Are Bridesmaids’ Gifts Necessary?
20 Sep, 2012

If you are wondering whether you NEED to buy gifts for your bridesmaids, the answer is no. But before you heave a sigh of relief, think about what those 3 or 4 or 5 friends are doing for you. They are buying a dress, shoes and maybe a headpiece of some sort. They are giving up a weekend for you. They are attending one or more showers on your behalf and are no doubt also giving you a wedding gift. I believe that you should show your gratitude. If you choose to do this by giving a gift then the gift should be accompanied by a huge thank you for being a part of the most important event of your life.

Appropriate gifts can be jewelry, accessories for their bridesmaids outfits, personal items, monogrammed items or items in their personal favorite colors. These gifts are given either during a bridesmaid’s luncheon, bachelorette party or given at the rehearsal dinner along with the groom’s gifts to his attendants.

More and more brides are electing to host a spa day for all of the attendants. A day of personal attention and luxury is sometimes marred by the conflict of schedules kept by very busy women but most would agree that it is worth the rearranging required to make it happen.

If you have attendants coming from out of town it would be a nice gift to contribute to the transportation if you are able and/or provide accommodations for her/their stay.

In addition, we are hearing of more and more brides sending thank you floral arrangements to the bridesmaid’s place of work once she has returned. People love getting flowers delivered at work, but this of course, depends on the workplace and if such a delivery is appropriate. If the workplace is not an option then the flowers or plant can be sent to her home with a special card attached.

For some wonderful ideas about what to give and when to give it, call us at TriniWeddings.
