One of the questions we hear asked a lot is "What on earth do I buy my bridesmaids/ groomsmen?!"
As a former bride, I'll be the first to admit that your bridesmaids go through A LOT while you're planning your wedding. They help you find the perfect dress, plan a killer bridal shower and bachelorette party and feed you wine when you are stressed about the seating chart. Not only are they doing a lot for you, but they also have to spend money on things like the bridesmaids dresses, shoes and makeup and the bachelorette party.
That is why you choose only the best and most loyal of friends to support you through the stress of it all. And after it's all said and done, and the big day arrives, you know they're going to be standing right next to you on the best day of your life, and probably holding your dress while you pee.
The groomsmen are usually forced to help with cleaning up after and doing some heavy lifting. And of course they're paying for their attire and the bachelor party too!
So it's become more common for brides and grooms to gift their bridal party with a small token of gratitude before the wedding.
So we've compiled a list of some super sweet ideas for you. From the amazing Groovy Guy Gifts and Bridesmaid Boutique.
