Your wedding day is a memory you will cherish for the rest of your life. Your bridesmaids are indispensable during this special time, you want to show them your appreciation with an amazing gift that they will treasure forever!
A bridal party gift should reflect what the friendship has meant to you, not only on your wedding day but through the years. It’s important to find something they will really appreciate and will continue to adore long after your special day. Jewelry is a particularly beautiful gift because they know you have handpicked the piece especially for them. At Ella Rose, we recommend taking this gift idea up a notch with an engravement.
Bridal Party Gift Tips
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to setting a budget for bridal party gifts. Generally, today’s brides set aside around $50-$150 for each bridesmaid. The Maid of Honor will sometimes receive a unique gift separate from the bridesmaids to thank her for leading the pack and being your right-hand-woman throughout the engagement. The choice is yours and your bridal party gifts should align with your overall budget and gratitude.
Why are Engraved Necklaces a Must-Have Bridal Party Gift?
First off, your bridesmaids and Maid of Honor will be thrilled to receive any piece of jewelry as a bridal party gift. Who doesn’t want a lovely piece they can wear to occasion after occasion, long after the rush of the wedding subsides. Depending on when you decide to gift the jewelry, the necklaces could be a delightful accessory to wear to your bridal shower or bachelorette party, which will add nostalgic memories to the gift.

Give Your Gift at the Right Time
When and where should you give these gorgeous bridal party gifts? Some brides say the perfect time is at the rehearsal dinner, the night before the wedding. Other brides are choosing to give gifts early. You can send a gift as early as when you first ask your bridal party to stand by your side on your special day. There is no “correct” time—do what feels right and you can’t go wrong!
A different scenario is to give your bridal party their gifts prior to the ceremony itself. If all of you are in the same area getting ready, it might be a sweet moment to gather your wedding party and hand out your gifts. This can be a great memorable moment together that each member of the party can be a part of. Your wedding day is an occasion where emotions run high, everyone is excited, and your besties might shed tears of joy.
Giving a heartfelt and meaningful bridal party gift will mark this moment as one of life’s important chapters that will mean so much to all of you. You’ll be glad you chose to engrave a special gift.
