Wedding Gift Thank You Ideas

A wedding gift thank you is traditionally given by the bride and groom to all the people who

  • has taken a key role in their wedding, or

  • has helped with the planning and preparations for their wedding.

Most newly-weds give thank you gifts as a sign of their love and gratitude to everyone who has helped to make their wedding day special.

Who Should You Give A Wedding Thank You Gift To?

One of the worries that lots of brides have is that they will get their wedding thank you gifts wrong!

Beau-coup Party Favors

As a basic rule of thumb, you'll want to consider giving a gift (or a token gift) to everyone who has been involved with making your wedding into a wonderful, memorable day.

A gret friend who is also a professional wedding planner told me that she always advises brides as follows:

  • When someone has given up their time / skills free of charge ... you should acknowledge this with a nice thank you gift, a mention in the wedding speeches and a handwritten thank you note too.

  • If some one has been paid for a service, a wedding gift thank you is not necessary, but a thank you note and mention in the wedding speeches is.

While not strictly 'required' I think it's a nice touch to give token wedding thank you gifts to some of your specialist service providers too ... especially your hairdresser and beautician!

Luckily, there's a huge range of gift ideas and budgets to choose from. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Thank you gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen

  • A great thank you gift for bridesmaids is jewelry, as it can be simple or expensive, as you like.
  • You could also give them the gift beforehand so that they can wear it on the wedding day.
  • For groomsmen, gift them a keepsake such as a flask, money clip or an engraved duffel bag.
  • Again, you can also gift the groomsmen some things before the wedding such as cuff links, which they can wear during the wedding ceremony.

Thank you gift for the parents

Wedding Thank You Gift for Bridesmaid / Mother

  • It is equally important to thank your parents as thanking your friends for being there to celebrate with you on your special day.
  • Don't think of it as a gift; instead think of it as something that symbolizes continual ties between the families.
  • As long as your gift comes from your heart, it does not matter whether it is lavish, inexpensive, or homemade.
  • You can gift them vases, photo frames or even plaques bearing words of appreciation for their help and support.

Apart from giving the gifts, you also need to send a wedding gift thank you note thanking every guest for the thoughtful presents they got for you.
