Not many bride and grooms have the seemingly endless budget enjoyed by Kate and William on their big day, and if you’re not careful, wedding costs can easily spiral out of control. No one likes to cut corners on their wedding day however, and we believe that with a bit of time, effort and creative thinking, you can have your wedding cake and eat it (so to speak).
To help get the creative juices flowing, we’ve put together some great ideas for stunning bridesmaid thank you gifts that won’t blow the budget.
If you want to buy your bridesmaids jewellery, then choose inexpensive costume or fashion jewellery. And why not break with tradition by giving your bridesmaids their gift before the wedding, to wear as part of their outfit. This will also help accessorising your bridesmaid’s outfits.
Alternatively, plump for something more personal and present them with a framed favourite photograph of you both from your earlier, single years together. It’s bound to trigger some great memories.
Budget gifts for young bridesmaids
If you have very young children for bridesmaids then you might want to give them a thank you gift that they’ll love immediately. A doll dressed as a bridesmaid, bridesmaid teddy bear or a wedding teddy bear are reasonably priced gifts that young children will adore.
Personalised sweets, chocolates or cup cake gifts are fun low cost thank you gifts for young bridesmaids.
Books are also an alternative thank you gift for young bridesmaids. You could present them with a children’s classic and write your own message of thanks inside the cover. Other ideas for budget thank you gifts for young bridesmaids include personalised money boxes and jewellery boxes
Always remember, you’re thanking them for helping you make your wedding day special and it’s the thought, not the price tag, that really matters.
