I know traditionally bridesmaids presents are given at the rehearsal dinner. I have been toying with the idea of giving mind to my girls at the bachorlette party…here is why, we are having a destination wedding and it will be more stuff for me to figure out how to get down there…plus part of the gift is a tote bag that they could use on as a carry on bag….. What do you think?

We are giving them at the Bridesmaid or Best Man Tea before the rehearsal.

In your situation, I would give them their gifts early. There’s no sense in carting all that stuff with you if you don’t have to. They’ll probably appreciate getting it early so they don’t have to transport it back (depending on what it is).
ETA: We’ll be giving our Bridal Party their gifts at the rehearsal but we’re not having a Destination Wedding.

I would definitely just give them to them early. I mean, I think they are going to be stoked about it either way, and it makes way more sense logistically. I have no clue when I’ll be giving my girls theirs. LOL. We aren’t really having a traditional rehearsal dinner, so I’ll have to figure something out!

I’m doing destination too, and I worried about this same thing. So, all along, throughout wedding planning, I have been sending my girls random packages with little gifts.. fun things. For their final present, they are getting gift certificates to the spa for wedding day. A few of my girls said this is the best wedding they have ever been a part of because I send fun packages with random, cutesy stuff. I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t love getting mail?! 🙂
