Hi all!! is it customary to buy the maid of honor and or best man something special that you didn’t give anyone else in the bridal party? Also, are all of you brides planning on purchasing a gift for parents of the bride and groom? Thanks

I bought my maid of honor an extra gift (and presented it in private) because she planned my shower and bachelorette by herself and I wanted her to know how grateful I was.
Yes, we did purchase gifts for our parents, in hindsight it probably wasn’t necessary.

We are not doing extra gifts for the honor attendants, but it’s not a bad idea if you feel like they helped a lot more than the rest of the party. We are getting gifts for our parents.

Like PP, I did get my Maid/Matron of Honor something extra because she did throw me both a shower and Bachelorette party. I gave it to her in private.
We did get our parents something. It’s not a “wedding” thank you, rather a thank you for all of love and support throughout our lives.

jax2621: you can if you want to. It’s not tradition. But everyone appreciates a gift no matter what it is. Some of the girls may feel excluded or not as “special” so beware of that. Maybe gift it to them in private?

Swebs14: what did you give you Maid/Matron of Honor in addition? All my ideas seem lame 🙁
