Giving thank you gifts to bridal party

When is a good time to give my girls their thank you gifts? Is it always just right before the wedding like rehearsal dinner or getting ready? I’m wondering if it would be weird to give them their gifts at my bachelorette? Help please!

    After the rehearsal my girls are coming to my place for a sleepover so I’ll give them their gifts then bc there will be some things for them to use that night and the next morning when we’re getting ready for the big day!

    Both my DH and I did our gifts at the rehearsal dinner.

    I did mine while we were getting ready as both my BMs live far away and the rehearsal dinner was chaotic.

    I'll be doing it while getting ready because all my bridesmaids are out of town so some may not be able to attend the rehearsal. Plus I'll want it captured as well.

    We will likely give ours the night of the rehearsal dinner.

    Since it’s just your bridesmaids at the bachelorette, you could do it then. Depending what it is, they might be able to use it before or for the wedding.

    I'm doing mine the night of the rehearsal because there are things in the bag I bought for them to get ready, and some of the girls will be getting ready with the groom (grooms-ladies), so I wanted to make sure they all have everything they need. Our rehearsal dinner is just bridal party, so we won't be excluding anyone and that way, they can store the rest of the gift away for later.

    If you're giving them something for the day-of, then I would do it closer to the wedding to make sure they don't forget them. Otherwise, I would say whenever you'd like is a good time. Your bachelorette sounds fun! Enjoy!

    We did the day of the wedding as it made it easy for pictures and if they wanted to use any of the fragrances. Perfune samples for MOHs and cologne sets to BM BEST MEN.

    It is just bridesmaids at my bachelorette. The 4 of us are spending 2 days in Canmore.

    I vote for the morning of. The bachelorette might have guests that aren’t in your wedding party, AND people sometimes drink a lot at bachelorette parties and could misplace things.

    It would only be weird/awkward to give them at your bachelorette if there's other guests that are not in your wedding party attending. If there are other guests, don't give it to them then to avoid the awkwardness. If it's just your bridesmaids then go for it!

    I was one of the bridesmaid for my bestfriend's wedding and she gave us a gift the morning of the wedding, just before getting ready. I don't think it would be weird at your bachelorette. Anytime you feel it is the right time.
