September 2013 Weddings

Wedding Party gifts!

I am assuming we are all in the gift planning stages here. Who are you buying for. Of course Bridesmaids and groomsmen. What about parents? Readers? Officiant?

What about a budget I have heard anywhere from $10 as long as it is thoughtful to the same price they spent on their dress!

Are you getting all the same things, jewelry, or a unique gift for each person?

I feel I am on a good path... but would love to see other ideas!



Re: Wedding Party gifts!

  • I made glittered wine glasses, bought super cute personalized wine glass charms, a bottle of wine, personalized hangers and matching bracelets for all of my girls.
    I also bought my sister (MOH) a handkerchief.

    For the guys we got personalized wooden beer mugs, a bottle opener and a 6 pack of craft beer.

    For the Ring bearers we got remote control cars, personalized mugs, a bottle of root beer and a shirt.

    For the flower girl we got a Tangled (Rapunzel) book and doll set, personalized mug,a bottle of root beer, a shirt and a bracelet and handkerchief.

    For my mom I got a handkerchief and sewing machine.

    For my dad I got a 16" softball to personalize. (Might add something else.)

    For my FI Step-dad we got a pocket watch.

    A friend of ours is our officiant. We got him the same gift as the groomsmen. We will also get a gift card for somewhere he likes to shop (he is doing it for free, we have to pay him some how!)

    We do not have any ushers. As of now, I do not have any readers. We haven't bought for FI's mom yet. I think I remembered everyone!

  • such great ideas! I gotta get on this! ;)

  • I'm lucky I only have an MOH but I decided to do a gift bag for my MOH and the MOB's.  I got everyone a silk monographed robe, fan, purse hand sanitizer, folding flats for mid-reception shoe change and key chains from the hotel we're getting married in.

  • We each have one attendant, MOH and best man, they happen to be married and their daughter is going to host the escort table and guest book. I also have 3 friends who are helping out with various parts of the set-up and ceremony. Here's what I'm doing:

    MOH-making jewelry specifically for the wedding. Also making a necklace with a crystal in her birthstone and a silver seal pendant with her first initial. A 1946 copy of Alice in Wonderland, which she absolutely loves!

    Best man - A Jerry Garcia tie (he will wear for the wedding and keep it) and a guitar pick with the lyric 'what a long strange trip it's been'...he's a huge Deadhead.

    Escort table - Jewelry specifically for the wedding and I'm also making her one of the initial and crystal necklaces

    For each of my three friends who are helping out, the crystal and initial necklace.

    The necklaces are all sterling silver with Swarovski crystals...I think they're very nice gifts to say thank you...and they will all be invited to the rehearsal dinner.

    I'm paying my officiant so there will be no gift for him
  • got all the bridesmaids jewelry
