Wedding party gifts are a must for any bride and/or groom that helps with the planning and execution of her or his wedding. A wedding party gift is a great, non-verbal way to thank somebody for their help in organizing and planning out your wedding.
Typically, those who receive wedding party gifts include your parents, your flower girl and ring bearer, bridesmaids and groomsmen, the maid of honor and the best man, the wedding planner, and anyone else who has played a role in your special day.
Many companies and online shops offer collections of excellent wedding party gifts that are perfect for any wedding and are sure to please. Monogrammed totes and personalized watches are always a must-have for the maid of honor and the bridesmaids.
For the men, consider personalized golf caddies, leather bomber jackets, messenger bags, and even cuff links. If you have children participating in your wedding, then you can choose from many wedding party gifts that will be perfect for them. Play pretend kits, gift certificates, small trinkets, and artistic creations are all wonderful presents for children.
As you already know, many couples choose to present presents to those who have helped them plan their wedding, as a way of showing their appreciation and thanks.
Often these wedding party gifts will be presented at the rehearsal dinner that often occurs the night before the wedding itself. In most instances, the type of gift chosen is used for everyone who is in the wedding party. But there’s no law saying that you can’t pick out more personalized items for individuals, and choose to give them at other moments when the occasion is better suited.
Some tips for making the most of your wedding party gifts:
First, make a budget and plan on sticking to it. If you do choose to pick out different gifts for different individuals, make sure all of those wedding party gifts are in the same price range.
When selecting presents, make sure to keep the interests of the person you are giving a gift to in mind. The best man who has a drawer full of watches probably doesn’t need another one, no matter how nice that particular wedding gift might be.
Present presents to the men at the bachelor party, and presents to the women at the bachelorette party.
Be sure to thank each person individually and in person, in addition to giving them wedding party gifts.
