Fresh Gift Ideas for your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

We’re right in the thick of engagement season, and if you’re someone with a new ring on their finger, you’re probably stressing about the massive to-do list that began as soon as you said, “YES!” But worry not, we’ve thought about the smallest of details so you don’t have to. When all is said and done, and you’ve made it to your big day, it’s important to acknowledge the people who helped pull everything together. From picking out your save the dates, to zipping up your dress and putting cufflinks on your tux your people were there through it all. We’ve got some great gift ideas to make sure your entire wedding party knows that they’re appreciated.

Jewelry Made For Them

Nothing says thank you like a custom gift. We’re not just talking about a basic drink tumbler or robe, either! Jewelry from L2 Creations is handcrafted, repurposed and completely one of a kind! Giving a gift like this for your bridesmaids is not only thoughtful but long-lasting. Your girls can wear their custom jewelry on your big day, but also enjoy their unique accessory for years to come. This type of gift can forever serve as a reminder of your gratitude and serve as a testament to your friendship. Lauren can work with you to come up with a design that complements your style and brings out the personality of each of your lovely ladies. She can also make something up for the gents as well.

Creative Accessories for the Group


Accessories don’t always have to be interpreted as jewelry. While we love that gift as an idea (see above) we think also think that accessories for the wedding can have a more practical connotation. Want something your girls can use daily? Gift a pair of sunglasses on your wedding day! Not only can they make great group photo opportunities, but sunglasses are something that can be used daily. Figure out the style your girls like and get them something they’ll be happy to show off on a daily basis!

Want a similar idea for the guys? After all, groomsmen want to accessorize too! Consider gifting a watch that can be worn as a gift of your gratitude on the big day. It is a classy touch to pull their entire ensemble together. Traditionally, groomsmen all wear the same tux on the wedding day; so take into consideration that you can get a watch that suits their unique style. It allows for some personal flair to shine through on the big day, and compliments their everyday look after the day is over!

A Local Drink

We all know that a wedding is a day of celebration. Consider gifting your guys and girls a bottle of their favorite locally distilled alcohol! Country Seat Spirits allows you to buy online which makes for a really convenient gift giving experience. You can toast to the day or save the drink to unwind after the festivities have concluded!

Maybe you’re interested in a similar gift that keeps on giving. The Colony Meadery also provides the option of the Drinking Horn Mug Club. Sign your wedding party up for a year’s worth of perks and discounted mead! As a member, your people will be guaranteed a free mug every time a new mead comes on draft and other money saving perks! Consider getting yourself a membership as well, it can be used as a great way to get the entire wedding party back together!
