Morning! I was a bad bride, I didn’t get my bridesmaids anything. Not because I didn’t want to, but after some unexpected costs and lack of time before the wedding we just didn’t get round to buying something special for each of them. We picked up little pandora bracelets for my flower girls ages in advance so thankfully they got a keep sake but I feel so bad that my girls didn’t. So here is a little bit of inspiration for you, I would also love to know what you gave your maids so please leave a comment to inspire us!
It is so hard deciding, and even more so if you have a few gorgeous girls to buy for. No matter what you buy, popping it in a cute Alphabet Bags tote is definitely the way to go. I love the idea of buying an ‘experience’ for everyone to go on before of after the wedding and afternoon tea anywhere (especially The Ritz) would be lovely. My current favourite perfume is French Lime Blossom from Jo Malone, buying perfume for someone else is tricky but you could pick something different for each one of your ladies. In my honest opinion, chocolate is the best gift in the world and these Charbonnel et Walker truffles are my all time favourite. I would live off them if I could.
Pretty robes, or monogrammed robes would be perfect for your ‘getting ready’ photos and a cute keepsake. The flower subscription is a great idea, you can sign your maids up to receive pretty flowers for the next three months after the wedding.
