I haven’t decided, but since half local and half are flying in a few days early, I will likely do it the first chance I get where it’s just me and all of the bridesmaids together.  Either that or during the day before the wedding.

I’m hoping I can have a bridal tea/luncheon…maybe the weekend of the shower if they can all make it to that?

If not then, then I imagine we’ll give gifts at the rehearsal dinner.

Originally I was thinking about doing it during the rehearsal dinner but now I’m kind of changing my mind. If we don’t do it during the rehearsal dinner I’ll be giving the BMs their gifts earlier the day before the wedding (we have a bridesmaid photo shoot, nail appointments, etc) and Fiance will give his Groomsmen their gifts on the day of the wedding since they’ll all be in town and our wedding isn’t until early evening.

I gave Bridesmaid or Best Man, Groomsmen, and parent gifts at the rehearsal dinner.  Hubs and I gave a little speech thanking everyone and then handed out the gifts.  Worked perfectly.

I’m doing mine the evening before as all of the stuff is for them to wear / use for the day.

I plan on doing mine at my bridal shower so it works as a hostess/bm gift. and for my one bridesmaid who cant make it,I am going to give it to her whenever she comes down for the wedding.

@hotchildinthecity: I’m going to steal the speech idea. Thanks, good thinking 😉

I’m taking all my bridesmaids out for a Bridesmaid or Best Man brunch the day of the rehearsal.  I’ll give them their gifts then. 🙂

I’ve always seen the gifts given out at the rehearsal dinner. That’s what I’ll be doing.

I gave the girls’ their gifts the day before – right before we went to get our nails done (so no one had to worry about messing up nails when opening everything up). It was the only “alone” time I had with the girls the whole wedding weekend.  We did not want to do it at the rehearsal dinner because we did not want all the attention, etc. But like pp mention above, I have been to other weddings where they usually hand out gifts during the rehearsal dinner.

Rehearsal dinner?

I’ve typically seen it at the rehearsal dinner but Darling Husband wasn’t comfortable with that for his guys and I didn’t want to just give out half the wedding party gifts then.  That would be weird.

So we had a meeting in one of our hotel rooms with the wedding party and give them out then in private.
