One very popular idea for bridesmaid gifts is to have jewelry made to compliment the attendants’ dresses. These pieces are often handcrafted from precious materials like Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, and sterling silver. Necklaces, earrings, and bracelets can be custom made in colors that coordinate with the wedding colors. One caveat, though: it is very thoughtful to give your bridesmaids beautiful jewelry that they can wear in the wedding, but do not require that it become a mandatory part of their attire. When it comes to how to put all the details together, you can probably go as far as selecting their shoes, but you cannot tell grown women how to wear their hair, makeup, or jewelry. A bride who attempts this will quickly get a reputation as a bridezilla!

Personalized gifts are also very welcome. Consider engraved sterling silver jewelry or monogrammed tote bags. It is also customary to give the maid of honor a gift that is similar to, but more elaborate than, the gifts presented to the bridesmaids. For instance, if you have chosen a necklace and a pair of earrings as your bridesmaid gifts, for your maid of honor give her the full bridesmaid jewelry set including the bracelet. It would also be a very nice touch to present the jewelry in engraved sterling silver jewelry boxes, which are very elegant and can be surprisingly affordable.

You can let the theme of your wedding inspire you. Destination weddings in a tropical climate might call for unique jewelry handcrafted from shells or with starfish motifs. Travel related pieces like a monogrammed toile garment bag would also be thoughtful bridesmaid gifts for a destination wedding. For a formal wedding, more traditional gifts, such as pearl bridesmaid jewelry would be appropriate. Make sure that the gift matches not only the style of your wedding but also the personality of your attendants.

To make it even more meaningful, be sure to present your gifts at a time when all of your attendants are together. This could be done at a spa afternoon, or perhaps a bridesmaids’ luncheon. Tying the gift-giving into a special event that the bride is enjoying with her close friends will make the bridesmaid gifts that much better. After all, it is all about expressing your appreciation for your wedding party.
