We all know being a bridesmaid isn't always easy, and your girl squad certainly deserves a token of your appreciation for all they've done. But, don't let the gift giving turn into yet another daunting wedding planning chore. Fall brides, be sure to check out our favorite ways to embrace the season and gift your girls' festive gifts for being a special part of your big day.
Wrap Them Up
It's finally scarf season, so embrace it! Select matching or mismatched cozy-but-trendy wraps for your best girls to rock not only on your big day, but all season long. You can monogram them, match them to your color scheme, or select a special print or pattern for each girl that reflects their unique personalities.
Rose Gold Everything
We happen to think that rose gold looks gorgeous all the time, but when it's worn with pops of plaid, rich wine colors, and neutral fall tones, it's really in its element. Custom monogram necklaces, symbolic bracelets, or simple rings are all wardrobe staples that are sure to please, especially in this warm, trendy pink-hued metal.
Seasonal Day Out
The older you get, the more you begin to realize that memories and experiences are worth far more than store-bought items. With this in mind, treat your best girls to a pre-wedding day or evening out that isn't the bachelorette party. Host a pumpkin painting/carving party with a Pinterest-worthy tablescape, festive bites, and wines perfect for the season. Or, head out to the vineyard, orchard, pumpkin patch or outdoor festival and you'll be able to spend non-wedding planning time with your favorite people while enjoying all the weather, fashion, and food that autumn has to offer.
Rich Colored Gems
We love the sentiment behind gifting your besties a unique piece of jewelry they can cherish long after your wedding. If you go this route, embrace the rich hues of fall and go for emeralds, garnet, rubies, or amber. Not only are these colors versatile enough to wear with virtually any ensemble — they are each representative of a different meaning and reflective of the season, too.

Custom Coffee Mugs & Tumblers
With cooler weather comes a plethora of warm, delicious beverages (yes, we're totally into PSLs and not ashamed). Since bridesmaids are consistently on the go, we love the idea of gifting custom tumblers or mugs to your bridal party that they can use the morning of your wedding (hello Instagram) and continue to use for their morning pick-me-ups and beyond.
Make "Netflix and Chill" complete with pajama sets to keep your girls comfy and cozy all season long. The season calls for warm fleeces and flannels — which of course can be completed with their initials, monograms, and other personal details. Gift your girls their sets the night before the wedding and have a slumber party — and upon waking up for a morning of pampering and glamour, you won't have to do much to be looking picture-perfect. Not only will your girls look on point for the first set of getting ready photos, it's a bridesmaid gift that they can actually use beyond the wedding — WIN/WIN.
