Luxury Gifts for your Bridal Party

Your bridal party is your emotional and moral support through the entire wedding journey. They are there for your dress fitting, sometimes even accompanying you to tastings, but more often than not they are a shoulder to lean on when things can inevitably get overwhelming.  Giving them a gift on the day of your wedding is a great way to show them just how much you appreciate their love and support and how happy you are that they are an important part of your special day.



Here are some of our favorite luxury gifts:


1.     Tory Burch Flip Flops – these classic thongs are great for relaxing at home or when on holiday. Every time your bridesmaids wear them they’ll think of you! (Click here for options)



2.     Robes – we love the idea of giving your bridesmaids a gorgeous silk or plush robe If you give these early enough, these can even be used on the morning of the wedding and incorporated into some great coordinated ‘getting ready shots’ (Click here for options


3.     Anya Hindmarch Cosmetics Case -  This sleek pouch comes in a variety of colors, pack it with a fragrance or perhaps a signature lipstick for your bridal party to wear at your wedding (Click here for options)

4.     Book a post-wedding spa appointment – give your bridesmaids a day of pampering! You could even arrange for this to take place when you are back from your honeymoon, as an opportunity to spend some relaxing time with your bridal party now the wedding is over.

Our favorite Butler-passed Appetizers

Adding a Cocktail hour to your event schedule before your Wedding Reception gives both guests and bridal party alike the chance to freshen up and relax following the ceremony, before the real fun begins. This is also a great opportunity to allow your guests to interact in an informal setting, with perhaps a signature cocktail being served. Many people also like to serve a little food, giving their guests a small snack to keep them going. It is important to remember, however, that guests will eat a full meal at the Reception, and so the food served prior should consist mainly of light, fun appetizers.
