While yes the bride does deserve most of the attention, the bridesmaids need some loving as well!! Having to deal with the bride is not always the easiest of tasks, especially when she is the “bridezilla” type, so buying something special for your bridesmaids will be a lovely way to show your appreciation to each of your bridesmaids. A simple yet elegant bracelet or necklace are the perfect gifts for someone you truly care about. While doing my tedious research on Pinterest, I came across a picture of a beautifully delicate bracelet by Melanie Auld Designs, which made me think how perfect this gift would be for a bridesmaid. Another wonderful gift, which is more common, is to buy each one of your bridesmaids a robe to wear when getting ready before the wedding. Plum Pretty Sugar has some of the most fun designs for robes. They come in both cotton voile and habutai silk.
Finding special, meaningful gifts for your honor attendants to say thanks for being a part of your big day can be tough. A perfect idea is to get them all jewelry. There is an Etsy shop called “LovelyBJewelry”, out of Fort Worth, TX, that sells beautiful handmade bracelets. The bracelets are made from gold plated memory wire and beading, and come in a myriad of different colors. You can “stack” them to create cute color combinations to go with other jewelry and outfits. “LovelyBJewelry” is fun, quality jewelry that would be perfect for those closest to you during this special time of your life.

On the big day, the bride and her attendants get ready together either at someone’s house, a church, or a hotel room. Getting ready with so many people can be hectic and with the bridesmaids having identical dresses, it’s easy to get them confused. Etsy.com store “Blissfully Wired” makes wooden hangers with customized wire into any words, names, or phrases. This makes for a cute gift as well as making it easy for everyone in the bridal party to tell which dress is whose. Another thing I love about these hangers is that they construct the date out of wire and put it on top of the hanger so you can remember that special day. Each hanger is made free hand and you can choose the wire and wood color to add something extra to an ordinary hanger.

Custom hangers also create some of the best photographs! You can hang your dress anywhere- from a doorway, to a window, to a tree right outside! It’s easy to recreate any of these looks..
Based in Mckinney, Tx, The Preppy Thread has become a go-to for personalized gifts. They feature everything from makeup bags to towel wraps to linens. Here are a few of our favorites!
The first photo above is the “Bath Robe.” Your ‘Maids will love to get ready for your big day in this, and they can use it at home for years to come! Every time they put it on your favorite girls will be reminded of your big day. The second photo is the “Boyfriend Shirt.” Another piece that is perfect for getting ready in! It can be easily slipped off and you won’t have to worry about smudged makeup or a crazy up-do!
Another great gift for your ‘Maids is a makeup bag! Featured here are the waffle-cloth bags and the oilcloth bags. You can customize any color, any ribbon, and any initials or words. A great way for your ‘Maids to remember your big day is to add your wedding date on the other side of the bag!
Finally, a fun and useful way to celebrate your big day is these linen cocktail napkins! Much easier to carry around then a coaster, these cocktail napkins are a unique gift that your ‘Maids will love to have in their home! Include a cocktail napkin with the date of your wedding day and that can be your designated napkin whenever you visit!
