Giving bridesmaid jewelry gifts at your bridal shower is a great way to show the ladies who support you that you appreciate their efforts. To me, putting in as much thought to this process as you can is essential. You only have one chance to get this right after all! Bridesmaid jewelry gifts should be commemorative, so give these ones a try.
This may seem like one of those obvious bridesmaid jewelry gifts, but there is an opportunity to get inventive here. Why not pick a symbol that you know your bridesmaids will relate to the day? For example, if you have a theme incorporating butterflies, use that! I also love the idea of an Anne Boleyn-style necklace, using the first initial of the bridesmaid’s last name instead.
Many women have very few chances to receive pearls as a gift in their lifetime. In fact, it is so rarely in-vogue these days that many won’t. At your bridal shower, take the opportunity to give your bridesmaids a gift they all deserve. It is opulent, but if you only have one or two bridesmaids it is certainly worth it.
Charm bracelets are meant to commemorate those beautiful events in a person’s life. If your bridesmaids don’t have one yet, you can get them started with a charm that commemorates your wedding day. Try one that symbolizes love, and maybe add in one of their initials to ensure each one is unique. For an extra special touch, send them all another one on your first wedding anniversary!
Seahorses are symbols of strength and love. In fact, out of all the marine creatures, they maintain love better than most! Giving your bridesmaids a seahorse shows them how much you value the strength of their love for you. If you don’t want to give them a necklace, consider giving them a brooch instead.
If you’re yet to ask someone to be your bridesmaid, why not send them a message in a bottle? Like the “Drink me” messages from Alice in Wonderland, messages in a bottle are cute. They work just as well for flower girls as bridesmaids. You can make your yourself, or find someone crafty to do it for you.
In recent years, ornamental hair pieces have made a big re-emergence onto the bridal jewelry scene. If you already know what you’d like your bridesmaids to wear in their hair, buy the pieces to hand out at your bridal shower. Personally, I love leaves! However, delicate tiaras are just as adorable.
Are you having a summer wedding? Or, maybe you’re having a wedding on the beach? If your bridesmaids will be wearing short dresses because of the weather, accessorize their feet. Anklets that stretch down to the toe are beautiful, and they have a sense of oriental mysticism about them too.
Giving your bridesmaids a gift is always going to be one of the best ways to show your appreciation. Jewelry is so precious, they will value it forever. When preparing your gift, consider personalizing the wrapping too. If you have any great bridesmaid gift ideas—they don’t have to be jewelry—what are they?
