Weddings are such a special time in a bride's life but they don't usually happen without a little help leading up to the big day. When a bride starts getting stressed out with the planning, the bridesmaids step in to help the bride with whatever the issue may be, calm her down, and remind her of why she’s doing this and what the end goal is. While weddings nowadays can be incredibly expensive for the bride, groom, and their families, they can get pricey for the wedding party as well, with bridesmaids dresses, hair, nail, and makeup appointments, bachelorette parties and bridal showers, any travel accommodations that may be needed, and, of course, gifts for the happy couple. With all of these duties, it’s important to make sure that the wedding party is shown appreciation through a meaningful bridesmaid gift.
50 Fabulous Bridesmaid Gift Ideas for Your I Do Crew

They do a lot of behind-the-scenes work, some things you may not even be aware of, to make sure your big day comes together perfectly. When trying to come up with a bridesmaid gift idea, it’s important to think of something they’ll actually like and be able to use, not just something you saw that you liked on Pinterest. While monogrammed gifts are fine, bear in mind also that they may not want to walk around with something that has the bride and groom’s names and wedding date on it, and that giving them a gift with this written on the side may never see the light of day again after it’s been opened.
In addition, you know your bridesmaids and know what they will like, so if try to make sure the gift is about them and something that they want. If your bridesmaid isn’t a fan of pink, frilly things, for example, a girly gift may not be the best way to go.
