Do you give a separate give to your bridal party for hosting your shower and/or bach party or do you give them one gift at the rehearsal dinner for that plus being in the wedding?
I’ve argued with myself about this for awhile now to no avail. Now that my shower is quickly approaching, I need to figure this out. So, what do you say bees?
For reference, I’ve already bought my Bridal Party gifts for the wedding. I planned on giving it to them at the Rehearsal Dinner. I’m spending about $100 for the Bridesmaid or Best Man and $200 for my Maid/Matron of Honor because she’s spearheading the shower and probably paying for the bulk of it. Again, so that gift is in a way for the shower, too but I don’t want to be rude if I don’t get them a thank you gift sooner for the shower alone…help a bee out!

Are all the BMs hosting the shower? I never attend a party without a hostess gift. So, I would bring something for the hostess. That is a lot of trouble and a big expense to host a shower.

Skittles131: I gave everyone who took part in my shower a SMALL gift at the shower, with thank you card.
My two aunts, mom and Future Mother-In-Law all split the cost of the resturant so I got them something a little more than I got my bridesmaids, who split the cost of invites and decorations.
I got the older woman candles and oil diffusers, my MOHs mason jar mugs filled with kisses and a candle and my bridesmaids a candle. It was something little but just something extra to have on hand that day to say thanks. They have really adorable candles at home goods that look gifty (come in pretty packaging).
I plan on giving my bridesmaids their gift at my bachelorette party (they paid to take me away for a weekend). And my groomsmen, ring bearer and flower girl the day of the wedding. I am not doing it at the rehearsal dinner because there will be other children at the event who I am not giving gifts to.

I gave mine a bottle of wine and a thank you card for hosting the shower, then I’ll give them their BM’s gifts the night before the wedding.
