i gave my girls their gifts at the rehearsal dinner the day before. that’s usually when most brides do it.

if you’re not having a rehearsal dinner, i’d do it at the luncheon the day before. i wouldn’t do it the morning of the wedding since it can get kind of hectic with everyone getting ready and making sure everything is running smoothly.

We’re going to give our bridal party gifts the day before. I don’t think I’m going to do a ‘everyone stop what you’re doing so we can hand out gifts’. I tried to make them personal, so we’ll hand them out throughout the day. Hoping to get a private moment with each of them. 🙂

I couldn’t decide between morning of, or at rehearsal dinner. FMIL said rehearsal dinner, it gets too rushed the morning of!

I’ve been a BM a few times and got my gifts at the rehearsal dinner.  The bride handed them to each of us individually so it wasn’t a big production.

I gave it to them the morning of before hair and makeup arrived whilst we were having tea. I got them all the same gift, so wanted them to get it together. My MOH got an extra gift so she got that the night before as I was staying at hers.
