And there is no true number for you to stick to when choosing your #bridetribe. Choose those that you know will help you plan the perfect wedding and keep your special day a dream come true! Choosing the way you ask is the cherry on top to this equation! So take a look at these VIP worthy ideas on how to gift your bridesmaids and maid of honor leading into your wedding plans!
Pop the Question Yourself!
Ok, so maybe you can’t buy all your bridesmaids a diamond ring, but you can buy them each ring pops! Get fun colored boxes and place a note on the top inside saying, “My turn to pop the question!” Your ladies will love the spin off of your ring and the sweet treat will be a yummy accessory!
Something Sweet –
Go to your favorite bakery and choose your future bridesmaid’s favorite cupcake or dessert. Have the bakeshop wrap them in individual boxes and add a label saying, “For My Bridesmaid”.
Bridesmaid Survival Kit
If you are asking your college roommate that held your hair after all those hardcore parties, then you know this is the gift for them! Create a customized bridesmaid survival kit. Package it up with a mini bottle of champagne, a bottle of aspirin, a bridal magazine, manicure set, trail mix, and a note.
Write a note –
While not all of our bridesmaids live next door, it may be a challenge to ask them in person. Mail them a letter filled with confetti and your favorite picture of the two of you. Who says the celebration has to stay in your hometown?
Cheers to Them – bottle of wine or bottle of champagne
You know how the saying goes, “Pop the champagne, I’m changing my last name”! Pop that champagne to your future bridesmaid as you embark on the most memorable day of your life with them! Cheers!
Plan a ladies brunch and ask all your ladies at the same time. This will be a sweet memory for all of you to share together and who doesn’t love brunch food!
Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend
Whoever said that the way to a woman’s heart is through chocolate and diamonds knew our kind all too well. With your flashy diamond in the spotlight, buy your bridesmaids a piece of jewelry. You can even choose a matching set for all your bridesmaids and have them wear it on your wedding day!
Light Up the Night – matches or candle
Candles seem to get the impression of a last resort gift. However, if you customize the label to say, “Light the night with me” your BFFs will love the candle and will be reminded to party hard with you at your wedding, every time they light the candle.
Take a Trip Down Memory lane
Sentimental gifts are always the best. Not only does it recap on all the wonderful moments you and your bestie have shared, but it also brings all those memories together in one spot. Make a scrapbook or order a photo book and include images throughout your friendship. Leave the last page empty and dress it up with wedding themed information. This way, they can hold onto this gift forever and after the wedding, they can capture the picture of the two of you at your wedding.
