    I would like to give my bridesmaids and flower girl a necklace to wear for the wedding as their gift but I am worrying that when it comes to giving out the thank you gifts it will seem like we aren't giving them anything at all.

    What do you all plan to do?

    TIA x

    Work it into the speeches,
    "A big thank you to everybody involved, we hope you like your gifts" for example xx

    I don't think you need to say that you have given them something but definitely thank them for all their help during the speeches. They will know that you have given them something.
    We gave necklace and earring sets to the bms and cufflinks to the best man, ushers and dads on the morning so they could all wear them on the day. We gave flowers to the mums during speeches but everyone in the bridal party was thanked for all their help. X

    i think so many people give out the bridal party gifts and groomsman gifts in the morning so i wouldnt worry about peple thinking you havent given them anything. usually those moments are caught by the photographer too so people will be able to see when they look through your wedding photos :) xx

    thanks everyone :) i didnt want there to be an awkward silence where everyone was kinda waiting for more if you get me. :) it just makes so much more sense to give it to them in the morning. More intimate and of course they get to wear it x

    Maybe you could give the gift in the morning but just give them a thank you card during the speeches so you can give them something.

    I got mine a little silver guardian angel. You could get similar, they are inexpensive and say it's to go with your other gift. That way they still get something,
