Spoiling Your Bridesmaids Without Breaking The BankPosted by Hannah Carrier on June 7 2017.
Having a wedding is an expensive task. Between paying all the vendors and feeding all your friends and family, it’s no wonder that many brides are DIY-ing most of their décor, favors, and gifts. This is a great way to save money but often results in more work for the bridesmaids. Of course, your favourite ladies will be more than happy to help, but you want to make sure you go out of your way to show them how grateful you are. Here are some budget-friendly ways to show your bridesmaids they really are your best gals.
Many bridesmaids pay for their own dresses but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for all the accessories! You are probably aiming for a certain look anyway so why not buy the bridesmaid necklaces and earrings? You can find beautiful bridal party jewellery sets that include matching necklaces and earrings for everyone! By ordering in bulk and all at once, you save time, effort and money on shipping! Your bridesmaids not only get some beautiful jewellery for your big day but they’ll think of you whenever they wear it. And hopefully, the jewellery will be something they’ll love so much they’ll wear it on a regular basis!
There are tons of customizable gifts you can get for your bridesmaids but be sure to think about each woman’s personality. Sometimes, getting everyone the same thing just won’t work. Luckily, it’s easy to personalise gifts. Do you want your ladies to be able to relax after all the help they give you? Make these homemade bath bombs in each of their favourite scents! Does someone not have a bathtub (#apartmentlife)? Make lotion or massage oil instead! If you want to get everyone a cute accessory, you can look into what type of hat flatters certain face shapes and get everyone their corresponding style! Getting everyone things you’re sure they’ll like will not only make them happy, but it will ensure that your gift is actually used and enjoyed! Each bridesmaid will know you really care about them and pay attention to their preferences.
If your bridesmaids are helping out with DIY goodies, you can make it a lot more fun by hosting killer craft parties. Not only will you have more fun if you’re making everything in a group full of laughter, but this gives you the opportunity to spoil your girls with food and drinks! Theme each get-together with fun snacks and champagne cocktails. Put on some music everyone likes and get your craft on! Everyone will appreciate the effort you put into making craft-time as fun as possible.
These are just a couple of ways you can show your bridesmaids how grateful you are for all their help and support! Now get out there and start party planning!
