Let’s talk wedding party! From the moment that you ask your besties to stand next to you on the biggest day of your life, your bridesmaids and groomsmen band together to make your wedding festivities extra special! Your girls organize the bridal shower of your dreams, and the guys plan an unforgettable bachelor weekend (and a lot of other fun quirky activities along the way!). Saying yes to being in someone’s wedding is not only a fun way to make memories, but is also a huge responsibility, a lot of time, and emotional and mental support (if you’ve been a bridesmaid or groomsmen, you know what we’re talking about!). Your wedding party deserves a little thank you gift to show just how much you appreciate their friendship and support while planning one of the most momentous occasions of your life. It should be unique and fun, reflective of your relationships and your personality. We get questions constantly of wedding gift ideas, so we’ve partnered to share some insight of our top favorites for the modern couple!

For The Girls
When it comes to gifting for your bride tribe, remember to have fun with it! Regardless if you want to give everyone the same, special something or if you want to personalize each present to match their persona, it’s exciting to find the perfect gift for everyone. One idea that we really love right now is making your getting ready candids with your girls on your wedding day extra special by providing them with cute outfits! We love the creative selections of robes and rompers nowadays because they are stylish, while giving off comfy vibes in the photos. This can be paired with a personalized hanger with each bridesmaids’ name so they know exactly which robe or romper is theirs! We’re also really loving customized leather or denim jackets which are getting trendy right now, but that’s a whole other blog post!

If you’re interested in gifting each of your girls something smaller or more personal, think of what stands out in their personality. Are they a homebody? A party animal? The gift options are endless when you think about it from this perspective! Imagine if your best friend is a workaholic who is always on the go, you can give her this minipresso so she can have ALL the coffee (so fun, right!).

For The Guys
Make it easy on your groomsmen to coordinate their day-of style by gifting them accessories to help them look the part of your wedding party. We love these groomsmen sets that offer an array of accessories such as ties, tie bars, socks, and pocket squares. Plus, you can pick and choose exactly which set is perfect for your wedding day theme! Just like for the bridesmaids, if you’d rather take a more personalized route for your guys, then pick a hobby they love and run with it. If you have a craft beer lover in your group, buy them a personalized growler that they can keep front and center of their collection. Or if you have a city-dweller that has to trek to work on public transit, a superb messenger bag may just be the perfect and practical gift for him. Don’t be afraid to get creative, we’ve even had a groom gift custom mini skateboards (with their wedding logo) before!

For Everyone In The Party
If you and your fiancé are trying to make this process quick and easy, consider ordering gifts that will please the whole entire wedding party. There are plenty of ways to achieve a thoughtful gift for the special men and women in your life. First, start off with handcrafting a thank you note for each person, focusing on something special they did during the planning process and take the time to show your appreciation of their friendship. We’re really loving when these type of gifts are more practical and useful for future gatherings together. Think corn hole boards, ping pong sets, or even a high-quality cooler that’s perfect for the barbecues, beach days, or outdoor excursions that you’ll do together. These are all gifts that they can use for years. Another trendy and easy gifting option is to equip everyone in the wedding parting with a pair of stylish sunglasses. C’mon, we all know how much we love a pair of great sunglasses, right?! Your crew will not only look on point on the wedding day, and can protect their eyes from the sun while you all party all day long!
