What kinds of gifts, if any, are you buying for other people who are helping out at your wedding? My niece is handing out programs and bubbles. I want to get her something but I don’t know what. My other niece is my MOH and I got her an engraved Tiffany look alike bracelet that is made from stainless steel (she has an allergy to a lot of metals).
Any suggestions? She’s 15.

I’m completely in the same boat. I’ll be curious to see what people say. Sorry I can’t be of help to you!

I’m giving my SIL a black leather clutch bag for her help at our wedding (I found out she didn’t have one at a wedding last week when she was piling all her stuff into my bag!). I think that would be a nice gift for a 15 year old as well. It’s adult, and something she could use again.

I’m not sure about your price range, but what about a small piece of jewelery or a gift card to someplace she likes (clothes, iTunes, etc)?
We got gifts for our BM, GM (didn’t have FG or RB) our parents, and our officiant. We didn’t get gifts for our ushers, but they didn’t seem to mind (it was my cousin and my husband’s HS friend).

Oh, i was going to suggest a bottle of wine but I think that’s a LITTLe inappropriate, lol
She’s 15…surely she’d love a cute little clutch? Like from Fossil or something?

I love buying presents and picking out gifts for other helpers and attendants was a great excuse to shop online and browse Etsy for months and months! I got something different for each person. For an usher who likes to cook, I got him a mortar/pestle and some specialty spices to grind. For a friend who’s leading our hymn and who loves Pride & Prejudice like I do, I found a seller on Etsy who makes jewelry from pages of that book. And one of our female ushers is a fan of this one vintage travel poster from Copenhagen, so my FI found a record cover on eBay with the print and put it in a frame from Target.
We did some slightly less personal gifts for friends of my parents who are helping out with ceremony coordination and logistics – restaurant gift certificates. No matter what it is, I think people (who are already happy to be helping at the wedding) will appreciate the gesture!

For a fifteen year old I think jewelry or anything for her ipod is she one is good.

I agree – jewelry is great, a purse is fun too and any gift card to anywhere would be a hit!
We bought gifts for the bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents and grandparents. For the bridesmaids I got some cute stuff from Swoozies – they have great gifts that can be personlized and aren’t too expensive – maybe a good source of inspiration 🙂

For our cousins manning the sign in table I may buy them a little clutch from Claires (they’re 16 and 18), and for the flower girl, who I haven’t seen in a very long time and who’s mother is my very close cousin, I was thinking of buying a little initial necklace that can grow with her.
