There is something special about asking the people in your life to be a part of your wedding party. Most of the time, people are really honored when you ask them. Marrying couples want to thank the people who have taken the time to help prepare for and be a part of their special day, and often they give gifts to their wedding party as a symbol of thank you.
The cost of your gifts should be determined by your budget and the number of people in your wedding party. Regardless of the cost, you want your gifts to come from the heart; to show love and appreciation. For the women, small hand bags, jewelry like bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, fingernail polish, and decorative headbands are all great options that show love and appreciation and don’t cost a lot of money. Of course you can get as extravagant as you would like with engraved drinking glasses with each person’s name, or full jewelry sets, or even spa gift certificates. It is really all based on your budget and should be a part of your wedding planning.
Getting gifts for the men can be a little more difficult, but it still doesn’t have to break the bank. Great options for the best man and groomsmen are flasks, shot glasses, pocket knives, and cheap fun sunglasses. But there again, the budget is the limit, so if you can afford shaving kits, watches, or sports medallion mugs, go for it!
These gifts are just one way to show love and appreciation to your wedding party, and can be thought of during your wedding planning, but don’t let this part consume you. Your bridesmaids and groomsman will appreciate whatever you get for them. They are really content just being a part of your special day.
