When it comes to helping out in the days leading to the big event, and on the day itself, the “wedding party” comes into its own. A posse of the bride and grooms nearest and dearest, often consisting of the mother and father of the bride and groom, best man, ushers, maid of honor, bridesmaids and a cute ringbearer and flower girl or two. That’s plenty of helpers’ keen to do their utmost to make the day one to remember for all of the right reasons. So how do you say thank you to them all and show them just how grateful you are?
Something for the Girls.
Looking after the bride all day can be time consuming and tiring! The unenviable job of hoisting up the bride’s opulent dress while she goes is worthy of a reward itself! The maid of honor and bridesmaids would appreciate a little bling to say thank you. Pretty charms, necklaces and bracelets can make lovely gifts, and to add a special touch, the item can be inscribed with a personal message.
Something for the Boys.
The best man, groomsmen and ushers also deserve a little treat. After all they have no doubt been very busy organizing and thoroughly enjoying an awesome bachelor party! Then there’s the day itself, making sure Great Aunt Elaine finds her seat in time. The best man also has the added delight of making a speech (with the objective of embarrassing the groom) and deserves plenty of kudos for his toils.
Watches are a nice idea and make not only a thoughtful, but also a practical gift. Other ideas include pocket knives and shot glasses (to drink from not to wear)! Again, it makes things a little more special if the item is engraved.
Something for the Parents.
The very existence of the happy couple can be attributed to the mother and father of the bride and groom, so surely that’s reason enough for a gift. But most parents do more than just be there in the run up to the wedding, often contributing on all fronts, with both emotional and financial support. Sentimental gifts are a lovely way to say a special thank you. Engraved cufflinks for dads, inscribed pretty necklaces for moms and personalized items such as photo frames will be welcomed with open arms.
Don’t Forget the Kids.
Ring bearers and flower girls may look cute as buttons but weddings can be tiring and a bit of a chore for them. The importance of the big day is often impressed upon them and their efforts of “being good” should be recognized. Personalized teddy bears bearing T-shirts that feature the details of the wedding make a cute keepsake. A fun option is a box of goodies that can be given at the reception. This could include a disposable camera, crayons and bubbles – let the fun begin.
