There is really no gesture big enough to say thank you to our sweet bridesmaids for all their event planning, help through the planning process and selflessness day-of. They listen to our planning stresses, help cut hundreds of ribbons, put on a dress that may not be their first choice, take vacation days for celebrations and help you pee in a huge gown [thanks Rachel!! ;-)]. They all deserve a trophy! If you’re looking to gift them something more useful than a trophy, today I wanted to share a few bridesmaid gift ideas for all my bride-to-be’s or future ones!
ONE // SOMETHING TO GET READY IN
S and I had a local salon, Bei Capelli, come to my bridal suite to get me and my bridesmaids ready for the wedding day! I knew we’d be getting our hair and make up done and wanted to find something comfy and cute for my girls to get ready in.
From robes to pj sets night dresses and more, there are a lot of options! I debated between robes and jammie sets for forever. There were two things I couldn’t decide on through planning: what to get ready in and how to style my hair. Luckily S did’nt get too annoyed that I contemplated both of these every day for 365 days AND I’m very happy with both decisions I ended up making. I was very decisive on every other thing on our to do list. I’d make a decision and not look back. I don’t know why I was so hung up on these two things haha. Anyways, these robes are such amazing quality and you won’t believe the price tag! They have such a gorgeous floral print, fit anyone from my petite itty bitty Jaime to my fellow tall bestie Taryn. I was worried they may be see thru due to the price, but they weren’t at all!
If you’re looking to gift a jammie set, I cannot suggest Harry Girl Creations enough. She sells the cutest little seersucker, ruffled pj shorts that come in grey, pink and blue. The ruffle detailing is adorable! You can personalize the tank, shorts or both with monograms which makes it just that much more thoughtful. I do suggest going up one size for each girl.
Other ideas would be a nightshirt. Like how cute would it be for all your girls to be dressed in this and you in this? Or what about this gorgeous floral nightshirt?! Having something comfy that’s also cute and easy to slip out of is such a nice treat for your ladies!
TWO // SOMETHING TO DRINK FROM
While getting ready, I knew we’d be sipping on mimoas so I gifted my girls a stemless champagne glass with personalized calligraphy. These gorgeous glasses are by Happily Chic Design. Nikki is the sweetest to work with and I cannot suggest her enough. You can message her on Etsy and mention A Mix of Min to receive a special discount off your order. She went above and beyond to fulfill my order and make sure everything was created to my liking. You can even get a cute heart detailing on each glass!
THREE // SOMETHING TO WEAR
Gifting a piece of jewelry is so sweet. It’s a piece they can wear for years to come and always remember where it came from. I knew what earrings I wanted to wear on my wedding day before I even found my dress. I was so happy when they paired seamlessly with the dress I chose! Since they were by Kendra Scott, I knew I wanted to gift my girls a piece from her collections as well. Kendra Scott is a philanthropic brand that’s always giving back to the community. Her pieces stand the test of time and are simply stunning. Since my bridesmaids’ dresses are taupe/very mauvey blush I gifted them Kendra Scott’s Ellie Drusy Stud Earrings which really complimented their gowns mauve beading. One of my bridesmaids doens’t have her ears pierced, so I found her the matching bracelet!
When my MOH had her baby boy, I gifted her this necklace which I think would also be a very thoughtful bridesmaid gift as well!
FOUR // SOMETHING TO LESSEN THE EXPENSES
Hair and make up costs a pretty penny and adds up quickly, but covering this expense is a very thoughtful gesture. S and I covered this for my girls hair and make up and I’m so happy we were able to. Everyone had a blast getting dolled up! If the expense is too big, you could make little $50 vouchers for each girl and stick them inside card or treat them to just one part of the beauty – hair or make up.
FIVE // SOMETHING TO PUT IT ALL IN
I searched high and low for bridesmaids bags and then I found these for $10… yes, $10!!! The shop owner was so great to work with and had super quick shipping. I adore the calligraphy and the size of this tote was perfect! Most I found on Etsy were either very huge or way too small or the straps were an awkward length, but these are the absolute perfect size! The quality is so wonderful as well. My bridesmaids used them to tote around the things they needed from the bridal suite to the trolley, ceremony and reception,
SIX // SOMETHING TO PAMPER THEMSELVES WITH
I wanted to have my girls feel treated post-wedding and what does that more than skin care products? You can probably guess what I gifted them. Tula! This past summer Tula had the perfect little kit that included everything you needed to feel pampered before bed. This specific kit is sold out, but they have this $19 kit available right now.
I hope this post gives you some ideas on whar to gift your sweet bridesmaids! If you’ve gotten married, Id love to hear what you gifted yours! Thanks for reading Xo Mindy
