I wanted to get some opinions on how to “give” my bridesmaids their gifts. Some of the gifts are services per say (spa day, hair, make up,etc) but I dont want them to think Ive forgotten them (aka that those are part of their gifts!)
Here is what I have for my girls-
spa day (mani, pedi, massage) day before the wedding
hair and makeup day of wedding
Bridesmaid tanks to wear to the spa
painted wine glasses for the head table
Bridesmaid “survival kits”- Im going to put these in really cute totes I bought and I figured I might throw a few additional items in there as well (a candle or something)
Is there a way to sort of present a lot of this to them at the rehearsal dinner or at another time?

I have usually seen Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts presented at the Rehearsal Dinner when the couple gives a little speech thanking their parents and bridal party for all they have done.
You can make cute “gift certificates” for the services you are paying for and add them in the totes.

thats a great idea! any bees have examples of “gift certificates” they made?

You could also give them cards detailing the services you’re giving them.

are these gifts sufficient since the bulk of them are wedding related? Do I need to do something else?

Yes, these are sufficient gifts. And, I agree, at the rehearsal dinner.

I think your gifts are definitely sufficient! The Rehearsal Dinner is a great place to give them! I was thinking about presenting my gifts at the bridal shower…not sure if that’s a good idea or not though =/

@arametta127: when is your bridal shower? I think it could be a good idea if you want to make it more between you and your girls (as opposed to the whole wedding party, etc). I think the only concern would be that people might feel left out at the bridal shower?
