Say “thank you” to your bridesmaids with gifts as special and unique as they are!
In the many weddings I’ve been involved in over the last decade, I’ve noticed that brides and grooms aren’t afraid to ditch tradition and follow trends that better reflect their personalities.
My personal favorite of these new trend has been mismatched bridesmaid dresses—I absolutely love that brides are embracing the unique styles of their girls and letting them choose dresses and styles that suit them best!
So why should finding a bridesmaid gift be any different?
When it comes to saying, “thank you,” to the ladies who will stand by your side on your big day, there’s no need to go with a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, find a gift that expresses your gratitude and fits their personalities (but do spend roughly the same amount on each bridesmaid).
Personalizing a gift for each girl doesn’t mean you have to run around town to shop—we turned to Macy’s Wedding Shop for bridesmaid gifts that are perfect for every personality!

Before you say “I do” – say thank you!
Bridesmaids’ gifts are often handed out prior to the wedding at the rehearsal dinner, bridesmaids’ luncheon, on the day of the wedding, or during another private moment. Make sure you set aside time to write out a heartfelt thank you card to attach to each gift, to let each lady know just how lucky you feel to have them by your side.
