This post is about day-of-wedding bridesmaid’s gifts, not ones to ask your bridesmaids. I had my mom bring over a variety of fruit and some pastries for us the morning of the wedding. I had all my girls come over to my hotel room and we got ready there. Since we got ready off site, I didn’t have my videographer come, just my photographer. That being said, I gave my girls their gifts the day before, after our bridesmaid’s luncheon. I didn’t want them to have to worry about coming over in their pjs and then change into what I wanted them to wear while getting ready.
For my bridesmaids gifts I got little bottles of Barefoot Pink Moscato, SunnyLife Inflatable Drink Holders, Kendra Scott earrings, and rompers. I got different Kendra Scott earrings for all my bridesmaids to wear for the wedding. All of them were gold and ivory, I picked a specific pair for my maid of honor, and then for everyone else it was dependent on what bag they picked…and of course I told them if they wanted to switch with someone they could trade! I ordered the earrings through my bridesmaid dress company and was able to get a discount. Maid of Honor, Bridesmaid 1, Bridesmaid 2, Bridesmaid 3, Bridesmaid 4, Bridesmaid 5
So it has become pretty common to give your bridesmaids something to wear for your “getting ready” photos as a part of their gift. Most brides give robes, but I did rompers. Robes are super cute and there is nothing wrong with them, but I thought really hard about it. I decided to get rompers for my bridesmaids because I thought it was something they could wear again and no one had to worry about any parts showing with photographers, hair, makeup, and potentially videographers around. I just thought it would make everyone more comfortable and my girls would like it more….and they did! I found my bridesmaid’s rompers on Etsy, they were super cute, something my girls could wear out with wedges or heels, a great price, and I highly recommend. I was aiming for the look of the Show Me Your Mumu Roxy romper. The Roxy romper comes in so many colors and patterns & they have a beautiful white lace romper for the bride. I wore a white lace Roxy romper by Show Me Your Mumu, but here is the white crisp one. I wouldn’t change which rompers I got for myself and my girls for anything. They looked so amazing in the photos and everyone was super happy with them!
