Planning a wedding comes with sooo many decisions. The venue, photographer, what to eat, the dress, who sits where, shoes…attendants. (Eeek!) And, a great bridal party can be a game changer in the months leading up to the wedding as well as the wedding day itself. These folks have special meaning to you and your future hubby, but they are also there to help. In the end, they will spend time, energy and money to be part of your wedding day so it’s really important to thank them. Around here we offer all kinds of tips to help plan your wedding. Today, we have a few gift ideas for the ladies and gents to say thanks!
Consider gifting the loyal “I Do Crew” stylish sunglasses they can use on the day…especially if you are hosting an afternoon affair. This great go-to option is a perfect fit (literally) for the entire bridal party. Your wedding party will appreciate they can wear the sunglasses during the reception (or ceremony) and have something they can use long after the wedding is over and done. (P.S. Sunglasses make for great group wedding day photo ops.)
You can expect to have your wedding photos within a few weeks to a few months of the wedding day. Gifting your party on the wedding day with a handwritten thank you note, mentioning the gift to come, will make this present an exciting surprise. Plus, this gives you a chance to spell out exactly how each person impacted your wedding and helped make it memorable. Since your wedding party consists of those special peeps (i.e. close friends and family) , they will appreciate a photo to remember the day. Gifting them a beautiful collage or framed photo is a special way to thank them for being part of your special day.
For a gift that’s really out there, consider bobbleheads of you and your crew! You can design bobbleheads of your groomsmen and bridesmaids and get them all dressed up for the special occasion. This is a fun and casual gift, but is something that will have a lasting memory and are sure to bring a smile to their face each time they see it.
The options are endless for personalized and monogrammed gifts. For the ladies, consider purchasing monogrammed items that will help your girls stay on top of what’s theirs while getting ready for the wedding. Bags, robes, or drink tumblers from a site like Etsy offer you great accessories while everyone gets wedding day ready.
For the gents, you can monogram a cooler with their name for future use on the beach or at the family barbeque long after your wedding. Another option for the guys are matching socks or monogrammed cufflinks! (All of which can be used again and again.)
