Through thick and thin, your friends have been there for you. Now, on your important day. they stand as witnesses to your nuptials. Express your appreciation for your loyal supporting cast by selecting wedding gifts that shows how much you care and make them feel appreciated. The Great Bridal Expo features a variety of exhibitors and vendors with inspiration for memorable bridal party gifts.


One of the most popular types of gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen is the personalized gift–items that are custom engraved or embroidered with the recipient’s name or initials. Stylish personalized bridesmaid gifts include tote bags, cosmetic bags, picture frames, jewelry, robes and friendship vases. Cool customized groomsmen gifts for the guys consist of mugs or beer steins, toiletry bags, money clips and duffle bags. When selecting a gift be sure to double-check the spelling of the receiver’s names or initials before placing an order.


Honor your bridesmaids or groomsmen with a keepsake gift, one that is thoughtful and reflective of your friendship. Collect photos and mementos from your past together and tell the story of your friendship with your beloved bridesmaids in an heirloom scrapbook. Create a video with music and showcase the antics and fun with your buddies over the years for the groomsmen. The key to a keepsake gift is to make it distinctive yet special.


Pamper your wedding party with extravagant gifts, not necessarily expensive gifts but the kind that appeal to the indulgent side of your bridesmaid or groomsman. Spoil your bridesmaids by giving them an all-expense paid trip to a local full service spa for a day of relaxation and spa treatments. Treat the guys to a pair of tickets to a favorite concert or sporting event. Jewelry is always a stand-by favorite, from pearl sets for women to cuff links for men.

Think outside-the-box for non-traditional wedding gifts, especially if you are having a non-traditional wedding. Non-traditional gifts feature a spirit that is fun and unique and the gifts may come in many shapes and forms. If you are crafty, create unique pieces of jewelry as your bridesmaid gifts or better yet, take the girls to a specialty bead shop and give each a bag to fill with beads to create their own unique masterpieces. Instead of individual items for the groomsmen gifts, give them a group gift such as dining at a steakhouse or an evening at the batting cages.
