I’m super excited to be adding a new “mini segment” to the blog this season! Leading up into prime time wedding season, I thought it would be a nice idea to marry our #fridayfives with a Gift Guide mini series and I’m kicking things off with the Bridesmaids Edition.
It’s always nice to show your girls a bit of gratitude for what they’ve done for you in the months leading up to your big day. I’ve seen a ton of different gift ideas and here are 5 that have stuck out in my mind:
1. Custom Labeled Champagne Bottle
I loved this idea when I first showed up to Ashlen’s house! Such a cute gift for the girls to not only sip on the morning of the wedding (or really any special occasion if they wish) but would make a cute display in your kitchen! I’m never one to turn down a bottle of wine myself actually…
2. Custom Drink Tumblers
Um, DUH! I feel like this one is a little more popular already, with the endless possibilities for customization, but what a cute way to stay hydrated (or not?) throughout those summer wedding days! Customize it with color, design, or a simple satin ribbon like Hannah did below!
3. Embroidered Robes
This one is a big one, photo wise. As I’m hanging out with the girls the morning of the wedding, it’s nice to have everyone looking the part even before hair and makeup is done and the dresses are on. It’s also a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your wedding photos all throughout the day!
Sometimes certain bridal looks call for matching jewelry throughout the bridesmaids, and that’s ok! But rather than having your girls buy jewelry they may not wear on a day-to-day basis or wouldn’t have bought on their own at all, gift it to them!
5. Monogrammed Wallet
This idea admittedly was one that came to me while looking through the website Bridesmaids Gifts Boutique in research for this post. While looking, I noticed these wallets. I thought, what a genius idea to gift your girls a custom monogramed wallet they can carry throughout the day. I’m constantly seeing girls over-stuffing small wallets with #allthethings they need to carry on such a big day. Not only are the absolutely adorable, but they have so much storage potential I still don’t use every pocket! I absolutely love mine and would most definitely suggest grabbing a few for the ladies who’ll stand by you. Special bonus points that they’ll get something they can use over and over after the festivities are over!
