This week I'm discussing bridesmaids gifts, what's popular at the moment but also what's affordable and personal. A bridesmaid gift is just a little token to say thank you to those who've really helped you in the lead up to the wedding day. It's a small but important part of the day and it's a lovely thing to do for your friends. Small gifts are given to parents too, and are often personalised handkerchiefs with a little poem or quote written on them.
Chupi has become a very popular bridesmaid gift and in case you're not sure what Chupi is, it's a beautiful unique jewellery company and the owner (who's name is Chupi Sweetman) is a lovely person who's just so passionate about her work. I'm really not surprised it's become so popular on a wedding day! Jewellery is a very common and also a very generous bridesmaid gift, personalised jewellery is also very thoughtful and a gorgeous touch on the day. Chupi has a whole section on her website dedicated to bridesmaids gifts and definitely one of the most gorgeous bridesmaids gifts I've seen! Alex and Ani bracelets are also very popular and they're also a lovely personal gift.
Another popular bridesmaid gift is the personalised dressing
gown that the bridesmaids wear on the morning of the wedding. Usually they're all matching and the bride wears one as well while getting ready. These make for great photographs and certainly add to the atmosphere.
Recently Penneys have come out with a bridal range with lots of bits and pieces. These create great fun and excitement when giving them to your bridesmaids on the hen night, the night before the wedding or on the morning itself (very affordable too.) Things like makeup bags, matching pyjamas, flip-flops etc. A great option if you're not looking to spend a huge amount but still want a little something to say thank you.
The bridesmaids gifts can really be whatever you want them to be, nobody knows your friends like you do. I've seen so many wonderful bridesmaids gifts at weddings, they can be anything from a bottle of perfume to a personalised hip flask! (Jo Malone is a popular scent I see all the time at weddings) What's important is that you get something your bridesmaids will love.
For those of you who are soon to be married I hope you found this post useful! Don't forget that everyones wedding is different and what's important is that you do what you feel is right. It's just a token of gratitude that your lovely bridesmaids will appreciate on the day. Hope you enjoyed reading!
Love, Jenny x
