When are people planning to present wedding party with their gifts? Privately or during speeches? Thanks! :-)
I am planning on doing it during speeches except the gift I am giving my dad. That will be privately before he walks me down the aisle x
I gave all of mine out in the morning rather than adding extra time onto speeches. Xxx
Because ours are to be worn during the day we are giving our gifts in the morning when getting ready x
I gave my bridesmaids their presents privately in the morning as it was jewellery for them to wear on the day. We presented the rest during the speeches but it's entirely up to you what you prefer.
Normally it's when the speeches are done. But depends on what gifts you are giving. If it's jewellery for your bridesmaid's to wear. Then give them when you are all getting ready x
I am going to have my flower girl/page boy and bridesmaids gifts on the tables at meal and mention in speech. Then I will present the top table with their presents when they are mentioned x
I gave my bridesmaids their thank you presents on the hen weekend away so I would have less to do in the run up to the wedding ...made it easier for me as less items on the list to remember ....
Gifts for thank you to my mum on the day ...
I am planning on leaving the gifts in their room to our parents!!
During the speeches but gave my Mum extra because she had gone above and beyond to help us so I gave that to her on her own before the wedding x
We are giving gifts to the wedding party and parents on the morning as we get ready, we have some little things we will give the night before and we will do the usual flowers during speeches xx
We done them privately the day before. I felt like there was no need for everyone else to see the gifts that we bought.
I gave my grandad a gift privately before the wedding, some cufflinks that said 'grandfather of the bride' and then had another little gift on his table with his favour, my bridesmaids I gave them their presents in the morning (shoes and a matching bag with wine, chocolate and other bits) xx
I gavemy presents to my parents the night before, got my dad to deliver presents to my son and husband on the morning of the wedding and lined up the presents for the bridesmaids first thing in the morning when they arrived in my hotel room xx
We are giving ours the night before the wedding as we are all going out for a meal and some gifts are things they can use on the day itself x

I was going to do it during speeches but I'd quite like the wedding party to have theirs before after thinking about it a lot. I also think I'm going to do little gifts for anybody that has helped us before but then do gifts for parents during the ceremony as that's thanking them for raising us as well as for helping with the day. We will be saying all the thank you messages in a speech but I was just wondering about where we would put all the gifts etc and think it would take a while to hand them all out.
Hi WE haven't discussed this yet but I thought before would be best :)
Privately. Think I'll give my bridesmaids and my mum things in the morning. And then my partner can give his best men stuff when he wants. Then other parents we will give stuff later on in the evening or the next day?
We are thanking everything in the speeches but giving gift in person, bridesmaids and best men will be before, flower girls will be after. Depends what suits you.
Bridesmaids and groomsmen when getting ready on the morning. Then parent at the speeches x
Privately before the ceremony x
I gave my girls theirs the night before the wedding. They were all staying at mine and had been at work so their presents were pretty much everything they would need the next day so they only needed to bring pjs and underwear so it wasnt a worry they would forget things. There was a range of make up jewellery pashminas handbags perfumes umbrellas (winter wedding lol) mini alcohol personalised cups etc for them to pick from. I bought everything over the course of a year from ebay hong kong bar the jewellery so it cost very little to do bit they got loads.
Thanks ladies! 😊 xx
We did ours at the speeches x
I'm going to do it before the wedding so they can wear on wedding day. Probably at Hag do.
I am going to be giving my gifts out during speeches.
