Your bridesmaids are often your sisters, soon to be sister-in-laws or your dear friends that know you so well. From standing beside you on your big day to helping you feel your best and celebrate your love, they’ve spent countless hours helping you plan and deal with all the pre-wedding stress that most likely took place. These ladies have been through it all with you and finding the right way to say thanks and make them feel appreciated may be challenging. Don’t fret! There are many ways to say thanks but we’ve rounded up our favorites that offer your genuine gratitude for their love and support!
- Stage a Bridesmaid Proposal
Ask your ‘maids to stand by your side in a unique way! Use the opportunity to “propose” to your bridesmaids in a way that’s personal. Treat them to lunch or get creative with pulling together a gift basket with bridesmaid essentials. It’ll make them feel honored and special even before the big day!
- Write Thank You Cards
Write your ‘maids a heartfelt message thanking them for being part of the journey to your wedding day. Personalize each card with a nostalgic memory and express you truly appreciate their friendship and support!
- Give a Gift
Your bridesmaids have given you the gift of their unwavering support through the planning process, so now it’s your turn to present them with a meaningful gift! Jewelry that can be worn on your wedding day and beyond is a popular choice and one that will always have meaning to your ‘maids! Our Petite Cluster CZ Earrings are a perfect gift and so are our collection of bridesmaid jewelry sets!
- Include a Special Toast
Whether at your bridal shower, during your rehearsal dinner or even on the big day, offer a public thanks by toasting to your bridesmaids! Thank them for all of their support and friendship and let everyone know how great they are.
- Treat Them To A Spa Day
Get the girls together before the big day to pamper and prepare! You can say thanks by treating them to a day of mani, pedis or facials. Everyone will be able to take a break from planning and relax. This will also make sure you all look and feel your best on the big day! *Tip: Ask the spa if they offer discounts for bridal parties!
- Host a Bridesmaids’ Brunch or Wine & Cheese Party
This could be before or after the wedding. If your ‘maids are not close with each other, it’s a great idea to host a party so that everyone can get together before the big day to get to know each other better and take a break from planning (or brainstorm some ideas over mimosas). A party after the wedding is also a great idea if you’re not jetting off on your honeymoon right away. You can get together with the girls for a “thank you” party filled with good food, drinks and laughs. This could either take place at your house or a restaurant!
Remember that you don’t have to go all out for this, just be sure to let your bridesmaids know that you appreciate their help and that you’re thankful for having such great friends!
