a mobile phone call
  • Engraved Jewelry  – a personalized necklace pendant or bracelet with a personalized charm is always a special bridesmaid or Maid of Honor gift
  • Engraved Photo Frame – the bride can have special photos taken of each of her bridesmaids and then present them with this photo in an engraved picture frame
  • Personalized Wine Glasses – the bridal party will love having a set of their own monogrammed wine glasses to show to their friends after the bride’s special day
  • Engraved Jewelry Box – every woman needs more space for their jewelry and there are a variety of silver or glass jewelry boxes available that can be personalized
  • Personalized Flip Flops – many brides are having destination weddings where the bridal party can wear flip flops in the ceremony and the bride can purchase them with embroidered name or initials
  • Personalized Shawls – the bridal party may need a wrap to keep them warm at an outdoor wedding ceremony so why not gift them a monogrammed shawl

If the bride is a person who loves being crafty perhaps she will decide to make special gifts for her bridal party.  A few ideas for the bride who loves homemade gifts would be candles, scented soaps, knitted or crocheted shawl or lap blanket, personalized scrapbook album, hand-painted vase or an assortment of jams and jellies from the bride’s kitchen.



Other ideas for gifts can be to give each bridesmaid a gift card to her favorite spa or department store and let her pamper herself.  Buy the bridal party gift cards to local restaurants or night club. How about a box of chocolate truffles or a deluxe picnic basket full of gourmet food as a special gift.

Whatever the bride decides I am sure that the bridal party will feel loved and appreciated for helping the bride have a very special wedding ceremony and reception and they will treasure the special gift that she chose to give them as a “Thank You”.
