This is why a lot of people end up putting family members in their wedding party. They are obligated to help out anyway. And maybe your wild old college roommate is your best friend in the world, but your sensible friend from work might give a slightly more appropriate maid of honor speech.
After you have gone through the process of getting your dream team bridal party picked out, they are going to be in for a lot of work. Gifts for your bridal party show that you appreciate all of the effort they put into helping you out. Here are a few suggestions for bridal party gifts that will show you care without breaking the bank.
Personalized 25 Ounce Sport Mug
The best bridal party gifts are the ones that your friends will actually use in the future. This handsome mug is a great way to thank your groomsmen for putting in all the extra effort to help you through your big day. They can even be personally monogrammed with each individual's three initials.
Personalized Rubber Grip 13-Function Army Knife
Another practical bridal party gift for men or women is this super handy Swiss-style army knife. This is a great thing to have on hand for weekend camping getaways, or even for everyday life. It has features that include a screwdriver, scissors, a corkscrew, a bottle opener, and a nail file. It is made of stainless steel and can stand up to next to anything. This can also be personalized with your bridal party members' names.
Personalized Pink Camouflage Flask
If the girls in your bridal party aren't afraid to bring their drinks along with them, you might consider this adorable pink camouflage flask. The camo print is trimmed with pink leather and has a silver oval medallion on which you can have the name of the recipient engraved. One of the handiest parts of this flask is that it comes with a small funnel so you can easily fill it up.
Personalized Toasting Glass Set
When your bridal party raises their glasses to toast you on your wedding day, why not offer them personalized glasses that they can take home with them? These toasting glasses can hold 8 ounces of liquid and will hopefully be used over and over again for happy celebrations in the future.
Personalized Woody Filet Knife
If you and your groomsmen intend on making it out on a few weekend fishing trips, you could give them the gift of this handsome and functional filet knife. It has a perfectly sharp stainless steel blade and a solid wood handle. This knife also comes with a sturdy faux leather sheath.
Rhinestone Embellished Bridesmaid Flip Flop
One of the greatest gifts you can give to your bridesmaids is not making them wear uncomfortable high heels all night long. Why not surprise them with these super comfortable flip-flops when the dancing kicks into high gear? These white and pink sandals have 'Brides' printed on one foot and 'Maid' on the other.
High Polish Chrome Zippo Lighter
Somewhere in every man's desk drawer there should be a Zippo lighter with his initials engraved on it. Why not give your groomsmen the gift of the finest and classiest windproof lighter known to man? These lighters are guaranteed for life, but they are built so strongly that you will probably never have to capitalize on that promise.
Personalized Sanibel Island Tote Bag
If you decided to have a destination wedding at the beach, then make sure your bridal party is equipped to have a little fun in the sun while you are out there. This eco-friendly tote bag is made out of natural fibers and can fit all your beach needs in there. After the big wedding day, you are all going to need a little chill time in the sand and surf.
Personalized Cell Fone Flask
This is a fun and functional bridal party gift that everyone can have a laugh at. Though it looks just like a cellular phone it is actually a flask in disguise! It even comes with a carrying case that you can hook onto your belt for easy access to those 'important phone calls.'
Stainless Steel Harmonica
Warning: gift this only to bridal party members who are musically inclined. If not, you could be looking down the barrel of a reception filled with screeching blares from your drunk cousin. This 10-hole harmonica is made by the world-renowned brand Hohner, so you know it is of the finest quality craftsmanship.
The people in your bridal party are the people that you can count on for just about anything. These small gifts are a reminder to them about how much you care, but the best gift you can give them is your friendship, and to be there when they need you, just like they were there for you.
