Bridesmaid Gift: Give Them the World
Your bridesmaids play such a critical role in the wedding planning process. Even if you’re taking care of the actual wedding details yourself, the girls you’ve chosen to surround yourself with on your big day have been there through life’s ups and downs with you. They’ve supported you and offered a shoulder to cry on in the worst of times, and have been your biggest cheerleaders and allies through the good times. It’s likely that during the wedding planning process they have also listened to countless hours of musings on the difference between lime and chartreuse, the virtues of outdoor versus church ceremonies and assisted with DIY projects gone bad. By the time your wedding day rolls around, your bridesmaids have devoted countless hours, energy and money to help you have the most amazing experience – and they deserve a thank you.
Paying for their bridesmaid dresses is one way to say thank you. However, no matter how cute your dresses are, the likelihood of it being worn a second or third time by one of your friends is very small. Even if it’s a free dress, it’s still not exactly a gift they can cherish and use again and again. Jewelry is a popular bridesmaid gift option, but finding something unique enough that everyone will love is also a challenge. Lucky for you, we spotted the perfect pick: a gold world charm necklace by Dogeared.
This stylish little gem will show your bridesmaids that they mean the world to you. It’s delicate and dainty, and a portion of the proceeds go toward environmental protection. You’ll be giving back to the world when you give this gift, and it’s so simple and pretty that it can be worn with anything.
Personalize the gift by adding a notecard that says, “Our friendship means the world to me,” along with a note thanking your friend for being a bridesmaid. Since the charm necklace comes attached to a cute card with the phrase, ‘It’s a Wonderful World,’ you can also affix a printed piece of paper that says “…and our friendship means the world to me.’ Place this printed out phrase over the pre-written message below the necklace to make it personal and meaningful. The perfect time to give these gifts out is during a bridesmaid luncheon the day before the wedding, when everyone is in town together and you have a chance to hang out one last time before the whirlwind festivities begin. Your friends will love a gift they can wear again and again, and will feel equally lucky to call you their friend.
