We’re not having a rehearsal dinner, and our actual rehearsal will be very casual and only with whoever can attend (not sure if 2 of my bridesmaids can because of work). Is it okay if I give my bridesmaids their gifts whenever I see them, even if they are not all together? Or should I just wait for the wedding day when we start to get ready? I’m giving them robes to wear (while getting ready) and bracelets to wear for the wedding. Will probably throw in something “not wedding related” as many bees have suggested.
So what do you think? Whenever I see them close to the wedding (I could just stop by all their places to drop it off or something) or on the wedding day, or any other suggestion?

I’m not having a rehearsal dinner either and I will probably be giving them their gifts on the bachelorette party weekend, or at a get together before the wedding.

@Petite_Fraise: I thought about the bachelorette party, but I’m having a small one- only 3 other girls who are not in bridal party and wouldn’t feel comfortable giving it to bridesmaisd in front of everyone.

I would give them their gift when you’re getting ready for the wedding. =)

I plan to hand my gifts out at the shower – it’s the last time all four of them will be together before the wedding (wedding is at a destination and I wanted them to have their gifts before they arrived at the destination). I don’t plan to do it publicly, I was hoping to get a few quiet moments with them before or after.
