    @inspiration86:  this is a good question, I’m wondering the same thing but I think it’s usually done on the wedding day!

    @inspiration86:  I gave the bridesmaids their gifts the day before the wedding when we all went to have our nails done! We gave parents their gifts that night at the rehearsal dinner! I also gave the bridesmaids necklaces at my bridal shower as a thank you for hosting it!

    I gave them at the rehearsal dinner.  I didn’t want them to have to deal with them day-of, seemed too likely that they would get lost/left behind.

    I order them shirts with their titles on it and the groom and I name with wedding date, that I handing out when they purchased their dress. The other gift which will be clutches will be given the day of the wedding before pictures

    The night before after the rehearsal at the church my Mum did us all dinner. Towards the end of the night I gave them their presents then.

    Depends on what the gift was; if it was one of those clutches with the emergency kits, then I’d go with the rehearsal dinner. If it was more like jewellery not intended as part of their outfit, I’d go with after the wedding.

    If they decide to do hair/makeup with me, i’ll probably do it in the morning while we’re getting ready. Or else I’ll do it at the rehearsal.

    Not to mention some of the bridesmaids will be getting better gifts based on their effort.
