There are so many wonderful and exciting moments when a Bride and Groom begin planning for their wedding day. As the date gets closer for the big day, you start to think about gifts for the bridesmaids and other attendants. You’ve chosen these people because of your relationship with them; and, you would like to give them a nice present. When planning a wedding, you are often on a budget; so, when choosing a gift for your bridesmaids and groomsmen; keeping an eye on the cost is important. Here are some ideas for cheap bridesmaids gifts.
No one wants to appear cheap when they give a gift. On the other hand, spending money unwisely will probably not make your soon- to- be spouse happy. Sticking to a budget and showing that you care about the bridesmaids and groomsmen is easy if you remember to do two things.
1) The first thing you must do is make a list of the attendants-both the groomsmen and the bridesmaids. As a couple, it would be nice if you could do this shopping together; however, it may not be realistic with the demands on your time. So, the list is a really important tool to use. You may have to refer to this list for gifts for the persons on the list that you may not know as well as your future spouse does. The list will help you if one of you is out shopping and runs across something that you may feel would be a good choice for one of those individuals.
On this list will be the name of each person representing the Groom and the Bride. Next to that person’s name will be some of that person’s likes/dislikes, hobbies, colour preferences, and favourite brands. Knowing your attendants really well will help you in putting together the list. View it as an opportunity to share with your future spouse about the people in your life; and, the reason that you asked them to stand up with you on your wedding day. Of course, this idea mainly applies to people that you have just met, as you prepare for the wedding; if you already know them well, then you should already have some great ideas.
2) As far as being budget friendly, it is important to set a specific amount that you each have decided is appropriate for each bridesmaid’s gift. Remember to keep the same limit for each gift as it would not do well to spend more on one person over another.
As far as cheap bridesmaids gifts ideas go; how about these items for the ladies who are attending the Bride: earrings, bracelets, photo frames, perfume, or gift cards/or gift certificates for a favourite restaurant, service, or store?
And for the gentlemen who will attend the Groom; how about these items: money clips, cuff links, photo frames, or gift cards/ or gift certificates? You know them best…what would please them the most and bring a smile to their faces?
Getting a cheap bridesmaids gift that is thoughtful and classy shouldn't be too difficult if you give it some thought.
