Ruby's Blog | Gifts for the Wedding Party

Hello Bride & Groom’s To Be!

I’m Ruby the Rochester Bride! As a newlywed of the Rochester area, I love sharing my knowledge of the wedding experience with newly engaged couples. This week I can’t wait to share with you some ideas for wedding party gifts!

{1}Robes: Get personalized robes for all your bridesmaids, so they have something to wear while getting ready for the big day.
{2}Tote bags: Tote bags filled with little items that each of your individual bridesmaids will love is a great gift. Add some essentials for the actual wedding day too!
{3} Jewelry: Any type of jewelry is a sentimental gift to give to your bridesmaids. You could also make it a little more personal by getting the jewelry engraved with their initials or first name.
{4} Spa Day: Your bridesmaids have been by your side and worked hard to make sure your day will be as special as possible, so now you all deserve some pampering! Head to the spa, and give your ladies a gift certificate or pay for their treatments while you're all there.
{5} Wine Glasses: For the bridesmaids that love to party, get them fun wine glasses! These gifts are perfect because there are so many ways they can be personalized to match each of your friends.

{1} Army Knife: For your "manly man" friends, a pocket army knife would be a fun gift! You can get them engraved with each groomsmen's name as well.
{2} Mug: Get your guys a beer mug with their favorite team on it! This will show you appreciate them, even if they routinely root against your team.
{3} Flask: A flask is a classic and great groomsman gift.  Pair it with their favorite bottle for something extra special.
{4} Shaving kit: You want your groomsmen to look their best on the big day, so get them a personalized shaving kit. They can have it for the wedding, and continue to use it after as well!
{5} Pocket watch: They may be considered old fashioned, but pocket watches are still a special and classy gift. 

Flower Girl:
{1} Camera: Everyone is going to be taking picture at the wedding, and you don't want your flower girl to feel left out!  Giver her a cute, disposable or digital camera that she can use of the big day.
{2} Star Bracelet: Show your flower girl that she is a star, and has an important job on your wedding day.
{3} Stool: She is going to want to get all dolled up just like the big girls, so a custom painted stool will be a fun gift for your flower girl to use.
{4} Stuffed Animal: Stuffed animals are always popular among little girls, so get her favorite animal dressed as a flower girl too! This is a gift she is sure to treasure. 

Ring Bearer:
{1} Sports Apparel: You can’t go wrong with sports. Have a ball from your ring bearers favorite sport custom made with his name on it.
{2} Harmonica: Little boys love to make noise, so give him something that will help him make noise in a musical way!
{3} Piggy Bank: Decorate or purchase a piggy bank just for you ring bearer. Boys love to find lose change, and now he will have somewhere to keep it all! 
{4} Silver Yo Yo: Giving the ring bearer something to play with before and after the wedding is always a good idea.
{5} Sheriff Badge: Kids love to feel in charge. Give your ring bearer a personalized sheriff badge made just for him.

Just remember, the members of your bridal party give a lot of their time and money to be a part of your special day, so saying Thank You with any kind of token is important! Keep in mind their personalities & your budget as a couple.
