Your bridesmaids are there for you in many different ways, from helping plan your bridal shower and bachelorette party to showing their support on one of the biggest days of your life. As the bride, it’s important to show your bridesmaids just how much they mean to you with a small token of your appreciation.
It is customary to give your bridesmaids a gift during the rehearsal dinner as a thank you for all of their support and hard work. In most cases, the gift will include a piece of jewelry or a monogrammed robe that they can wear on the big day while they are getting ready. However, if you want to give your bridesmaids a gift that they will never forget, then Venus ET Fleur® is here to help!

Unique Gift Ideas for Your Bridesmaids
Most brides will give their bridesmaids their gift during the rehearsal dinner, and this gift often includes small items that you will want your bridesmaids to wear during the ceremony, such as shoes and jewelry. However, it’s also a nice gesture to include something special that they will either be able to use after the wedding or will make the big day a little more special.
A Framed Photo
Bridal parties often consist of close friends or family members of the bride or people who hold a special place in your life. One way you can make the day more special is to give your bridesmaids a gift that reminds them of that unique bond you share. A framed photo is a great way to show how much their support on your special day means to you. Choose one of your favorite photos of the two of you together, and have it framed either in a plain frame or a frame with the date of the wedding or “Bridesmaid” inscribed on it. The great thing about this gift is that your bridesmaid can put this photo on their desk at work or somewhere in their home, and every time they look at it, they will think of you and the wonderful memories you share.
Pay for Their Hair and Makeup
When it comes to hair and makeup, some brides may want their bridesmaids all to have the same makeup and hairstyle, while others are open to different variations. If you are someone who wants to have all of your bridesmaids looking the same, then make their lives easier by paying for a professional to do their hair and makeup! This is a great gift for your bridesmaids, especially if there are a lot of them flying in from out of town and you chose a bridesmaid dress that is on the more expensive side.
If you are more lenient about hair and makeup for your wedding, but you still want to help ease the financial burden, then you can gift your bridesmaids some of the essentials! Give each of them a makeup bag with blush, lipstick, mascara, and eyeliner that they can use on the wedding day. You can also throw in travel sized curling wands or straighteners if you want to help with hair as well as makeup.
Between traveling, helping out with wedding preparations, and attending all of the wedding festivities, your wedding can be hectic and stressful for not only you, but also for your bridesmaids! As a thank you for putting up with the months and months of planning, you can thank your bridesmaids with a relaxation kit that can help them rewind once the wedding is over. You can find relaxation kits online, or you can put together a box with a few items that are carefully picked out for each bridesmaid. Include items such as bath bombs, scented candles, face masks, and some sweet treats! You may even decide to include a customized champagne glass that your bridesmaids can use right away on the morning of the wedding. This relaxation kit will be a great way to unwind, and it will truly show how much you appreciate all of the hard work and dedication your bridesmaids put into making your big day something special.
