I’m giving my wedding party there gifts at our meal a few nights before the wedding so it’s less for them to take back home the night and day after the wedding as we fly straight out after our reception at night

We gave flowers to the mother's and sisters and bridesmaids. Cufflinks for all the men. Jewellery for the bridesmaids. Individual gift for my sister and brother in law. Little gifts for the parents, mugs, silver photo frame (engraved), a cute keyring from me to MIL and from hubby to my mum. Just little things. These were all to say thank you. Nothing to do with the wedding, but for being them, for being there over the years, for their love and support and regarding the parents for raising us/our spouse. As has been said it's up to you and your partner and your finances. Xx

Yes, gifts for the bridal party. I got a box of stuff when I was in my sister's wedding - she bought me a jewelry set, it had a card saying thank you and a bridesmaid survival kit. She got my son (who was her ring bearer) a sweet basket. My mum got flowers. I feel that gifts for the bridal party should not be connected to the wedding;what I got from my sister was in addition to what she gave me for her wedding - I got jewellery to wear on the day as well as in my gift box. They need not be expensive, just thoughtful

We gave our bridal party gift boxes when we asked them to be our bridesmaids and groomsmen (cheap bits- I got the girls nail varnish, mini fans, key ring, etc). And then on the day, I gave them all earrings which they wore on the day. I don’t think a gift needs to be expensive, but it’s defo better if it’s something they can use again and again.

I think it depends on what your are paying for I paid for my bridesmaids dresses (they chose them and they were definitely ones they would wear again) so I just gave them a small token the groom and Best man had matching hip flask with a very expensive whiskey in,also it depends on your price range and how much they have had to fork out,if they haven't had to pay much get a small,if they have have,get them something a big more expensive.xx

It's completely up to you. If they have had gifts already don't feel pressured to get them anything else unless you want to/have room in your budget. Xx

I’m not buying them gifts. Don’t really see the point of it, plus already spending a small fortune on the actual wedding.

I didn't get them anything when i asked. I intend to get a little something for each of my bridesmaids, my flower girl, the best man and each of the people who contributed financially to our wedding.
