Tag: bridal party gifts

One of the most frequent emails I get is from brides looking for suggestions for great bridal party gifts. It’s a tough nut to crack, right? These are some of the people you love most in the world, and you want to get them something sweet and meaningful, but you’re also paying for a wedding and any gift amount is going to be multiplied by two, or four, or ten (or however many bridesmaids and groomsmen you have!). We’re here to help (always!), so today’s answer to this age-old question are the new personalized gifts from Shutterfly!

We all know and love Shutterfly for photos, so we were thrilled about the launch of their new line of personalized statement gifts –premium, completely customizable wedding gifts at a great value.

First up? These personalized wine glasses! Hand them out when you gather to get ready on the morning of the wedding. The etched monogramming is simple and chic–it will be a hit no matter your pals’ style!

Another great gift idea for the morning of the wedding: a canvas pouch filled with all the essentials your ladies will need for a day of celebrating. Think: mini deodorant, mints, lipstick for touch-ups, and blotting sheets. Useful on your big day, and for years to come!

Here’s an idea we love if you’re lucky enough to live near your bridesmaids: surprise each on her doorstep with a monogrammed vase filled with flowers in her favorite color! This would be a sweet way to ask her to stand by your side soon after you get engaged, or as a special thank you after several late nights of DIY crafting! :)

Traveling somewhere tropical for your bachelorette party? Thank your friends for planning such a fabulous weekend by packing goodies in your carry-on! We personalized flamingo canvas pouches with celebratory weekend essentials (including confetti!) and stemless wine glasses for toasting.

Finding something at the right price point for your ladies can be tricky, but when it comes to the guys, I know some of y’all are just plain stumped. Thankfully, we’ve got your groomsmen covered, too. Try these personalized pilsner glasses –pair them with a custom beer growler for their favorite brew (and/or a melty biscuit!) on the morning of the wedding. We also love Shutterfly’s luggage tags, which are easy to personalize with a photo of each gents’ favorite destination.

Shutterfly’s tools make it easy to create gifts your bridal party will love, with great style and at a great price. We hope these ideas have inspired you to bring your own vision to life for your favorite guys and gals! To get started take a peek at all of Shutterfly’s new statement gifts here.

      One of the number one questions we’re asked at Southern Weddings is “What should I give my bridesmaids?” We LOVE that question, because it means that y’all are practicing graciousness–a quality we believe is so important, especially in a bride! So many people come together to love and support you during wedding planning, and it’s always worth the time and effort to make sure these people know how much you appreciate them. We teamed up with Zales to share some of our favorite gift ideas for not only your bridesmaids, but the groomsmen and your parents as well!

      Don’t feel like you need to get the same gift for all of your gals–these are your BFFs, so show them how well you know them! Since people can be picky about necklace lengths and styles, bracelets or earrings are often a safer bet to guarantee you’ll choose something everyone loves. Choose pieces in each girl’s birthstone or favorite color for an extra dose of personalization.

      Clockwise from top left: Lab-Created Blue and White Sapphire Earrings in Sterling Silver, Oval Lab-Created Ruby Tennis Bracelet in Sterling Silver, 6.0mm Peridot Crown Earrings in Sterling Silver, Pear-Shaped Tanzanite Line Bracelet in Sterling Silver

      Gents are notoriously hard to shop for, don’t you think? My go-to is something that is classic and useful, but that he wouldn’t necessarily splurge on himself. A monogrammed money clip is a great option, and any groomsman would appreciate a dapper pair of cuff links to wear on the big day.

      Clockwise from top left: Men’s Engraved Money Clip in Sterling Silver, Men’s Polished Oval Monogram Stainless Steel Cuff Links, Gun Metal Engraved Money Clip, Men’s Round Mother-of-Pearl and Onyx Cuff Links in Sterling Silver

      As well as your bridal party, your wedding is the perfect opportunity to thank your parents for all they have done leading up to that day, long before you had a ring on your finger. Classic and lovely pearls are our go-to for mama (and your groom’s mama, too!), while a watch or wallet with a sweet engraving is a favorite for dad.

      Left to right: Men’s Citizen Eco-Drive™ Watch with Black Dial, Men’s Citizen Eco-Drive™ Watch with Silver Dial, Blue Lagoon® by Mikimoto 5.5-6.0mm Cultured Akoya Pearl Stud Earrings in 14K Gold with Diamond Accents, Blue Lagoon® by Mikimoto 5.0mm Cultured Akoya Pearl Bracelet in 14K White Gold

      We’d love to know, did you give gifts to your bridal party and parents? What did you choose?
