Wondering whether you should be buying gifts for your wedding party?

Wedding party gifts show sincere gratitude to your bridesmaids, groomsmen and parents. It’s a great way to reward the people who helped make your wedding day special. Your bridesmaids, groomsmen and parents are the people you trust and want by your side on your wedding day. Bridal party gifts are the perfect way to say thank you and are a small token of appreciation. Here’s our tips for gifts for your team!


Maid of Honour, Bridesmaids & Mothers

Flowers are a lovely gift, but who wants to carry them round all day? Some smaller, heart felt gifts that won’t break the bank can include necklaces, bracelets or perhaps a mug! Something small that can be personalised and they will often use and be reminded of being part of your special day!

If you want more fun gifts, then how about matching silk robes? They’re so cool! Even if you only use them on the day. You can also get personalised champagne and gin glasses for the friends that you know will use them again and again! For the Mums how about a family tree locket? What mum wouldn’t love that?


Best Man, Groomsmen & Fathers

For men it usually pays off to keep it alcohol related. Hip flasks, whisky glasses, tankards. Simple, and you can personalise it with their initials, or a thank you message. For around £20-£40, it’s a great gift.


Not everybody drinks. Just keep it practical, men love things they can use over and over. Wallets, socks and boxers are cute, and can also be personalised with names, messages, or in jokes!

If you’re on a tight budget then don’t feel that you have to buy your party gifts. A great budget gift could be a framed picture of you and your loved one from your Wedding. Either way, being part of your special day will be enough.
