As a bride, it's easy to get caught up in the attention vortex that's laser-focused on you leading up to the wedding. But no one deserves more of a thank you—and a few unique bridesmaid gifts—than your go-to girls in your bridal party.

Who else but your faithful besties will plan your bachelorette party, listen to unfettered wedding talk without interruption, and hold your gown up during impromptu trips to the bathroom on the most special day of your life? Bridesmaids are the unsung heroes of the wedding process—and just as not all heroes wear capes, not all heroes have to wear dupioni silk.
