Although the bride and groom are the center of attention on their wedding day there are a few other people in attendance who deserve some recognition.

The bridal attendants and the groomsmen are also an essential part of the success of the day.  It is them who make certain the bride looks lovely and is ready for the ceremony and the best man often helps to qualm the groom’s nerves.

Many brides and grooms choose special bridal party gifts to reflect their appreciation to the people participating in their wedding ceremony.

There are many bridal party gifts that are both affordable and practical.  Although it’s lovely to give a bridesmaid or groomsmen a wedding photo something special just for them should be added as well.

Watches make great bridal party gifts.  A watch is appropriate for either a male or a female.  The watches can also be engraved with the date of the wedding and the name of the bride and groom as a reminder of the special day.  Giving bridal party gifts like this are appreciated because the people receiving them will be able to use them beyond just the day of the wedding.

Key chains are another popular choice in bridal party gifts.  Some couples choose to purchase sterling silver key chains that have a locket insert.  This way a picture can be included with the key chain.  Although placing an image of the bride and groom in the insert might seem appropriate there are other alternatives.  The bride might choose to use a special picture of herself and her maid of honor or herself with a bridesmaid.  Doing this gives each person who receives one a personalized reminder of their special relationship with the bride or groom.

Another good choice for bridal party gifts is gift certificates.  The wedding will be a wonderful day but it also can bring stress.  Giving the bridesmaids a day at the spa or the groomsmen a free round of golf is a great way for them to relax.

Jewelry can also make beautiful bridal party gifts.  Matching earrings, bracelets or necklaces for the bridesmaids will add a lovely touch to the wedding photos.  The groomsmen will appreciate a nice set of cufflinks that they can use for years to come.

When it comes time for choosing bridal party gifts the bride and groom should consider the personalities of their attendants.  If the bride or groom would appreciate the gift than there’s a very good chance that the bridesmaids and groomsmen will as well.
