As a bride-to-be, you have about a million things to think about for your wedding from dress fittings to the reception seating chart to your honeymoon itinerary. If you’re having a bridal party, the list goes on to include their bridesmaid dresses, accessories, and perhaps even their hair and beauty look. Last but certainly not least, you’ll want to remember a gift for each of your bridesmaids to show your dearest friends and family members how much you appreciate them standing alongside you as you say ‘I do’ and for supporting you throughout your bridal journey.
Bridesmaids gifts don’t have to be over the top gestures but simply a small token of gratitude. Rather than give a gift related to your wedding or a monogrammed robe or pajamas (which are definitely cute, but a little expected), a piece of jewelry that they can wear every day is an incredibly thoughtful gift that they’ll more than love.
Dainty studs and stackable rings are fail-safe trinkets almost every bridesmaid would appreciate (if someone doesn’t have their ears pierced, you can certainly sub in a cool ear cuff or clip-on). Pendant necklaces and signet rings are classic and versatile pieces that you can personalize with your bridesmaids initials or zodiac sign—they also just happened to each be trendy styles at the moment. Another great way to personalize a jewelry gift is to give your bridesmaid a piece of jewelry with their birthstone. Gemstones are another current jewelry trend that feels fresh to wear every day, however, they’re timeless pieces that will stand the test of time in any jewelry collection, too.
By no means do you have to give your bridesmaids uniform jewelry gifts. If one is more of an earring lover and another is devoted to her ring stacks, give them what they want! Just be sure to keep each piece on a similar scale so as not to show favoritism and make anyone feel slighted. If you choose to gift various pieces of jewelry based on your bridesmaid’s various styles and tastes, you’ll prove how well you know each one of them and the individual thought surrounding each piece will certainly be recognized.
