I need LAST minute and I mean, my wedding is Saturday (last minute, advice!
I’ve purchased gifts for my entire wedding party and all parents, no problem there.
We are having a very small rehearsal dinner (just wedding party and their guests and parents) which is where I will give out the gifts.
Do you think it is necessary /or appropriate to purchase a small gift/gift card for the significant other of members of our wedding party just for allowing their husbands and wives in the party to accommodate our schedules? Also girlfriends/boyfriends of our parents whom we are not really getting gifts for…
What do you think?

I don’t think, is necessary,but it will be a extra and nice gift. You can give them something cute and cheap, like a chocolate jar,or something little and cute.

My Future Sister-In-Law did, she bought like cigars for the guys and 5 dollar starbucks giftcards for the girls…cheap and easy…
i think i will do this as well if my rehearsal dinner ends up being smaller than i think it will probably be.

It is absolutely not necessary but I think the SOs of your wedding party would see it as a nice gesture.
Something simple like the $5 Starbucks gift cards that totheislnds suggested would be perfect!

It is not necessary. I have never seen that done.

I think they all like coffee, so that would be excellent!

I’ve never heard of doing it and think it would never be expected. I’d leave it at bridal party and parents if it was me.

I don’t think it’s necessary–the meal in itself is a gesture of gratitude.
If you really wanted to, make it very small and either handmade or personal–coffee or tea that has some significance to you or your location, homemade cookies, lemons from your parents’ tree, a DVD of a classic movie that you and your Darling Husband love…I would NOT do a starbucks gc, personally, because I think that’s just a bit weird (“thank you for sharing your SO with me and my wedding. Here’s a $5 gc!”). And if doing that, I’d probably give it to everyone at the party, not just the SOs, like a party favor.
