I have been thinking about what to get my bridesmaids and was wondering when is the best time to present them with their present?
My wedding is not until November, however, my bridal shower is in July. Should I give it at the bridal shower or wait until the rehersal dinner? If I give it at the bridal shower, do I need to present them with another present at the rehersal dinner?

@Cruise Girl: When I was a BM, I’ve always been given the gifts at the rehersal dinner. Just one gift 🙂

I separated their gifts into two- a little fun one for shower hosting and a nicer one for at the actual act of being bridesmaids. For shower hosting, I dropped the gifts off at their house the day after the shower (because I was running late, otherwise they would have gotten them at the shower), they’ll get the other at the rehearsal. You can really do it whatever way you like!

@Cruise Girl: It’s up to you, but I would give it to the girls at the rehearsal dinner. I think you will be even more grateful for everything your girls have done for you and it will be more sentimental 🙂

This is something that I’ve been thinking about too! I was trying to remember when I got them when I was a bridesmaid and it seemed like everytime I got it at a different time.
I’ve decided to give them their gifts the day of the wedding, before I get my hair and make-up done.

Thanks everyone:-) I’m basically torn—
If I do it at the Bridal Shower– there will be people there who are not my bridesmaids- not sure how that looks.
If I do it at the Rehersal Dinner- I will most likely have all my bridesmaids present. However, my FI may not have all his groomsmen present. Can I give presents at the dinner and my Fi give his at some other point during the weekend- or do the bridesmaids and groomsmen get the presents at the same time?

I got my girls personalized koozies to give them at the bachelorette party.
Their more personal expensive gifts I’m giving to them at the rehearsal dinner. I think your FI can give the GMs in attendance their presents at the rehearsal dinner and anyone not in attendance he can give to them the day of the wedding.

I was thinking of giving my bridesmaids their gifts at the rehersal dinner that way my fiance can also give his guys theirs the same day. I plan on getting them a flower piece, a card so they can get their eyebrows threaded ( one less thing to worry about since i know all my girls are picky about their eyebrows) and a necklace with their innitails on it. Now i was wondering would it be rude to get my little sis a tiffany one? Well if my budget allows i was planning of getting the other girls a necklace from etsy and my sis also my MOH one from tiffanies?

We gave our BMs and GMs all their gifts at the rehersal dinner. It was perfect timing and went well with our thanks to them 🙂
