I don’t think it will be strange. That is when I plan to give my bridal party their gifts.

I think they are usually presented at the rehearsal dinner.  I think it’s common knowledge that only the bridal party/parents receive gifts during that time, since they are standing up for you guys.  If you are uncomfortable about it, you can present them on the day of while you’re getting ready.  🙂

I felt the same way as you. I pulled my bridesmaids off to the side the night before to give them their gifts. We didn’t have a big, formal rehearsal dinner though.

I plan on giving my BMs their gifts when I take them to lunch a few days before the wedding, but we’ll likely give our parents their gifts on the day of the wedding. I’m not sure about when Fiance will give the GMs and our officiant their gifts.

We’ll be giving bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts before the rehearsal dinner at another event.  We’ll be giving hostess gifts and flower girl and ring bearer gifts at the rehearsal dinner.  Parents gifts we will give the day of.

I felt awkward about it too especially because it felt like I was giving something physically much smaller to my bridesmaids (custom necklaces for the day) as what the groomsmen were getting (vest and tie). They were the same price but the necklaces were in much smaller boxes. Instead, we both gave them to the guys and gals as we were getting ready on the day itself, since the gifts were to be worn with their outfits anyway.

@MrsRichard:  I gave my BMs their gifts at the Bridesmaid’s luncheon I threw for them.  We gave our parent’s gifts on the wedding day and DH gave his gifts to his Groomsmen on the wedding day. 

It’s not strange to do it at the rehearsal.  However, if you have readers or program attendants, you may want to consider giving them a gift, too.

I’m going to give it to my girls on the morning of the wedding. I want my photographer to capture the moment 🙂 And their gifts are going to be used while getting ready (custom champagne glasses/mini bottles of champagne and satin Victoria’s Secret robes) so I thought it would be perfect
