Just wondering if I am supposed to give all of my bridesmaids a small gift of thanks on the day of my shower (which they are hosting)?
I helped to host two of their showers and didn’t receive anything that day but if it is the correct thing to give them something, then I want to do it correctly!
Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

I think it’s really up to you. I am planning on giving my BMs their gift during the bridal luncheon a few days before the wedding. But I’m not sure if you’re talking about the actual Bridesmaid or Best Man gift or just a "thank you" for putting on the shower. I don’t think there’s anything that says you HAVE to, but I think it would be okay if you did. Defnitely a nice gesture!

I think it depends on what you feel is easiest. I you are planning on giving them a gift for the shower, is it easiest to purchase something and givie to them while they are all with you? (Maybe you’re unlikely to see them again before the rehearsal.) Or is there too much on your plate to have this all put together for the shower? (maybe an extra week or so would be less stressful.)
Either way you do it, I think what’s important is the thank you. It will be warmly received.

I think this one is completely up to you, and what you feel most comfortable doing! I think giving each of your BMs is a lovely gesture, and that they would be very touched if you were to do that….but I don’t think it’s something that you HAVE to do. I plan on giving each of my girls one big gift/a bunch of little gifts right before the wedding as a thank you for everything….shower, bachelorette, being an attendant, and mostly being an incredible friend. I will definitely send them all heartfelt thank you notes after all the the big events like the b-party and the shower! Hope this helps!

I have a separate “BM gift” already purchased, so this would be more like a shower thank you only. or I could cheat and give them their official Bridesmaid or Best Man gift that day so that everyone sees it (non-wedding item).
thanks for the fast input!
