Bridal Party Gift Ideas

Aug 2, 2017

Are you struggling to find that perfect gift for your bridal tribe? We’ve pulled together our favourites here as it’s always nice to thank those special guests who have helped you along the way.

I’ve put together an inspiration board on pinterest too if you fancy a nose!

Bride/Groom

It’s always nice to write a letter/card to your partner so they can read this on their special day.  It’s a chance for you to write your private thoughts and feelings, words of encouragement and love.  It’s a special moment and will get you very excited to see your love! Not on the High Street do a fab range of cards.

Gift wise how about a detailed scrap book of your life together from when you met and big life events? That would be such a thoughtful and personal option.  You could use a site like Photobox to create a photo book.  They currently have 40% off!

You could give a special piece of jewellery, cuff links, a pocket watch, a watch, a hip flask, a photo of you both in a nice frame.  You could have the gift engraved with a lovely quote or your names with the date of the wedding or perhaps thoughtful artwork.  Etsy provide a whole range of personalised gift ideas.

You could surprise your other half by booking an entertainer, fireworks or present them with a gift during the speeches.

Parents

A beautiful bouquet of flowers is customary to give to the Mother’s during the Groom’s speech.  You could ask your florist to provide these along with your other wedding flowers.

If you’d rather something different you could opt for an experience for both parents like a special meal out together or a theatre trip, perhaps a night stay away somewhere.  Try LastMinute.com who offer unique experiences from afternoon tea for two to fun filled days out – they have it all!

If they have contributed to the wedding you might like to gift them a room for the night at the venue and throw in some bubbly and a nice card.

Bridesmaids

The getting ready part of the day is an exciting time.  You might wish to gift a pretty dressing gown/pyjama set along with a personalised hanger for their dress.  Try BooHoo.com or The Little Lovebird.

Little love bird also provide personalised gifts for your maids – check it out!

I’ve seen these gorgeous little pocket personalised mirrors on Etsy

We hope this has given you some inspiration when thinking about what to buy your bridal party!
