Attendants’ Gifts

You’ve gathered together some of the most important people in your life to be a part of your wedding. Naturally, you will want to give each one a token of thanks for his or her role in your special day. Some brides offer to absorb the cost of the bridesmaids’ gowns; this is particularly appreciated if the gown you selected is expensive. A spa day is another great gift. Arranging facials, manicures, pedicures, massages and even hair and makeup services for your attendants prior to the wedding is a magnificent treat and, at the same time, a way to ensure that everyone looks her best. When considering other gifts, think of activities and interests you and your attendants share, and let that guide your choice. When applicable, add engraving or personalization for a special touch.
