I have never been in a wedding and haven’t attended many. In my research I’ve gotten different opinions – did you get your bridal party gifts? Like a small thank you for being in the wedding? I got them all a little proposal gift that said “will you be my bridesmaids/flower girl/ring bearer” but should I do something closer to the wedding??

Yes we got them all gifts and gave them to everyone at the rehearsal dinner.

Yes, you should give them gifts right before the wedding (rehearsal or getting ready) as a thank you for all the money, time, effort they spent being in your wedding, helping out with pre-wedding events, etc. I gave mine gift cards to specific places they liked along with several other items. I gave them robes to get ready in as well but that was not a “gift”.

Bridesmaids gifts before the wedding are a nice little way to say thanks. It doesn’t have to be super elaborate — I’m getting my bridesmaids a necklace, personalized stationary, and a box of champagne gummy bears.

In my experience being in 5 bridal parties and being a bride, gifts are usually given at the rehearsal dinner. I have receieved jewelry, sweets, tote bag, button down shirt, mug…
I wrote a sweet note to each of my girls, gave them a tote bag for easy use for the day of the wedding, a personalized travel mug(they all love them and still use them regularly!), earrings, a mini-emergency kit, and some sweets.

They’re spending a lot of money to be in your wedding so it is a nice gesture, not required but can be considered a bit rude if you dont. I got my girls matching tennis bracelets and wrote them each a nice thank you note.
Just as a note, paying for their makeup/dresses/hair does not count as a gift. That is for your wedding so if you chose to pay for that it’s up to you but not really a gift.

I got my girls rompers to wear getting ready, a bracelet, a personalized hanger, and on the hunt for a few other little things today!
