The Traditional Gift of Jewelry
Wedding party gift ideas really do run the gamut! Traditional bridal party suggestions have always included jewelry and quite often that jewelry is presented before the ceremony and incorporated into the overall dress. Pearls, the traditional ¬?wedding gems¬?, make lovely bridesmaid gifts. Whether they are presented with single strands to wear round their necks or simple rings containing just one pearl, they will cherish the beautiful pieces. As the maid of honor is especially cherished, consider adding another piece to her gift. For example, if you have decided to give the bridesmaids pearl rings, consider one more pearl item for the maid of honor in addition to the ring.
Jewelry, of course, can be chunky and modern, costume, or simple and more traditional. Charms are popular bridal party gifts, as are lockets. Since you know this group of women best, you will be able to determine just what type of jewelry they would most enjoy.
Bags and Carry-Alls Make for Outstanding Gifts
Bridal handbags and purses are another popular presentation for the wedding party. They can be purchased with bag jewelry, small charms that one can attach to handbags, and they are often available in a personalized monogrammed style. The bridal party can also use these bags throughout the reception, and if they all match it will add to the overall look of uniformity and celebration.
Photo bags are among the latest trends in wedding party gifts. Generally one side of the bag is undecorated, while the other side contains three to four photographs of your choice which are actually incorporated into the fabric. Selecting photographs that celebrate special moments shared by the bridal party would be especially meaningful.
Help Your Party Relax
As wedding planning can at times be stressful, the spa theme is an appropriate choice when considering unique wedding party gifts. Plush monogrammed robes are fun gifts for the bridesmaids as well as the groomsmen, as are certificates to a day at the spa! In fact, if these men and women enjoy spending time together, they can use their spa certificates to create a group outing.
Other Fun Ideas
More wedding party gifts might include engraved compacts and pocket watches, key chains, picture frames, perfume, cologne, home spa kits, watches, and flowers. If busy schedules allow for it, book a night at a comedy club, a theater, or coordinate a laid back picnic for the group!
Wedding party gift ideas can be as unique as this extraordinary group of people. Just remember to let your gifts reflect what will most be enjoyed, and let your friends know that they are cherished.
