I’ve been trying to think of something really thoughtful for my darling maids,
It was a done deal but now i’m having second thoughts…I was going to get them theme park tickets, they’re £55.00 for an open day ticket and i was going to get one each for 3 of my maids (who are all best friends) and 2 for my sister so her and her boyf (who is also filming our wedding for us) can go together… I might take this one step further and get my pageboys and young bridesmaids tickets to Peppa Pig land, and then i would take them…
Is this naff?? I’m starting to think its unthoughtful…would your ‘party’ appreciate that gift!?? x

Do they all like theme parks? I like gifts that are personal to my interests, it shows that the bride really took the time to think about me as a person and not just a bridesmaid. My best friend got me tickets to the San Diego zoo (we flew from NYC to San Diego for her wedding). It was so great because i mentioned that was the one place i really wanted to go when we came to town, an she picked up on it a got a great gift.

That is super cute of the bride!! Two of my girls are students in London, they would LOVE it- they can barely afford to eat (always manage to drink tho!) so i think they would really appreciate it, maybe not the girl from down South, it would cost her to get up there…hmmm good point! Maybe i’ll get a ticket for myself and then i could drive her..but now i want to go to the Zoo! Probably London rather than San Diego tho!
Thanks for your thoughts x

If your girls like theme parks then go for it but if you’re just doing it because you think it’s cool, then I would probably reconsider. As for your question… to be honest, no, my girls probably wouldn’t like that gift because they’re like me and not really into amusement parks (we have one locally so it’s not exactly a new and exciting thing for us).
Again though, it all depends on what your friends enjoy so whether we think it’s a good idea is all relative.

Just repeating what PP’s have said. If they like theme parks then it is a nice gift. I would enjoy it, but my sister would not. She hates rollercoasters so she never goes.

I hate roller coasters but I still think its a great gift! I might not get the intended use out of it but I love when a group of us girls go out and hang out doing something different 🙂

Personally for me and the BM’s I had that gift would be a huge no. However if your BM’s like theme parks then go for it
