Wedding Wednesday: Bridesmaid Gift Ideas.

Before I got engaged, I always liked to see posts on gift ideas for the wedding parties. And once I got engaged, I created a "note" on my phone where I could save gift ideas as they popped in my head. My bridesmaids are getting one, kind of two, of these, but I can't spill the beans on which one(s) yet!





Bridesmaid Gift Ideas



-Necklace or earrings to wear the day of the wedding, and after.

-Solemates to wear on their high heels for those outside weddings! 

-Monogrammed pashmina from Marley Lilly in case of a chilly evening.

-A cute clutch to keep lipgloss near by! Or your drivers license in case you get ID'ed halfway through the wedding reception like me! :)

-Any girl would love a monogrammed necklace!

-Monogrammed handkerchief to fold around the bottom of their bouquets and to keep afterwards.

-Monogrammed Tervis Tumbler, because you can never have too many tumblers!

Notice a trend? :)

For the married ladies, what did you give your bridesmaids?
For those of yall who have been bridesmaids before, what has been your favorite gift you've received?

  3. I did the monogrammed pashminas and my girls loved them! I also did monogrammed Lilly tumblers and monogrammed white button downs for them to wear while we got ready.

  4. I love all these ideas! I gave my girls a burlap tote bag (fitting because we used so much burlap in the wedding) monogrammed with their first initial. The bag included: a sewing kit, orbit gum, water bottles, and matching earrings. My mom is very handy with a sewing machine and made the bags for me; mother-in-law asked if she got one too (oops!). The girls loved them and could carry all their wedding needs with them that day.

  5. OK, Megan. I need a post on groomsman's gifts. Have you and Cameron decided on those??

  6. Such sweet ideas! I gave my girls monogrammed Tervis tumblers and each a different piece of personalized jewelry {ex: my sister-in-law got a necklace with a dainty sterling silver camera charm, since she's a photographer!}. No matter what you give your bridesmaids, personalizing it somehow is always the best way to go :) I didn't want my girls to think I just picked up a handful of the same thing at the store, without thinking of them individually.

  9. I did monogrammed robes. Seems like a lot of girls are doing those these days, but I loved the idea of us all being dressed alike in our getting ready pictures. I think it really made those pictures extra special, they are some of my favorites. I'm actually going to be blogging about my bridesmaids gifts later today.

  10. Love the idea of the monogramed Tervis Tumblers! I also have had friends who have done like year-subscriptions to People or US Weekly Magazine, or Nars Lipgloss & a piece of jewelry. Your picks are great!

  11. Love all the monogrammed ideas! It's always great to get a personalized BM gift. Although, I will tell you I bought Solemates for my outdoor wedding and they were a complete bust! I had so much hope! I splurged on fancy heels and everything. No help at all and my heel even got stuck going out the wrong end somehow and I still was sinking in the ground. Complete waste of money! Go with wedges for the girls and just don't rest on your heels too much during vows (if you're outside)

  12. The best bridesmaid gift that I received was a silver 'Return to Tiffany' heart tag toggle bracelet engraved with my monogram. It was definitely a very generous gift!

  13. Fun post! And I was just about to write about my sister's awesome bridesmaid gifts but see that she beat me to the punch (Reedy River Recessionista, comment above). Those short waffle-weave monogrammed robes were just so cute -- pink with our monograms in white. It made for fun photos. I also had a girlfriend to give us gold clutches - her jewelry-designer mom embellished each one with a different brass charm or metal piece on the front.

    I gave my bridesmaids mercury glass jewelry holders from Anthro and vintage floral hankies!

  14. I got each of my girls a personalized tote bag that could be used on the wedding day, a pashmina that could also be used on the wedding day, (but they didn't really need to be used since it was 68 degrees in November! In Chicago!) and cute flip flops to wear at the reception. I definitely went with the "use it at the wedding and hopefully after" notion.

  15. I love the ideas that you have here. The Tervis Tumbler is cute. I got mine a personalized notepad, two personalized makeup bags, a plastic tumbler with a straw with their initial and favorite color in dots on it, and then I got them the earrings that they wore for the wedding. I think they liked them. :) I've never seen those solemates things.

  16. Monogrammed anything is fab! I actually received a pair of Revas for a BM gift so we could "dance the night away". Unreal!

  20. Hey Megan! I gave my girls pearl bracelets and earrings, and I gave each of them a clutch from Jenna (http://jennaloudesigns.bigcartel.com/category/custom-clutches) - she has AWESOME prints and got each girl one in their favorite color..and added a sewn in patch with a little embroidered message for each of my girls! They loved them :-D
