Their bridesmaid gifts really shouldn’t be something you want them to wear to the wedding itself. It’s meant to thank them for being in the wedding.. that’s why they are normally given the day of or at the rehearsal.

@daniellemc:  I got my girls a bunch of small things in addition to a pair of earrings I wanted them each to wear to the wedding. I think I am going to give them their gifts at the Rehearsal dinner and I mentioned I bought them their earrings for the wedding so they knew in advance. 🙂

@daniellemc:  I gave my girls flowers for their hair as a thank you, but I gave it to them the day of the wedding. I think what you want to do sounds good. Give it to them at the bridal shower or maybe have a smaller get-together with them and give it to them there, esepcially if this is an emotional gift.

My best friend gave it to us all the morning of the wedding.  It was a beautiful Tiffany necklace.  I wore it then and there!

She also didn’t have a rehearsal dinner, it was a Jewish wedding.  But I always thought the morning of was standard.

@daniellemc:  I think it’s totally ok to give them jewelry as their gift. Honestly, every wedding I was a bridesmaid in, I was given jewelry as the gift that we wore for the wedding. None of us had a problem with it and I’m doing the same for my girls with a couple added extras. I’m also giving them their gifts the day of the wedding because it’s pretty much expected that they willbe getting jewelry lol

@daniellemc:  I think you are good to go than! They’re going to love what you’re getting them, especially since it’s something that’s personal to all of you =)
