Friends and family members who agree to be members of the bridal party need to be thanked for their roles in making a wedding day special. Giving a gift is a great way to emphasize thanks to people who are doing so much for the couple. They are spending time and money and effort and love as participants in this very important day.
Brides and grooms, who think that bridal party gifts are just money clips for the guys and pearl earrings for the girls, are in for a surprise. Today's brides and grooms are eager to make their expressions of gratitude a more personal statement than in the past. They are spending time working with gift specialists in the jewelry store where their rings were purchased, or with consultants in gift and table top departments who have helped them create a meaningful gift registry, or with the bridal consultants in their fashion store who helped them with their gown and tuxedo selections.
Today's gifts are mementos - tokens of gratitude for the role the bridal party has played in this special day. The gifts chosen reflect the importance of that role. While jewelry items that can be worn the day of the wedding remain popular, the range of bridesmaid and groomsman gifts has broadened to include glassware, bar-ware, silver items like picture frames, dressing accessories, personal accessory items, artwork and fine writing accessories. Groomsmen gifts include well-made knives, flasks, and key rings. Rare coins, poker sets in pre packed cases, fine leather goods and jewelry items for both maids and groomsmen remain popular.
Whatever the gift chosen for bridal party attendants, the couple should be reminded to include gift items for the bride's and groom's parents. A meaningful gift can be a lovely double crystal picture frame that has room for the wedding photograph on one side and a thank you note or sample invitation on the other.
Thanking those who have helped to make the wedding day so memorable is a special privilege.
Your comments are welcome.
