Is It Mandatory to Give a Gift to Attendants?
It’s not mandatory but usually customary to present the bride attendants a gift. They can be a unique as the person or all the same type of gift. No one wants to hurt or offend by not having a well thought out gift. It’s an old saying “It’s the thought that counts”. Well that’s a half truth. The gift does matter and usually one can tell if much thought was put into the gift. Right? It is however, to express your attitude for their attending the wedding.
There’s a gift that can be personalized and is a favorite of wedding parties. A basket can be as expensive or thrifty as you want. Having that thought in mind, you can personalize it with a handmade gift, or a frilly basket laden with spa rewards your bridesmaid or maid of honor will simply love. Another favorite is the beauty basket with travel size products that are easily used. Oh and having a few bars of gourmet chocolate will complete any basket.
Beautiful Baskets or Plain Jane Baskets
Each basket can be different as to the personality of the person receiving it. Keep it anchored with colors and flowers that coincide with the wedding colors. Ribbons add that special touch that blends in wedding colors. You can even include a small tote with an embroidered name on it. Every woman needs a small tote from time to time. Fill the basket with a bottle of wine, grapes, cheese and gourmet crackers, then add a candle of romantic nature for her sweetheart. You never know, there could be another wedding to plan soon.
Keep It Simple Sweetheart
You are also able to make it quite simple by ordering a custom made basket that lets you let them know how much you care. MAST Brothers Chocolate can be ordered in small sizes in a variety of flavors that would match the bridesmaid’s tastes. Decorate the basket with colors of the wedding and a few pieces of fruit that complements the colors. You could use flowers and ribbon to decorate the basket with chocolate bars and a card that lets them know they are going to receive an order of chocolate later into the year.
Baskets are the go-to wedding favorite because they are so versatile and easily made personal. From candy to jewelry and all in between can fill your basket so it will be seen. Make sure your bridesmaids know your appreciation for being there for her during this glorious time.
