Behind every bride there is a team of women behind her making sure everything leading up to the big day is perfect. From helping pick the dress, to advice on décor and your ever important hen party, they have been through everything with you. There’s your maid of honour, the grooms mother, the flower girls and your bridesmaids to consider and trying to find the right gift to thank them can be tricky. We’ve scoured the internet to find the most popular gifts with one theme, customisation. Any bridesmaid gift can be made that much more special and personal with engraving.
Necklaces & Lockets
Nothing is more visible that a statement necklace. Varieties can include named pendants, engraved tags or lockets with personal messages or images. You may even want to tie in the metal used to match your wedding accessories if giving this gift before the big day.
Bracelets come in a variety of textures, shapes and materials from cuffs, single bands to a collection of intertwined bracelets. Customise with an inscription or try to find individually named ones for every bridesmaid.
