10 Great Gifts Your Bridesmaids Will Love For $100 Or Less
February 16th, 2016 Wedding IDEAS, INSPIRATION AND INSIDER TIPS
Moonlight is here to share with you expert advice on the etiquette of bridesmaids gift giving. These girls have been helping you since the moment you got engaged and now many months later all of your wedding details are finally settling into place. Your gift to them will be a token of appreciation and a way to thank them for being by your side during all these months before your wedding as well as during the process of wedding planning. Before you begin to search for the perfect gift you will want to keep a few things in mind.
You will want to begin by noting how much has been asked for from your bridesmaids such as her bridesmaids gown, a plane ticket, new shoes and your bridal shower and wedding gifts. You are definitely not expected to gift them with an item worth the same value, but take the time to purchase something that truly expresses to your bridesmaids that you absolutely have acknowledged all of the time, money and effort they have put into your wedding. Do not worry about the value of the gift itself; it is more important to focus on finding a thoughtful gift that comes straight from the heart. Because your maid of honor has a very special place in your heart and has taken the time to plan your bridal and bachelorette party, it is tradition to spend more on her gift. To save money you can spend less on gifts for your flower girl and Jr. bridesmaids who are typically between the ages of 9 to 14.
As we said before, the value is not as important as the meaning behind your gift. With that in mind we have chosen our 10 favorite gift ideas for your bridesmaids all for $100 OR LESS. Let's get shopping!
