After becoming engaged, the process of choosing the friends and family members that will stand up for you on your wedding day begins. Your wedding party plays a very important role, giving of their time to assist with various tasks to ensure your special day is perfect. For this reason, you want to show these individuals how special they are and just how much you appreciate them participating in the most treasured day of your life.
The perfect way to accomplish this is by presenting each of them with a gift that ischosen specifically for them, based on your relationship and their personality. Let us begin with the Maid of Honor. This role is much more than simply standing up with the bride and looking pretty.
In her role, the Maid of Honor helps the bride shop for gowns, she runs errands, makes wedding favors, keeps the bridesmaids on track with their roles, and many other helpful things. Typically, the Maid of Honor is the brides best friend and someone irreplaceable. Choose something very special for her, which might include a monogrammed silver makeup compact, personalized bracelet, or diamond earrings.
For the Best Man, he too has very important responsibilities. He will host the bachelor party, be in charge of the groomsmen, organize the tuxedo rentals, and do what he can to assist the groom. Additionally, the Best Man is usually the best friend of the groom so something special is in order. You might take him skiing, on a golf trip, or purchase a monogrammed silver money clip.
The gifts chosen for the wedding party should all be in the same price range and similar although they do not need to be the exact thing. Some of the traditional type gifts include silver boxes, picture frames, hair jewelry, body jewelry, perfume atomizers, makeup compacts, and so on for the bridesmaids. For the groomsmen, you could consider gifts such as money clips, cigars and cigar holders, lighters, and personalized pens.
Other people you need to purchase gifts for would include the parents and the grandparents. Since these people are the closest and your number one supporters, choose something very special. This might include anything from a personalized silver picture frame to dinner out at a five-star restaurant, or even a weekend getaway.
Finally, do not overlook your other friends and family members that have helped make your wedding possible. This would include the individual that manages the guest book, the ceremony reader, musicians, the minister, ushers, flower girl and ring bearer, and so on. The gifts do not need to be expensive, just something that shows you remembered the hard work they provided and that you appreciate them for it.
