I was wondering when you gave your thank you gifts to your bridesmaids? I have a few items in the one I put together that would be great for the day of but is it better to give it to them more in advance?
I gave them their gifts at the rehearsal dinner (we had it the night before)
The morning of I gave them silk robes and a shawl (October wedding).
I also paid for their hair & makeup
I was considering giving them all either getting ready robes or pjs (something a little different) also I'll probably give them each a necklace or bracelet that either says bridesmaids or something else. I am also going to pay for their hair to be done.
I think you could give them their gifts at the rehearsal (if you're having one). That way they have it for the morning of the wedding. Or, you could give it first thing, that way no one will accidentally forget something from it at home.
I gave jewelery and monogrammed makeup bags. Other great ideas I've seen are gift cards to spas or fav restaurants, wine, or of course you can shop for them like it is their birthday and get them any sort of gift you know they would like
