Bridesmaids gifts are a great idea.  It’s a great way to ask them to be in your wedding party.  Here are some tips:

Don’t Rush!

Don’t rush out and asked your bestie right away.  Take some time to make the right decision.  Here’s a blog post that can help you with that decision.

When Should You Get Them?

There no particular timeframe for getting and giving bridesmaid gifts.  Aim for no later than one to two months before your wedding, since the last thing you want to do the week before your wedding is shop for presents. You can wait for seasonal sales or search for the perfect gift.  

How Much Should You Spend?

Consider two main things when budgeting for bridesmaid gifts:

  • how much your wedding budget will allow
  • how much your bridesmaids are spending to be in your wedding.

The first question is obvious, spend what you can.  Remember that it’s how thoughtful the gift is not how much you spend.

The second one is a little trickier.  Keep in mind that your bridesmaids are spending money to be in your wedding.  Think of the parties leading up to the wedding, sometime travel and hotel and the wedding attire also.   $50 and $150 is a typical budget.

The maid of honor typically gets something a bit more special and don’t forget flower girls, and junior bridesmaids.

When do you give them?

There are a couple ways to give them:

  • Give part of the gift or the whole gift when you ask them to be in your wedding
  • Give them at the rehearsal dinner
  • Give them the morning of your wedding when you are getting ready
  • Create a bridal party luncheon a few weeks before the wedding and give them then

Note: While I chose these gifts as things I would personally give, some of these links are affiliate links where if you purchase, you won’t pay more but I’ll get a tiny stipend.
