On your wedding day, you want everything to go exactly as you have always pictured in your head. You want your dress to be like something out of a fairytale, you want your cake to be jaw dropping and you want your best friends at your side as you commit your life to the person you love. With all of this in place, your wedding day will undoubtedly be perfect, but to create this setting there is a lot of hard work required.
To thank the bridesmaids and groomsmen, it is customary to pick out a gift and present it to the helpers prior to the wedding. One of the most popular gifts for both men and women is jewelry. This is a gift that can be made a part of the wedding, and also be worn afterwards to always look back on your big day with fond memories.
Here are a few tips on how to pick out the perfect jewelry for your wedding party.
- Pick out something they will wear – This is particularly the case with groomsmen, but can also go for bridesmaids. Consider what the person wears most often and find something specific to them. It is completely acceptable to pick out different pieces for different people, as long as the underlying theme of jewelry is adhered to. Therefore, if your maid of honor never leaves home without a necklace on, give her a special necklace to wear on the day of and after the wedding.
- Set a budget for yourself – Going shopping can be a fun excursion, but you can quickly get carried away with picking out the perfect pieces for your friends. During this already money-intensive event, setting a budget is a wise idea to make sure you do not overspend on gifts you cannot afford. With this said, keep the budget reasonable so you can still purchase nice gifts that you are confident they will love and will last them a lifetime.
- Get it engraved – To add extra meaning to your gift, have each piece engraved with the date or with your monogram. This will always serve as a reminder of your friendship and marriage, and will also help them to remember your anniversary for years to come.
